Meet Ross


A father, a hubby, a pooch fanatic. Lover of the outdoors, the good times, great banter and of course food.

Ross fell in love with smoking on an ill fated trip to the United States in the mid naughties. Since returning home, he has perversely endeavoured to recreate the tastes and smells that he fell in love with and to share it with family and friends. After a career in the Oil & Gas industry ended abruptly, he put into place the plans he had for years and started Fox Hat. Fox Hat is Ross’ lifestyle and a combination of every one of his passions and interests…his love of Land Rovers, cooking outside with fire, the outdoors, partying and eating with family and friends.

Let the good times roll.

Fox Hat is largely inspired by the simpler things in life. The outdoors, great company, great food and the sheer love of bringing people together. We celebrate the art of smoking meats, creating great flavours and the idea that with great food comes good times. We are passionate about food and equally passionate about the people we get to meet along the way. A totally relaxed, versatile approach to catering, whether it be on a smaller street food styled scale, or a bigger event such as a wedding. Our aim is simple; create amazing flavours and foods that are memorable and leave you wanting more.
