The Battle of American BBQ Styles

Beefer perfect steak 1500 degrees

The Battle of American BBQ Styles – Summer is rapidly approaching, and everyone is getting ready to show off their barbeque skills. All across America, from national barbeque competitions and festivals to the local neighborhood backyard bashes the one question remains – which of the four traditional BBQ styles do you use? American BBQ is a serious matter, so let the battles begin!

Memphis Style

When you’re in Tennessee, you’re not just in the heart of America, you’re in God’s country and it’s all about the ribs! Pork ribs are the crowned jewel of the south and they are smoked slower than you can empty a jar of molasses on a hot July afternoon. Memphis Style BBQ can come two ways: dry rubs or wet sauces. Traditional dry rub BBQ combines all the sweetest flavors of brown sugar, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, black pepper, sea salt and rosemary. Traditional wet sauces have more of a savory and tangy palette with ketchup, white vinegar, brown sugar, yellow mustard, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, black pepper, cayenne pepper and sea salt. Both pack a punch in flavor for a finger-licking good time and are pulled to perfection for that melt-in-your-mouth sensation. 

Texas Style

There’s good reason why they always say, “everything’s bigger in Texas”. With a state spanning over 200,000 miles, barbequing ain’t just a type of food; ya’ll, it’s a religion. Naturally with a state being so vast, different variations of BBQ style develop but it all comes down to brisket -the foundation of all Texas barbeque. Known for its smokey flavors of oak, mesquite, hickory, and pecan, Texas brisket usually ends up looking like a giant lump of coal if you cook it right but once the crisp cavity is cut open, the meat is so tender, so juicy, so delectable, sure ‘nuff you’ll be fixin’ for a second plate before you know it. 

Kansas City

When it comes to Kansas City BBQ, it comes down to two words: burnt ends. Whether you’re grilling up some beef, pork, or poultry, burnt ends are the hallmark of a good Kansas City style BBQ. It’s all about encompassing the fatty flavorful pieces of thickly cut meat and burnt to perfection for that unmistakable trademark taste. The meat is then traditionally poured into rich Kansas City style baked beans and cooked again until the texture is so soft, and all the flavors blend together. A taste explosion in every bite for sure, however, no meal is complete without Kansas City BBQ sauce. A traditional ketchup-base with sticky finger molasses, the secret to this sauce is the brown sugar and a lot of it! There is no such thing as too sweet when it comes to Kansas City. 

The Carolinas 

Known as one of America’s oldest methods of cooking meat, The Carolinas have mastered the art of barbequing. Pitmasters over the years have perfected this style of barbeque with pork and focus primarily on the stomach, neck, and shoulders of the hog. Treating each section with tenderness and care softening up the firm portions and keeping a close eye on the delicate ones cautious not to char the flavor off. On top of having arguably the original form of barbeque style, The Carolinas are best known for the Carolina Gold Sauce. Unlike most traditional barbeque sauces having a ketchup-base, Carolina Gold has a mustard-base giving it that tangy, zesty flavor brought over by early German settlers. Sometimes referred to as “Mop Sauce”, that is exactly how you enhance the flavors of the meat; by mopping it on while the meat cooks and then again when it’s ready to eat.

Although the debate remains which American BBQ Style is the best, the original, or the go-to for summertime cookouts, there is one thing every grilling master can agree on and that’s all these styles not only can be achieved with The Beefer, but can be perfected with The Beefer.

Blog Post by Sarah Bonacci | April 29, 2022

We are going to prove to you that grilling with The Beefer is not just for the boys and goes beyond your typical steak dinner and barbeque feasts. Grilling can beautiful, feminine, and aesthetically gorgeous too. We came up with a simply sophisticated menu for mom on her special day to help celebrate her without the mess! Creating these elegant dishes with The Beefer, she’ll be enjoying her Mother’s Day brunch in no time. 

Spicing Things Up: The Grilled Cocktail

Show mom how sweet she is by serving her a refreshing cocktail. Impress her with your master grilling skills with a twist. And we have just the thing: Grilled Vodka Lemonade. Cool and invigorating and now with a hint of smokiness. Grab six fresh lemons and begin by slicing them in half. Sprinkle some raw sugar on them and place face down in The Beefer. It doesn’t take long for the juicy citrus fruit to become nicely charred by the intensity of the heat allowing the natural sugars caramelize in a way only The Beefer can deliver. Squeeze and strain the grilled lemons into a pitcher allowing the juice to accumulate. Next, add 2 cups of simple syrup and 2 cups of ice-cold water. And lastly, take mom’s favorite vodka and add 1 ½ cups to the grilled concoction. Stir and serve! Add some ice for extra crispness and a thinly sliced grilled lemon wedge to garnish and finish it off.  

The Main Event: Grilled Brunch

The Beefer can do some absolutely incredible things with meat but let’s not neglect fish! The days are getting warmer, and a Mediterranean inspired meal is just the thing for mom. Treat her with some smokey seared salmon on an exquisitely grilled bagel. A meal that will have her wondering how you created such a work of art in a matter of minutes! Start off by seasoning the salmon with her favorite herbs or toppings – we recommend some dark brown sugar, coarse sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper. Add 1 cup of Scotch whisky to keep it moistened inside creating golden brown crisp edges while it grills almost instantaneously in The Beefer. Slice the bagels in half place inside or on top of The Beefer until the perfect level of crunchiness is achieved. Grab mom’s favorite cream cheese spread, slather the bagels and top them with nicely sliced pieces of salmon. She’ll be amazed at how many sweet, savory, and smokey flavors will be dancing around in her mouth with every bite. 

