If you live in a home thats more than 20 years old, theres a good chance you have a traditional wood-burning fireplace. But what if you want an easy way to upgrade the look and efficiency of the hearth? Modernizing your home’s old wood fireplace is easy with an efficient and beautiful fireplace insert, and the work can typically be done in a day or two. A gas fireplace insert fits directly into your existing fireplace, greatly enhancing its performance and beauty. Operated by the flip of a switch or remote control, gas fireplace inserts burn natural gas or liquid propane, so there’s no ash to clean up. Your old wood fireplace is probably less efficient than you might think. Some masonry-built, open fireplaces like the one on the before and after/left below can exhaust as much as 24,000 cubic feet of warm air to the outside, while drawing cold air in through the doors and windows of the home. A gas insert will turn that around immediately, making your fireplace up to 85% efficient and your home warmer. As our friends at Heat n Glo say (products featured here), gas inserts are the best thing to happen to fireplaces since fire. We couldnt agree more.

Is it July 1?? Countdown to our favorite grilling holiday is ON, and with it, were sharing some top tips for creating the juiciest burgers on the block. Fat makes burgers juicy. That’s why ground chuck (from the shoulder) is better for burgers than ground round (from the rump). Chuck is typically about 18 percent fat, whereas round is often about 12 percent fat. Most ground beef in supermarkets comes from all kinds of parts of the animal. Ask the person behind the counter to grind some chuck just for you, maybe mixing in some sirloin for extra flavor. Seasoning Works Ground beef alone makes a pretty dull-tasting hamburger, so make sure the meat is mixed throughout with at least salt and pepper. Other ingredients, like Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, or grated onions, will improve not only the taste but also the juiciness of your hamburgers. Shaping Up The ideal thickness for a raw patty is 1 inch. If it’s any thinner, it’s likely to overcook and dry out before a nice crust develops on the outside. If it’s much thicker, the crust can turn black before the center reaches a safe internal doneness level of medium. Level them Off Burgers can puff up in the middle as they cook, making the tops rounded and awkward for piling on toppings. A good trick is to press a little indentation into the top of each raw patty with your thumb or the back of a spoon. Then, when the center pushes up, the top of each burger will be relatively level. Flip Just Once You should flip each burger only once, and only when it’s ready to flip. You’ll know its time by slipping the edge of a spatula underneath the edge of the burger and lifting up very gently. If the meat is sticking to the cooking grate, back off and try again a minute later. When you can lift the edge of the burger without sticking, it’s ready to flip. Now.....let the creativity begin!
