Creative Outdoor Kitchens with Stainless Steel Outdoor Kitchen Appliances

Joseph Coupal - Friday, June 23, 2017

West Sport, Sudbury, Boston, MAWhether you covet a grill and food-prep station on wheels or a built-in BBQ island with fridge and bar seating, don't hit the grill center before reading this expert guide to creating a first-rate backyard outdoor kitchen.

Zero in On the Type of Outdoor Kitchen That's Right

Movable: A smart choice for small spaces that multitask—as cookout central one day and a garden hub the next. Start with a portable charcoal or gas grill fitted with heavy cast-iron or stainless-steel grates and an easy-to-clean grease trap. For storage and counter space, add a rolling cart with shelves.

Prefab: An all-in-one option for folks with more square footage and cash to spend. The basic setup typically includes a stucco-clad 5-foot outdoor kitchen island with tile counter, drop-in gas grill, and access doors for a propane tank. Extras, including granite counters, a refrigerator, and LED lighting, are ordered a la carte. DIYers can get cooking with a prefab outdoor kitchen island on delivery day.

Custom: A built-in-place kitchen, whether crafted by a pro or a handy homeowner, offers integrated stainless steel outdoor kitchen appliances, storage, and counter space, as well as the most flexibility in terms of matching the kitchen's materials and style to its surroundings. A larger layout, extensive lighting, in-ground utilities, and a pergola-style roof add convenience but also raise the price.

Regardless of the type you choose, The Fireplace Shop and Grill Center at West Sport can help you with creative outdoor kitchens that meet your needs and your budget. Contact us today.

Benefits of Infrared Gas Grills – Boston, Sudbury, MA

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, May 24, 2017

West Sport in Sudbury, MAQUICK PREHEAT, EASY GRILLING: Preheat your infrared grill on high in as little as 3-5 minutes! Infrared heat cooks food faster as well. Life is bus and sometimes don't have time to grill after work during the week. This quick pre-heat and faster cook time allows you to grill more during the week and not just on the weekends anymore!

JUICIER FOOD: Infrared grilling means your food will retain up to 35% more of its own natural juices, which produces incredibly tender and juicy results.

EVEN HEAT: Infrared grills can provide very even heat distribution across the grill, reducing the hot and cold spots often found on non-infrared grills.

STEAKHOUSE QUALITY SEARING: The majority of infrared grills reach incredibly high searing temperatures to produce mouthwatering, restaurant quality steaks. That said, infrared grills are not just high heat grills anymore. Technology has improved over the years and several infrared grills allow you to cook with precise control on low heat as well.

MINIMAL FLARE-UPS: One of the most inconvenient hassles of traditional gas grills are the unpredictable flare-ups. Infrared grilling drastically reduces the chance of flare ups.

ENERGY EFFICIENT: Compared to traditional gas grills, infrared grills burn less gas to reach the same temperature, saving you money on fuel.

EASY CLEAN-UP: Most infrared grills are super easy to clean, by simply turning the temperature to high when finished cooking. This will turn any food particles and residue into ash for a quick and easy clean-up!

What is an Infrared Gas Grill?

For many people, the idea of infrared is somewhat of a mystery. Infrared Gas Grills maximize flavor, energy, and convenience by utilizing an infrared cooking system as opposed to a convection cooking system found on traditional gas grills.

All food is surrounded by a moisture boundary, which is a layer of air and water molecules. The hot air generated by other grills can’t penetrate this boundary without disturbing it, so food is exposed to the drying elements of hot air as it cooks. Infrared energy doesn’t disturb the moisture boundary, so food retains up to 35% more of its own natural juices, remaining tender and juicy.

Infrared gas grills have been around since the late 70s when the first ceramic infrared burner was patented and brought it to the BBQ industry. Since then, innovation has brought several different cooking systems and brands to the infrared grill industry and their popularity continues to grow.

The Best Grills, Reviewed – Boston, Sudbury, MA

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, May 17, 2017

West Sport, Sudbury, MAKnowing you've got a summer's worth of outdoor cooking ahead of you, Popular Mechanics spent all winter testing grills that use all types of fuel.

We grilled everything imaginable—swordfish, some kind of spicy Portuguese sausage, more steak than you could shake a pair of tongs at. We didn't go hungry during this test. And we did it all for you.


We grilled in a blizzard. We grilled in the dampness of early spring, the smell of cold mud competing with brisket. We grilled morning, noon, and night, dragging these contraptions in and out of the barn, running test after test, all so that we could deliver this report with timeliness and authority.

Not that we're complaining. And through it all, we learned that we are living in the golden age of grilling. So often we hear that things were better decades ago—the food was fresher, the sky bluer, and all you needed was a Weber in the backyard. But patio cooking has been reanimated. Across this great land people are searing, roasting, braising, and smoking like never before, learning from the Internet or those chefs on TV. Grills have proliferated.

We came to many conclusions, the most important of which is this: There is one here for you.

One of the best gas grills is the SABER gas grill

  • FUEL: Propane
  • COOKING SURFACE: 675 sq. in.
  • LIKES: A beautiful cooking surface with a diffuser underneath that allows nothing to fall on the burners. Heats up quickly and evenly, even in the corners. You can use every square inch of its cooking surface.
  • DISLIKES: A small complaint: The temperature markings on the knob are these thin, little lines that are difficult to read.

