Glass viewing windows allow natural light to illuminate the grill – even when doors are closed. Keep an eye on your grill whilst motioring the built-in thermometer. Ideal for low & slow cooks.

BBQ oven warming area

Lower level warming oven

We think the grill area is for grilling. The lower warming oven offers the perfect way to store cooked foods or a great way to melt cheese over your gourmet burgers. Ideal for a family lining up for seconds.

Temperature probe entry point & cover

Closely monitor your grilled foods even with the doors closed by running temperature probes through a sealing vent designed to keep you in control at all times. Up to four probe wires at a time.

adjustable air vents

Adjustable air vents for oven temperature control

Manage your cooking airflow for low and slow or indirect cooking using the adjustable roof vents on top of the Alfresco 140. Hot air draws the smoke up and out under your control.

Four large polished stainless steel work surfaces

Stainless steel surfaces so polished you can admire yourself as you cook – even if no one else does! Large, hygienic and stylish they give plenty of room for side dishes, food preparation and cooking utensils. Two surfaces are removable to allow for compact storage.

charcoal dividers for cooking stations

2 x Adjustable firebox dividers for cooking zone partitioning / ash scoops

Zone cooking couldn’t be easier – manage the amount of direct or indirect heat you require. Our supplied firebox dividers allow for searing stations that simply aren’t achievable by gas. Create up to three cooking bays – searing, grilling, resting. And when it’s done, the dividers double as ash scoops to make cleaning out a cinch.

‘Pully’ handle & built-in hook

No more wheels digging holes or leaving your ground like your local pitch and putt. Hook your charcoal BBQ grill with the supplied towing rod to its built-in towing point to gently tow it around. A cool manoeuvring handle on the gable end enables you to harness gusting winds to your advantage or pull your charcoal grill to a better location.

Charcoal loading chute / spreader

Included in your starter pack is a steel charcoal loading chute that doubles as a charcoal spreader. It acts as a precision guide when using large bags of commercial quality lumpwood charcoal. Keeps work areas clean from charcoal dust & can be used to spread or shape your charcoal within the firebox.

The Alfresco 140’s built-in lower warming oven / melting compartment is conveniently away from the grilling surface and gives you the flexibility to manage your catering with precision and flair. Keep your cooked food warm while you finish the final items in your spread and even melt delicious cheese over your burgers for that special touch.

Tell me about international shipping.2021-07-02T12:58:07+01:00

We ship globally from our base in Northern Ireland using an experienced international shipper.

What size is the box?2021-07-06T13:34:06+01:00

The box that you get is approximately L 1170mm x H 1300mm x W 970mm and weighs a bit over 70kg in total. It’s a big heavy box, and our shipping company will try to set it exactly where you need it, but you may need someone to help you move it if you change your mind before unboxing.

How large is the cooking area?2021-07-02T09:55:02+01:00

The Alfresco 140 has a 480mm x 760mm grill area and boasts a 140 BPH (burger per hour) engine meaning cooking for large families and social gatherings is a breeze. Just light & Ignite!

The 140 comes with two firebox dividers that allow for the overall cooking area to be divided into individual cooking zones or areas as and when needed. This is ideal for creating searing stations, sectioning the grill for smaller cooks or gearing up for indirect cooking.

How to indirectly cook with the Alfresco?2021-07-02T10:39:01+01:00

For longer cooks where you are wanting to use indirect heat, use the charcoal dividers to section off the firebox, arranging charcoal on each side, leaving the middle area clear to set a water tray / drip tray. Close the doors & use the roof vents to slightly regulate the airflow.

