The Rochelle Ace Grill Station There’s a high end grilling and smoking retailer on the rise in Rochelle and it’s worth some attention. Rochelle’s and beyond best selection of grilling spices and sauces you can put your hands on. It would give an “Online” merchant a run for its money. However this product you can touch, smell and take home today. Whether it's grilling spices, rubs, pellets, coals, supplies, or basically anything else, Ace of Rochelle has you covered. It would take you an hour to browse or more than 3 hours to thoroughly go through all the BBQ spices, sauces, and rubs. The much harder to find supplies you need to take your grilling and smoking game to the top level that are normally Online purchases are here as well. I looked in every major retailer in Rockford for butcher paper to take my brisket and Boston Butt to the next level but couldn’t find it. Here Josh carries 2 different sizes and brands. It’s now my goto source for what used to be hard to find gear. This is the store where backyard cooks can get premium BBQ grills, smokers, sauces, seasonings, and supplies. This area has never had a business so committed to providing the best and broadest range of BBQ sauces, seasonings, and supplies to backyard beginners all the way up to championship competitors as what the Rochelle Ace Hardware store has brought. This store’s selection is typical of a Chicago suburb shopping experience. Now it’s right here in the Rochelle area. This Ace Grill Station has been stocked by an enthusiast of outdoor grilling and smoking. If he had the room for outdoor kitchen showroom it would be there too. The manager (Josh) doesn’t just stock this large selection, he uses it, he is an experienced and knowledgeable BBQ cook who can not only recommend the best products for your specific needs, but he loves to share his tips and information that will improve the quality of your cooking. In my experience, he tries to build relationships with his customers, and to create something of a community where knowledge and experience can be shared, and friendships formed. When I stop in to pickup supplies and start to talk BBQ his eyes light up. Now that’s somebody you want to buy from and I believe he wants to help folks enjoy it as much as he does. It really doesn’t matter if you’re a seasoned competition pro; an ambitious contest cook eager to take it to the next level; or a backyard BBQ enthusiast looking to impress your family and friends; Josh is the man who can help you get there. I’ve wanted to share this information for some time. Why? Because the more people who use this jewel, the longer it will be around. And Josh is the type of business man that if he doesn’t have it, it probably needs to be shared with him so he can carry it. And you know what, next time you’re in shopping for your grilling or smoking needs, ask him when will he be hosting the ACE sponsored smoke competition in their parking lot.
Response from the owner
WOW!!!! What a great statement. Thank you so much for taking the time to write this. It’s a great section for us and we are going to continue to find new and different items to add. Thanks for helping us make our store better!
I can't say enough good things about this place. The staff are friendly they have a great selection tools and all things hardware related. They have a really good selection of meat seasonings. I like the fact they have some of the unique stuff that other places don't carry
This used to be a Do it Best before Ace bought them out. We always shopped there before Ace took over they had wonderful service and acceptable prices. We always bought our bottled water for our water cooler from them as well. When Ace took over they almost doubled the price of the bottled water and other items in the store. Then to make matters worse they changed water companies to make more money and went with Pure Flo water that is the most God awful tasting and smelling water. It tastes and smells like over chlorinated pool water. This stuff can not be good for a body. We will not be buying water from here anymore. It is worth it to drive 45 minutes for spring water for less cost even.
