According to Pantone, blending the faithfulness and constancy of blue with the energy and excitement of red, Very Peri is happiest and warmest of all the blue hues.

3 Sizzling Summer Recipes for the Grill

We’re always in search of our next favorite recipe and dish on the grill. Darren at BBQHost.com recently shared his top 3 sizzling recipes for summer grilling and backyard barbecues.

“These  fresh set of recipes are a great way to kick off the grilling season.  With this menu, you can use the grill of your choice to prepare every aspect of the meal, from the mouthwatering main course to the sweet treat you’ll indulge in afterward. We’re starting with the unexpected–turkey burgers “tartare”.


#1 Turkey Burgers “Tartare”


No, we’re not suggesting that you eat raw ground turkey—in fact, that poses a serious health risk. Instead, we’ve jazzed up the poultry by adding steak tartare-inspired ingredients. These burgers are best served on toasted English muffins with a smear of extra Dijon mustard.

Yield: 4 servings


  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 medium shallot, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons capers, drained and finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
  • 4 English muffins, split and toasted
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Neutral oil for the cooking grates (canola works well)


  1. In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey, beaten egg, shallot, mustard, Worcestershire, capers, Tabasco, salt, and pepper.
  2. Form the meat into patties. Take care, as the mixture will be sticky and wet.
  3. Prepare a medium charcoal fire, or set a gas grill to medium (about 350 degrees). Lightly oil the grilling grates. Because this mixture forms a looser burger than you might be used to with ground chuck, you might want to add interlocking panels or a similar attachment to the grates, to prevent the burgers from breaking apart and slipping through the grid.
  4. Grill the burgers, undisturbed, for about 8 minutes. Adjust the heat to medium-low and flip the burgers to the other side. Continue to cook until the meat is cooked through and the internal temperature registers at 160 degrees Fahrenheit, about 8 minutes longer.
  5. Serve with toasted English muffins and additional Dijon mustard, if desired.

We recommend pairing the turkey burgers will grilled zucchini.

#2 Grilled Herb Zucchini

Zucchini is a wonderful companion for the grill. Not only is it a snap to prepare, it can be ready within minutes. For a spicier kick, try substituting a lemon-pepper rub for the salt and pepper.

Yield: 4 servings


  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh herbs, minced (a mixture of parsley, basil, and rosemary works well)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest


  1. Trim the ends off the zucchini and cut lengthwise into planks about 1/2-inch thick.
  2. Prepare a medium-hot grill.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the herbs and lemon zest (or simply use Wayne’s Get Grillin’ Lick the Plate Garlic Butter seasoning)
  4. Brush the zucchini planks with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  5. Grill the planks, flipping once, until grill-marked and tender, about 3-4 minutes per side.
  6. Remove from the heat and sprinkle with the lemon-herb mixture and additional salt and pepper to taste, if desired. Serve immediately.

Finish the meal off with grill fruit and caramel!

#3 Grilled Pineapple with Toasted Coconut and Caramel

This unusual and delightful dessert can be made with simple supermarket ingredients. For a special treat, make your own caramel sauce in advance. Most versions will keep in the fridge for about a week.

Yield: 4 servings


  • 12 slices canned pineapple rings, drained
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sweetened coconut flakes
  • Vanilla ice cream, for serving
  • Caramel sauce, for serving


  1. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Add the brown sugar and stir until sugar is dissolved, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. In another, dry saucepan, toast the coconut flakes over medium heat until lightly browned. Set aside.
  3. Set your grill to medium, about 350 degrees.
  4. Brush both sides of the pineapple rings with the brown sugar mixture. There may be some of the mixture left over, and that’s okay–you don’t want to add too much to the pineapple, or it may burn.
  5. Carefully grill the pineapple rings, turning once, until grill marks appear and the sugars are caramelized, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  6. Serve immediately alongside scoops of ice cream, topped with the toasted coconut and caramel sauce.

