Super Bowl Tailgating Recipe: BBQ BABY BACK RIBS WITH BACON PINEAPPLE GLAZE

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, January 31, 2018

The Fireplace Shop and Grill Center at West Sport in Sudbury, MA New England is heading to the Super Bowl...AGAIN! That means you need an excellent tailgating recipe, whether you are going to the big game or watching from the comfort (and warmth) of home.

Calling all pork lovers. These ribs are mind-blowingly delicious. Give these baby backs and spicy rubdown, some BBQ treatment, and glaze 'em with a homemade sweet & savory pineapple bacon glaze.

Ingredients:

  • 2 SLABS BABY BACK RIBS
  • SALT
  • BLACK PEPPER
  • YOUR FAVORITE SPICY RUB
  • 6 SLICES BACON
  • 6 OZ PINEAPPLE JUICE
  • 1 TSP GARLIC
  • 2 TBSP HONEY

Remove the membrane from the bone side of the ribs and apply the salt, pepper and rub to that side. Flip the ribs over and season the meat side.

When ready to cook, start the pellet grill on smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 350 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

While the grill heats up, cook the bacon in a frying pan. As the bacon is cooking, pour the pineapple juice, garlic and honey into an oven safe pot.

Remove the bacon from the grease and let the pan and bacon fat cool down. After the pan has cooled for a while, pour the bacon grease in with the pineapple juice, garlic and honey and stir to combine.

Place the ribs and the pot on the grill and close the lid. After an hour, the slurry will have reduced down a bit and can be applied to the ribs. Slather the ribs with the reduction every 15 minutes.

When the bones peek out about a quarter to a third of an inch, the ribs are done which is about 2 hours and 15 minutes.

For fall off the bone ribs, go another 30-45 minutes, continuing to glaze every 15 minutes.

The sweet and savory of the reduction will temper the heat of the spicy rub forming an outstanding and complex blend of flavors. Enjoy!

Durable. Gas fireplace inserts are made using durable steel or cast iron construction with an oven-baked finish. This means they are not easily scratched or damaged.

Gas Fireplace Inserts: Attractive, Efficient, Easy

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, January 10, 2018

The Fireplace Shop and Grill Center at West Sport in Sudbury, MAA gas fireplace insert is an easy, convenient way to heat your home and to make a traditional open fireplace more attractive. They consist of a firebox that is surrounded by steel or cast iron decorative trim with an insulated glass window for viewing. Because the box is sealed, the heat is prevented from going up the chimney as with open fireplace. In fact, with inserts for fireplaces the heat is forced back into your home instead, and most gas inserts have a blower to help move heated air. Fireplace inserts, both wood and gas, are placed directly into your existing open fireplace.

Energy efficiency and ease of use are the two biggest benefits of adding a gas insert to your home. Gas Fireplace Inserts average 75% - 80% efficiency and use less gas than gas fireplace logs. They can also be thermostat controlled for even heating.

Right now, at West Sport in Sudbury, you will get your chimney venting system free with the purchase of any gas or wood fireplace inserts. That’s a savings of up to $800.

Gas Fireplace Inserts For Beauty When Heating Your Home

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, January 04, 2018

The Fireplace Shop and Grill Center at West Sport in Sudbury, MAIf you heat your home with oil or propane, this may be a tough winter, it's cold out! With temperatures well below average, and the "bomb-cyclone" upon us, you most likely have your heat turned up higher than normal. If you have natural gas in your home, you can heat your home more efficiently without replacing your oil furnace and tank.

Adding a gas fireplace insert to your home supplements your home heating and gives you oil heat a break. A new gas fireplace insert cost far less than a new furnace, and it can dramatically decrease your heating bills.

Everyone loves to enjoy sitting in front of a roaring fire. And nothing compares to the efficiency of a gas fireplace. They are also a cleaner burning option than wood and very easy to use. You may have an open wood burning fireplace, so how do you turn it to gas? A plumber runs a gas line to your open hearth, and a gas fireplace insert is easily installed. A gas fireplace insert slides directly in your present fireplace and is connected to the gas line.

