Cooking The Perfect Turkey

Post: Cooking A Turkey – Frequently Asked Questions
Publisher: EuroChef
Published: October 21, 2018

What size turkey will fit in my range?

  • In a 30” or wider single oven or range, expect that a 25 lb. or more turkey will fit easily.
  • In a double oven, a 10 lb. turkey pan will fit in the smaller oven as shown in the photo below.
  • In our smallest 24” wall oven interior, a 16” X 13” X 3” inch pan will fit which holds about a 20 lb. turkey.

How long should I cook my turkey and on what cycle(s)?

One of the best recipe and cooking guides we love to follow is from Sur La Table at:

www.surlatable.com

The times below are based on roasting the bird (unfrozen), breast side up, at 400°F for the first 30 minutes, then reducing the oven to 325°F and roasting until done. Aim to have the bird done about 45 minutes before serving to allow it to rest for 30 minutes – and time to carve. The times below reflect an unstuffed bird.

Turkey Weight                           Roasting Time

10 to 12 lb.                                        1 3/4 to 2 1/4 hours

12 to 14 lb.                                        2 to 2 1/2 hours

14 to 16 lb.                                        2 1/4 to 2 3/4 hours

16 to 18 lb.                                        2 1/2 to 3 hours

18 to 20 lb.                                        2 3/4 to 3 1/4 hours

20+ lb.                                                3 to 3 3/4 hours

How do I know if my turkey is done?

A meat thermometer is the best way to determine when the turkey is properly cooked. The breast should register 165°F and the thigh, 175°F.

Cook with stuffing or not?

According to Epicurious, “If the bird is removed from the oven before the stuffing reaches 165°F, some bacteria could remain alive and make you and your guests sick and unfortunately, getting the stuffing all the way up to 165°F is a little trickier than you might think.” A good alternative is to make the stuffing separate – but use the drippings from the bird in the gravy and a bit in stuffing as well to moisten and add that flavor.

Will brining reduce cooking time?

In some cases, brining can cause a turkey to finish faster – a meat thermometer is best method for telling if a turkey is safely cooked to its moist perfection.

European Convection

Verona ovens use True Convection cooking which means that the turkey will roast evenly on all sides. Many people do not baste in between with convection as the even airflow insures the Turkey will stay moist without the interruption. Each time an oven door is opened, the cooking temperature drops and it takes longer for the meal to roast – increasing the chance for it also to dry out. So frequent basting could have the opposite impact of drying out the meat instead of keeping it sealed/moist. The best method is to sear and seal at 400 degrees first and then slow roasting without opening the door unless necessary. There are even cooking thermometers that measure wirelessly or wired outside the oven so you don’t even need to open door to see if it’s done.

Once the turkey is done, true convection cooking prevents flavor transfer so you can safely warm your casseroles on multiple shelves as the turkey rests for 30-45 minutes.

Industrial Warehouse To Beautiful Home

Blog post: Guest Post: White Shanty Design’s Industrial Warehouse Home
Published by EuroChef, October 23, 2017

Hi there! We’re Seth and Jenna, the husband + wife team behind @Whiteshantydesign. Two years ago we bought a barn style industrial warehouse that we run our businesses out of. In the front of the warehouse we do weddings and events, and in the back we manufacture all kinds of industrial handmade furniture that we ship all over the world. About nine months ago we decided to turn the 3,000 square foot attic portion of the warehouse into our home.

 

We did everything from the wood floors and finish work, to the furniture and electrical ourselves. We had a very specific look that we wanted and knew the kitchen would be one of the most important rooms in the home. After all, it is where we gather the most for our meals and memories.

We went with a European industrial style design throughout our home, and the Verona 36” Dual Fuel Double Oven Range helped us complete the look. Verona offers a variety of colors to choose from, but the True White was exactly what we had been searching for! Not only is it stunning aesthetically, but the functionality is beyond what I could have hoped for!

