When it comes to road-testing any of our new outdoor barbecue or grills you don't need to ask our County Down sales team twice – especially when our friend, chef Jasper Castel, is willing to rustle up some ever-so tasty baby back ribs and chicken wings to demonstrate just how easy it is to use a wood pellet fired Traeger grill and smoker. This summer was The Stove Yard's first season with Traeger and this was also the first time that Jasper had ever used a Traeger Grill – in this case the Traeger Ironwood 855, so naturally we had to film it. Traeger's precise temperature setting ensures that cooking on it, even for an absolute beginner, is a total breeze. As you'll see, it's perfection every time and so much easier than your average barbecue. No wonder Traeger have quickly become a best seller here in Newtownards. We've fallen in love with them and as for Jasper's succulent ribs and wings, we just couldn't get enough. Dare we add that a Traeger grill could make the ideal Christmas gift for someone really special, especially with the tremendous savings shown below.


Until December, the Stove Yard are currently offering a 20% saving on the Traeger Ironwood 855 – down from £1699 to just £1359. There's also special Black Friday deals on the Traeger Pro D2 575 (£899 down to (£699) and the Traeger Pro D2 780 (down from £1199 to £999). These offers won't last forever so please check them out here now.

After all the scaremongering and misinformation about stoves a national daily paper finally sets the record straight with a factual article on exactly what it costs to run a wood burner compared to electricity and gas. The Sun article makes welcome news to stove lovers everywhere who probably knew all of this anyway. Since the article was written before Firmus, one of Northern Ireland's two gas suppliers, announced that their price will rise by 38%, adding a further £267 to a typical annual gas bill, the comparison will now be much more in favour of stoves.

A large proportion of PM 2.5 emissions attributed by the government to domestic combustion actually come from unregulated outdoor burning such as bonfires. So expect to see a serious spike in particulate matter emissions after this year's bonfire night. The Stove Industry Alliance (SIA), of which The Stove Yard is a founding member, is keen to ensure that such emissions are properly recorded, reported and attributed... read more

Time to take a reality check about stoves and air quality. We recently came across this well-considered article 'Ban wood burning stoves? I think not' by Michael Bye at Ceramic Glass.
