What Can You Cook on a Big Green Egg?

At The Cozy Flame, it is our privilege to offer the best products and brands for our customers and neighbors in and around Milford, Connecticut. At this time of year we love to match families with grills and accessories that bring backyard family time to life. The Big Green Egg is one of our most popular new products and it comes in a variety of sizes for all of your family’s needs. Don’t believe us? It’s as versatile as a slow cooker!

Brunch

The Big Green Egg has impressive capabilities, including baking. When you bake zucchini bread on the Egg, you will find it to be fluffier and bold in flavor. Simply set the Egg to indirect cooking and prepare your ingredients. Follow this link or follow your favorite recipe!

Dinner

It can be easy to fall into a habit of cooking the easy thing, but this is no way to enjoy The Big Green Egg. In fact, we think the open-faced spaghetti pot pie is better than any pizza we’ve made on the Egg. This recipe doesn’t only call for ingredients, but also specific EGGcessories to make the cooking process as easy as possible. When following the recipe, note that the open-faced spaghetti pot pie takes 20-25 minutes, so plan accordingly.

Dessert

Forget messy smores around a bonfire. The whole family can have a blast making their own homemade ice cream sandwiches with The Big Green Egg!

Appetizers

There’s nothing quite like a little spice to kick off the summer. The Big Green Egg is especially handy when cooking spicy foods that may leave your kitchen stinking like peppers for hours or days after. Check out this recipe from Wickles Pickles that you will simply relish! All you need is: 12 jalapenos, shredded white cheddar cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, mayonnaise, cream cheese, relish, garlic powder, and black pepper. Using indirect cooking, prepare the peppers according to the recipe, place directly on cooking grid, and they’ll be ready to enjoy in 7-10 minutes.

You don’t have to stick to boring hotdogs and drumsticks when you invest in The Big Green Egg. These are just a few fun recipes available, and there’s more where that came from. While you’re there, check out the EGGcessories, success stories, and support available to our Big Green Egg customers.

If you’re still on the fence about your new grill, don’t be! Our professionals at our showroom will help you through your decision. Start now, and you can be cooking up something wonderful in no time!

Blazing Beats Firepit

After a long winter, warm weather is finally here! Memorial Day weekend kicks off summer festivities, and we have just what you need to make your pool party, barbecue, or outdoor birthday party pop!

Sound Driven Fire Burner Technology

The first generation of sound responsive fire products is made possible using the Blazing Beats Sound Visualization Fire Burner combined with their Fire Synchronization Chamber. Now, your fire responds to your music, creating the perfect outdoor gathering where your music comes to life. The two focal points of a party are the music and the fire. Blazing Beats has combined the two to create an outdoor product unrivaled by others.

How it Works

We know your technology is important to you, and there’s nothing more damaging than the great outdoors when it comes to audio equipment. The premium outdoor audio utilizes marine-grade, weather resistant, audio components available as a Self Contained (SAS) or Component (CAS) audio system. It integrates with new or existing outdoor audio systems and also allows flexibility for use and protection from weather. There is no wired/plugged in version, only the battery-powered audio unit. The Fire Synchronization Chamber guides propane or gas through the inner chamber, along with the sound waves of your music. It’s guided to the Sound Visualization Burner, which is made of 14-gauge 304 stainless steel. This burner is perforated with microscopic holes to combine your music and fuel into the ultimate sound experience.

The Firepit for You


Just like other gas-fired firepit options, you have some flexibility when choosing your Blazing Beats Firepit design and size. Our dealers can work with you on a construction model with a custom surround, or you can choose the all-in-one model that is ready to use. It’s important to work closely with a professional when choosing your Blazing Beats Firepit and designing your outdoor space. You want to maximize your new purchase while your family and friends stay safe while enjoying it.

Available Models

The all-in-one model is 34” x 34” and 24” high. The final width of the countertop is 38” and there are two options for burner size. The 19” x 19” burner which is available only as a natural gas burner, and the 24” x 24”. The Blazing Beats Burner only comes as a square in this first generation model and works with two 5-gallon propane tanks. However, the 19” burner only burns natural gas.

Blazing Beats is always working toward more models and may even make burners available in more shapes in the future. Currently, they offer a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty, however, making modifications to the electrical components will void the warranty. Be sure to follow the provided user guide when you buy your new Blazing Beats Firepit.

Blazing Beats is manufactured in the United States with American-made materials, excluding electronics. We’re proud to offer American-made products as often as we can at The Cozy Flame.

