Smoking Hot Outdoor Appliances and a Celebration of Grilled Meats

Family barbeques should be more thrill than just a grill. Ever grill meat on outdoor appliances that have an integrated wood smoker and herb infusion system? Oh yeah, now we’re talking.

Luxury Outdoor Appliances for the Manly Dream Kitchen

By now you know we are big fans of Alfresco’s LX2 Grills (or as Alfresco refers to them, ‘Open Culinary Systems’), and think they are the cornerstone of high quality outdoor appliances. Home-Tech highly recommends Alfresco’s 36″ model, and we also sell the 30″, 36″, 42″, 56″ Deluxe and  the 56″ Jumbo All Grill. All of the Alfresco models sport a smoking and herb infusion system.

outdoor appliances - smoker drawerDetails on the sensational smoker drawer include:

  • A dedicated 5,000 BTU stainless steel burner with cold smoke capabilities.
  • Wood drawer hold large wood chunks, which are better than the wood chips
  • Linear diffusing vents naturally eject smoke at 200 to the food zone
  • The smoker drawer/herb infusion system is heated by the grill, adding humidity and flavor to the grilling environment while the food cooks in moisture.

Culinary Creativity is Possible on Outdoor Appliances

Imagine creating something unique like a smoked lamb roast with rosemary or smoked fish with citrus, all done on your Alfresco grill. Simply by using the herb infusion/wood smoker drawer, old dishes can be made new again. The key to perfectly grilled food is the control and flexibility needed for all kinds of foods and cooking styles. The versatility of these outdoor appliances make it worth the investment. We’ve provided you with a smoky and delicious recipe for ribs for you to try. Remember, put in your favorite type of wood in the smoker drawer as it is the key to these ribs. We hope you enjoy, get messy and enjoy the good times around the grill.

Sweet N’ Smoky Ribs


  • 3 tablespoons and 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons and 1/2 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon and 1-3/4 teaspoon packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon and 1-3/4 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon and 1-3/4 teaspoons ground white pepper
  • 1 tablespoon and 1-3/4 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 8 pounds baby back pork ribs
  • 3/4 cup and 2 teaspoons apple juice
  • 3 tablespoons and 1/2 teaspoon packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons and 1/2 teaspoon barbeque sauce


1.  Stir together the salt, white sugar, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, black pepper, white pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, chili powder, paprika, and cumin in a small bowl to make the dry rub. Rub the spice mixture into the baby back ribs on all sides. Wrap the ribs well with plastic wrap, and refrigerate at least 30 minutes prior to cooking.

2.  Place the baby back ribs onto the grates of the grill. It is ok if the meat is touching, but to not stack.

3.  Fill the smoker drawer with apple, grape, pear, or cherry chips, and bring the smoker to 270 degrees F (130 degrees C). Smoke for 1 hour.

4.  Stir together the apple juice, 1/4 cup brown sugar, and the barbeque sauce. Brush the ribs with the sauce every 30 to 45 minutes after the first hour. Cook the ribs on the grill until the meat is no longer pink and begins to “shrink” back from the bones, 3 to 4 hours. Brush the sauce onto the ribs one last time 30 minutes before the ribs are ready to be taken out of the smoker.

5.  Once the ribs are done, wrap them tightly with aluminum foil, and allow to rest 10 to 15 minutes. This will allow the juices to reabsorb into the meat and make the ribs moist.

Best Laundry Tips for a Better Wash – Tips for Laundry Appliances

appliances washer dryer laundryDoes your washer have a funky smell? Are you over stuffing it full of laundry? Stop the insanity and get the most out of your laundry appliances by following these tips:

Do Consider a Top Loading Washer.

It’s been approximately 10 years since the front loading washers made a big splash in the marketplace, but now, high-efficiency top loaders are gaining speed. These appliances sport high-efficiency operations, low water usage and bigger capacities. One our favorites include the Maytag Bravos XL® HE Top Load Washer with PowerWash® System.  Get the Best Cleaning in the Industry enabled by PowerWash® system, plus the sanitary cycle with oxi helps eliminate 99.999 percent of common household bacteria. The allergen cycle reduces 95% of common household allergens like pet dander and dust mites.

Don’t Over Stuff the Washing Machinelaundry appliances 2012

Over stuffing your front loading or top loading laundry appliances is a major No-No. If you fill your washer to the brim, not only will your clothes not get clean, but you risk putting extra stress on the motor and can wear it out. Of course, we want you to call Home-Tech for repairing your appliances, but we also want you to get the most you can out of them. Our advice: fill top loaders three-fourths full and front loaders two-thirds full. These are the manufacturers suggested fill levels to get the cleanest clothes while having your appliances operate at their best.

