Grilled Pineapple Margarita – Cocktail Recipe

Posted by Anthony Luckino on

As we continue to practice safe social distancing while we #stayathome this season, we have had plenty of time to experiment with new recipes on our TEC grills. Every meal and every occasion is the perfect time to get outside with the grill! From pancakes for breakfast to grilled peaches for our dessert, we’ve been having a wonderful time coming up with fun things to cook.

This week, we tried our hand with grilling a garnish for a handcrafted cocktail. We wanted to liven up our Pineapple Margarita recipe by adding in a punch of bold flavor with a grilled pineapple garnish. Turn up the heat on your TEC to get an excellent sear on your pineapple slices. A quick turn on the grill—about 4 minutes—is all this fruit needs in order to be ready to garnish your margarita.

Grilled Pineapple Margarita

Recipe

  • 1 pineapple, sliced into wedges & grilled
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, sliced
  • 3 cups pineapple juice, chilled
  • 1 cup white or silver tequila
  • 3/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup simple syrup
  • Salt for the rim of your glass

Directions

  1. Mix together all liquid ingredients in your blender until well blended.
  2. Chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  3. Salt the rims of your glasses by running lime wedges over the rim and dipping into salt.
  4. Pour your margarita mix over ice in the salt-rimmed glasses.
  5. Garnish with fresh jalapeños and your grilled pineapple.
  6. Serve & enjoy!

The Ultimate Hot Dog Bar

Posted by Anthony Luckino on

Spring is here and so is grilling season!

While we’re busy spending our days at home with our families and discovering new ways to cook some of our favorite foods, we want to help you liven up what’s usually a straight forward dish: hot dogs. We know, we know, you can put ketchup and mustard on a hot dog and call it a day, but where’s the fun in that? There are so many different kinds of toppings that you can add to your dog to make it truly one-of-a-kind and perfectly suited for your taste buds. Plus, who doesn’t love diving into a food bar and discovering new ways to combine different toppings?

Hot dogs are one of our most favorite—and easiest!—things to cook on our TEC Grill. With the infrared technology, you can ensure the best grill marks on your hot dogs without overcooking or burning them. They’re absolutely delicious when they come off the grill! You’ll want to enhance their flavor by pairing them with some unique toppings.

When it comes to creating the ultimate hot dog bar for you and your family, you’ll want to think beyond just the standard condiments that you can add to your hotdog anywhere. There are no wrong answers when it comes to what to include! Here are some ideas for what you might want to include in your bar:

  • Ketchup
  • Mustard
  • Diced onions
  • Relish
  • Pimento cheese
  • Peppers
  • Sliced avocado
  • Bacon
  • Chili
  • Pickles
  • Tomatoes
  • Jalapeños
  • Salsa
  • Grilled veggies

What are you including in your ultimate hot dog bar this spring? Let us know! When you’re grilling up your hot dogs and setting up your bar, take a photo, and share it with us on social media by tagging @tecgrills, @americanbackyard. We’ll share some of our favorite posts on our Instagram, especially if you include how you’re supporting local businesses in your community while creating your bar.

Fire up those grills—we can’t wait to see what your Ultimate Hot Dog Bar looks like!