I have never had a gas range before, and can I just tell you what a difference it makes?! I love the open flame, and continual grates make it easy to have multiple dishes cooking simultaneously. We’re all about providing wholesome meals for our family, and with five different burners there is plenty of room to cook everything at once. The burners on the cooktop sit closer to the grates than traditional ranges which helps our dishes cook and get to the table more quickly.

I love having the double oven to have dinner going in one side, and dessert in the other. I have plenty of mouths to feed, so the spacious convection ovens are a huge plus for me. When I found out that the larger oven can cook a turkey up to 25lbs., I was sold. I’m especially looking forward to trying out all seven of the cooking modes in both convection ovens.

I cannot say enough good things about my Verona, and if I had to do it all over, I’d choose them again and again. It really was the missing piece to finishing off this space in our new home, and I look forward to baking cookies and making meals for years to come with my five little ones gathered around me in our kitchen. Thank you, Verona, for making it happen!

Color Is The New Stainless

Article: Bringing Color into the Modern Kitchen By Wendy Helfenbaum
Published By Metropolis Magazine, September 18, 2017

No longer a modernist faux pas, color and decoration are adding sophisticated style to today’s kitchens. After decades of clinging to monochrome and stainless steel as the standard finishes in contemporary kitchens, it’s time for a bold injection of color. And with the kitchen increasingly an opportunity for showcase and entertaining, the once humble and utilitarian range is stepping into the spotlight with an expanded palette of finishes and a chef’s dream set of features.

Since launching its premium residential and commercial ovens and cooktops in 1952, the Italian manufacturer ILVE has become synonymous with timeless beauty, exceptional functionality, and technical innovation. Handcrafted with precision near Venice, each range represents a culinary objet d’art, ideal for those who are as passionate about design as they are about cooking.

New options including color, finishes, and modern details allow ILVE’s classic motifs to integrate seamlessly into today’s “transitional” kitchen. Designers can now specify every element—from color to cooking method—to create the perfect focal point around which host and guests will be delighted to congregate. Available in either eight standard colors or in more than 200 custom RAL—including Cadium Yellow, Traffic Purple and Cobalt Blue—the Majestic, Nostalgie and Techno collections of ranges are sure to fit into any design scheme.

The Majestic line—available in both dual fuel and all-gas—comes in five sizes from 30”-60”, equipped with single or double ovens. With trim options including brass, copper, oil-rubbed bronze, or chrome and four different leg styles, customization lets these kitchen centerpieces be unique and refined.

Incorporating the same technical features as the Majestic, the Techno Collection also offers modern extras like a tubular style handle, sleek stainless steel knobs, tubular legs, trim-less doors and panels, and an optional upper handrail.

When working with smaller spaces, ILVE’s compact Nostalgie ranges are 24” deep, and available in widths starting at 24”. Featuring a powerful all-gas configuration, the ranges include an upper handrail, digital clock and timer, pre-heat indicator, hearth-shaped window, tubular legs and a storage/warming drawer.

For each product line, a wealth of accessories – including cast iron steak pans, chopping boards, griddle covers, pizza stones and basins for steam cooking – further enable each range to meet any personal taste and cooking style.

ILVE’s latest custom options allow for personalization, making each kitchen unique, whether the design calls for a muted range to blend in with a monochromatic scheme or a spotlight-worthy shade to create a vibrant focal point.

In staying true to its heritage while embracing new design options and technological innovations, ILVE has contemporary solutions for every dream kitchen.

Smoked Turkey, Brisket, And Squash – Oh My!

Blog Post: Caliber Smoked Turkey
Published by Caliber Appliances, November 10, 2017
Blog Post: Smoked Brisket
Published by Caliber Appliances, November 16, 2017
Blog Post: Smoked Spaghetti Squash
Published by Caliber Appliances, September 25, 2017

Who says the holidays are meant to be enjoyed indoors? These mouth watering recipes from Caliber Appliances will make any barbecue enthusiast feel like a seasoned gourmet chief.

