Just as the old saying goes…everything is better with butter

Just as the old saying goes everything is better with butter, so too, are the Big Green Egg summer recipes we have picked out for your enjoyment. As your local area Big Green Egg dealer, Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio wants to help you make the most of the time you spend outdoors this season.

The recipes we have chosen to share are simple and hearty. Though each does contain butter, they also integrate some of the garden fresh berries and vegetables that are readily available through your local Dayton area farmer’s markets, or maybe from your own garden!

The Big Green Egg also comes in six convenient sizes to choose from, from the Mini to Xtra large, so there is a model to fit any lifestyle or budget. We also have one of the largest selections of EggCessories in the area. With the outdoor living season in full swing, now is the time to place your order in time to savor all the savory summer recipes that you can prepare on your EGG.

Parmesan Grilled Corn with Roasted Garlic, Basil, and Parsley Banner Butter

Banner Butter Roasted Corn BGE copy

Recipe adapted from Food and Wine

Banner Butter is made with patiently-cultured cream from hormone-free, grass-fed cows with no added flavoring. Banner Butter is available online and at selected locations.

Ingredients

  • 6 Tablespoons of Roasted, Garlic, Basil, and Parsley Banner Butter
  • ½ cup of freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 ears of corn
  • Vegetable oil, for the grill
  • Kitchen twine

Instructions

Light your EGG. Set to 400ºF/204ºC. While waiting, take your Roasted Garlic Basil and Parsley Banner Butter out of the fridge to soften and grate ½ cup of parmesan cheese. Pull husks back from each ear of corn and remove silks. Using kitchen string, tie husks together at the end of each ear to form handle. Lightly brush your EGG with oil. Grill corn over a medium/hot flame, turning frequently for about 5 minutes (or partially cooked). Brush with softened Banner Butter and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Continue grilling, rotating frequently, and brushing with more butter until corn is a deep brown and tender. Serve with remaining parmesan cheese.

Serves 4-6

Peach and Blueberry Summer Pie

Two summer favorites in one delicious pie.

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 6 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • ¾ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ⅛ tsp allspice
  • 4-5 peeled, sliced fresh peaches
  • 1½ cups blueberries
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 pie crusts, homemade or store-bought
  • Extra sugar and cinnamon for topping

Instructions

  • Set the EGG for indirect cooking with the convEGGtor at 400°F/204°C.
  • Mix sugar, flour, cinnamon and allspice together in a large bowl. Gently fold in blueberries and peaches.
  • Pour the filling into an uncooked pie crust. Cut the butter into small pieces and distribute evenly over the top of the filling.
  • Use the second pie crust to create a lattice and cover the pie. Lightly brush the lattice with one beaten egg. Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over the pie.
  • Cook at 400°F for 30 minutes; reduce the heat to 375°F for an additional 25 minutes.
  • Let the pie set for about 4 hours before eating. Enjoy!

You can prepare these easy and delicious holiday favorites on an Egg. Take a look and learn why this is the only outdoor cooker you will ever need:

Grill | Sear the perfect steaks, pork chops or burgers on the EGG. High temperature “steak house” grilling – even at 750º F / 400º C – is quick and easy! Using the two dampers for accurate control, you can lower the heat to a more moderate temperature for other grilled foods. Fish and seafood turn out moist and tender with a flavor-packed crust unmatched by other grills.

Oven | Using the indirect cooking method with a Plate Setter, the Big Green Egg bakes bread, pizza, casseroles, cobblers and pies better than your kitchen oven … you may never cook indoors again! The Big Green Egg retains heat and moisture so well that foods don’t dry out! Poultry, lamb, beef and vegetables are naturally tastier because the juices and flavors stay locked inside.

Smoker | The insulating ceramics of the Big Green Egg allow you to precisely control the temperature even at low heat. A controllable 200 to 350°F / 93 to 177°C gives succulent results with turkey, ham, lamb, chicken, ribs or any of your favorite cuts, infusing them with the aromatic wood smoke flavor. Want to slow cook at low heat for sixteen to eighteen hours … no problem!

Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio is a master of versatile design — as we end the cycle of boring outdoor living spaces

  • Is your deck too small to use it the way you really want?
  • Do you avoid using your deck or patio because it lacks functionality?
  • Is your outdoor living space an eyesore that degrades your home’s appearance?
  • Is your outdoor structure a safety hazard?
  • Is your deck or porch capacity less than 3 people at any given time?
  • Does your patio limit the space you have available for grilling, outdoor dining and relaxation?
  • Do you find yourself “creeping” into the lawn to have more room for outdoor activities?
  • Does your outdoor living environment leave you feeling claustrophobic?

cookoutIf you answered “yes” to any of the questions above, then it is time to end the cycle of cramped, boring outdoor living — and Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio is just the company exceed your expectation of what your outdoor living space can be! Our design philosophy involves more than just building a boring 12 x 12 standard size deck with builder grade amenities. We go far beyond the realm of necessity, thinking “outside the box” to give you the most function and aesthetic for the most value.

 why should your outdoor living space(s) deliver any less satisfaction than those within the home?

Interior of playroom within home.

Your home is one of the single biggest investments you will make. Your home is also the place where you can wind down from the stresses of work, school and other household obligations. This concept is responsible for the titles we use to label certain interior areas of a home. For example a “playroom” is called so for that very reason, we use it for “play”. Whether you define play as reading, board games, or enjoying movie night with the kids. Much the same can be said for the “living” room — after all, this is where most families “live, laugh and linger” indoors. Taking all these factors into consideration, why should your outdoor living space(s) deliver any less satisfaction than those within the home?

Just like the details we pointed out in a previous post titled “Our Dayton & Cincinnati outdoor living space creations emphasize the difference is in the details!” The details of the design make your experience, and how you view the space more fulfilling. Archadeck of West Central and Southwest Ohio specializes in providing our customers with a detailed customer oriented design while paying attention to the intricate details that provide a true, custom, one-of-a-kind structure. Our custom deck, porch and patio designs often include curved, radius edging, picture framed borders, integrated seating, planters and integrated lighting  along with other intricate details you just don’t get with typical builders.

Kettering OH 2013 dream deck project

The first question we ask during your design consultation will be “how do want to use your space.” Along with desired functions and aesthetics, we also inquire about what size and type of outdoor furnishings you intend to use within your space. For example, typically a standard-sized outdoor dining table takes up an area 6 feet long and 42 inches wide, with each standard-size outdoor chair taking up an additional two feet. Factor in ample pull out room for each chair will add another two feet per chair. This adds up to a space that takes up a 12′ x 12′ area. In addition to dining tables, most homeowners want a place for seating as well, which will tack on additional space. Once you add side tables and accompaniment pieces, you are looking at the need for more space than most homeowners had anticipated for their furnishings. This is why discussing details such as furniture choices is also an important part of the design process.

There are thousands of little details that go into designing and building an outdoor living project – some that you see, and some that you don’t.  But their sum total makes up the look, feel and underlying quality of the project as a whole. There are many details that are standard in our designs – both aesthetic and structural – that come as a result of having built thousands of projects. Archadeck of West Central and Southwest Ohio knows the difference in your satisfaction and happiness for years to come lies within the details.  Call us today at (513) 897 – 2040 or (937) 848-7040. You can also email us at wcohio@archadeck.net

This project in Centerville, OH, exemplifies maximum appeal with minimal investment

Centerville OH Patio Extension and Privacy ScreenWhen looking at the vast portfolio of large-scale projects featured on our website people are often reluctant to reach out to us about smaller scale outdoor living projects. It is true that we are indeed a custom design and build company and not a repair company, but we embrace the chance to work on smaller scale projects with just as much vigor as large ones. Remember, that in many cases it is way a design addresses and conforms to your specific needs rather than the size. We recently completed a project in Centerville, OH, that exemplifies getting maximum appeal from your outdoor living space with minimal investment.

Eliminate the negative & accentuate the positive

The main goals of this clients was to add privacy within their existing outdoor living space, and to extend the space to make it more functional. Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio addressed both of these goals within a simplistic design. Additional square footage was added to their existing paver patio and screened panels were added to the perimeter of the space. the beauty of these screened panels is they not only look the part, they keep prying eyes at bay and vice versa, but without giving the “feeling” of being fenced in.

After the project was completed:

Centerville OH Privacy ScreenFor the patio expansion, we used Oberfield pavers and integrated the existing tree into the new area. The privacy screen is Mt. Hope maintenance free vinyl with a decorative lattice top. The entire space feels more open despite adding privacy from every angle.

Here’s what the homeowners had to say about their completed project:

“Very happy with our paver patio, it’s just what we hoped for.”

