Beautifully Radiant – Lopi Radiant Plus at Fireplaces Plus

The Radiant Plus™ Gas Inserts are engineered to install into your existing fireplace and designed to provide comforting RADIANT heat PLUS Natural Convection, delivering optimum warmth throughout your home.

RADIANT heat is the cozy, satisfying warmth you can actually feel from any source of heat, such as sitting in front of a campfire or soaking up the rays of the sun.

NATURAL CONVECTION occurs as room air in the convection chamber is heated. This heated air rises, drawing cooler room air into the chamber, which in turn heats up and circulates around the firebox continuously.

Reasonably Priced

With the Radiant Plus™, you get MORE HEAT FOR LESS MONEY; that’s more features and benefits than any other value-priced gas insert available, making it both a beautiful and economical way to heat your home!

Injected Turkey from Dr. BBQ

Dr. BBQ’s Injected Turkey: “For many years I dreamed of traveling the country learning about barbecue — and now I am privileged to make a living by passing on what I’ve learned. In my two decades of travels I have found endless surprises, but there is always one constant and that’s the passion for food. Over the years I have come to realize that cooking on the Big Green Egg is an experience as much as it’s a way to prepare a meal. The versatility of the EGG seems to bring out the best in cooks no matter what their level, and the Big Green Egg is all about serving great food for family and friends during the holidays!

For this next installment of my video recipes I’ll show you how to prepare two holiday turkeys — an Injected Cajun Creole Butter Turkey and a Lemon, Pepper and Herb Turkey. If you are preparing a whole turkey, just double the injection recipe and inject into the thighs as well as the breasts. These are great recipes for Thanksgiving, Christmas or a delicious meal throughout the year.” — Dr. BBQ

Cajun Turkey Ingredients

  • Creole butter
  • Creole rub
  • Apple (if cooking a whole turkey)
  • Onion (if cooking a whole turkey)

Lemon and Herb Turkey Breast Ingredients

  • Lemon juice
  • Fine grain sea salt and black pepper
  • 1 bundle of herbs

Turkey Instructions

  • Set the EGG for indirect cooking with the convEGGtor at 325°F/163°C. (If you are cooking a whole turkey, cook at 325°F/163°C for 12 minutes per pound until the turkey has reached a safe minimum internal temperature of 165°F/74°C throughout the product.)
  • Prepare based on specifications below, depending on which recipe you are using.
  • Cook the turkey breast for approximately 1.5 hours, or until the internal temperature is 165°F/74°C
  • Remove the breast from EGG. Tent with foil and allow to rest for 20-30 minutes.

Cajun Turkey Instructions

  • Inject turkey with Creole butter in a grid pattern. Rub turkey breast with Creole rub.
  • If cooking a whole turkey, place the apple and onion inside turkey and set on grid of EGG.

Lemon and Herb Turkey Breast Instructions

  • Squeeze lemon juice all over the breast and rub with sea salt and pepper.
  • Place the bundle of herbs on top of the breast and set on the cooking grid.

Smoked Brined Turkey on the Big Green Egg

smokedturkeyOnce you try brined turkey on the EGG, you’ll agree that nothing does a better job of roasting meats. The turkey has a subtle smoky flavor and is moist and succulent, but if you prefer a bolder smoky flavor, add more hickory or pecan smoking wood chips in increments during cooking. This turkey is great for holiday meals, and you can use the leftovers to make wonderful sandwiches or meat pies. Recipe courtesy of Kevin Rathbun.



1 gallon water
½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
Rind of 1 navel orange
3 sprigs rosemary
1 cup kosher salt
3 yellow onions, quartered
1 garlic head
2 lemons, quartered
1 turkey, appx. 12 lbs
10 sprigs thyme
10 sprigs sage
3 cups chopped potatoes
¼ cup olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
Garlic powder


Set the EGG for indirect cooking at 325°F/163°C, adding the convEGGtor after you add the smoking chips.

Pour the water into a large bowl. Add the brown sugar, orange rind, rosemary, salt, two-thirds of the quartered lemons and onions and 1 halved garlic head. Mix until the sugar and salt dissolve.

Remove the giblets from inside the turkey and reserve for another use. Rinse the turkey well. Place the turkey in a 2½ gallon resealable plastic bag or any container that is large enough to hold the turkey and the liquid. Pour the brine over the turkey, making sure it’s completely covered. Refrigerate for 12 hours, turning occasionally.

