Red, White, & Beefer! Your 4th of July Guide to Grilling

Your 4th of July Guide to Grilling

By now you have undoubtedly purchased a Beefer for your home. Congratulations! It is not surprising that the Fourth of July is the most popular grilling day of the year for proud Americans. A day full dedicated to freedom, family, food, festivities, and fireworks! Tradition is something that grill-masters take very seriously and recipes that have been passed down through generations are sacred and heavily cherished. So now we’re going to teach you how to prepare your meat for the ultimate Beefer searing experience this Fourth of July! The Beefer is not only a work of art, it is also a master of science.

The Beefer Science

The Beefer performs exceptionally with a top heat at 1500 degrees Fahrenheit. Because no other grill on the market even comes close to that kind of power, it would seem like burning your food would be a natural concern. But meat is amazing in the way it contains water (meat juices) and fat which prevents it from burning. That is why choosing the type of meat will dictate how you need to properly season it and determine how long to cook it. The different levels of juices and fat will surface as they begin to evaporate inside the Beefer which stops the temperature from rising too quickly allowing the meat to brown nicely.

The Maillard Reaction

As you are now aware, a very scientific process goes into drawing out all the flavors of each particular cut of meat. In basic terms, browned food is good food! The browning of food receives its distinctive look, smell, and taste from a process known as the Maillard Reaction which is when sugars and amino acids are heated and slowly mixed together. This is some of the magic that happens all within 6 minutes or less inside The Beefer. That classic caramelization that gives meat, fish, and vegetables alike a sweet and savory flavor that make your friends and family come back for second and third helpings!

Meat Basics

It is crucial to buy your meat from a butcher you can trust so you know exactly what type of meat you are getting and where that meat is coming from. Remember that quality always comes before quantity. Sure, you can feed an army from Costco, but the quality is where the flavor is hiding and many of these external factors, like knowing how the animal was fed, its daily lifestyle, if it was under stress, etc.…all play a huge role in how the meat will end up tasting. Once you have chosen the cut and are ready to cook it up, there are a few things to remember: always wash and pat-dry any vacuum-packed meat, bring it to room temperature before searing, massage it gently with any seasoning, and let the meat rest after being cooked to perfection in The Beefer.

Properly Seasoning Your Meat

Everyone knows that salt not only adds flavor to their favorite dishes but also draws natural flavors out when cooking and is one of the best pre-seasonings you can use! This especially holds true for leaner cut meats as it allows more juices to be retained as it naturally would not be able to do so on its own. It comes as no surprise that there are dozens among dozens of different varieties of salt on the market to purchase so how do you know which one is the best option? Our personal favorite choice is natural sea salt – chalk-full of amazing health benefits for your body and allows the natural goodness of the meat seep through in every bite. But smoked-wood infused sea salt is a great addition to add to your repertoire for a grilling taste adventure.

How to Prepare Lean Cuts vs Fatty Cuts

Lean vs fatty cuts of meat are always a debate on everyone’s menu. Lean cuts are obviously a little healthier for you, however, the fatty cuts have ALL the flavor. So, let’s talk about how to prepare each cut to optimize your traditional recipes. Lean cuts need a little more attention than fattier cuts because the main tenderizer as you have learnt above is the meat juices found in the muscle fibers and cells and needs to be left there for flavor-bursting taste. Since lean meats are lower in juice and fat levels, in order to achieve this, lean meats need to be turned as much as possible and cooked at a greater distance from the burner. These cuts are more ideal to eat especially for the health-conscious consumer, however, they require more attention to make sure the flavor isn’t lost. This is where pre-seasoning really comes into play here and those salty flavors sprinkled generously will give you a fool-proof steak each time. Cuts with more fat are packed with flavor and don’t necessarily need as much attention while grilling! Cooking a piece of meat with substantial fat on it unlocks all the flavors, aromas, and textures of the meat on a multitude of levels. Some of the fat will turn buttery soft and will add a great taste to the meat, however, some fat will need to be cut off after cooking as its purpose is to add flavor only.

So, no matter what recipes have been handed down through the generations, if you follow these guidelines, you will surely impress everyone that comes over to your backyard BBQ this year! Get ready to celebrate red, white, and Beefer this Fourth of July!

BBQ, Beer, & Beefer – Your Ultimate Guide for The Best Memorial Day Weekend

Beefer Memorial Day

Memorial Day is a day dedicated to celebrating true American pride. A day where we gather together, a day where American flags fly proudly outside our homes and a day when we honor with grateful hearts all of those who gave their lives serving in the U.S. Armed Forces to protect this great country of ours. Memorial Day is also the unofficial kick-off to summer which means one thing: it is the beginning of the great American BBQ Season. Whether you’re in a small town or large city, up north, down south, on the east coast or the west coast, this is the weekend to show off your grilling skills. The Beefer is the only grill that will deliver perfect results for all of your BBQ recipes. It is the perfect tool for perfect food, guaranteed every single time.

The Only Weather-Proof Grill:

We all know that Memorial Day Weekend weather doesn’t always cooperate, especially depending upon where in the states you reside. However, a little disagreement in the weather won’t stop the American people from grilling. But what happens when it starts storming so hard outdoors not even the bravest griller is willing to struggle with excessive amounts of lighter fluid to get their grill to ignite? With The Beefer, weather is no longer a concern. You can easily move the very transportable grill indoors and still achieve that professional, restaurant-grade savory taste without it raining on your parade. No other grill allows you to even entertain that option. Grill on!    

Ramping Up the Flavor:

Every American home has its favorite traditional recipes passed down through the generations, but to make any meal great, the most important thing is finding those flavorful cuts of meat and freshest of veggies that keep those old traditional recipes bold and delectable. Nothing says backyard BBQ like a juicy, classic beef burger, grilled to perfection BBQ chicken breast, smokey baby-back pork ribs slathered in your favorite mopping sauce and some good ole’ corn on the cob. We’ve even got a way to make you look forward to salads –try brushing some whole Romaine hearts with an herb-infused oil and grill them up in your Beefer for a smokey flavor-enhanced salad and toss some fresh tomatoes, cucumbers and a simple vinaigrette dressing that will get everyone asking for seconds! Not only can all your meats and veggies be cooked to perfection with The Beefer, but they will also be ready to serve in no time with its intense 1500 degrees of nearly instant heat. 

Grilling with Beer & The Beefer

No true American cookout is complete without some beer. But did you know beer is not just for drinking – it’s for grilling with too! Believe it or not, beer is so versatile and can be used as a substitute in many of your favorite recipes. Everyone has heard of beer-can chicken, and although we don’t recommend sticking a can of beer inside The Beefer, you can still use it as a liquid seasoning booster in marinades, BBQ sauces, glazes, and rubs. Beer is much less acidic than wine and citrus juices and because of its alcohol content it has the unique ability to tenderize the meat and help to break down some of the tough tissues for a melt-in-your-mouth meal in every bite. 

Grilling with a Beefer will not only allow you to cook the best BBQ food you have ever tasted, but it will also save you so much time with its intense heating capabilities – cooking is fast, and clean-up is even faster. That means more time for the cook to spend with their friends and family. So, get those recipes ready and grab your Beefer to make this year’s Memorial Day Weekend the most memorable yet!

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.

Your Mother’s Day Guide to Grilling the Perfect Meal for Mom

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!

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…
