The Fireplace Showcase - Green Mountain Grill

Last week we blogged about the Green Egg Grill and it really got a lot of you “fired up”. It is so rewarding for all of us here at Seekonk’s The Fireplace Showcase to demonstrate the wide variety of grills and smokers that we offer. It is fascinating to meet many Green Egger’s out there come back in to complete their outdoor kitchen with a dedicated grill so that they are empowered to smoke and grill simultaneously. One particular product getting a bunch of attention these days is the Egg’s sister series, the Green Mountain Grills.

Take for instance the “Davy Crockett”. The Davy Crockett model is the ultimate portable grill. It comes with a digital WiFi controller (control and monitor through our iOS or Android mobile application), a meat probe, a peaked lid for rib racks, a convenience tray with utensil hooks, and Sense-Mate, a thermal sensor which constantly monitors grill temperature. The grill can run on 12V or 120AC so it's perfect for home or camping, tailgating, hunting, house-boating, music festivals or anywhere you can take it! The Davy Crockett weighs 68 pounds and features fold-able legs so that it can be easily placed in the trunk of any car. Open flame technology grease trays are optional and can be purchased in our parts section.

Want something a little more “beefy”? Consider the “Daniel Boone”. The Daniel Boone Prime model comes with a redesigned digital controller with dual meat probes and a USB port. Our 13.5 in. peaked lid provides enough space for a stand-up chicken to a dozen racks of ribs. Keep all of your grilling tools handy by hanging them on the utensils hooks of the side convenience tray. All of our grills have a venturi-style firebox for that creates a cyclone flame that ensures maximum combustion. They also has Sense-Mate, a thermal sensor which constantly monitors the ambient temperature. When the weather gets cold, the sensor kicks the grill into Turbo mode, so you don't have to wait long for the grill to heat up! Other features include Keep Warm mode and Fan Only mode with automatic shut-off to blow ash out of the firebox after you finish grilling.

We have a virtual smorgasbord of grills for you to view and learn about. Drop in or give us a call anytime.

When it comes to smoking grills, one product continually rises to the top of the serious griller’s wish list….The Green Egg Grill. This is one serious machine for the most serious of barbeque enthusiasts. We’d love to give you both the pros and the cons of this beautifully functional and attractive product, but we can only come up with “pros”. There just does not seem to be a con with this product.

Probably the biggest celebration of the Big Green Egg grill is that it is equally effective as a high-heat and low-heat smoking and grilling machine. There is not another product on the market that delivers the precise temperature control as The Green Egg. We’d love to discuss the laundry list of reasons why, but at the end of the day it is about construction material and functional design. The Green Egg marries these two elements marvelously.

Did you know you can smoke ribs on Saturday and bake bread on Sunday? We throw that out there to make the point that this smoker/grill is more versatile than you can imagine. You owe it to yourself to learn more about it! For more tips on Green egg grill, contact The Fireplace Showcase.
