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).

DON'T BURN IT JUST BECAUSE IT'S FREE...
DON'T BURN IT JUST BECAUSE IT'S FREE...

With the current crippling energy prices many of us are going to have to rely more and more on our stoves and, if we haven't got a stove, our open fires. There's going to be a real temptation therefore to burn whatever we can lay our hands on rather than pay out for kiln dried or seasoned wood and smokeless coal. After all it's free fuel, isn't it? ...more

Please don’t. Instead, if you can, think seriously about installing one of the new breed of highly efficient, low emissions Ecodesign stoves. 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
