About Us

It’s Always Barbecue Season At The World’s Largest Barbecue Store. 

A typical summer is filled with a scant 93 days, all of which seem to speed by in the blink of an eye. It behooves us Canadians to make the most of these cherished summer days. So head out to the backyard and fire up the grill. After all, nothing says summer better than the aromas of food sizzling or a kamado slowly rolling out a steady stream of smoke filling your senses with wonder. Why start and stop with summer? Spring, fall, and winter are amazing times to enjoy these senses as well. To get equipped with all the makings of great seasons, head to Turn Up The Heat’s super-sized location in Vaughan that’s been on the corner of Langstaff and Edgeley for over 20 years.


The TUTH team are all BBQ enthusiasts with a wide range of skills and an eagerness to share that knowledge to help you become the top grill master in your neighborhood.

Whether you’re a fan of propane, natural gas, pellet grills, barrel grills, offset smokers, kamados, pig roasters or even tandoors, this mega store’s selection will cause some serious jaw-dropping. Outdoor cooking devices in all shapes and sizes are the norm. A huge array of barbecues, smokers, gadgets and tools to crown you the Champion of the Grill.

Who knew the trendy Kamado Joe comes in 3 sizes and several models? Or that barbecues come in fashionable blue, crimson and orange? Or that with smart technology, your BBQ could text you when it’s time to turn your steak or that you can smoke a brisket while in a different city than your grill if you wish! Turn Up The Heat did. And happily, it’s all available for the rest of us.


Want to take your backyard up a notch? Check out the huge selection of uber stylish built-in outdoor kitchens, outdoor pizza ovens and backyard smokers – including many models you won’t find anywhere else. Turn Up The Heat’s experts will help design your outdoor oasis. Assembly and delivery of your new pride and joy is always available as well.  


Turn Up The Heat shops the world for sauces and charcoals to infuse your feasts with exciting new flavours.

A great grill is a definite must but Turn Up The Heat also has many more tasty ideas in store. Charcoal fanatics will love the Charcoal Room stocked with fuel from as far away as the Americas, Argentina, Paraguay, Colombia and the Philippines – it’s the size of most other stores’ entire barbecue displays!

And then there are the rubs and sauces – an entire wall devoted to over 50 different mouthwatering rubs and sauces imported from around the world. Toto, we’re definitely not in Kansas anymore - but we can take you there with some of our Kansas City style barbecue.


Some of us enjoy the action around the grill as much or more than the process. Add in outdoor furniture and voila!

Prefer to be an armchair outdoor enthusiast focusing on sampling the feast? Check out the extensive collection of designer patio furniture.
