A New Charcoal Grill and a Great Recipe for Father's Day

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, June 14, 2012

Make this Father’s Day special. Buy your dad or husband a new charcoal grill and all the ingredients for great grilled Father’s Day meal!

Ceramic charcoal grills like the Big Green Egg bring out the grilled flavor in any food. Grilling over hard wood charcoal makes every meal delicious. But best of all, they are so easy to light, use and maintain.

Already have a gas grill? No problem! Having both a gas and charcoal grill allows you to be twice as creative with your grilling.

Happy Father’s Day from The Fireplace Showcase. Come on in and check out our charcoal grill selection and enjoy the recipe.

Jalapeno Ribs


  • 4 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3-1/2 to 4 pounds pork spareribs
Jalapeno BBQ sauce:
  • 2 cans (8 ounces each) tomato sauce
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons beef bouillon granules

In a small bowl, combine the first six ingredients; rub onto both sides of ribs. Place ribs, meat side up, on a rack in a foil-lined roasting pan. Bake in a  grill or oven at 325° for 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 hours or until tender.

Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine sauce ingredients; simmer, uncovered, for 30-40 minutes or until thickened.
Grill ribs, uncovered, over medium heat for 10-15 minutes or until browned, basting with sauce and turning several times. Reheat remaining sauce and serve with ribs.

A Charcoal Grill is the Perfect Father's Day Gift

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, June 07, 2012

The perfect Father’s Day gift is a new grill. The dad in your life has everything, and wants nothing. Don’t give him clothes, give him what he really wants: a charcoal grill.

A charcoal grill, the Big Green Egg, is the perfect gift. He has a gas grill? No problem, owning a charcoal grill adds to your grilling versatility. Also, a ceramic charcoal grill can be used for smoking, roasting, as an oven, for searing and to slow cook. For more versatility, and to add excitement to your patio, add a charcoal grill.

Sear the perfect steaks, pork chops or burgers on the EGG. High temperature “steak house” grilling – even at 750º F is quick and easy! Using the two dampers for accurate control, you can lower the heat to a more moderate temperature for other grilled foods. Fish and seafood turn out moist and tender with a flavor-packed crust unmatched by other grills.

Grilling is your dad’s or husband’s domain. If he likes to grill, he will love to grill over charcoal, and nothing beats the Big Green Egg. Lump Charcoal provides great taste, and these charcoal grills are the best on the market.
