Road-testing Traeger Grills at The Stove Yard this Saturday

It's one of the nice things about working at The Stove Yard – when the weather starts getting better we get to thinking about cooking outdoors and to start planning our famous demonstrations on the barbecues and grills we sell. We're all big fans of cooking outdoors so our regular Saturday morning demos are no real hardship for us and of course, along with our customers, we also get to tuck into whatever we've rustled up. More often than not the ingredients come from local County Down specialist suppliers. I still haven't quite got over the excellent Portavogie scallops cooked to perfection on the Big Green Egg.

This season we'll be getting to grips with the latest addition to The Stove Yard's outdoor cooking collection – the magnificent American-made Traeger Grills and Smokers and their outstanding collection of authentic rubs and sauces. We've already had one short mid-week trial run on the Pro 780 (£1,199) which delivered some drop-off-the-bone chicken wings and Simon's quick and easy Brioche Bun Pizzas. As you can see from the photo, they look nothing like Pizzas, but my goodness they were certainly mighty tasty and again they were cooked to perfection.

Altogether we've found cooking on the Traeger Grill surprisingly easy with its renowned single 'set it and forget it' temperature control which does away with all of the guesswork normally associated with traditional barbecues. The Traeger is also very quick to light and get to temperature and being wood fired (wood pellets) you also get that subtle dimension to the food flavours we all love about barbecued food. At The Stove Yard we have a big choice of Traeger Grills on display in our Newtownards showroom with prices starting from just £549 (Traeger Ranger) as well as stock to take away on the day. So let us show you just how easy wood fired flavour is when you barbecue with a Traeger Grill – see you on Saturday morning (9.30 until 12.30).

Wood Burning Stoves in New Build Houses

Check out our 18-page guide: Stoves and New Builds.

It really pays to think about this as soon as possible, even if you're not quite ready to fit one right away. When a wood burning stove is planned in from the very start, in many cases, it could help you to reduce its installation costs. It will also simplify dealings with Building Control and it will improve your SAP calculation. Better still, If the stove is for a new-build you can even claim the 20% VAT back. Read more...

All homes should have built-in energy independence

This is perhaps, the one lesson that should be learned from the war in Ukraine and the additional impact it has had on our energy prices. Energy prices go up all the time but this year the average homeowner can expect to see a staggering increase of £700 added to their £1300 annual bill. In the meantime wholesale, oil and gas prices are still rocketing (check out the graph below of the last 7 weeks)... read more.
