Arizona Wholesale Scottsdale Cook-Off

Outdoor Grilling Event in Scottsdale

Eight Top Brands Cook for our Trade Customers

Before the heat really hits the Valley, Arizona Wholesale hosted their customers to a grilling cook-off. Some of the best grilling brands you can find, showed their stuff on the outdoor patio of Arizona Wholesale's Scottsdale showroom at The Design Center in Scottsdale. Take a look!

Hestan is a luxury grill brand that in just a few years has made a big mark in outdoor grilling. Luxury features include grill lighting that goes on and off when you open and close the hood. By the way, the hood is counterbalanced so that it will stay open in any position. Known also for their Napa Winery and a line of cookware, Hestan offers a broad array of stylish grills. Marty Sanchez, local appliance expert, shows his cooking skills on this built-in Hestan Grill.

One of my favorite grills, Dacor, pulled out all the stops for the Cook-Off by bringing their Dacor Grills on Wheels to the event. They've outfitted a trailer with Dacor Grills that they take to events to cook up some special treats.

Caliber Appliances, another California-based company, has a great variety of outdoor grills including this traditional grill that they used during the cook-off.

and this unique Rockwell Grill.

Going back to traditional grills, Wolf, one of the most famous indoor cooking brands, also has a great lineup of outdoor grills. Here they are at the Arizona Wholesale Cook-Off with one of their most popular models.

Do you like Pizza? How would you like to have your own outdoor Pizza Oven? Here are a couple of examples below:

This pizza oven from WoodStone is built-in to a brick console, and is outfitted with a granite countertop and under-counter refrigerator.

Here's a portable outdoor pizza oven from Lynx. When you sell your house, you'll definitely want to take this with you!

Cool, Refreshing, Healthy 4th of July Recipe

Enjoy the Fourth of July with Your Family

Arizona Wholesale Supply will be closed next Monday, July 4th so that our associates can enjoy the Holiday with their families. Here's a great recipe for your celebration on the Fourth from Chris Scheuer that I came across while browsing our supplier websites.

Chicken-Nicoise-Salad

This recipe caught my eye because, I'd been thinking of grilling vegetables as part of our menu on the 4th. I love grilled vegetables. I keep them crunchy, but get some nice grill marks on them, and they make a really colorful, and flavorful addition to the protein of choice. In this recipe, hamburgers or hot dogs are replaced with chicken for a lighter, healthier approach:


Grilled Chicken Nicoise Salad

Makes 4-6 servings
INGREDIENTS
For the chicken
1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 tablespoons kosher salt
1 tablespoon sugar
4 cups water

For the dressing
1 cup fresh basil leaves, tightly packed
Finely grated zest from 1 medium lemon
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 medium clove garlic, crushed
2 teaspoons anchovy paste
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup extra virgin olive oil

For the salad
1 pound small red potatoes, cut in bite-size pieces
3/4 pound long, thin green beans
3/4 cup Nicoise or Kalamata olives, drained
4 medium Roma tomatoes, halved, each half cut in quarters
4 large hard boiled eggs, peeled and halved
1 large head bib or butter lettuce, leaves separated, washed and spun dry

DIRECTIONS
For the chicken, combine 4 cups cold water, 2 tablespoons kosher salt and 1 tablespoon sugar. Stir until the mixture is clear and all salt and sugar have been dissolved, about 30 seconds. Add the chicken and place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour and up to 4 hours.

While the chicken is brining, make the dressing. Combine basil leaves, lemon zest and juice, garlic, anchovy paste, Dijon mustard, sugar, salt and pepper in the bowl of a blender or food processor. Blend/process till the basil is finely chopped. Slowly add the oil while continuing to blend/process. Stop when all the oil has been incorporated and the dressing is smooth. Transfer to a glass jar or container with a tight fitting lid. Set aside. Dressing can be made up to 24 hours in advance. Shake well before serving.

