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

Ingredients:

  • 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)

Directions:

  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

Ingredients:

  • 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

Directions:

  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

Ingredients:

  • 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

Directions:

  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!

TEC Grills Added to Offering of Best High Performance Grills in Destin

It is summer grilling season and families are heading outdoors. Whether you’re grilling around the pool or on the patio, grill masters are putting their skills to the test. For those looking for a premium grill in and around Destin, Fla., we’re proud to carry the best selection of high performance grills in Northwest Florida.

This summer, we’ve added TEC infrared grills to our collection of premium grill brands. From Broilmaster gas grills to Big Green Egg smoker/grill, our collection of premium grills are among the leading American-made grills on the market.

If you’ve settled on an infrared grill, TEC offers some of the best infrared grills available on the market today. They are the only 100% infrared grills made in America. TEC uses the highest quality stainless steel and are made to last. The best value for the dollar, TEC grills are affordable yet durable.

TEC developed and introduced the world’s first infrared gas grill in 1980. More than 30 years later, TEC’s first customers are still cooking on their very first grills because they are built to last a lifetime. Therefore, they still make replacement parts for every grill ever made. Made in America and built using the finest grade of materials, including 304 stainless steel. TEC grills are built to last.

What makes TEC grills the best—THE ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY. With its patented 100% infrared grilled system, this grill can smoke, sear, barbecue slow and low and heat up fast. In fact, TEC can heat from 0-850° F in 10 minutes! With this grill there are no flair ups, no charring, no hot or cold spots. It heats quickly, and cleans easily.

What is different about TEC grills?

  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

Learn more about our collection of premium grills online or visit our showroom in at 32 Forest Shore Drive, Miramar Beach (just one mile west of Silver Sands Premium Outlets) or call us at 850-269-4666.

Happy Grilling!

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.

We are excited to announce that cook team registration is now open for the Sixth Annual “Eggs on the Beach” EggFest Cooking Competition, which will be held on Saturday, Sept.28, from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Seascape Resort in Miramar Beach.

As one of the official Big Green Egg Festivals held around the country, Eggs on the Beach cooking competition features many opportunities for cook teams to compete and win in a variety of categories, including “People’s Choice Awards”, “Judges Awards”, Non-profit cash awards, best booth décor award and more.

To participate, cook teams create bite size portions of their favorite recipes to be judged by the public as well as celebrity judges. Each team of up to six is given a large or extra-large Big Green Egg to use during the competition. Bay Breeze Patio provides the lump charcoal, fire starter, table, tent, paper plates, plastic utensils, napkins and toothpicks. Tasters vote for their favorites, as teams vie for bragging rights and prizes, including the grand prize, a brand new large Big Green Egg.

For the 2019 event, teams have the opportunity to win in a variety of categories. Cook teams may now enter in one of three divisions—corporate cook teams, backyard cook teams and non-profit cook teams. We’re also working on a great new group of celebrity judges, which will be announced this summer.

The Backyard Cook Team with the most taster votes will win the grand prize—a large Big Green Egg (valued at $1,110).  Second place will receive a medium Big Green Egg and third place will win a Mini-Max portable Big Green Egg. The top three Corporate Cook Teams with the most votes will earn trophies, and grilling accessories.

Non-profit Cook Teams have a chance to win cash prizes toward their cause. The team with the most taster votes will earn a $3,000 cash donation toward their cause. Second place will earn $2,000 and $1,000 will go to the third-place winner. All teams are eligible for the Judges’ Awards and the top three winning teams will be presented a trophy by a celebrity judge. Prizes will also be given for “best booth décor” and “best bite cooked with Knob Creek Bourbon”.

Proceeds from Eggs on the Beach benefit two local charities—The Fisher House of the Emerald Coast and Food for Thought. Located on Eglin Air Force Base, the Fisher House provides a “home away from home” for military families ensuring family members can be together during treatment for serious illness or physical/occupational therapy. Food For Thought aims to end food insecurity by serving students in Okaloosa and Walton County with backpacks filled with healthy meals and snacks for nights and weekends. In addition, tickets may be purchased for a chance to win a Big Green Egg and other items donated by area businesses with these proceeds also benefiting the charity partners.  In the past five years, Eggs on the Beach has raised nearly $136,000 for local charities.

For those who are interested in owning a Big Green Egg, the Demo Eggs that are used during the event will be pre-sold with nest (metal stand) and plate setter for a discounted price. Both Large and XL Eggs will be sold and all come with a limited lifetime warranty. Demo Eggs can be picked up after the event, between 4 – 5 p.m. on September 28.

Cook team registration is $50 for a team of six and each team member will receive a welcome bag, including a commemorative t-shirt and Wayne’s Get Grillin’ Rubs. Cook team fees are waived for non-profit cook teams, which are competing for a cash donation toward their cause. To register a non-profit call us at 1-850-269-4666.

