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 breeze. 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.