How long before the Alfresco is ready to cook on?2021-07-02T10:23:41+01:00

This is one we get asked regularly and the answer really depends on the charcoal and lighting methods you are using. Using Trailblazer Charcoal, we are lit and ready to cook on the Alfresco in about 6-10 minutes, this is quicker than what it takes to preheat a gas grill! Impressive right? Don’t worry, we will share our secret with you. Let us know your lighting methods – tag us on social media or use the hashtag #TrailblazerBBQ

How do I clean out the charcoal from my grill?2021-07-02T10:16:06+01:00

The Alfresco grill comes with two charcoal dividers/scoops. This allows for hassle free clean out. Simply pull the scoop through the firebox to gather all residue. Note – if using Trailblazer Charcoal, you will be pleasantly surprised at the lack of ash residue after use. It burns away to virtually nothing!

Can I move the grill whilst lit?2021-07-02T10:37:10+01:00

Yep! Move with the weather. The Alfresco 140 has CoolTouch panels and handles meaning it can be moved as and when required, even when loaded with lit charcoal.

Can I close the gull wing doors after cooking?2021-07-02T09:56:54+01:00

Absolutely! Once you have finished entertaining on the Alfresco and are ready to pack up, simply close the gull wing doors and keep the charcoal enclosed until it is completely extinguished and ready for clean out. Just make sure you don’t close up too early and forget about the s’mores!

Is shipping included in the price?2021-07-02T12:57:11+01:00

How does the adjustable grill work?2021-07-02T10:18:26+01:00

We use a specialist carbon fibre polycarbonate friction block to allow infinite / instant height adjustment of the grill. Simply rotate the winding rod clockwise to raise and anticlockwise to lower. Never burn a burger again and forget about flare ups!

Warranty claims are not applicable for countries outside the U.K. and Ireland. All international orders are final.

Is It easy to add more charcoal?2021-07-02T10:41:01+01:00

Replenishing the grill with charcoal could not be any easier. The adjustable grill gives instant access to the firebox even when loaded with food.

We recommend using a chimney to pre-light charcoal, once ready simply raise the grill up, set the charcoal chute in position and guide the fresh charcoal into the desired position.

How do I control temperature?2021-07-02T10:29:09+01:00

Unlike other charcoal grills on the market, the Alfresco 140 gives you the ability to instantly control the cooking temperature. You can instantly go from searing hot to slow cooking at the touch of a hand.

Simply rotate the winding rod clockwise to raise the grill from the cooking area and anticlockwise to lower it closer to the heat source.

What type of charcoal do you recommend using with the Alfresco?2021-07-02T10:34:05+01:00

The Alfresco 140 is a professional quality grill for home use, therefore we strongly recommend using only restaurant grade quality charcoal. Trailblazer Charcoal fits our BBQ range like a glove, and it is readily available 365 days a year. Please don’t be tempted by cheap and nasty alternatives, it will break your heart!

How do I clean my Alfresco 140 after use?2021-07-02T09:59:41+01:00

The Alfresco 140 is ridiculously easy to clean and maintain. The full stainless steel interior & doors, along with galvanised then powder coated body, means you can wash it with a hose and soap without having to worry about rust. We have even used quick release clips for attaching the grill mesh to its frame so as it can be taken off for a deep clean.

Trailblazer’s heavy-duty stainless-steel cleaner will make sure your luxurious Alfresco 140 is kept in pristine condition all year round.

Do I need a cover for my Alfresco 140?2021-07-02T10:07:10+01:00

No cover – no problem! Your Alfresco 140 is built like a car and ultimately requires no cover when sitting outside. We are aware however that many of our customers (both commercial & domestic) care for their Trailblazer BBQs like it’s their child, and for that reason, we will be introducing a cover for the Alfresco in the next while. Subscribe to our newsletter & you will be one of the first to know when we have this available.

Why won’t my grill frame stay at the desired height? My grill frame keeps falling when I wind it up.2021-07-02T10:45:33+01:00

No, your grill is not broken! You were just too excited to get grillin’ you forgot to read the user manual that we provide with every Trailblazer. We don’t blame you though, instructions seem so boring when you have a shiny new Alfresco posing in front of you.

Here’s a short video showing the simple solution to fix your grill from slipping.

