October has come and gone and the cold weather and holidays are quickly approaching. We absolutely love this time of year to entertain and spend quality time with friends and family but sometimes it gets difficult to gather outside if it’s too chilly. The cold weather doesn’t stop us from cooking and entertaining guests outdoors because we have great fall gear. Plus, who doesn’t enjoy getting cozy and dressing in stylish fall outfits this time of year?! This blog is packed with some of our favorite fall gear that will help you thoroughly enjoy and get ready for the colder weather.
Grilling isn’t just for the summer months. For Thanksgiving this year, you can upgrade your Thanksgiving feast with a smoked turkey using Traeger’s Pellet Grills. Let’s be honest with each other here… cooking over real wood pellets just makes everything taste better! It’s a total game changer. It provides a better flavor to whatever you’re making and you can dial the smoke up or down depending on your preference. These grills are so versatile! You get a 6-in-1 experience: Grill, Smoke, Bake, Roast, Braise and BBQ. That’s right, with its oven-like temperature control you can bake and cook with confidence. It functions just like an oven with the temperature control…just set it and forget it (well, you won’t forget it because the delicious smell will overwhelm your senses)! Pauli loves this feature because it gets me more involved in daily meal preparations. You can even connect it to your smart phone and control your grill from anywhere—even your Apple Watch. The convention style of cooking provides even, consistent results every. single. time. which also gives us a major confidence boost because we know that the food will taste amazing every time we cook on this grill.

There is just no substitute for that warm fire vibe in the fall and that’s where the Halo Fire Torch comes in handy! The Halo Fire Torch is handmade in the USA and uses mesmerizing vortex technology to create resort style fire features for your backyard or patio. It radiates warmth so that you can stay cozy at night outside. The best part? It won’t blow out with strong winds! The more wind, the bigger the flame. It’s portable and durable for easy use on the go…bring it with you camping, tailgating, or to your next family/friend gathering! Here are three setups we love:
Vortek is vortex technology – tiki style! It’s the ultimate in design and performance. Halo Fire’s innovative design creates a highly efficient vortex by pulling in air through air gaps on from the side, as heat rises from the fire in the center. This is the vortex in which the tornado fire spins. With a fully integrated design, this is as close as it comes to a plug and play vortex torch. It’s the best way to add coziness to your backyard or patio! This is Halo Fire’s iconic styling with an intuitive and user friendly design. Easy refill and removable glass make it simple to care for.
In windy conditions, the flame expands and looks like stacks of windy halos – hence the name… Halo Fire! BIG Revo runs on OIL for up to 1 1/2 hrs as a tiki torch, and up to 5 hours as a table torch when using the Gator Fuel Bowl. This is perfect for parties and creating a cozy atmosphere for when your friends and family come over.
Set this Halo Fire Table torch in the middle of a table and instantly create a calming and cozy ambience.