Caliber Smoked TurkeyRecipe
Wash and brine your turkey with your favorite dry brine. Inject turkey under the skin with one cup of apple juice. Stuff turkey with your favorite stuffing and cover exposed stuffing with foil before cooking.

Prepare the Caliber Pro Kamado Smoker by filling the blaze basket accessory with lump charcoal. The basket should sit on the charcoal plate at the rear of the smoker with the hinged part of the grate above it so you can access it. Bring the temperature of the smoker up to 300ºF and once the temp has settled, place your turkey centered directly on the grate, breast facing up and allow 1” of space between turkey and smoker lid. Now add a small handful of apple and pecan smoking chips to the blaze basket and close the lid. The smoker will “smoke” for the first 30-60 minutes of the 3-4 hour cooking process (20-30 min. per pound) and after this time, there should be “clean” heat exiting the top vent. Too much time with “smoke” may impart a bitter taste into your turkey. Continue to cook the turkey, checking on it every hour or so with the heat not exceeding 325ºF or falling below 250º F.   If the skin darkens too quickly, then tent foil the turkey to avoid burning the skin. Enjoy the amazing juicy smoky flavor you get from the Caliber Pro Kamado.

Ingredients for Smoked Turkey
15-20 Lb. Turkey
1 Cup apple juice
Your favorite dry brine and stuffing

Caliber Smoked Brisket Recipe
Prepare the Caliber Pro Kamado Smoker by lling the indirect blaze basket accessory with lump charcoal. The basket should sit on the charcoal plate at the rear of the smoker with the hinged part of the grate above it so you can access it. Bring the temperature of the smoker up to 230-275oF. Trim the fat from the brisket. Put a light coating of salt and pepper or your favorite meat dry rub on your brisket and place it on the top grate once the temperature has settled. Now add a small handful of apple and pecan smoking chips to the blaze basket and close the lid. The smoker will “smoke” for the rst 30-60 minutes of the 9-10 hour cooking process. After this time, there should be “clean” heat exiting the top vent. Too much time with smoke may impart a bitter taste. Continue to cook the brisket, checking them every hour or so with the heat not exceeding 250-275oF until the brisket reaches an internal temperature of 200oF. You will be amazed by how juicy this brisket is without having to inject broth into it or refuel your coals during the process.

Ingredients for Smoked Brisket
12-15 pound brisket with fat trimmed to 1/4” Your favorite meat dry rub, or just salt and pepper

Caliber Smoked Spaghetti Squash
Cut your spaghetti squash in half and scoop out the seeds. This is easy if you microwave the squash for 1-2 minutes to soften the skin. Drizzle olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder over the top of both halves. Fill a metal broil pan with about 1/4 inch full of water. Place your squash upside down on the pan. Heat your smoker to about 350º F (approximately 20-25 minutes) using mesquite lump charcoal within the center of the bottom charcoal plate. It is recommended that you do not use wood chips because they tend to impart a bitter taste to vegetables. Close the lid to cook for about 45 minutes or until the water starts to evaporate and your squash turns golden brown. You can cook the squash using a similar process on a gas grill or in the oven; however it will lack the smoky favor and tenderness you get from this process. Scoop the squash out of the shells and serve as a delicious and healthy side dish.

Ingredients for Smoked Spaghetti Squash
Spaghetti squash (halved)
Olive oil
Salt and pepper
Garlic powder
Mesquite lump charcoal

Dreaming in White

Blog Post (Excerpt): The Stove
Blog: The White Farm House
Published: April 20, 2017 by Morgan Ford

So I thought I would talk a little bit about the stove we chose in the recent kitchen remodel since so many of you have asked about it! And, lets face it, its my favorite part of the kitchen!

