Fireplace Inserts Make Room Beautiful and Save Energy

It may be mid-August, but Fall is around the corner. Cooler weather makes us want to light a fire and get cozy and warm. But, if you only have an older open fireplace, then lighting a fire doesn't give you the warmth you want or need. And, your home could be leaking heat.

An open, masonry fireplace with a blazing fire is attractive. But in Massachusetts, we need more than just beauty from a fire. An open fireplace is inefficient. But, by adding a wood-burning fireplace insert or changing it to gas and installing a gas fireplace insert, your existing open fireplace can heat a room or even a couple rooms. Inserts for fireplaces can often heat spaces more efficiently than your furnace, and they're certainly more attractive. Because fireplace inserts are sealed they also prevent drafts from coming down the chimney and entering the home.

An open fireplace is like leaving your door open. Drafts can come in, and heat can go out. They are open all the way to the roof. This is why many homeowners in Massachusetts are moving to wood-burning and gas fireplace inserts.

Most gas inserts are more efficient than a home heating system. Most home heat is 70 to 80 percent efficient, gas inserts are almost 86 percent.

The Fireplace Shop and Grill Center at West Sport in Sudbury can help you determine whether a gas or wood burning fireplace insert is best for your home and your lifestyle. There are advantages to both.

Sweet-Hot Baby Back Ribs Recipe

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, July 03, 2018

The Fireplace Shop and Grill Center at West Sport in Sudbury, MAOur directions for these juicy baby back ribs are for a two-burner gas grill. If you have a three-burner grill, light both sides, and leave the center portion off.


  • 2 tablespoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
  • 3 slabs baby back pork ribs (about 5 1/2 lb.)
  • 2 limes, halved
  • Sweet-Hot 'Cue Sauce

Sweet-Hot 'Cue Sauce Ingredients

  • 2 (10-oz.) bottles sweet chili sauce
  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 1/3 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper flakes

How to Make Ribs

Step 1

Combine first 4 ingredients in a small bowl.

Step 2

Rinse and pat ribs dry. If desired, remove thin membrane from back of ribs by slicing into it with a knife and then pulling it off. (This will make ribs more tender.)

Step 3

Rub ribs with cut sides of limes, squeezing as you rub. Massage ginger mixture into meat, covering all sides. Wrap ribs tightly with plastic wrap, and place in zip-top plastic freezer bags or a 13- x 9-inch baking dish; seal or cover, and chill 8 hours. Let ribs stand at room temperature 30 minutes before grilling. Remove plastic wrap.

Step 4

Light 1 side of grill, heating to medium-high heat (350° to 400°); leave other side unlit. Place rib slabs over unlit side, stacking 1 on top of the other.

Step 5

Grill, covered with grill lid, 40 minutes. Reposition rib slabs, moving bottom slab to the top, and grill 40 minutes. Reposition 1 more time, moving bottom slab to the top; grill 40 minutes.

Step 6

Lower grill temperature to medium heat (300° to 350°); unstack rib slabs, and place side by side over unlit side of grill. Cook ribs 30 more minutes, basting with half of Sweet-Hot 'Cue Sauce. Remove ribs from grill, and let stand 10 minutes. Cut ribs, slicing between bones. Serve ribs with remaining Sweet-Hot 'Cue Sauce.

How to Make Sauce

Step 1

Combine sweet chili sauce and remaining ingredients in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring mixture to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes.

Step 2

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Maggi Taste of Asia Sweet Chili Sauce.