Place the potatoes in a medium-sized saucepan. Cover with water and add 2 teaspoons kosher salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a steady simmer and cook for 8-10 minutes or until potatoes are fork-tender. Drain well and transfer to a bowl. Drizzle lightly with extra virgin olive oil and toss to coat. Season lightly with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Set aside.

Place the beans in a gallon sized plastic zippered bag. Add 1 teaspoon of water and close bag, leaving a small opening for steam to escape. Place bag in microwave and cook on high power for 3 minutes or until beans are crisp and tender. Drain the beans and place in a bowl. Drizzle lightly with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle lightly with kosher salt. Toss to coat.

Preheat your Gas Grill to a medium-high heat.

Lynx-Grill

At about the same time you start the grill, remove your chicken from refrigerator, drain and pat dry with paper towels. Drizzle the chicken lightly with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle lightly with kosher salt and generously with black pepper.

Brush and oil the grill grate of your grill. Arrange the chicken on the grates and grill for 3-4 minutes per side or until light golden brown and an instant thermometer registers 160˚F. Remove from the grill and drizzle with a bit more olive oil and tent with foil for 5 minutes. Slice and serve warm or at room temperature.

To serve, line individual plates or a large platter with lettuce leaves. Arrange the chicken, potatoes, green beans, and remaining salad ingredients over the lettuce. Serve with dressing on the side.


If you're in need of a new gas grill, whether built-in or freestanding, Arizona Wholesale Supply has a great selection of premium grills for you to check out. Call one of our three locations today to make an appointment with one of our consultants.

Created by the legendary David Rockwell and Caliber Range Corporation, this luxury grill has a canopy that rolls under the cabinet leaving an open table that can be accessed from any side. There’s really nothing to compare it with, but think along the lines of a communal gathering place around a grill.

It’s much more than a clever idea, however. At the Caliber Range Corporation, the same folks who founded DCS, are busy re-inventing outdoor grills with their exclusive CrossFlame™ system (see details below). The Caliber Grill features three 20,000btu CrossFlame™ burners.

•Three 20,000BTU type 304 stainless steel Crossflame™ burners (patentpending) •Exclusive Crossflame™ radiant system (Trademark and Patent pending)

Dinner Party at the Last Minute

17620226_SYou’re in a panic. Your husband just called and he’s invited his boss, or your in-laws, or your neighbors over for dinner. It’s 3:00 PM and everyone is expected at 6:00 PM. What are you going to do?

Don’t panic. We’ve got you covered. With these simple tips you can have a sparkling clean house and an elegant, gourmet meal for your guests to enjoy in no time at all.

First, make a quick trip to the grocery store. Look at the selection at the butcher counter. Kebobs, chicken breasts, fresh salmon or flank steak are all good options. Just be sure you have enough propane at home, because you are going to make your husband grill the main course.

Slow roasted tomatoes with garlic and olive oil make a great side dish that is easy and quick. While your husband is grilling away, wrap some asparagus in foil with butter and spices and put it on the grill until they are crisp tender.  Make some jasmine rice in your rice cooker (if you don’t have one, get one for the future) and viola you have dinner.

For a quick appetizer, take proscuitto and wrap it around pieces of melon, or cut the proscuitto into squares and bake at 425 degrees until crispy. Add a small ball of goat cheese and a thin slice of granny smith apple and your guests will swoon.

When it comes to dessert you can easily purchase a fruit tart or cheesecake or you can get pre made cookie dough and some ice cream and make ice cream sandwiches.

Remember while you are out to stop at the liquor store to stock up on chilled white wine, a good pinot noir and some beer.  Make sure you have soda and sparkling water for those who are feeling abstentious.

At home, get your kids to help set the table. Grab a laundry basket for any clutter in and around your house. Hide it in the bathroom behind the shower curtain. Run the vacuum or do a quick mop so your floors are sparkling. Check that your guest bathroom is clean and stocked with towels, toilet paper and hand soap.

Guests like to help, so don’t feel as though the meal has to be ready the minute they walk in the door. Have the appetizer ready and some wine and let everyone socializes while you grill and finish the side dishes.