— Tom S. in Centerville, OH

We specialize in designing and building new outdoor living spaces and upgrading existing outdoor living spaces — in all shapes and sizes, big and small. Remember, custom doesn’t only mean extravagant designs with an unlimited budget, but it does always means a design tailored to your personal needs and tastes to fit your budget.

Imagine your backyard possibilities with Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio!

Kettering OH 2013 dream deck projectWe all daydream about how we imagine our perfect home would be. Whether you love cooking and imagine extending and transforming your kitchen into a culinary crescendo that would make Emeril Lagasse blush, or revamping your two-car into a dream garage worthy of charging admission to enter, we ALL have a vision of improving both the interior and exterior of our homes. Many homeowners have all the right intentions when moving forward with their home improvement endeavors, however, being able to realistically imagine the “vision” is something many struggle with.

With this in mind, Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio has put together a pictorial of before and after images of clients we have completed projects for. Being able to see the dramatic, side-by-side imagery will help homeowners, just like yourself, imagine the endless possibilities in your own backyard!

This sunroom and deck addition in Miami Township, OH, totally transformed this home. The space is designed with year-round comfort in mind and is versatile day to evening.

This Springfield, OH, project entailed adding an upper deck to the homeowner’s existing lower deck. Not only did this provide the shade benefits they had in mind, it also allowed more use of the second story. The new deck is built using premium pressure-treated wood and is designed to accept an under deck rain carriage system, such as DrySnap, in the future.

This Washington Township, OH, screened porch addition changed the whole way these homeowner’s live outdoors and enhanced the aesthetics of their home too!  When we initially met the homeowners for the design consultation they expressed the need for a better space to utilize their time outdoors. Their only outdoor space consisted of a concrete pad which they were using as a patio, but the sun and insects prevented them from enjoying it during the afternoon and around dusk.  The design we created includes a screened room built over the backyard’s existing pad. To further the functionality of the backyard we also built an open-air paver patio off the porch.

This project in Centerville, OH, proves the power of changing an existing outdoor space for the better. These homeowner’s already enjoyed using their existing screened porch for two out of the four seasons, but felt like they were still missing out on some prime usage. With our professional installation of a EZE Breeze system of vertical sliding panels of vinyl windows backed with screens, they do get more! When the weather is right, they can slide them down for a screened in porch, and pull them right back up when it’s raining!

In 2013, Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio was chosen to design and build the deck for the 2nd place winner for the Dream Backyard Makeover contest, which was sponsored by Archadeck Outdoor Living and Belgard Hardscapes. As you can see from the before and after pictures, which were part of the entry to this contest, we took this backyard from dull to dazzling!

How realistic is your outdoor living addition budget?

BudgetThe subject of budgets is an integral part of every outdoor living space project we do. It is obviously not the most glamorous or most-anticipated element that goes into planning your custom outdoor oasis, but is a necessity in ensuring the vision you have is realistic. Just as we covered in our article ” What does shopping for an outdoor living structure and a car have in common?” it’s only natural for homeowner’s to want the most “options” at the best value. The search for the “right” contractor is much like shopping for a new car — finding the best value with all the features you want within your budget.

BudgetsIt is imperative to establish a budget for your outdoor living project. Deciding how much you want to spend needs to be decided upon before we begin designing your project. This is why we inquire about your intended budget during your initial phone call because of the importance of having one in place before proceeding. We realize this is sometimes a hard decision and we make every effort to make it the opposite (easy). If you are unsure of where you need to set your budget, we can show you our portfolio and pictures to help you get an idea of what you want and what you want to spend.

Archadeck outdoor living blissOne thing is certain when it comes to outdoor living spaces: Imagining yourself having one is easy but being able to afford your expectations of that image can sometimes be difficult. This is mainly because often homeowners have a surreal expectation of what a custom outdoor living space can cost, and what they can afford. This is where our commitment to superior customer service, honesty and communication come into play. We are poised to accommodate the customer, in every way. We ensure all the groundwork is in place from your initial consultation to completion of your project which includes helping you establish a realistic budget. We also extend the utmost flexibility to our customers through a detailed materials and pricing menu, for example if one facet of your vision won’t work with your budget, then we can suggest alternatives that can bring you just as much satisfaction. We also strive to keep you in tune with scheduling and ensuring we not only meet but exceed your expectations as we plan, schedule and complete your project.

The ultimate backyard room
