Just before Christmas our friend, private dining chef and Northern Ireland's very own barbecue cook extraordinaire, Jasper Castel, paid a visit to our County Down showroom to check out the latest Traegar Grills. Not being one to waste an opportunity where good food and good company is concerned The Stove Yard team contrived to make sure a turkey with all the trimmings could be readily at hand.
Well, it being Christmas and all, it didn't take too much to persuade Jasper to quickly fire up the Ironwood 885 Traeger Grill (it's so much faster than other barbecues) and rustle us up a full blown feast that was simply divine. Who knew you could cook Brussels Sprouts to perfection in a grill? Jasper also revealed his secret to creating the best gravy known to man or woman and it's not actually that difficult. Fortunately Richard was on hand to film it all as it happened, so if you want to check out just how wonderfully versatile it is to cook on the Traeger Grill (and exactly how to make the perfect gravy) then check out the Stove Yard channel on YouTube here.

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.
