More Accolades for Inside the Five Brewing Co.

Inside the Five Brewing Co.Fresh off their victory as the People’s Choice Award winner (and Judges’ Choice runner up!) at the Burger Bash earlier this month, Burkett customer Inside the Five Brewing Company earned a 4-star review in today’s edition of The (Toledo) Blade.

Burger Bash goers were treated to the IT5 burger while The Blade’s Bill of Fare sampled everything from burgers to saison-glazed salmon to bacon-wrapped jalapeno. And, of course, the brewpub’s “ever-changing list of microbrews pair well with the fare.”

The restaurant is in its first year and is owned by Chris Morris and Brandon Fields, two former NFL players who met during their time playing at Michigan State. Hence the clever name. Chris also went to high school with Burkett Business Development Manager Travis Lusky, which helped make Burkett his equipment dealer of choice. Read the full review by The Blade here and learn more about Inside the Five history and offerings by checking out their website here.

Gift Guide for the Burger Aficionado

A Meat Grinder VOL-40743-2

A meat grinder you say? Yes, I do, and here’s why: Grinding your own meat gives you better flavor, better texture, and it’s safer. A dedicated meat grinder is your best option if you’re planning on grinding on a regular basis, so put your food processor aside. If you own a mixer, most companies offer attachments. For the true burger aficionado, a standalone meat grinder like this one from Vollrath offers you the power to grind over 200 pounds of meat per hour.

Squeeze Bottles 352401-2

Let’s face it; if you’re grinding your own meat, you know exactly how you like to dress your burger. The best way to avoid a mess and store any homemade condiments is in these plastic squeeze bottles. They’re affordable and give you that authentic diner feel.

A Hamburger Turner 353062-2

Also known as a spatula, but that’s not nearly as festive, is it? This stainless steel turner is strong enough to keep your burger pressed to the griddle to perfectly sear your patty. Plus, it’s made of sturdy stainless steel that will last forever and hold up against the highest heat.

Commercial Salt Shaker 357473-2

When you’re working fast, seasoning that 200 pounds of burger you just ran through the grinder, you’ll really benefit from having a high volume salt shaker. These stainless steel shakers are exactly what you see at diners and drive-ins all over the country. They’re perfect for rapidly and evenly coating your food with a dusting of salt.

A Griddle Pan VOL-77530-2

This non-stick aluminum griddle pan is a great surface for retaining high heat and getting a nice sear on your hamburger. It’s durable and a welcome addition to any kitchen. While the deep-walled cast iron skilled is the more common pan for burgers, we prefer the shallow sides of the griddle pan which give you a little more leverage when smashing and scraping up patties.
