Talk to any foodie about the biggest cooking trends of the past few years, and they will no doubt mention smoking. The appetite for smoked food – anything from ribs to cheese – shows no sign of slowing and Sheffield-based manufacturer Trianco is looking to capitalise on this.

Trianco – best known for making boilers – has developed a range of high-end barbeques and smokers aimed and the domestic and restaurant markets, which is being sold under the guise of its new brand, Grizzly Ovens.

“It has taken over a year to develop the range,” explains Peter Beighton, managing director of Trianco. “There is a big push towards smoking food for a long time. You can leave these ovens to cook low and slow overnight. On the back of the Grizzly oven there is a hopper that you fill up with charcoal and a mix of flavoured wood and that will burn low and slow for 15-18 hours at around 100 degrees. Or, you can opt not use the hopper and use the grill as normal and cook at 250-350 degrees.” Wood pellet versions are also available self lighting is standard set your desired temperature on the digital panel fill the hopper with your chosen flavoured pellets its as easy as that.

The ovens are available in three contemporary colours or brushed stainless finish and can be customised to suit the customers’ requirements.

While the Grizzly Oven range was only launched a month ago, Peter says that the company has received a lot of interest in them and already sold some into restaurants including the famous Bushmills Hotel in Ireland, as well as to domestic users. The company also has distributors in Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland for the range.

Now, the company is focused on promoting the ovens. For instance, Grizzly Oven will be attending the Restaurant and takeaway show 19th and 20th of November. Peter adds they are looking for more distributors for the products, including overseas – “it’s always summer somewhere,” he says.