Soak 4 cups of hickory or pecan chips in water for 1 hour.

Remove the turkey from the brine, rinse well to remove the brining liquid and pat dry with paper towels. Discard the brining liquid and solids. Stuff the turkey with the remaining lemon and onion quarters, the remaining halved garlic head, thyme, sage, and 1 cup potatoes. Brush the turkey with olive oil and season with pepper and garlic powder.

Scatter 1 cup of the chips over the hot coals and, using barbecue mitts, add the convEGGtor and the cooking grid. Place the turkey on the Roasting Rack in a Drip Pan; scatter the remaining potatoes in the pan and place the pan in the EGG. Cook for 12 minutes per pound, adding more chips every 30 minutes until the turkey has reached a safe minimum internal temperature of 165°F/74°C throughout the product. If the turkey starts to brown too quickly, carefully tent the turkey with aluminum foil. Reserve the drippings from the drip pan to make gravy.

Remove the turkey from the EGG and let rest for 15 to 20 minutes. Carve and serve.

What the heck is Multifuoco?

No, it’s not the super-food or the name of a Star Wars character.multifuoco2 Multifuoco is a new heat-distrubuting system created by Piazetta and featured on the Piazetta Mirage (available and on-sale NOW at Fireplaces Plus).

The Multifuoco system has the capacity to distribute heat evenly throughout a room maintaining an ideal temperature from the floor to the ceiling.

Here’s how it works, according to

Exclusive technology, evenly distributed heat.

Multifuoco System® is an exclusive technological application that offers comfort and constant warmth.It is an extraordinary system of forced ventilation conceived and patented by Piazzetta R&D engineers, which has been scientifically tested by researchers at the Institute of Technical Physics of the University of Padua. Multifuoco System® allows you to distribute heat evenly throughout one or more rooms, from the floor up to the ceiling.

Comfort and wellbeing with Multifuoco System®.

A truely innovative system compared to conventional heating systems. Thanks to Multifuoco System’s capacity to distribute heat evenly throughout the room maintaining an ideal temperature from the floor to the ceiling. While in conventional systems hot air tends naturally to rise thus creating a heat layer just below ceiling level and color air stays at floor level the Multifuoco System instead warm air to flow out from the bottom vent, thus preventing warm air to stratify close to the ceiling. The innovative system then allows the air to re-enter through the top grilles of the stove to be warmed again and to continue its cycle. This ensures that heat produced is evenly distributed throughout the enviroment.

Warm air ducting up to 16 mt.

Multifuoco System® can become a true heating system for your entire home through a simple ducting system. You can bring the warm air in rooms away from the product or to other floors in the certainty that the comfort level will always be the same as in the room where the product is installed. The ducting system allows you to convey warm air up to 16 metres with a pellet product and up to 10 metres with a wood-burning product. Suitably insulated small diameter flexible pipes (75mm) are used, which are easy to install. The warm air flows into the rooms at floor level through special vents fitted with flow control.

Innovative  electronic controlled version for wood-burning stoves.
Multifuoco System Plus has evolved from the extraordinary forced ventilation Multifuoco System and is designed specifically for wood-burning appliances.

Operation of the whole forced ventilation unit is constantly controlled by an electronic card, which interacts with an innovative LCD remote control.


Truly flexible control system

The electronic control unit offers a selection of three modes of operation:

AUTOMATIC CONTROL: the fan automatically starts and stops according to a precise appliance threshold temperature.

COMFORT CONTROL: the room temperature set on the remote control is reached, there is the option either for the fan to stop and then start again when the temperature drops or for the fan to automatically modulate the power (speed) level.

MANUAL CONTROL: the user switches the fan on. When a precise appliance threshold temperature is reached the fan independently passes to the automatic mode. If the conditions for passing to the automatic mode are not satisfied, the system stops to avoid cool air from being fanned into the room.

The remote control has a high-precision NTC (Negative Temperature Coefficient) sensor for constant and efficient monitoring of the room temperature.

Multifuoco System Plus is compatible with the Burn Control System and the two systems are controlled through a single remote control and a single electronic control unit.

Comfort and wellness for the entire home.

The ventilation system brings the warm air in rooms away from the product or to other floors in the certainty that the comfort level will always be the same as in the room where the product is installed.

Up to 10 metres of ducting. The ability to connect Multifuoco System Plus to a room thermostat makes it even more convenient and flexible to use.
