Our Brick Oven Cooking Demo was a great success!

On May 15, Joe Mishler, Executive Chef at Devon Seafood Grill in Hershey, PA put on a cooking demonstration at the Watson Supply warehouse in Harrisburg.  Everything was cooked in a Chicago Brick Oven, which is a wood fired oven that is used outside.  The point of the demonstration was to show that wood fired ovens are extremely versatile cooking tools, and tons of fun to use, too.  Many people think that wood fired ovens are only good for making pizzas.  Wow, did Joe prove THAT wrong!

Our guests got to experience first hand how to prepare and cook Blackened Georges Bank Scallops, Herb Roasted Pork Tenderloin, Fire Roasted Asparagus with Toasted Almonds, and Roasted Fingerling Potatoes with Shallots and Fresh Tarragon.  Since we had some extra time, we also prepared a dutch oven chicken and a couple of pizzas (which are cooked right on the floor of the oven).

Everybody had a great time, and we all learned a lot about cooking, particularly the capabilities of the Chicago Brick Oven.  If you have ever thought about getting one of these (or are thinking about it now!), why not attend one of our upcoming cooking demonstrations?  Click on this link to go to the registration page.  http://outdoorcooking.eventbrite.com

Here is the menu for our next demonstration, which will be held on June 17th:

  • Chipotle Shrimp & Andouille Sausage Kabobs with Avocado Sour Cream
  • Marinated Flank Steak
  • Fire Roasted Peppers with Basil Vinaigrette
  • Roasted Russet Potato with Cilantro Butter

Nothing beats pizza made with your own sauce!

We recently had the privilege of enjoying some pizzas cooked by Joe Mishler on our Chicago Brick Oven using Joe’s own sauce recipe. Joe is the Executive Chef at Devon Seafood Grill in Hershey, PA, so you could say that he knows cooking! The pizzas were some of the best we’ve ever tasted. Joe was nice enough to share his sauce recipe with us so that we could share it with you. Use this recipe as it is, or feel free to adjust amounts or ingredients to make it your own. Keep in mind, the fresher the ingredients, the better the sauce will taste. Also, cooking outside on a wood-fired oven adds smoky flavor and makes the whole experience even better. Enjoy! Pizza Sauce

15 oz can of tomato sauce 1 tbsp dry basil 1 tsp dry oregano 1 tsp onion powder 1 tsp garlic powder (add extra for garlic lovers) 1 tsp kosher salt 1 tsp black pepper 1 tsp crushed red pepper (optional)

Mix all together and blend well. For best flavor, make sauce 2-3 hours before use

Makes 4-5 16 inch pizzas