What do I do if it rains?2021-07-02T10:05:04+01:00

Firstly, thank the heavens that you’re cooking on a Trailblazer and not a gas or electric alternative. Thankfully your Trailblazer will thrive in all weather conditions (especially handy for UK and Ireland’s climate).

If the rain is relatively heavy, you will want to adjust your door stay positioning on the Alfresco doors so as they sit slightly lower and shelter the grill area from rain.

Can I collect my new BBQ grill?2021-06-15T11:32:08+01:00

Absolutely – if you can make it to our HQ in Belfast, Northern Ireland! We love to meet new owners and talk BBQs and perhaps show you around our operation.

When will I receive my new BBQ grill?2021-07-06T13:21:47+01:00

Do you offer a gas alternative?2021-07-02T10:31:07+01:00

Really? Please tell us you’re joking!

Charcoal is our core, gas grilling is something that goes against everything we stand for, so for that reason we do not have any gas alternatives. If you’re used to gas alternatives then please prepare to be blown away by the Trailblazer charcoal grill, you will never look at gas the same way!

WHAT MAKES THE ALFRESCO 140 CHARCOAL GRILL BETTER THAN GAS & OTHER GRILLS?

GAS GRILLS: Unlike gas alternatives, your Trailblazer thrives in all weather conditions. You won’t need to worry about wind blowing a gas flame out or having to keep the BBQ tucked away, hidden from wind & the party. The gull wing door on the Alfresco 140 can be closed on one side to act as a wind block, keeping your cooking area sheltered even on a stormy night. It has even been designed with a heat proof glass window to ensure natural light is not obscured. Just wheel the Alfresco into the open and let it become the centre piece of any social gathering.

Many consumers (both professional and domestic) are under the illusion that gas barbecuing is more convenient than exciting, authentic charcoal grilling. THIS IS NOT TRUE. Using premium lumpwood and correct lighting techniques the Alfresco 140 can be lit and ready to cook on in under 10 minutes. That’s quicker than what it takes to preheat any gas BBQ!

PS: the Alfresco 140 doesn’t have any fancy light up buttons or digital dials to cause trouble at the first sign of water…

OTHER CHARCOAL GRILLS: Another misconception many people have associated with charcoal grilling is the inability to regulate heat. And the majority of the time this is correct.

Unlike other charcoal BBQ brands, one of Trailblazer’s unrivalled features is the adjustable grill heights, offering instant heat control. The ability to instantly regulate heat over a live fire cooking is just one of the many features that sets Trailblazer apart from other charcoal options.

Many kettle BBQs consist of a relatively small grill area making catering for large families a time-consuming hindrance. The Alfresco boasts a 140 burger per hour grill capacity making catering for small gatherings a bleeze. Just light & unite. It even has a lower warming oven to keep cooked food warm until it’s time for seconds.

KAMODO GRILLS: Egg-type grills have become very popular over the years and they cook well for what they are designed for. But Kamado grills are made out of porcelain making them very heavy, not very portable and quite fragile.

The Alfresco 140 charcoal grill sits on industrial castor wheels and comes with a pulling hook handle that has been specifically designed to prevent the front wheels from digging in when moving across stony terrain or grass.

The enclosed firebox and fully insulated walls keep the gables cool to touch even when the BBQ is lit. The Alfresco can be moved around the garden during the cooking process which is perfect for following the sun or shade!

PELLET GRILLS: You need power for the mechanical feed system of a pellet grills, and this can jam and breakdown when you least expect it. So you can only grill where there is electricity. Yes, they can produce a better flavour than gas grills, but they can be fiddly and temperamental.

Most cheap gas or charcoal grills are mass produced in China and rust or break over time. Don’t be the person who looks out their back window into your garden only to see a rust bucket propped up on only three of four wheels. Buy right & buy once. Our UK handmade BBQs come with a lifetime warranty. We are confident in our product and we want you to be too.

With a Trailblazer charcoal BBQ there’s no such thing as bad weather.
