ENTREPRENEURIAL BEGINNINGS

Growing up in Texas, brothers Hunter and Griff Jaggard were always avid outdoor enthusiasts, living an active lifestyle that included many hunting, fishing, camping and tailgating adventures. But preparing breakfast, lunch, or dinner outside was always a pain point in an otherwise enjoyable excursion. Frustrated by the lack of adequate cooking tools and methods to prepare delicious meals for friends and family outdoors, the brothers reimagined what cooking outside could be… and it didn’t take long to turn that commiseration into inspiration for a product that would go on to disrupt the barbecue and grill market. 

In 2010, after numerous failures with just about every grill available at the time, the brother team set out to develop a solution: the world’s most innovative portable cooker. Leaning on their Texas roots, they pursued a cooktop design based on Discada cooking, which lends itself to many types of cuisine preparations. While working full-time careers in commercial real estate, Hunter and Griff set aside time on nights and weekends to create what would ultimately become a high-tech outdoor portable cooking innovation that would finally provide a versatile option for outdoor cooking. Armed with a plow disc from a tractor and a welding shop for hire, the brothers set out to design an entirely new category of cooking that was portable yet bullet-proof, and could out-cook and outlast any gas cooker or grill on the market.

In 2017, after many years of testing, innovation, and product improvement, the brothers made the decision to resign from their 15-year commercial real estate careers and focus on their passion. On that day, FIREDISC® was born.
