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.

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.

One of these will make your fuel go up to four times further than an open fire as well as save you serious money, both on the cost of your fuel, and also on how much you will need to use your gas or oil-fired central heating… read more
