During summer, it is typical for families to gather in their own backyards and cook outdoors. Charcoal grill cooking is a great way to grill and prepare luscious food while your family and guests relax for an evening outdoors. The delicious aroma and taste of grilled food can make everyone drool. Not only does grilling enhance the flavor of the food, but it is also a healthier way to cook.

If you love to grill or smoke during summer and even year-round, The Big Green Egg Grills are a charcoal grill worth considering. These ceramic cookers originated from an ancient cooking device called Kamado.

Its design is able to maintain low temperatures for long, slow cooking as well as produce roaring heat perfect for searing steaks.

Pellet Grills For Easy Grilling and Delicious Food

Entertaining in the summer is so much easier. It is a more casual atmosphere; shorts, flip flops, and grilling in the back yard. For a long time now, back yard grilling has been a great way to enjoy a social get together and great tasting food cooked over an open fire. But are gas gills the best way to grill food? Most certainly they are the most well known, but they may not be the tastiest or the healthiest. There are schools of thought who believe the pellet grill is the way to go.

One difference pellet grills have over traditional grills is their design which creates indirect heat cooking. The heat does not come from the top or the bottom of the grill, the food is cooked from the heat moving around the food. This also makes the food tastier to some, because there is more of a smoke flavor which is what pellet grills are really known for.

Pellet grills have much less cancer-causing carcinogens and companies like Green Mountain produce their pellet grills with two or more shields that come in between your food and the heat source. This means that fat from meat which causes carcinogens runs out of the chamber into a bucket that is on the outside of the grill. This way the grease never has a chance to drip down into the heat source which is the fire. Pellet grills are also very green since they produce much less greenhouse gas emissions than conventional charcoal or gas grills. When cooking over them you have much less of the mess to clean up after when compared to a charcoal grill.

If you're looking to buy a grill and start having some backyard get-togethers consider a healthier alternative: a pellet grill. Best of all, right now at Fireplace Showcase, all of our Green Mountain pellet grills are on sale. Contact us for more information

MA Campaign to Replace Older Wood Stoves Kicks Off at Fireplace Showcase

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, March 28, 2018
The Fireplace Showcase - Wood burning stoves in Providence, RI

Wood burning stoves are a way for home and business owners to assert their energy independence by using wood pellets or logs as an alternative heating fuel.

But many of those stoves were early models designed in the 1970s and ‘80s and lack the energy efficiency and cleaner burning capabilities of later models.

The administration of Gov. Charlie Baker and Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito recently announced $450,000 in funding for the 2018 Woodstove Change-out Program that provides rebates to homeowners who replace older stoves with cleaner, EPA-certified models.

The announcement was made by state energy and environmental officials during a tour of the Fireplace Showcase in Seekonk owned by local businessman Randy Titsworth.

“The Woodstove Change-Out Program gives all Massachusetts homeowners access to affordable, highly- efficient, and clean heating systems,” Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Matthew Beaton said.

Launched in 2012, the Commonwealth Woodstove Change-Out Program is administered by the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center.

The program has so far helped replace 2,000 less-efficient stoves, according to MassCEC CEO Steve Pike.

“Through these rebates, Massachusetts residents will have access to clean heating systems that are EPA-certified, use less fuel, and provide cleaner air for our communities,” Pike said. “The Woodstove Change-Out Program has helped thousands of residents across the Commonwealth adopt clean, efficient heating technologies and we’re pleased to offer this program for another year.”

Standard rebates under the program range from $1,000 to $1,750, depending on the emission levels and type of stove purchased. Residents who meet certain income guidelines can qualify for rebates up to an additional $1,500.

States Sen. Paul Feeney, D-Foxboro, and state Rep. Steve Howitt, R-Rehoboth, were among officials present for Friday’s announcement.

Additional information about the program can be found at masscec.com.

Announcing $450,000 Commonwealth Woodstove Change-out Program

Joseph Coupal - Friday, March 23, 2018


Stephanie Cooper, Deputy Director Dept. Environmental Protection, Dan Burgess, Deputy Commissioner Mass. Dept of Energy Resources, Fireplace Showcase owner Randy Titsworth, Steve Pike, CEO Mass Clean Energy Center, Seekonk State Rep. Steven Howitt, and state Sen. Paul Feeney announcing the 2018 Commonwealth Woodstove Change-out Program at The Fireplace Showcase in Seekonk, MA. This $450,000 program aims to replace non-EPA certified wood stoves with qualifying wood or pellet stoves that use less fuel and reduce energy costs. Rebates up to $3250 are available by applying though a participating stove professional before August 28, 2018.

SEEKONK – MARCH 23, 2018 – The Baker-Polito Administration today announced $450,000 in funding for the 2018 Commonwealth Woodstove Change-out Program, which provides rebates to homeowners who replace older, inefficient woodstoves with cleaner, EPA-certified wood and pellet stove models that use less fuel and reduce energy costs. The announcement was made by state energy and environment officials during a tour of the Fireplace Showcase in Seekonk.

Launched in 2012, the Commonwealth Woodstove Change-Out Program is administered by the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC), with assistance from the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) and the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER).

The program has helped more than 2,000 residents swap out dirty, inefficient stoves for newer, cleaner models, with nearly 600 of these rebates going to low- and moderate-income residents. In an increased effort to promote air quality, all newly installed stoves will meet a more stringent emissions standard to help ensure that stoves installed under the program reflect best-in-class technologies.

EPA-certified stoves on average require one-third less wood than older models to produce the same amount of heat, while releasing 70 to 90 percent less particulate matter, which has been shown to exacerbate health conditions like asthma, heart disease and lung cancer. Residents installing new stoves can expect to save an average of $5,000 over the lifetime of the stove. Each woodstove switched out for a newer model is equivalent to eliminating the particulate emissions from five old diesel trucks.

While the majority of program participants purchase new woodstoves, over 30 percent opted for pellet stoves in 2017. In addition to burning very cleanly, these modern appliances automatically feed fuel into the fire, and many have built-in thermostats that allow owners to adjust the room temperature just as they can with central heating systems.

Standard rebates range from $1,000 to $1,750, depending on the emission levels and type of stove purchased. Continuing the state’s effort to make clean energy accessible to more Massachusetts residents, the program offers residents who meet certain income requirements rebates up to an additional $1,500.

In 2017, MassCEC introduced an efficiency adder for newly installed stoves that achieve high efficiency ratings. This efficiency incentive was extremely effective in promoting best-in-class technologies; almost half of all new stove installations in 2017 achieved a high efficiency rating, compared to only 22% achieving this efficiency in 2016.

To qualify for a rebate, a resident must have an operational, non-EPA-certified woodstove. To apply, the resident should visit a participating woodstove retailer or contact a participating stove professional such as a chimney sweep, who will handle the rebate application process on the residents’ behalf. Residents can find a local participating woodstove professional by viewing the list of woodstove dealers who have registered to participate. At the end of 2017, the American Lung Association began offering vouchers for woodstove changeouts in selected counties in western Massachusetts (Berkshire, Franklin, Hampden, and Hampshire). Change-outs funded through this voucher program are not eligible to receive the MassCEC rebate.

Rebate applications will be accepted until August 28, 2018.