Why I chose Verona is the first thing to consider. For starters, it is the most used and important feature in the kitchen in my eyes! Previously we had a cheap electric stove with the matching microwave on top, and I will NEVER do that again. Our microwave died within the first few years, and the built-in vent hood was SO loud, we couldn’t talk to each other in the kitchen when it was running. Talk about annoying! And cooking on an electric stove top is just a nightmare. I never knew how much I could enjoy cooking as much as I do now with our gas range. Oh, and back to why we chose Verona, another important factor for me was the fact that parts are readily available. I was worried that with this being an Italian stove would cause problems down the line if something went wrong, but Verona reassured me parts would be easy to get if ever needed. EuroChef USA is the exclusive importer for America and service can be dispatched to anywhere in the county.

DUAL FUEL
It took me MONTHS to decide IF we would be buying their stove, and even longer to decided WHICH stove to get. We chose dual fuel and I found it to be most economical and functional.

DOUBLE OVEN
I (umm I mean we ;P) chose the double oven because I love the versitility of cooking desert and dinner at the same time. And that I have the option of heating up a such smaller space when I want to bake something quick and small like banana bread for the kids!  I worried the “larger” side would still be too small for those large dinner, but boy was I wrong. The larger side can fit a 25 lb turkey, and still can fit my 9x13in pans! Talk about a win win!

WHITE WHITE WHITE
Okay, lastly- why in the world did I choose a white stove? I asked my friends, my mom, everyone which color to chose and they allllll said stainless. Come on now?! No one was adventurous like me I suppose?! Yes stainless would have been the “safe” route, but I like to be different! And truthfully, I have stainless appliances and hate them. I had looked over and over at other kitchens I liked and inspirational photos galore, and the biggest thing I was drawn to was the stove. It is the focus of attention and such a used and important decision! So here she is, the white stove of my dreams!

Dream Kitchen Becomes Reality

Excerpt from: A Kitchen Remodel Update – A Story of a Girl and Her Stove By Mikki Claggett
Published by The Not So Perfect Housewife (Blog), March 20, 2017

After a few months of dust, banging, paint colors choices, and last minute decision making.. the kitchen I have been seeing in my head for the past six years is finally here!

Before

After

Our Florida Bungalow, as we like to call it, is over 100 years old. We bought it back in 2011 as a repossession, so we don’t have a lot of the history on it.

When planning out this kitchen remodel, I knew I wanted it to flow with the rest of the house. I didn’t want it to look too modern and I wanted it to tell a story of it’s own.

Vintage was the way I wanted to go. Modern technology, but with a vintage look. That’s what I had always pictured. Yet, when I started researching.. OH MY.. vintage and technology comes with quite a price tag.

That was until I found Verona Appliances. Not only did they have a somewhat vintage look with the features I wanted, but they had a color options and prices that had me hooked right away! To say that I was excited is an understatement.

I LOVE dual fuel stoves. I had one in our very first Florida home and I was thrilled to see that this was an option through Verona as well. Looks and practicality… what more could you want, right?

Dual Fuel means that the cook top is gas and the oven is electric. This allows a nice hot heat for cooking on the burners and being able to quickly shut the heat off when done. No waiting for burners to cool down or need to remove your pan. As for baking, the constant heat you receive from baking allows for a nice even bake. Perfect for cakes, cookies, and even casserole dishes.

With the addition of the sliding telescopic shelf (not standard), cooking on this beautiful appliance has been a blast. Everything heats up quickly, bakes evenly and has me wanting to cook more and more every day.

I had never heard of Verona Appliances before I started looking for new stoves, but I’m so glad I found them. The stove is not only amazing to cook on, but it’s made really well.

European Design For A Warm Tone

Blog post: European Inspired Kitchen Made Complete With ILVE
Published by EuroChef, March 28, 2017

This once divided kitchen and dining room was transformed into an open concept, family oriented kitchen, complete with a Midnight Blue 36″ ILVE Majestic range with Bronze trim.

