With the longer, warmer days finally on their way, at last it's time to dust down that rusty old barbie and head for the great outdoors to enjoy food as nature intended – al fresco, relaxed and informal. For lots of us this time of year also means an annual trip to buy a new barbecue because the old one just hasn't gone the distance. So why not consider a barbecue that's built to last. One that top chefs from all over the world cook on. One that's so practical and easy to use and cooks your meat so well that you'll just want to cook on it all-year round. In that case, there's really only one choice...

The Big Green Egg is just such a barbecue and is justifiably famed for providing the ultimate barbecue cooking experience. Ask Bangor's award-winning Boat House Restaurant who cook on one. The Egg is more than a barbecue too – you can also use it as a pizza oven and even cook bread in it. In fact, it's a comprehensive outdoor cooking system and, with its lifetime guarantee, it's no wonder that over the years the Egg has won thousands of fans and admirers. Many of whom own two or more.

Some of the Big Green Egg's biggest fans are here in Newtownards. So if you want to find out more about the Big Green Egg and why it's in a different league from your average BBQ then head straight to The Stove Yard. They have a huge display of all the different Eggs and every Saturday morning they'll be cooking away on one (free food!) and when they get home they'll probably cook on an Egg over the weekend as well. With a variety of sizes available, there is a Big Green Egg for everyone, including a small version for camping, caravanning or boating.

Once you've seen the Big Green Egg in action and experienced the taste sensation it delivers, maybe then you'll have to admit that your old barbecue has finally had its time in the sun. The Big Green Egg – probably the only barbecue you'll ever need to buy.

At The Stove Yard we've been saying it for years (since we first opened our doors in fact): wood burning stoves deliver renewable, low carbon, affordable heat. Many of today’s wood burning stove owners are happy to tell you that they have been doing their bit for the environment long before carbon reduction and air quality targets made daily headlines. In the last five years it's estimated that nearly 750,000 homes have installed a new stove – many of them replacing open fires and older stoves, ensuring that stoves also make a genuine contribution to economic growth. It's vital therefore that we do not overlook this well-established and much loved method of heating our homes as the country rises to the challenge of the new carbon reduction targets that are soon to become more

The Northern Ireland Assembly's Climate Bill
and the stove industry's response

In February 2020 the Northern Ireland Assembly declared a climate emergency. The Climate Bill aims to ensure that Northern Ireland meets legally binding net-zero carbon emissions targets by 2045. Northern Ireland is the only part of the UK without such targets. In March of this year the Republic of Ireland approved a similar bill with a net-zero target by 2050. All of this is to limit the consequences of climate change.

I'll admit it, when I was young and daft there was a time when I would have happily burned driftwood, not only on the beach watching the sun go down, but in my open fire at home as well. Free fuel, what could be better? Well, just about anything else actually. It might look great with its smooth sun-bleached and apparently bone dry, bark-free surfaces but I'm pleased to tell you that I know much better now. I'm definitely done with it, so let me explain why you should avoid it if you haven't already.
