Wood Burning Stoves and Fireplace Inserts for a Warmer Winter

The temperature is dropping. The easiest way to improve your home heating this winter is with a new wood stove. Wood stoves are easy to install because they can be vented through any outside wall, they don’t need an existing chimney or a high-tech expensive chimney.

Wood burning stoves are cleaner burning, more efficient, and powerful enough to heat an average-sized home. For a renewable source of energy and relief from fluctuating fuel costs, Wood stoves are the better way to stay warmer this winter.

When you are choosing a wood-burning stove, it's important to select one that is the right size for the space you are heating. When an appliance is too big, homeowners burn fires at a lower temperature in order to keep from overheating the space. This wasted fuel and causes air pollution. If the wood stove is too small, homeowners will use too much fuel and won’t be able to heat the space efficiently or adequately.

A good rule-of-thumb is that a stove rated at 60,000 Btu’s can heat a 2,000-square-foot home. Your local fireplace retailer can help you determine the right size wood stove for your space and your lifestyle.

Traditional open fireplaces are nice for ambiance but should not be used to heat your home; they are inefficient and can actually draw the heat out of your home and up your chimney. Wood stoves and fireplace inserts increase the efficiency of your fireplace by allowing you to burn a hotter fire and that heat is forced out into the room. Wood inserts function like wood stoves and use the existing chimney. A properly fitted fireplace insert can function nearly as efficiently as a wood stove.

If you would like to be warmer this winter, contact The Fireplace Shop and Grill Center at West Sport in Sudbury, MA and we can help you choose the right Wood stove or wood stove or insert for your home.

Turkey on the Grill This Thanksgiving

The best turkey is grilled turkey

This is one dish that you should literally always make—even if it means two competing birds on the table—is a barbecue-inspired, spiced, brined, and smoky grilled turkey. It is, as the kids say, legit.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tablespoons hot smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon dried savory
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon mustard powder
  • teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ¼ cup (packed) plus 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • ½ cup kosher salt
  • 1 12–14-pound turkey, halved (backbone removed, breastbone split)
  • Vegetable oil (for grill)
  • Special Equipment
  • A disposable foil pan and 1 cup wood chips soaked in water at least 1 hour (optional); oven thermometer

RECIPE PREPARATION

Mix paprika, savory, cumin, mustard powder, cayenne, and ¼ cup brown sugar in a small bowl. Transfer 3 Tbsp. spice mixture to a medium bowl; mix in salt and remaining 3 Tbsp. brown sugar. Set remaining mixture aside for the next day. Cover turkey with dry brine, packing on until you’ve used it all. Chill on a rimmed baking sheet uncovered 8–12 hours.

Thoroughly rinse turkey to remove brine; pat dry. Rub with reserved spice mixture and let sit 2 hours to bring to room temperature.

Prepare grill for medium-high, indirect heat (for a charcoal grill, bank coals on one side of grill; for a gas grill, leave one or two burners off) and lightly oil grates. If using wood chips: Scatter over coals, if using a charcoal grill; place in a disposable foil pan and set over lit burner, if using a gas grill.

Place turkey, skin side up, over indirect heat, breast halves facing each other, with legs closest to direct heat. Place oven thermometer in center of indirect heat zone; cover. Grill 20 minutes, then rotate halves so neck end is closest to coals. Check temperature inside grill; thermometer should register 325° (open or close vents as needed). Continue to grill turkey, checking for doneness after 20 minutes, then again every 10 minutes, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of breast registers 150°, about 1 hour total.

If desired, carefully move turkey over direct heat and turn skin side down. Grill to lightly char skin, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a platter and let rest at least 30 minutes before carving.

Update The Fireplace, Home is Where the Hearth Is

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, October 31, 2019

What makes a house a home? Its fireplace. What makes that fireplace special? The design, beauty and comfort of the hearth.

But the hearth isn’t just for your living room anymore.

This is the last day of National Fireplace Month, and we want to remind home builders and homeowners that, thanks to the ingenuity of designers and architects, a beautiful hearth can center any room of the house.

The hearth is the home’s heartbeat, the connection point for all who live there. But our lifestyles have changed. Where we congregate and how we spend our time has evolved. Combine those changes with home builders and remodelers’ creativity, and you can now consider a fireplace for nearly any room.

Consider these six spaces:

  1. Bedrooms: Make your bedroom even cozier and consider giving it a cabin-like feel with a gas fireplace or even a stove.
  2. Kitchen: Steep your morning tea and read the news at your breakfast nook warmed by an assuring, alluring flame.
  3. Office/study: Want to fire up your best thinking? A sleek electric fireplace beside your home desk can be your best collaborator.
  4. TV room: Fireplaces are the new flat screens. As more consumers cut the cable cords, hearth manufacturers are boldly reclaiming their rightful place as the TV room’s focal point, offering thin, long, horizontal gas fireplaces for installing in the center of the wall.
  5. Bathrooms: An evening soak in warm suds can be made even more relaxing and intimate with a remote-control fireplace
  6. Your outside wall: Want to make your home even more open? An indoor/outdoor fireplace connecting your favorite indoor room to your backyard patio truly opens up the home.

Warming up to the idea of fireplaces beyond the living room? Contact The Fireplace Shop and Grill Center at West Sport in Sudbury, MA, your specialty retailer.

All Types of Fireplaces

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, October 16, 2019

Contemporary, see-through fireplaces that warm multiple rooms. Prefabricated gas fireplaces that mount directly to the wall. that look realistic and can really put out the heat. No, these are not the fireplaces you knew when growing up in your parent’s home. Today’s innovative new fireplaces are designed for visual excitement, two-sided exposure, and installation in locations previously unconsidered.

The conventional fireplace has all but been reinvented in recent years. There are so many new products on the market today that can fit any budget and style.

While your parents may have had a wood-burning fireplace, the chances are that it wasn’t outfitted with an insert. Fireplace inserts with glass doors have become the standard, retaining the heat generated by the fire when in use, and limiting draft when not. Woodstove design has also been updated in recent years allowing for a wide array of designs ranging from traditional to ultra-contemporary.

Gas and electric fireplaces are now installed for aesthetics and mood as well as heating purposes. Architects have embraced the long, sleek horizontal fireplace surrounds and are incorporating them into their contemporary interior designs. Equally exciting, are two-sided fireplaces that are increasingly being used in home designs. When you consider the visual impact and benefits of a two-sided fireplace, the extra expense associated with it seems relatively low.

Second and third fireplaces are being installed in existing homes–sometimes for the calming effect they evoke. Specifically, the gas and electric fireplaces that can be mounted directly to the wall, which in many cases do not require venting. Because of this, fireplaces are making appearances in kitchens, baths and other private rooms of the house.

Hearth-related innovations are not limited to home interiors. Outdoor fireplace kits using traditional masonry or pre-engineered masonry products range in design from simple to majestic. The gas-fueled fire pit has also been given a new stage with its integration into the design of patio furniture and other outdoor architectural features.

Many new forms of media, such as the simulated gemstones, have been developed for use in gas applications both in and outside the house. Other products include large river-worn stones and sophisticated metal sculptures. vTo experience the true impact of these and other fireplace products, visit the showroom at The Fireplace Shop and Grill Center at West Sport in Sudbury, MA, your local hearth shop.