Calories Don’t Count for Moms: Grilled Dessert

Make Mother’s Day memorable by ending the day with a little panache. Tantalize her tastebuds with honey glazed grilled peaches and a side of Madagascar vanilla bean ice cream. This classy dessert will look elegant, chic, and tedious to make but couldn’t be made more simply with the help from The Beefer! Slice a few peaches in half and remove the pits. Delicately brush the peaches with honey and place in The Beefer cut side down. Within seconds, yes just seconds, your peaches will be perfectly grilled by the intense 1500 degrees of heat only The Beefer can provide. The sweetness of the honey mixed on top of the velvety smoothness of the peaches will create a caramelized glaze and add the smallest crunch to every bite. Add a scoop of Madagascar vanilla bean ice cream on top and serve. We guarantee this dessert will vanish before you even have a chance to put the dish down. 

The Beefer will instantly become mom’s favorite grilling machine after this Mother’s Day meal extravaganza! Between its versatility, convenience, simplicity, and functional modern design, The Beefer easily proves that grilling is not just for the boys and is not just limited to steak dinners. It has the unique ability that no other conventional oven or grill has to turn breathtaking flavors into taste explosions even in cocktails and desserts.

How To Grill The Perfect Steak

How To Grill The Perfect Steak

Blog Post 1 by Sarah Bonacci | April 15, 2022

Summer is right around the corner and every proud American knows the unofficial kick-off to grilling season is upon us! That means weekends packed full of friends and family gathering together outside on the back deck over some good barbeque. Now is the time to start preparing your cookout recipes for all your summer fun. But ever wonder how your favorite restaurant cooks a perfect steak each time? We’re talking that dark, crisp, flavorful sizzle on the outside and that juicy, cooked-to-perfection savory pink on the inside…well what if we told you achieving this yourself is as simple as a single click of your mouse. We promise, it’s that easy! This is your fool-proof guide on how you can achieve the perfect steak every time in the comfort of your own home.

Step 1: Buy a Beefer 

…we don’t really need to elaborate, but we will anyway.

Step 2: Know Your (Grill) Options 

Every meat-eating connoisseur and foodie alike understand that depending on the cut and grade of the steak, each one has its own personality full of texture and flavor to delight any palette. Sirloins are considered to be an expensive, prime steak full of flavor served best medium-rare whereas a flank steak is a cheaper cut but great for barbequing. It is equally as important to understand that there are different cooking options as well but only one that you should be using.

Conventional ovens are designed to cook the meat for a longer period of time at a temperature merely reaching 750 degrees Fahrenheit. This method tends to produce an even cooking style throughout the steak but often times overcooks the meat internally. It is difficult to get that crispy crust while keeping the middle juicy and rare.

Charcoal grills are another option, a go-to method of cooking, especially during those summer months. Similar to conventional ovens, charcoal grills can heat up to roughly 600-700 degrees Fahrenheit but can easily char the outside of a steak which sometimes ends up burning and scorching off all the flavors. A lot of steaks become well done when cooked this way and are often slathered with dipping sauces in order to mask the blandness. 

The Beefer, unlike anything else available, beats the competition out of the water by caramelizing the peppery crust of the steak and maximizing its flavors for an unmistakable taste while trapping in all the delectable juices for that perfect mouth-watering bite each time. It would seem like it would take hours of preparation and meticulous attention to details to achieve this kind of quality when actually it happens all within just seconds of entering the blazing 1500 degrees Fahrenheit of heat. Due to its High-Performance Ceramic Burner, The Beefer is able to accomplish perfect results every single time by evenly distributing the temperature and its ability to turn food into delicacies. 

Step 3: Quality in Versatility 

Unlike the traditional oven/grill, The Beefer adds an extra layer of versatility having the unique ability to cook your entire meal at the same time so that you can serve everything hot all at once. Not to mention having only to clean one machine rather than a half-dozen pots and pans. While your steak is cooking to perfection inside the beautifully German-engineered machine, you can sauté your veggies on the top of it killing two birds with one stone. It is seriously the only flavor enhancer you’ll ever need in your home. You’ll wonder how you lived your life up to this point without it. It’s conveniently lightweight so you can transport it from your kitchen to your back deck in no time and is simply effortless to clean. That’s right, we said kitchen and back deck, making The Beefer both an indoor and outdoor portable grill no matter the season. The Beefer also comes in three sizes catering to the type of cooking enthusiast that you are. They’ve got the perfect machine for the grilling aficionado daring to take their skills to the next level and beyond, a big-boy machine for those extended family cookouts, and an even larger than life machine while still being conveniently compact for chefs and professionals set in a more commercial atmosphere. 

The Beefer has it all and delivers beyond expectations every single time! If you’re still having trouble making that decision, this insightful writer is here to help. Go back and read Step #1; you’ll find your answer there. For a perfect steak every time, The Beefer is the only solution for unparalleled results and unmatched flavor.

The Beefer – Engineered and handcrafted in Germany

It all began in a legendary restaurant in Brooklyn: the Peter Luger Steakhouse. This is where Frank Hecker didn’t just eat any old steak, it was THE steak. A mundane meal it was not; it was an epiphany. Frank Hecker, being quite a smart chap, thought to himself that this experience could not be allowed to be a one-time deal. No way. He wanted to enjoy this divine moment as often as possible during his earthly existence. So, he resolved to find out the secret behind THE steak.

Innovation – Made in Germany.

The Beefer Headquarter is based in the “Seven Hills region” near Bonn, the former capital of Germany. All the housing components as well as the burner are produced in the region. The Beefer is also assembled and inspected exclusively by hand here, in our manufactory in Bad Honnef and in the “Bonn Workshops”. This also forms part of our philosophy of ‘moving from quantity to quality’. The Beefer has changed the BBQ Scene a lot – this is what we intended: The Beefer: A perfect Tool for perfect food. Since 2018 we also are located in Atlanta Georgia to be closer to our american friends…
