Why this is a revolution in home grilling

Lovingly designed and built in our N Ireland factory, Trailblazer BBQ’s Alfresco 140 stainless steel charcoal BBQ has been beautifully hand-crafted to make outdoor living pleasurable and fun for the even the most dedicated home cook.

With its large stainless steel grilling area – capable of outputting up to 140 burgers per hour – it makes cooking for large gatherings a breeze. Its unique adjustable height grill and clever heat control system enables you to BBQ like a pro (and never burn a burger again!)

Built in glass viewing windows on Trailblazer’s iconic gull-wing doors with multiple fixing positions features a handy temperature gauge. Ideal for low and slow cooking. Keep a close check your temperature critical grilled meats and longer cooks when the doors are closed using out self sealing temperature probe vent to run probe wires from them to your monitor on the outside.

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.

Use the four large polished staniless steel work surfaces to prepare and tend your dishes and dressings, rubs, and sauces before, during and after cooking. You can even remove two of them for compact storage with your Alfresco 140.

Never hunt for your BBQ gear again. Keep it all in one handy place with Alfresco 140’s built-in stainless steel double door 25 litre storage compartment.

When you’re finished, keep all your BBQ gear in one place in the large built-in storage cupboard. And the built-in towing hook and towing rod make it a breeze to pulll your charcoal grill in to any position you require.

Frequently Asked Questions – your burning questions answered.

Your burning questions answered. If there’s anything you would still like to know, please contact us – we always love talking to people interested in joining the Trailblazer family. (They say you can’t choose your family. But our family have chosen us!)

Will my Trailblazer operate in windy conditions?2021-08-03T16:02:07+01:00

Unlike most gas alternatives that struggle in windy conditions, a Trailblazer BBQ will thrive in all weather conditions.

Trailblazer’s innovative design allows for double sided cooking so make sure that you stand with the wind to your back so as any light smoker or flare ups blow away from the operator.

If the wind really picks up or becomes irritating, simply close one gull wing door and let it instantly become a wind break, giving shelter to both the grill & chef.

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 does the adjustable grill work?2021-08-03T15:57:44+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!

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.2021-08-03T15:26:30+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.

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

Your beautiful new BBQ grill will be delivered to your door as quickly as we can arrange it. Delivery in the United Kingdom and Ireland usually takes two to three working days from when it leave us. All orders are processed within 2 to 3 business days (excluding weekends and holidays) after receiving your order confirmation email. You will receive another notification when your order has shipped.

We will call or email you to confirm when it is shipped and when it is due to be with you. In addition our shipping company will endeavour to call you confirm exact time of delivery. International shipping will likely take a bit longer due to customs and freight handling but we will let you know as soon as we have your box booked to go.

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!

Do you offer a gas alternative?2021-08-03T16:37:10+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!

Is It easy to add more charcoal?2021-08-03T15:59:41+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.

Can I close the gull wing doors after cooking?2021-08-03T15:28:12+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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Will my Alfresco 140 rust?2021-08-03T15:54:16+01:00

No, the Alfresco 140 will not rust! The Alfresco 140 BBQ grill has a full stainless-steel interior. The exterior frame is galvanised then powder coated to give full weatherproof protection all year round.

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?

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

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.

What do I do if it rains?2021-08-03T15:42:05+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 conditions).

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.

3 reviews for Alfresco 140 Stainless Steel Luxury Charcoal Grill BBQ

  1. Tom Bell

    The Trailblazer Alfresco 140 is one of the best purchases I have ever made. Apart from the beautiful aesthetics of the BBQ, the build quality and materials used are second to none. The Alfresco has changed how we entertain and socialise. The Alfresco is very much centre of attention at any family gathering and inevitably the med congregate around the BBQ. I am learning new grilling techniques and am now experimenting with different charcoals and heat box setups, which is very interesting and enjoyable. Currently, I am using Binchotan Charcoal which is a joy.

    The customer service I have received from Trailblazer is 100% and nothing can be too much trouble for the team. I am really looking forward to them designing and manufacturing a Fire Tunnel for the 140 so that I don’t have to waste my money on an Ooni.

    Overall a fantastic well designed and manufactured product. Do not hesitate to buy one, you’ll not regret it. PLUS… you’ll be supporting a local family business.

  2. Jo Logan

    We are delighted with our Trailblazer BBQ. The photographs do not do it justice as the actual BBQ is very well made and looks amazing. We had all our questions answered during our very informative handover and are looking forward to many great BBQs in the years ahead! Would highly recommend Trailblazer if you’re looking for a quality product delivered with great service and professionalism.

  3. Darryl Collins

    I am absolutely delighted with my Alfresco 120 BBQ acquired during lockdown in 2020. The Trailblazer team were so easy to talk to, giving lots of great advice and so helpful. The build quality of the product is first class – they use stainless steel throughout that is easy to maintain and clean with no unsightly rust. It’s a very sturdy grill and the ability to raise and lower the grilling surface makes a world of difference. With the high level warming self and the ability to close the gull wing doors to make it more like a BBQ oven, it’s given me so many new options for my cooking. The large removable preparation shelves on the sides means I no longer have to use a separate table or platform – no more dropped sausages hopefully! Cleaning the firebox is so easy now – just use the built in scraper to scoop the ashes into the attached ashes drawer for easy disposal. I’ve had mine since last summer and left it outside without a cover all winter (don’t judge me!) – half an hour’s cleaning with warm soapy water and it’s like new again. Really, this machine is a revelation – built to use, built to last. Bravo Trailblazer. This is the BBQ against which all other prosumer charcoal BBQs should be judged. (Full disclosure – I liked the company and its products so much I joined the team to manage their website. But I stand her every word of the above review!)