This sizzling-hot trio forms a summer menu that you’re sure to return to time and again. Enjoy, and happy grilling!

  1. TEC grills are manufactured in the US with 304 stainless
  2. TEC grills use one of four different 100% infrared burners. One and two are resident and commercial. The third, the Cherokee burner, is an enhanced version of the residential burner.
  3. TEC grills have a wide temperature range from 200oto 900o For example, the G-sport grill average temperatures range from  250o to 850oF  while 500o to 850o F on average for the Cherokee model.
  4. TEC manufactures the only grill line that is totally infrared
  5. TEC features flare-up resistant burners

THE RESULT: Tender, Juicier Food. The more hot air a grill uses to cook food, the drier it will be, and traditional gas grills cook with 100% hot air. Even other infrared grills use about 65% hot air (and 35% infrared). But TEC’s patented, 100% infrared grilling system eliminates the hot air, so food retains up to 35% more of its own natural juices.

In addition, foods achieve a charbroiled flavor. Radiant glass panels below the cooking grates incinerate food drippings, creating a rich, smoky vapor that flavors the food. Now you can have it all – the convenience of gas and the charbroiled flavor of charcoal or wood, but without the ashy residue.

Whether you select TEC, Big Green Egg or other high performance grill, when you’re ready to upgrade your grill, we’re ready to help you uncover your grilling preference and select a brand that is best suited to deliver the most flavorful and delicious meal

Happy Grilling!

Dear Friends,

Pantone’s 2020 Color of the Year Provides Inspiration for Your Patio

Pantone revealed the 2020 Color of Year is Classic Blue. This is a great choice for outdoor furniture and accessories because this hue beautifully complements our coastal environment and opens a world of options for blending a classic color with modern design and accents.

The 2020 color is a nod to the first Color of the Year, Cerulean, another blue hue chosen in 1999 to capture a moment in time. The Pantone Color Institute selected Classic Blue to represent reassurance, confidence and a connection that people may be searching for in an uncertain global environment. Each year’s color is decided through a thoughtful process that takes into consideration lifestyle and industry trends.  Color influences can come from art, upcoming media, movies, lifestyles, socioeconomic and political conditions, travel destinations, new technology among other benchmarks.


For those who want to incorporate the 2020 color, consider accessories/pillows, outdoor furniture cushions and outdoor fabrics designed for backyards, patios and porches. Here’s some ideas for infusing Classic Blue in your backyard or outdoor room:

As An Accent

Spruce up your outdoor space with the color of the year (Classic Blue) by adding throw pillows that bring the perfect pop of color to almost any outdoor furniture—classic or modern design.

Above, the Ravello Woven Outdoor Furniture by Tropitone is warmed with Classic Blue outdoor pillows. This collection, designed by Robert Mainville, features long-lasting aluminum frame and TropiKane Bison Weave. The results is classic, old world charm with unsurpassed comfort.

Below, the Oasis Collection by Lane Venture gains a fresh coastal feel with classic blue outdoor pillows complemented by patterns and stripes in matching shades.

More Cushion

Another great way to infuse the color of the year is by selecting outdoor furniture with Classic Blue cushions. Brown Jordan‘s Parkway Modular Sectionals are a great example of incorporating this year’s classic blue hue with modern design.

Endless Options with Sunbrella Outdoor Fabrics

Do you have your own ideas? Sunbrella durable outdoor fabrics come in a variety of colors including Pacific Blue (a similar blue hue to this year’s classic blue). This fabric offers UV protection and is extremely durable for Destin’s harsh coastal conditions. Consider selecting Sunbrella fabrics for awnings, umbrellas, custom cushions and more.

We’re ready to help refresh your patio and bring a fresh look to your backyard with this year’s classic blue hue. Visit our showroom at 32 Forest Shore Drive in Miramar Beach (one mile west of Silver Sands Premium Outlets) to explore the endless array of options or call us at 850-269-4666.
