Grilling has been around almost as long as fire, even if it wasn’t always called that. In modern history, grilling was mostly confined to camping and hiking until after World War II. After the war, grilling as a backyard recreation caught on and the trend has never slowed. Outdoor cooking has become a mainstay in our families because it provides food, fun, bonding, and fresh air. If you don’t currently have a grill, you are missing out. Check out our selection of gas and charcoal grills for all of your basic needs. If you are looking for something a little more fancy, we carry beautiful brick ovens and porcelain grills that provide effortless gourmet. If you are always on the go, we even carry portable grills that are perfect for vacations and tailgating.
Thanksgiving is less than one week away! Fun, family, and food are sure to make your holiday a wonderful experience. Thanksgiving food staples are sure to be on your family’s table. Sweet potatoes, stuffing, and the oh so important turkey not only satisfy your stomach, but also your soul. This year, why not try something different with your turkey? By cooking your turkey using a non-traditional method, you can get the same comforting feelings of Thanksgiving and a delicious meal while creating exciting new memories and traditions.
Smoking your turkey will create an amazing flavor and super moist meat. Electric smokers cook food more evenly than a traditional charcoal grill. They maintain a constant temperature that’s easy to control so hot spots and flare ups are never a problem. By adding smoker flavor bisquettes, you can impart the subtle flavors of everything from apple to pecan (and even bourbon!) into your turkey. Smoking is a slow process that you will find very rewarding. Smoked turkey is so delicious that it will surely become a family tradition for years to come.
The Turkey Rocket Roaster is another fun alternative to traditional cooking methods and is great even if you are on the go this holiday season. It is a unique chamber that acts like a dutch over, cooking your turkey quickly and evenly. It uses charcoal to heat and creates that delicious, smokey flavor, but cooks in 2/3 less time than traditional methods. You can cook a 14 pound turkey in under 2 1/2 hours. This is much less time than regular grilling. It is lightweight but heavy-duty.
No matter which method you use to prepare your Thanksgiving feast, remember to take a moment to be thankful for all that you have. This is a perfect day to let go of all the things that are wrong in your life and focus on the positive. Enjoy spending time with your loved ones, and Happy Thanksgiving!