Taster tickets are also on sale now with special advance pricing of $32.50/adult, $14/child (age 11-17) and kids 10 and under are free. To learn more or to register a cook team or purchase a taster ticket, visit www.EggsontheBeach.com

2019 Color of the Year

Many look to PANTONE for the Color of the Year but there are many companies involved in design and fashion that have their own predictions for the 2019 Color of the Year. In order to help keep your outdoor living space looking fresh and embracing the latest color trends, we’ve compiled a list of the top 2019 color of the year predictions.

 

PANTONE 2019 Color of the Year is Living Coral
Living Coral emits the desired, familiar, and energizing aspects of color found in nature. In its glorious, yet unfortunately more elusive, display beneath the sea, this vivifying and effervescent color mesmerizes the eye and mind. Lying at the center of our naturally vivid and chromatic ecosystem, PANTONE Living Coral is evocative of how coral reefs provide shelter to a diverse kaleidoscope of color. Vibrant, yet mellow PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment. Living Coral represents authentic and immersive experiences that enable connection and intimacy. Sociable and spirited, the engaging nature Living Coral welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity.

Behr’s 2019 Color of the Year is Blueprint
An honest, approachable color that conjures up the blueprints builders rely on to bring architectural designs to life, Blueprint creates a space where you can build your own reimagined life—where awareness of what we want to build for ourselves can transform into action.

Sherwin Williams 2019 Color of the Year is Cavern Clay
Sherwin-Williams revealed its 2019 Color of the Year is Cavern Clay. A warm terracotta color with ancient, elemental roots, Cavern Clay is a nod to midcentury modern style, but with the soul of the American Southwest, which together creates the desert modern aesthetic. Cavern Clay is a warm and earthy hue that is both casual and refined. According to Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams, the color embodies renewal, simplicity and free-spirited, bohemian flair.

 

People.com 2019 Color of the Year is Night Watch
People is even getting in the action. Their trend forecasters are declaring the color that will define 2019 is “Night Watch.”  A rich teal, this luxe shade was selected by People’s board of global color experts since it emulates the feeling of lush greenery and the healing power of nature, which is great for both indoor and outdoor spaces.

With these color trends in mind, we invite you come visit at Bay Breeze Patio (1 mile west of Silver Sands Premium Outlets) and view our offering of outdoor fabrics for pillows, cushions and shades. that complement and embrace the 2019 color of the year predictions. In addition, our Sunbrella kiosk is great tool for discovering your favorite textures and comparing complementing swaths.

How to cook your Thanksgiving Turkey on the Big Green Egg

It’s our favorite time of year! Fall grilling season, Thanksgiving feasts and holiday parties are just a few of the fun moments that make us love this time of year. How will you prepare your Thanksgiving turkey? There are three options—brined, injected or roasted. Each of these methods can be accomplished indoors in the oven or outdoors on the smoker or the Big Green Egg. Here’s a look at each so you can determine your turkey preference.

Roasted
Roasted turkeys may be cooked in oven  but we prefer them cooked on a smoker or Big Green Egg. Roasting a turkey is best done in a two-step process. Set the EGG up for indirect cooking with the temp at 325°F/163°C. Use a handful of pecan chips for a light, smoky flavor and to provide a deep brown color to the turkey. Spread the seasoning generously over the outside of the bird. Load the bird onto a Vertical Poultry Roaster or Rib and Roasting Rack, then place into a drip pan. Add the onion and celery to the drip pan. Fill the pan with chicken broth, wine, or water. Cook for 12 minutes per pound until the turkey has reached a safe minimum internal temperature of 165°F/74°C throughout the bird. Reserve the drippings from the drip pan to make gravy. For complete roasting recipe for turkey on the Big Green Egg, click here.

Brined
Soaking a turkey overnight in a solution of salt and water ensures moist results. When you add aromatics to the brine, the resulting roast is also infused with a subtle character all its own. You can brine a turkey for the oven or smoker.

Smoked Brined Turkey
Once you try brined turkey, you’ll soon want to try a “smoked” brined turkey. The turkey gains a subtle smoky flavor and is moist and succulent, and if you prefer a bolder smoky flavor, add more hickory or pecan smoking wood chips in increments during cooking. This turkey is great for holiday meals, and you can use the leftovers to make wonderful sandwiches.

This turkey has a subtle smoky flavor and is moist, juicy and delicious. To cook a smoked brined turkey on your Big Green Egg, click here for  Chef Kevin Rathbun’s delicious recipe. Or try Steven Raichlen’s Maple-Brined Smoke-Roasted Turkey recipe and prepared to be “wowed!’

Injected

Injected turkeys tend to have bold flavor. Click here to view two video recipes from Dr. BBQ, demonstrating how to prepare two holiday turkey flavors– an Injected Cajun Creole Butter Turkey and a Lemon, Pepper and Herb Turkey. If you are preparing a whole turkey, just double the injection recipe and inject into the thighs as well as the breasts. These are great recipes for Thanksgiving, Christmas or a delicious meal throughout the year.

Ready to get a Big Green Egg or enhance/build your outdoor kitchen? Contacts us Bay Breeze Patio at 850-269-4666 to discuss the joys of an outdoor kitchen.
