Thermador: WHAT’S YOUR FRIDGE ORGANIZATION STYLE?

When it comes to organization, how I arrange my refrigerator surprisingly reveals a lot about my personality. I love hosting spontaneous gatherings, so my fridge is often stocked with fresh hor d’oeuvres and my favorite white wines. A glimpse into a host’s fridge can be very telling. What does your refrigerator reveal about your personality? Read about five culinary personalities, and how they organize their fridges below.

The Farmer’s Market Enthusiast:

Your Saturdays and Sundays consist of shuffling from one local farmer’s market to the next. Fresh greens and in-season fruits are always at the top of your grocery list, and the delicate produce bins in your Thermador fridge help keep farmer’s market finds bruise-free and tasting crisp. The luxurious soft-close bins will house your favorite garden vegetables and fruits, while the Thermafresh System provides humidity control to store your produce at the perfect temperature. With a customized configuration of bins and shelves throughout, you’re free to organize your farmer’s market finds however you see fit.

The Preservationist:
Homemade jams, pickled vegetables, and fresh pressed juices—now that’s music to your ears. After bottling up the perfect strawberry-fig jam, you turn to the easy-to-access extra shelving space within your Thermador Freedom® Collection fridge. The all-new railing system redesigned for half-gallon bins can hold anything from jars of salty-sweet pickled plums, to a gallon of homemade orange-grapefruit juice. Your favorite feature is the Free Flow Cold Air System because it adjusts the temperature of the refrigerator doors to keep your new creations placed on interior shelves cool and collected.

The Entertainer:
Dinner parties are your time to shine, and there’s no better way to display your creativity, organization, and culinary expertise. When it comes to the Thermador Freedom® Collection, you tend to lean on the Open Door Assist feature that allows you to simply push or pull open the door when your hands are full of cheese and cracker platters for hungry dinner guests. Plus, the Freedom® Collection’s wine presenter shelf displays your favorite bottles front and center. From Merlot to Sauvignon blanc, the 3-Zone Temperature Control stores a variety of beverage options at individual ideal temperatures.

The Grill Master:
You’ve created the perfect sweet and spicy barbecue sauce to pour over a mouth-watering brisket. It’s hard to believe, but your next BBQ bash won’t be the only thing capturing the attention of your neighbors—the Thermador Freedom® Collection has so many ideal organizational features for the roasting expert. You can effortlessly store large plates of beef patties or long platters of veggie skewers due to the customizable shelving space.

The Baker:
A night spent baking a batch of oatmeal cookies, crème brûlée, or chocolate-mint cake pops sounds like the perfect evening to you. After you’ve completed the perfect batch of scones, you turn to your Thermador refrigerator to keep your prepared sweets moist and ready to be devoured. The Cool Air Flow Technology quietly and evenly distributes cold air throughout all parts of the unit. You love this feature because it is responsible for everything, from keeping the shape of freshly frosted cupcakes, to storing your raw ingredients.

recipe_40033.jpg

Rinse bird thoroughly under cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Brush lightly with vegetable oil and stuff cavities. (Extra stuffing may be warmed separately.) Cooking time is approximately 10 – 20 minutes per lb. (longer in colder weather). Always use a drip pan.

 

Ingredients

 

  • Vegetable Oil
  • Turkey (Cooking time is approximately 10 – 20 minutes per lb.)

 

Directions

 

  1. Rinse bird thoroughly under cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Brush lightly with vegetable oil and stuff cavities. (Extra stuffing may be warmed separately.) Cooking time is approximately 10 – 20 minutes per lb. (longer in colder weather). Always use a drip pan.
  2. Remove retractable warming rack. Remove cooking grids. Place drip pan on top of ceramic briquets, Flav-R-Wave™ or Flav-R-Cast™ (depending on your model). Position so drip pan will be beneath center of turkey. Fill drip pan 1/2″ from top with cranberry or cranapple juice. If you run out, use water.
  3. Replace cooking grids. Preheat grill for 5 minutes, then turn both burners to LOW. Place turkey in roast rack if you have one – makes it easy to carry turkey to and from grill. Place turkey in center of cooking grids. Close lid.
  4. Check every half hour. Never let the drip pan run dry. When adding juice or water to drip pan, try to make sure it’s hot or boiling to keep the temperature up.
  5. Remove turkey when meat thermometer reads 180°F to 185°F. Let stand 15 – 20 minutes before carving. This allows the juices to set and makes carving easier.

Broil King Winter Grilling Tips

Barbecuing isn’t just for the lazy days of summer.  Delicious grilled meals are easy to prepare year-round.  Here are a few tips for winter barbecuing that are important to remember before you get the snow shovel out.

  • Always pre-heat your barbecue.  Pre-heat to 400º f – 450º f at minimum, and adjust the temperature from there.   Remember, if food doesn’t sizzle when you put it on the grill, your barbecue is not hot enough.
  • If you are grilling with charcoal, include more charcoal for increased pre-heating time and extra heat while grilling.
  • Cooking times may change with extreme cold; always use an instant read thermometer to ensure that foods are cooked thoroughly.
  • Grill with the lid down – heat loss on a cold day is significantly greater than a warm summer day – keeping your barbecue at a consistent temperature will be very difficult with the lid open.
  • When grilling on a windy day, try to reduce your exposure to the wind – if grilling at lower temperatures, keep an eye on your barbecue to ensure that it does not blow out.  If you do need to move your barbecue out of the wind, keep minimum clearances in mind to avoid damaging your deck or home.
  • Clear a work area around your barbecue – this won’t impact cooking time, but having enough room to work without filling your boots with snow makes for a much more enjoyable barbecue experience and avoids any untimely slips or falls.
  • Lighting – several lighting options are available – some barbecues have built in lighting, and add-on handle lights are available so you’re not grilling in the dark.  Broil King offers a variety of lighting options for their barbecues.
  • Never use your barbecue indoors, in your garage, or in an enclosed area.  Carbon Monoxide accumulation, accidental fire damage, and smoke damage are all possible – it’s not worth the risk.

Now clear off that barbecue and get grilling!