Energy savings is the biggest reason that more and more customers are looking at gas fireplace inserts. A gas fireplace insert fits snugly inside your existing fireplace. There are plenty of ready- made fireplace inserts that fit into existing open hearths. After they are installed, the change to the look and feel of your home is dramatic. Gas fireplaces light with the push of a button. There is nothing like coming home and turning on the fire to help you relax and get warm.

Holiday Prime Rib in a Pellet Grill

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, December 20, 2017


Ingredients:

  • 4-10 lb. Beef Rib Roast
  • GMG Beef Rub

Actually, prime rib is a bit of a misnomer, as less than 2% of all American beef is graded prime. Most of that grade goes to expensive restaurants, although some specialty butcher shops carry it as well. Your local grocery stores will carry USDA Choice or Select. If your budget permits, buy USDA Choice because it will be more tender and flavorful.

How to Make it:

Start with a 3-7 bone roast. As a rule of thumb, one bone will feed two people, so if you have a group of 8, you likely need a 4-rib roast. A prime rib roast is simply a standing rib roast – the terms are interchangeable. Don’t buy a boneless roast, as it will have much less flavor.

Wash the roast thoroughly with cold water and dry completely with paper towels. If the fat cap is thicker than ¾”, trim it down to about ½-¾”. Score the fat cap in both directions with a sharp knife just to the meat in a checkerboard pat-tern. Lightly coat the roast with olive oil and then rub with GMG Beef Rub. Buy thousands and thousands of bottles! Stock up for the future! If you don’t have our rub, use something else if you must. Our beef rub contains smoked paprika, cayenne, brown sugar, sea salt, marjoram, cumin, black pepper, and thyme, and some combination of those ingredients will enhance the flavor of your roast. Put the roast in the refrigerator for several hours, or preferably, overnight.

Plan about 5-8 hours cooking time depending on the size of your roast. So working backwards, if you want to eat a 6:00 PM, you should start cooking the roast at around noon, again depending on the size. Take the roast out of the refrigerator about two hours before you plan to cook it. This allows the meat to cook more evenly throughout since the grill will not have to overcome a very cold temperature in the middle of the roast, and it will also cut down on your cooking time since the roast starts out at a higher internal temperature.

Set your grill at 500° (or 430° if you have an older model). When the temperature stabilizes, put the roast in, fat side down, right on the grate. Let it cook for 15 minutes. Then turn it over, fat side up, and cook for another 15 minutes. Turn the temperature down to 190°. Insert a meat thermometer into the middle of the side of the roast so that the end of the probe is approximately in the middle of the roast.

Cook the roast to an internal temperature of 125 (rare), 132 (medium rare), 140 (medium), 148 (medium well), and 160 (well done). Remove the roast from the grill, cover with aluminum foil, and let it rest for about 20-30 minutes. The internal temperature of the meat will rise another 3 degrees during this time. Then carve and enjoy!

Enjoy Fireplace Season: Now there is an Easier Way to Warm Your Home

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, December 13, 2017

The Fireplace Shop and Grill Center at West Sport in Sudbury, Boston, MAWhether entertaining friends or cozying up with a favorite book, there's nothing like a warm glowing fire to add ambience and warmth to the home. Hauling and storing firewood and cleaning up messy ashes, however, can make building a wood-burning fire a hassle. This season easily transform a wood-burning fireplace and experience the beauty and benefits of gas logs while saving money, time and the environment.

Beautiful

Today's gas logs produce a stunning, realistic flame that can rival any wood-burning log. A wide range of wood types is available, from birch to oak, as well as colored glass and gems and accessories to add personal style to any hearth.

Economical

Gas logs are generally inexpensive to buy and install and cost about a quarter per hour of what it costs to burn wood. Some gas logs are more than 99 percent efficient.

Convenient

Gas logs allow for instant enjoyment. With a touch of a button, the fireplace turns on and off. There's no need to purchase, store and season wood and clean up and dispose of messy ashes.

Safe

Gas logs prevent flying sparks, common with wood, that might burn a rug or cause other damage. They don't create indoor particulate matter that is harmful to asthmatics and those with respiratory issues.

Environmentally Friendly

Burning gas logs helps preserve natural resources for generations to come by eliminating harmful particulate matter in the air.

Which Gas Logs
