We’ve got some new grills to talk about. We’ll start with Traeger, where they haven’t announced any new grills, but we think we know what they’ll release soon. It appears retailers are gearing-up for a new Ironwood and a new gas griddle called the Flatrock.
The new Ironwood is going to follow the looks and naming convention of the Timblerline that was released last year. The larger version is dubbed the XL and is a little bigger than the current Ironwood 885. The new ironwood has a touchscreen controller, the Pop-And-Lock accessory rail, and EZ-Clean, just like the Timberline.
The Flatrock is a 3-burner griddle that will have insulated zones, and a wind guard. It’s 18″ x 33″, for 594 square inches of cooking area. Other features include a Pop-And-Lock accessory rail, EZ-Clean grease management and a hard lid that’s hinged.
Over at Pit Boss they’re planning to release a new Pro Series pellet grill in conjunction with Lowe’s. This is their flagship grill and, like the Ironwood, has a touchscreen, WiFi and Bluetooth enabled controller. It also has improved ignition and a light in the cook chamber for night cooking.
To pair with the new Pit Boss Pro Series, they’ve released Post Oak pellets exclusively with Walmart. Unfortunately, it appears to be only released regionally, so I’ll miss out on the central Texas flavor here in Michigan.
Pitts & Spitts launched an accessory for their Maverick pellet grill line that will give you more smoke flavor. It’s a smoker box that sits next to the fire pot, and leverages the airflow from the fan. It’s a neat solution, and doesn’t require a new grill.
Breeo doesn’t want to be left behind by Solo Stove in the fire pit accessory department. They’ve released a heat deflector to help keep your legs warm by the fire. It utilizes the Outpost Rod that their cooking system works with.
Finally, Ooni is staying true to their vision and officially became a Certified B Corp. It requires them to meet certain standards for ethical operations. It also requires that their Articles include a commitment to all stakeholders of the business.
