About Us

Are you an avid griller and smoker? Love to entertain and blow friends and family away with perfectly done brisket, ribs, or pork roasted low and slow?

Thanks for checking out our store. Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, I’m a passionate cook hobbyist who loves grilling and smoking year ‘round — even in crappy PNW weather. I spent ten years working in restaurants. That work experience sparked my interest in cooking and taught me that a few simple ingredients can create incredible dishes. It also helped me think creatively about food. Having fun and cooking great meals is contagious. My family spends a lot of time in the kitchen cooking together, sharing recipes with friends and family, and coming up with goofy shirt ideas.

225° Customs was born by combing passions - 30 years of professional graphic design experience + love of grilling and smoking! My design recipe consists of some tasty design work, a pinch of “baditiude”, and a dash of humor resulting in apparel graphics my family hopes you’ll enjoy. Humorous, comfortable grilling gear our friends love to wear when we get together for some great food, friends, and family time. We hope you enjoy these products and wear them with pride - or gift them to friends and family. We’d love to hear from you especially if you have suggestions to improve on products or to create some additional designs for you. 

Happy cooking, grilling, and smoking - in style!