SABER Gas Grills Use a Better Infrared Cooking System - Boston, Sudbury, MA

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, May 03, 2017

You don’t have to be a chef to cook like one—even the first time you fire up a SABER gas grill. You may have heard about infrared grills (IR). Maybe you even have one. But you have not had one like this.

SABER infrared grills use a proprietary IR cooking system that’s so advanced you can actually taste the difference. It keeps meat naturally juicy and tender, even when cooked medium or well done.


The Juiciest, Most Mouth-watering Meals You’ve Ever Cooked

SABER gas grill’s exclusive and patented Infrared cooking system generates infrared heat. Radiant heat, unlike convection heat used by traditional gas grills, directly cooks your food. Convection cooking relies on hot, dry air and radically reduces food’s natural moisture content. Our patented Infrared cooking system directs airflow away from the cooking surface, locking the food’s natural moisture, producing moister, more juicy results.

Flare-ups Have Been Eliminated

The unique, patented design of SABER® grill’s cooking grate and IR emitter prevents flare-ups that char meat and create dramatic temperature fluctuations. Instead, our exclusive system vaporizes any drippings and adds natural smoke flavor to grilled foods. Since liquids and debris are prevented from reaching the burner system, maintenance and clean-up are much easier.

Gas Grill Buying Guide – Boston, Sudbury, MA

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, April 26, 2017

West Sport in Sudbury, Sudbury, Boston, MAYou've looked at all types, sizes and price ranges of gas grills. You've listened to salespeople tell you about surface areas, BTUs, rotisserie burners, side burners, infrared burners, and a dozen things you've never heard of. Now you're more confused than before. Here is a little friendly advice in your grill shopping.


Rule number one: You get what you pay for! If you drop in your local department or hardware store (even grocery store) you will see gas grills in the price range of around $150 to $300.

However, there are some that can run over $10,000. There are literally hundreds of gas grills on the market each year through your local stores may only carry a few, so having an idea of how much you want to spend will help narrow your search. When comparing prices, find out whether or not a propane tank is included. This can add about $20 to $30 to your total cost if you have to buy it separately.


The second thing to take into consideration is the fuel. Do you want propane or natural gas? Natural gas requires a gas line at the location of your grill. Many grills can be bought in either configuration but you can't run a propane grill on natural gas or visa-versa. Many lower priced grills do not have the natural gas option although more and more grills do these days. Watch the price, though. Some natural gas conversion kits can cost between $50USD and $100USD.

Of course, natural gas will cost you less in the long run and save you trips to the propane store.


Next is the material the grill is made out of. The main body of the grill is usually made from cast aluminum, sheet metal, cast iron, or stainless steel. Stainless steel is the preferred material of professional cooking equipment and the most expensive, but not all stainless steel is created equally.

One thing to watch for is not just the body, but also the frame. There are many "stainless steel" grills that have painted steel frames that can rust. Once you decide on the material, look over the whole grill to see how it's put together. Is it all stainless steel (try using a magnet)? Manufacturers take shortcuts with metal! The truth is that cast aluminum will typically outlast any quality of stainless steel.


Once you have these factors decided, you need to pick the size and features you want. For the size, think about the kinds of things you will want to cook on your grill and for how many people you might want to cook for. If you're planning on a large turkey or being able to cook up 40 hamburgers at a time you'll want a larger grill. If you just cook a few steaks or chicken breasts once in a while, you'll probably want a smaller one. Also, look at the space you have for the grill. Get one that will fit safely and conveniently.


Do you want a side burner? How about multiple level cooking surfaces, or a smoker box, side burner, rotisserie burner, lights, or any one of a dozen things that get added to a grill these days. Remember that a basic grill will do lots of stuff and most of the extras get very little use.

Features cost Money! Only buy the features you know you'll use.


Another factor is the BTU rating. This is a measurement of the amount of heat created by the burner. A grill with higher BTUs doesn't necessarily produce more heat. It is a factor of the heat created, the size of the grill and how well it holds and distributes that heat. Don't buy a grill just because it has a high BTU number. Compare that number with the size and the shape of the grill. Smaller more compact grills can produce higher cooking temperatures with lower BTUs.


Materials, the thickness of metals, and quality of parts play a major role in how long a grill will last. However, the biggest part of the lifespan of your gas grill is how well it is taken care of. A well taken care of grill can last a long time! The best grill out there will rust and fall apart if it is left uncovered and uncleaned.

Of course, a better grill will last longer, but you can get a long time out of a cheap grill is you take care of it.

One way to separate the bad from the good is to look for name brand grills versus store brands. Name brand gas grills have replacement parts, customer support and a company that will survive or not based on the quality of their products. Store brands change factories annually and lack the depth of support that will help keep you grill working for years to come, because if you take good care of it, it should last for many, many years.

Primo Ceramic Charcoal Grills are the Only Way to Grill on Charcoal - Boston, Sudbury, MA

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, April 20, 2017

Primo ceramic grills are the only ceramic grills that are made in the USA. Cooking good food is done best on a Primo charcoal grill and smoker. With ceramic grills, the heat and moisture are retained inside the grill. No matter how hot the temperature inside, the exterior of the grill gets only warm to the touch. Metal retains heat and lets it escape. Ceramic keeps the heat inside, along with the moisture in your meat.

No matter what you want to cook, from grilling to smoking to baking, this charcoal keg style grill is the way to do it. This grill is an oval keg-style grill, and oval is better than round every time!
