A soldier in World War II, Hastings dreamed of Tipton's, his favorite barbecue restaurant, once located in Tulsa, and vowed to design a grill that would produce ribs as good as Mr. Tipton's. Upon returning from active duty, Hastings drew up the design and then teamed up with a friend, Gus Baker, a welder, who constructed the grill. Not long after, friends requested to purchase one of their own. Hastings was a true pioneer, innovating the first covered backyard charcoal grill that is still being sold today. He is quoted in his book saying, "Hasty-Bake, I'm proud to say, helped pioneer the art of 'covered cooking,' … Without the hood, a Hasty-Bake is just another brazier."
Today, the Hasty-Bake design receives continual praise from food and industry critics across the country. Built for the discriminating outdoor chef, each Hasty-Bake Charcoal Grill creates a cooking environment that produces meals that are superior in taste and quality. Each charcoal grill is constructed by hand from only the highest quality materials in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The patented adjustable firebox offers customers the flexibility to grill, bake or smoke their food.
"Although our company has undergone a lot of changes, what will never change is our commitment to excellence—from our quality materials to our hardworking attitudes," said Richard Alexander, Hasty-Bake Owner, and President. "We are thrilled with the chance to celebrate our rich heritage that started right here in Tulsa and look forward to many more years to come, producing the world's best charcoal ovens."