Designer Meghan Browne, from Jennifer Gilmer Kitchen & Bath Ltd., flipped this cluttered space into a breathtaking kitchen. Wanting to keep family at the heart of the project, she opened the floor plan to make it an extension of the living space.

“I enjoy collaborating with my clients, which makes every design completely personal and unique,” said Browne. “Visiting the client’s home at the beginning of the design process starts the inspiration for the project.”

Browne focused on integrating European design influences to complement the warm tone of the space. “The table is in the center of the kitchen which is a layout you would more likely see in a Italian or French country kitchen,” she commented, adding that the Zinc countertops and range hood are similar to materials used in Paris.

The 36″ ILVE Majestic range in Midnight Blue was used as a pop of color against the neutral color cabinets.  The Bronze trim on the range provided a truly unique combination for the kitchen as an additional touch of personal flair. “There are a few companies with ranges that offer appliances with color, but it was clear ILVE was the perfect fit.” The range emitted a European style and offered modern touches such as a gas cooktop and an electric oven. “The ILVE Majestic Series Range added the furniture detailing and punch of color of a classic European kitchen to complete the look.”

Smoked pulled pork never tasted better and more succulent than on the Caliber Pro Kamado Charcoal Grill and Smoker. To get started, lightly coat the entire pork shoulder with olive oil and mustard to tenderize the meat. Cover the coated pork shoulder in foil and refrigerate for at least one hour, preferably overnight. Right before cooking, apply a coating of your favorite dry rub over the pork shoulder. You are now ready to place your pork shoulder on the grill for a long 10-12 hour smoke.

Stunning Renovation with Limited Space

Excerpt from: Our New Verona Range and Review By Anissa Zajac
Published by House Seven Design (Blog), February 15, 2017

      

We turned what was the original dining room and part of the kitchen in to a much more open kitchen area and we are so happy we did. It took a lot of planning and researching the products that we have used in our kitchen space.

One thing that we were sure of was that we wanted a professional oven range and it had to be 36 inches. We also didn’t have the square footage to add in built in double ovens so we would have to figure out a way to incorporate that in to the design. The problem that most of you know, is that professional ranges are so expensive and then you throw in a double oven, GULP!

Not to mention, the reviews on most of the more popular mainstream brands leave a lot to be desired. So what to do? I mean in all honesty, we didn’t have $8000-$10,000 in our budget for a range and I was weary of spending less on an off brand that seemed to be made in china by the same companies but with a different name on them. We were stuck.

That is until I found the Verona. They are made in Italy and I honestly couldn’t find much information about them at first. After lots of time searching the internet for information, I decided to just search Instagram instead. Thankfully, I found quite a few reviews on the range and I was able to see real life photos!! One of the reviews I read was from The Faux Martha. I have followed her for quite some time on Instagram and after her raving review of her own Verona duel fuel range, which means gas stove top and electric oven, I thought this might actually be the one for us and for far less than the other brands I had been researching.

I finally made up my mind and purchased the Verona 36″ double oven with dual fuel and 5 burners. Then I crossed my fingers and hoped and prayed I had made the right choice.

We have had the range for a little over 3 months now and we are so happy with it. I’m actually quite blown away with what an incredible range it really is. The front burners are both 12,000 BTU and the back are 6000. The center is between 1000 to 16,000. If you want power then this is it but with the back burners being just right for lower temps and simmering. The other thing that I noticed with a lot of the other pro ranges was they didn’t have timers on them. Okay, so I’m not a professional cook and I wanted a clock and a timer. The oven has multiple settings including a defrost setting and for those that wonder just how much you can fit in the larger oven? Well, we fit our 20lb. turkey in there for Thanksgiving without any issues at all.

We are so happy that we decided on the Verona! It has been a such a wonderful addition to the kitchen. It’s not only beautiful but works perfectly. We have had zero issues with the range and I don’t anticipate any to come in the future.
