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.

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.
Mmmmm... if you've never had fresh Portavogie King Sea Scallops cooked on a Big Green Egg then, as they say, you just haven't lived and when they're cooked directly on the coals by our friend, private dining chef Jasper Castel, it simply doesn't get any better.
