Whether it’s hot dogs and hamburgers, a “low and slow” brisket, or a load of vegetables from the farmers’ market, everything tastes better when it’s cooked on the grill. Here in Texas barbeque is practically an art form, and because every artist wants to work with the best tools, this week’s blog is all about the best in indoor and outdoor grilling—complete with a recipe from professional “barbeque artist”, Chef Garth Blackburn, Executive Chef of Sub-Zero/Wolf.
Sub-Zero and Wolf joined forces, creating what they call “a marriage of ice and fire, cold and hot.” Sub-Zero was founded in 1945 and is a third-generation owned company; 70 year-old Wolf joined Sub-Zero in March 2000. Exceeding industry standards, the best warranties in the business, and an ongoing commitment to manufacturing, design, and customer service have made Sub-Zero/Wolf the leader in their field. Serious home cooks can expect serious results with Sub-Zero/Wolf equipment.
We’re fortunate to enjoy almost year-round outdoor grilling weather in Houston. Wolf’s selection of four outdoor grills are sculpted in double-wall stainless steel and heli-arc welded for seamless strength; Wolf gas grills use both direct and radiant heat. Choose from four sizes of outdoor gas grills—30”, 36”, 42”, and 54”—with the option of adding on the 13” Burner Module, which allows you to prepare side dishes and keep sauces warm. Outdoor gas grill features include: stainless steel grates, hot surface ignition, hood assist systems, halogen interior lighting, LED-lit control knobs, 2-position rotisserie, 3-position warming rack, smoker box, external thermometer, and more. Add-on accessories depend on the model, and include options like grill carts, side burners, and insulating liners.
Indoor grilling is as easy as choosing a grill module in your stovetop. If you are cooking a meal that requires just a little grilling along with the usual stovetop and oven cooking, a grill module eliminates the need to monitor two cooking areas (indoor and outdoor). Indoor grill modules also come in handy when it rains on the day of your big barbeque party; move the festivities inside without missing a beat. Wolf’s 15” Grill Module has an integrated design which allows for use in multiple cooktop units, a stainless steel top construction with classic stainless finish, two 1400-watt individually controlled heating elements, illuminated touch controls, an easy-to-clean, removable porcelain collection pan, and an independent digital timer.
