BBQ Brisket on the Grill

Labor Day is a great time to fire up your Kamado Joe to create the best beef brisket you’ve ever had! If you haven’t tried this technique yet, there’s no better time than now to enjoy the ultimate in tenderness and flavor.

How to get the most from your new hot tub


So. You did it. You finally made the decision to invest in a hot tub. 

We know it wasn’t an easy decision. But we also know you’re going to love it. 

The nightly relaxation, letting go of the stress of the day. The morning invigoration, getting you energized and ready to face whatever the day may bring. After-workout hydro-therapy. Romantic date nights under the stars. Whatever your motivation, you’ll experience years of enjoyment and convenience from the spa right out your back door.

To make the most of your purchase, there are a few additional items you’ll need.


A cover for your new hot tub is a must. A quality cover keeps the heat in, and debris out. A clean hot tub means less work for you, and a well-insulated hot tub means more energy efficiency. Be sure to ask us about covers and cover upgrades for your new spa.

Cover Lifter

Removing a hot tub cover can be a chore, especially for one person. Cover lifters make the job simple. They also help you replace the cover when you’re done using the spa.

Matching Steps

Unless you’ll be installing your spa in a unique way, you’ll want matching steps to help you easily and safely enter and exit your hot tub. Nearly all spa models are available with matching steps for pleasing aesthetics. Some even include built-in storage.


We carry everything you need for clean, bacteria-free water. Keep the proper chemicals on-hand at home, and you’ll spend less time running to the store and more time enjoying all your hot tub has to offer. Different varieties of chemicals are available, so be sure to ask for help to determine which best fits your needs and desires.

These accessories will help you get the absolute most enjoyment from your new hot tub, for years to come.

How to host a top-notch outdoor party

Hosting an outdoor party is one of life’s little pleasures. Honestly – what’s better than gathering together with friends and family for food, fun and relaxation, in the comfort and convenience of your own outdoor paradise?

To make sure your party goes off without a hitch, there are two key elements you don’t want to forget:

Element 1: Furniture

No matter how well you plan, your party is likely to be a dud if your guests don’t have a comfortable place to sit. You can always purchase inexpensive outdoor furniture from the closest big box store, if you only want something that will last a season, maybe two. But for quality furniture that will last for years, come see us. We can help you select the proper furniture for your setting and your budget, while considering your specific needs – lounging, dining, conversation, or maybe all three!

Element 2: Food

A party isn’t a party without food and drinks. But eating and drinking outside can be tricky – bugs, heat and other hazards can wreak havoc with your meal. Try these easy suggestions to help things run smoothly.

And to prepare your food, you’re going to want to “wow” your guests with what you can prepare on your Kamado Joe grill. Of course, a Kamado Joe can turn out traditional grilling favorites like nobody’s business. Moist and tender chicken and burgers, flavorful steaks and pork, even hot dogs for the kids. But the beauty of a Kamado Joe is its flexibility. Use it to make tasty appetizers for your party like Smoked Buffalo Hot Wings or Cheese Bacon Sausage Dip, Chicken Alfredo Pizza, or even desserts like Drunken Pineapple a la Mode.

Kamado Joes are available in a range of sizes. Choose the Classic or Big Joe if you’re looking for a grill you can move, or the Stand Alone if you’d prefer to install the grill in your outdoor kitchen or Kamado Joe grilling table.

This season – or any season – you can put together a top-notch outdoor party. All it takes is a little planning.

Build a backyard retreat you’ll want to use all year long

There are a number of things to love about Connecticut living. From our rich history and culture, proximity to the city and so much more – it’s a great way of life. But one of the best things about living in here is that we get to enjoy all four seasons. And if you plan your outdoor living area just right, you can enjoy all four seasons outdoors in your personal outdoor oasis. Yes, even in New England.

Fireplaces and Firepits

No matter the season, it can get a little chilly at night around here. Even, sometimes, in the middle of summer. Including a fireplace or firepit in your outdoor living plan can help keep everyone comfortable. Plus, there’s just nothing like the ambiance created by cozy fire. Not to mention all the s’mores and weenie roasts …


Choosing the right outdoor furniture is incredibly important. You’ll want to consider the space you have and what you’ll be using the furniture for. Turn your outdoor vision into a reality with dedicated areas for conversation, relaxation, dining and more. For year-round enjoyment, place lounge chairs around the pool, a dining set under the shade structure, and a cozy seating arrangement around the firepit or fireplace.


Some foods just taste better when they’re prepared on a grill. With the Kamado Joe, the options – and flavors – are nearly endless. Use your Kamado Joe all year long to make amazing, traditional grilling favorites like steaks, chicken and burgers. Then tap into this grill’s flexibility to bake pizza or cobbler, turn out breakfast for a crowd, even whip up a batch of Irish stew.

Choose a freestanding Kamado Joe for flexibility, or a Stand Alone model to install in your custom outdoor kitchen. The choice is yours.

With a little planning and the right partner, you can build a backyard retreat you’ve always wanted – one that you can enjoy all year long.