Don’t Let Your Washer Do the Waddle Dance Across the Floor

While watching your washer do the shimmy shimmy shakes is entertaining, it is not good for your appliances. Front loaders and top loaders can both wobble. First, evaluate your loading technique. Are you shoving all the heavy clothing, like jeans or pants to one side of the basin? Second, is your washing machine on level ground?  If you have tried to remedy the wobbles without success, these may be signs of a future breakdown. In this case, call Home-Tech for laundry appliance repair service.

Do Check Your Hoses

When was the last time you took a look at your washer’s hoses? We know this isn’t something you may do on a routine basis, but really, you should. Hoses on these appliances can wear out after five years if they are made of plastic and rubber. Take a good look at them, and try to spot any holes or cracks. If you see any, schedule service with Home-Tech and they can replace these with more durable hoses.

Do Routine Cleaning of the Washer Basin.

Just because a washing machine cleans your clothes, doesn’t mean it cleans itself. Your machine’s wash basin, when not maintained, is a breeding ground for mold, mildew and foul odors. We have two easy cleaning solutions for you to try out. The first is Affresh, washing cleaning kit. The kit contains cleaning clothes and tablet you drop in your machine. You can purchase these in our Appliance Showrooms. The second suggestion is using good old Clorox bleach. Pour one cup of bleach into your empty machine and run it through a warm wash cycle.

appliance dispenser in washer for detergentDon’t Add Too Much Detergent.

Those lines on the laundry detergent cap aren’t a eye-chart test. They are a well-tested and proven measurement for getting clothes their cleanest. The lines aren’t a suggestion, they are the rule. Our appliance experts suggest using even less than the recommended amount. You could wind up with soap scum on your clothes along with an icky residue, and no one wants that.  For those of us that are allergic to dyes and harsh soaps, unclean clothes will cause increased itching. So do yourself and your clothes a favor and follow the rules of the cap.

Do Call Home-Tech If It Makes Weird Noises

Did you hear that? If you are hearing a loud clicking, buzzing or humming noise from your washing machine or weird noises from any of your home appliances, call Home-Tech. We are the appliance repair experts and can repair any brand of appliances. Nights, weekends, and even tropical storms can’t keep us away from assisting our customers with their appliance repair needs. When you need a new appliance or repair service- you need Home-Tech.

Self Cleaning Ovens Get Steamy – An Evolution in Appliances

steam2It’s getting hot in here. The steam cleaning option on Whirlpool’s 4.3 cu. ft. Single Wall Oven burns up the competition among appliances when compared with the old self cleaning option. If you have tried this method please share how it worked with us on our Facebook page.

How Much Time Do You Spend Cleaning Your Appliances?

Really? That little? Well, what if we told you that we found a quick and efficient means to clean your oven in only 20 minutes? Allow us to introduce you to the cook’s new best friend in the kitchen, the Steam Clean feature on Whirlpool’s ovens. Use the Steam Clean on small spills such as cheese or sauce from pizza or snacks, or drips from casseroles. You have got to stop in our Fort Myers or Bradenton showroom to check this out in person.

Steam Clean is Not Self Clean

It’s an old approach made new again for cleaning kitchen appliances. Clean up after every day light spills using only heat and 1-1⁄4 cups of water—no harsh chemicals or cleaners needed. When used periodically to clean light spills, it keeps the oven floor clean and reduces the need for frequent self-clean cycles. If your oven is heavily soiled, Whirlpool recommends you use the Self-Clean cycle. The Steam Clean cycle may be used first to eliminate most of the debris, resulting in a more effective self-clean.

Safety First When it Comes to Steam and Appliances

Here is a detailed checklist about the proper way to use the Steam Clean feature:

  • Do not use oven cleaners or any other additives with Steam Clean.
  • The Steam Clean feature is designed for light oven cavity bottom cleaning.
  • Use the Steam Clean feature as soon as possible after spills occur.
  • The longer a spill sits and dries in the oven, the more difficult it may be to remove.
  • Allow the oven to cool to room temperature before using the Steam Clean feature
  • For best results, pour 10 oz (295 mL) of distilled or filtered water onto the oven bottom.
  • The Steam Clean feature will take a total of 25 minutes. “Wipe the oven” will appear in the display at the end of the cycle
  • Since the water in the oven bottom is hot, do not open the oven door during the Steam Clean cycle.
  • Once the Steam Clean cycle is complete, remove all remaining water and debris in the bottom of the oven with a sponge or cloth.
  • Wipe any remaining moisture from the oven door interior, oven cavity interior sides, and cooktop.
  • Use a soft brush or nylon scrubber to wipe the oven interior. This may help with more stubborn stains.
  • If any soil remains, run a second Steam Clean cycle to help loosen debris for easier removal.

