What is there not to like about this picture….your Harley parked next to 8 racks of ribs, slow cooking, smoking, and filling the parking lot with the aroma of an award winning barbecue pit.

If you aren’t familiar with the Memphis Pellet Grill…here are some highlights:
•This grill offers stainless steel construction, a large cooking temperature cooking range (high-temperature searing to low-and-slow smoking), and it is made in the USA.
•Memphis Elite and Pro models are double-walled constructed, providing the best insulation required for easily maintaining temperature, regardless of what the outside environment is like.
•This grill has one of the largest hopper capacities in the industry, giving you the ability to cook up to an impressive 60 hours.
•Memphis installs 2 internal convection fans that circulate the heat, making it one of the most even cooking convection pellet grills on the market.
•The wood pellets are 100% natural hardwood available in six flavor varieties, they create less ash than charcoal and are an easy to use renewable resource.
•This grill is available as a built-in, as well as a freestanding model, giving homeowners the option to include a pellet grill as a built-in outdoor kitchen appliance.
•Memphis Grills are backed by a 7 year warranty, however, they are one of the best built pellet grills you can buy…you can rely on them lasting for many years.

The ribs and chicken turned out awesome……..

This month, let me introduce you to Kenny Kolaiah.
Kenny has been cooking and selling BBQ for the last 9 years and has gradually started doing small caterings like family reunions, parties, etc.  He was working full time with Orange County Public Schools and after working his business on the side, decided to quit his job and pursue a career change.  During the difficult time of trying to build his business, he hit a few bumps in the road and had to work odd jobs to make ends meet….at this time he discovered and applied for the Second Harvest Culinary Training Program.

4cf4fe54-314c-4c6d-afc8-f9992942c158Upon completing the program, he accepted a position at Isleworth Country Club and worked there for a year while building his catering business. He has been fortunate to be catering full-time for the last 3 years… Kolaiah’s Catering currently offers a variety of cuisines, full/drop off catering services, private chef, and volunteers to provide meals for the hungry every month.

 Customers, and the team at Aggressive were recently treated to an awesome meal prepared by Kenny…a good old fashioned spread of barbeque and amazing sides.1187b48e-16dc-4d60-a30f-1d3ab054164f

It should always be National Grilled Cheese Month

We are not really sure who decides this, but April is National Grilled Cheese Month…we feel the only honorable thing to do is celebrate and embrace it.

In our showroom, our favorite way to make a grilled cheese sandwich is in the GE Monogram Advantium Oven.  We have a live unit in our Monogram kitchen and while this oven has many features and capabilities, you just can’t beat the way this oven makes an awesome grilled cheese.

Before we get to the food pictures, the Advantium Oven is in a class by itself…a brief description of its attributes are as follows:
–  Advantium technology harnesses the power of light.  The outside of the food is cooked like a conventional oven, with radiant heat produced by halogen bulbs above and below the food.  This halogen-produced heat receives a boost of microwave energy.
–  Foods brown and cook evenly and fast, while retaining their natural moisture.
–  Advantium offers 4 ovens in 1…..Speedcook, True European Convection, Sensor Microwave, and Warming/Proofing ovens…..and comes in several different configurations to fit any kitchen design.
–  Delivers oven-quality results 2 – 8 times faster that a conventional oven….no preheating required.

The Advantium Oven is offered across the GE lines of Monogram, Profile and Café…the differences have to do with whether the oven is installed as an over-the-range classification, built-in, or based on specifications regarding which voltage is required.  Here is a link to more info and specs on the GE Advantium Oven.

Now back to making an amazing grilled cheese sandwich…after all, there is a month dedicated to its awesomeness.

The Advantium gives you foolproof digital options to scroll through and find just the right selection to make your sandwich……