Start Enjoying Your Patio With a Firetable

There’s never a better time to enjoy your patio than the spring. The cool nights can be enjoyed with some comfy furniture and good company. The only thing to make it better would be a nearby fire!

Introducing the Regency Firetable

It’s not just a coffee table. It’s a fire pit, and is perfect for your outdoor lounging and entertaining. If you purchase and install it now, you can enjoy it’s beauty and versatility for spring and summer! The firetable burns propane or natural gas and is easily installed in any space outdoors. They come in a variety of sizes, colors, designs, and feature a stainless steel burner that won’t become damaged by your weather. Firetables are match-lit, but have a knob flame adjuster that makes it convenient to use and control.

The versatile firetable is perfect for entertaining. This is because you can place the dining leaf over the burner for dinner, then remove it for dessert or drinks by the fire. These firetables feature a beautiful yellow flame that can be large if you need a little extra heat, and can be small if you’re only looking for the ambiance.

Firetable Safety

Firetables are rated for use outdoors and are easy to use safely. The only thing to keep in mind when you make your purchase? You need to follow instructions exactly as stated. Use only the type of fuel indicated by the manufacturer, and never attempt to repair your firetable yourself. Doing so will nullify any manufacturer warranty.

Safety Tips for Your Firetable:

  1. Always keep flammable materials out of the fire. These tables are designed to place glasses and small items on the outside of the flames. However, leaning something large against the table (like a pool cue for instance) can fall into the flame and catch fire. Other items to keep away from the flame would be loose clothing or hair.
  2. Use the proper barriers while the flame is lit. These firetables have a glass barrier to contain the flame. The burners should never be lit when the glass is not in place.
  3. Practice fire safety even with a small flame, and even when it’s properly contained. A fire can still cause serious burns! Children should never be left alone with an open flame and should never climb on a firetable.

Your Dream Patio Space

You can have your dream patio even if you don’t have room for both a beautiful and functional coffee table, furniture, AND a fireplace. Save space and still have your dream patio by choosing a firetable! The Cozy Flame sells many options for outdoor gas fireplaces, including the Regency Firetable.

Schedule a consultation with a fireplace expert today and get started on your patio now, just in time for warm weather!

Entertain In Style With A Fire Table

If you’re interested in adding an outdoor heat source to your home – but aren’t ready to commit to the major construction or permanence of an outdoor fireplace or fire pit – a fire table may be right for you. Fire tables offer the beauty and warmth or a fire pit with the added benefits of portability, easy ignition, and minimal mess.

What is the difference between a fire pit and a fire table?

The difference between a fire pit and a fire table is more than just semantics; these two outdoor heating appliances are very different and each have their own advantages and disadvantages.

– Fire pit: Fire pits come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and styles; the two most common types of fire pits are portable metal drums and permanent in-ground stone fire pits.

The majority of fire pits are wood burning. While this creates warm and aromatic fires – as well as the opportunity for roasting marshmallows – it can also leave you with soot and ash to clean and remove after every fire. Metal fire pits can be prone to rusting due to exposure to the elements. Likewise, larger stone fire pits cannot be moved or adjusted once built, limiting the areas in your outdoor living space where you can entertain.

– Fire table: Fire tables are portable outdoor heating appliances made of stone and metal such as stainless steel or bronze. Available in a variety of shapes and sizes, fire tables can fit into any kind of outdoor living space.

Because they burn propane instead of wood, fire tables provide efficient heat with a minimum amount of smoke. This allows the whole family – including those with allergies or respiratory issues – to enjoy sitting around the fire, even on windy days. Likewise, their size and weight allow them to be moved around the yard for maximum flexibility when entertaining.

Fire table features

At The Cozy Flame, we are proud to carry Regency fire tables. These high quality heating appliances provide a balance of style, functionality, and durability and will last you and your family for years to come. Some of the features of the Regency fire tables include:

– Versatile designs for a variety of outdoor living spaces
– Choice between vibrant crystals, volcanic stones, or driftwood ceramic logs
– Long, full, lazy flames that mimic the look of a wood burning fire
– Optional tempered glass wind shield for a strong flame picture
– Electronic ignition and safety valve
– Seasonal weather resistant cover
– Dining leaf to add functionality to the table when fire is not in use

Add warmth and elegance to your outdoor living spaces by purchasing a fire table. These versatile heating appliances will help you entertain in style for years to come. Contact The Cozy Flame today for more information on what a fire table can add to your outdoor living space.