Nest-ing, not Wrestling with your Air Conditioning

Nest is the first thermostat that learns from you. Teach it well to stay comfortable in air conditioning and heating at home and save energy when you’re away.

air conditioning thermostatMeet the Nest, Learning Thermostat

Home-Tech is always looking for the latest and greatest in air conditioning. Recently, we came across, Nest and were impressed with its functionality. While there are many thermostats on the market, this little guy really got our attention. 

Most people set the air conditioning temperature to 72 and forget about it. The result is high energy bills. Your home’s temperature should change with your schedule. Nest can make the temperature changes for you , but first it needs to learn about you. Teach Nest well, and within a week it will activate the air conditioning and heating energy-saving features. Have a multiple zone air conditioning system, multiple nests can communicate with each other.

Air Conditioning and Exploring the Nest

Auto Schedule

Use Nest like a regular air conditioning thermostat. Turn it up when you’re cold and down when you’re hot. Every time you change the temperature, Nest remembers what you like.

Auto Away

Nest senses when  you’ve been out for a couple hours and sets itself to an air conditioning temperature that’ll save energy. You’ll choose the Away Temperatures Nest uses during set up.

The Nest Leaf

The Nest Leaf appears when you choose a temperature that saves energy. Every degree counts. Changing the temperature a single degree can cut your energy use by up to 5%.

Energy History

Keep track of your energy use in the Energy History. You’ll see how much you used and what made the biggest impact on your air conditioning bills: your temperature changes, Auto-Away or the weather.

air conditioning mobile multimedia nest Air Conditioning Monitoring Gone Mobile

The Nest is so cool, it even has its own Mobile app. You can change your air conditioning temperature anywhere at anytime. Download the app for your smartphone or tablet at nest.com. You can also connect Nest to Wi-Fi to get automatic software updates. Use your Nest account to change your home’s temperature, see and adjust Nest’s schedule and check local weather from anywhere.

Is Nest Compatible with Your Air Conditioning?

Nest works with most of the popular air conditioning systems, including:

  • Forced air, radiant, heat pump, oil, gas and electric
  • One or two stage conventional heat
  • One stage cool
  • One stage heat pump with auxiliary heat

Nest Available at Home-Tech

We’ve Never Had Bad AC or Appliance Service From Home-Tech

AC Repair - Fort Myers

August 29, 2012

Hello Home-Tech:

I am writing to say that Tim V – did our air conditioning maintenance service on 7/25 and did a very efficient job.  He called to tell us he was 10/15 minutes away and arrived promptly within that timeframe.  When he arrived he introduced himself to us and our dog (which we really appreciated since it keeps him from barking) and then got to the task at hand.  I showed him where all the equipment he would be working on was located.  He was thorough and efficient as well as pleasant.  It was a very hot and humid day – a lot of people would have been grumpy, but Tim was very friendly and quite customer oriented.

We have a maintenance contract with Home-Tech on all of our appliances and we have never had bad service. Your techs know what they are doing, are always nice, and treat us with respect.  We really are happy that we changed to Home-Tech.

Air Conditioning Repair Alva, Florida – Competent Performance

attaboy_sealblueDoes Home-Tech provide air conditioning repair in Alva, Florida?  Yes we do.  Here’s a customer testimonial about our service.  Way to go, Shawn.

Efficient and Courteous

August 13, 2012

Dear Home-Tech:

On Saturday night, 8/11/2012, Shawn visited our home to get our air conditioning working.  He called me at about 22:15 and arrived at 22:20.  After listening to my description of the vents leading up to the A/C failure, he immediately diagnosed the problem, changed out the capacitor, got the unit working again, thus cooling our home, discovered a freon leak, restored the outside unit to its working condition and departed at about 23:30.

He was efficient and courteous and promised to report the leak for future repair.  He also advised me of the services that Home-Tech offers for complete A/C unit replacement and described the approximate time frames for performance.

I followed up with your office this morning, 8/13/2012 and confirmed that parts were ordered for the forthcoming repair that a service call would be scheduled by your office once those parts were received by you, thus confirming that Shawn delivered on his promise.

All in all, with his late night scheduling and his competent performance and courteous presentation, Shawn represented your company very well, and I would be glad to have him return to my home in the future.  Shawn is an excellent representative of your company.  Thank you for employing him.  Employees like Shawn confirm to me that I have made the correct decision in keeping a Gold Service Agreement with Home-Tech.
