Traeger’s Iconic Longhorn Steer @ South Coast Supply

Posted by cshumway on March 4, 2015

Located across the street from the historic Los Alamitos High School, you can’t miss SouthCoast Supply. Family owned and operated for over 24 years, South Coast Supply/Garden Daze is pleased to offer the entire line of Traeger Pro Series Grills, all 8 flavors of Traeger Hardwood Pellets, and endless Traeger accessories. The owners, Bonnie & Dennis, can be found grilling in the shop’s garden on weekends, giving BBQ enthusiasts the opportunity to sample different foods cooked using a variety of Traeger pellets, sauces & rubs.

One of the most eye-catching additions to their impressive collection is Traeger’s iconic Longhorn Steer. Produced in a barn in Mt. Angel, Oregon in the early 2000’s, Longhorn Steer grills are no longer in production, but they are an important part of Traeger History. During that time period, the Traeger Team experimented with striking designs that made a real statement about the playful nature of Barbecue. Joining the Longhorn Steer in the ranks: the Lil’ Pig, the Train, the Red Razorback, and the Tractor, all with the same versatile functionality of traditional, barrel-shaped Traegers.

So if you want to check out South Coast Supply/Garden Daze to stock up on building and garden supplies, and visit a little piece of Traeger history at the same time, stop on by. Bonnie and Dennis will be happy to see you, and they may even be Traeger’ing up some grub.

South Coast Supply is located at 3626 West Cerritos Ave. Los Alamitos, CA 90720. (562)430-7576. @southcoastsupplyinc

Traeger Insulation Blankets

Posted by mmillet on November 20, 2013

Those cold winds a blowin' mean one big thing when it comes to you and your Traeger: Heat Loss. Which means more pellets used and possibly longer cooking times. Ain't nobody got time for that!

The solution? Insulation Blankets. By using a snug insulation blanket in 35 degree weather, and below will help your Traeger maintains a consistent temperature while grilling, and you save money. (We know it all comes down to the money.) And we make them for several of our illustrous models.

INSULATION BLANKET FOR JUNIOR

INSULATION BLANKET FOR LIL' TEX/ELITE

INSULATION BLANKET FOR TEXAS

So don't let the cold weather bleed you dry or hold you back from your Traeger'ing (especially during the holidays!).

Traeger Essentials: Traeger's Texas Grill

Traeger Essentials: Texas Grill

Back to basics. We are currently running a sweet deal on our grills so we thought we'd remind you of just why Traeger's pellet grills are in a league of their own and never cease to amaze.

So let's start with the masterful bells and whistles of our Texas Grill.

The Texas has all of the standard features that make our grills superior like the high-tech auger-fed burner (fueled by our flavorful selection of wood pellets), multi-temp digital thermostat control, swift EZ-drain grease system and fire that ignites at the flip of a switch. It has all of that ingenuity and pure smoke power along with 646 square-inches of grilling and smoking possibilities. Since we're not all "number people", let's put 646 square inches into a language we can all understand. On the beast of a Texas grill, you can easily fit two full size chickens, a brisket and two racks of ribs. Now that's a mouthful.

Just imagine the feast that's awaiting you.

Traeger Essentials: SELECT Grill

Posted by mmillet on September 6, 2013

When it comes to our pellet grills, it's hard to pick a favorite. (And what parent would?) They each shine in their own way. Our Deluxe was quite the star, so of course we had to preserve her best features - and we even upped the ante. If you want all of the Deluxe's impressive grilling specs along with 37% more grilling space (that's right), then listen up. Traeger's Select Grill is your gal.

Traeger Essentials: SELECT Grill

This is the cream of the crop, here. The Select features a sleek design with high quality stainless steel trim, handy side tables and enclosed storage space. You also get 590 square inches of grilling area along with an 18 lbs. pellet capacity. That means you can grill and smoke all of those pork shoulders, man-sized briskets and extra large turkeys that you've been dreaming of - hours of uninterrupted smoky peace with no need to go running for a bag of pellets. All of that spacious grilling surface comes with an adjustable 36,000 BTU burner.  And the swanky wheels make relocation easy while locking in place when you're in action. This grill is not for the faint of heart.
