Gaiss' Market presents "Summer BBQ Tips & Tricks": Tomahawk Steak


Gaiss’ Market, located at Bates & Bayshore Road in Villas, NJ, is a proud sponsor of Wildwood365. Join us each Tuesday on Wildwood365.com and @wildwood365 on social media as we share our summer BBQ tips and tricks.

This week is all about the Tomahawk Steak! 

A tomahawk steak is essentially a ribeye steak specifically cut with at least 5 inches of rib bone left intact. The long rib bone has been flayed of its meat to give its hatchet-like appearance. The tomahawk steak is an incredibly tender steak with buttery, rich flavor. They’re commonly found at Wildwood festivals, like the NJ BBQ Championship & Blues Festival, but you can make your own right at home! 

For the best steak, take your tomahawk out of the fridge an hour before cooking. Season with salt and pepper, on both sides, and let it come to room temp. Preheat your grill to 475-500°F and let the temp hold for a few minutes to get the grill nice and hot. You’ll want a very hot grill to get perfect grill marks and lock in flavor. 

To cook a Tomahawk, you’ll need a pair or two of long tongs. These steaks are sometimes difficult to flip, due to their size and the fat strip which can flare up on the grill. Always be safe and wear grill gloves if you’re more comfortable. 

Tomahawks vary in size but at Gaiss’ ours are typically two to three inches thick. You’ll want to cook your steaks for 6-8 minutes on each side, then lower your heat to around 350 and continue to cook until your desired temp is reached. We love 130* for medium rare. Don’t forget when your tomahawk comes off the grill it will continue to cook. To keep the steak juicy, rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing. 

You can get your Tomahawk steak, seasonings and sauces, sides and more all at Gaiss’ Market! 

Gaiss’ Market is located at 1215 Bayshore Road, Villas New Jersey, open everyday from 8 AM-6 PM. Make sure to stop by for all of your BBQ needs and check our gaissmarket.com for more info and sales.

Gaiss' Market presents "Summer BBQ Tips & Tricks": "Meat Your Needs!"


Gaiss' Market, located at Bates & Bayshore Road in Villas, NJ, is a proud sponsor of Wildwood 365. Join us each Tuesday at Wildwood365.com and @Wildwood365 on social media as we share our summer BBQ tips and tricks...

This week Gaiss’ “Meat Your Needs” Package is on sale through Sunday, 8/14, for $219.99! 

This package includes 10 lbs of Ground Beef, 10 lbs of Boneless Chicken Breast, 10 lbs of Sirloin Steak, and 10 lbs of Pork Chops. 

With the ground beef from Gaiss’ Meat Your Needs package you can make your own burgers! Burgers tend to change shape on the grill and flattening them with a spatula is an instinct, but did you know you lose the juices this way? Keep the burgers juicy and flat by simply pressing your thumb into the center of the raw formed patty before it goes on the grill.

Make the most delicious barbecue chicken with boneless chicken and Gaiss’ own recipe BBQ sauce. Check out last week’s blog for instructions on how to make the perfect barbecue chicken. 

As for the sirloin steaks, simply add salt and pepper to each side, place your steaks on the grill and cook until golden brown and slightly charred. This means 4-5 minutes on the first side then flip and cook for another 3-5 minutes for medium rare, 5-7 minutes for medium, or 7-8 minutes for medium well, depending on the thickness of the steak. Thicker steaks require longer book times.

Have you ever tried grilling pork chops before? If not, now is the time! 

Preheat your grill to 400ºF. Place the pork chops over direct heat on the grill and cook for 6-8 minutes on each side or until the internal temperature reaches at least 145ºF. Remove the pork chops from the grill and let rest for 3 minutes before slicing. Grilled pork chops go great with grilled corn and potatoes, both available at Gaiss'!

Head to gaissmarket.com/explore to see Gaiss’ Meat Your Needs Package and other meat packages available. 

Gaiss’ Market is located at 1215 Bayshore Road, Villas New Jersey, open everyday from 8 AM-6 PM. Make sure to stop by for all of your BBQ needs and check our gaissmarket.com for more info and sales.

Gaiss' Market presents "Summer BBQ Tips & Tricks": Grilled Chicken Breast


Gaiss' Market, located at Bates & Bayshore Road in Villas, NJ, is a proud sponsor of Wildwood 365. Join us each Tuesday at Wildwood365.com and @Wildwood365 on social media as we share our summer BBQ tips and tricks...

At Gaiss' Market, get 20 percent off chicken breast this week!

Chicken on the grill is a delicious dinner, perfect for hot summer days. Make sure your grill is preheated before placing the chicken in so you can get those nice grill marks. Once preheated, put your chicken breasts on the grill and close the lid. It's important to make sure the lid is closed while the chicken is cooking so no heat escapes.

Cooking chicken on the grill varies on heat and thickness of the breasts. Grill time is anywhere from 6 minutes per side for thin breasts to 10 minutes per side for thicker cuts. Be sure to cook your chicken to 165 degrees in the thickest part of the breast.

Elevate your chicken breast dinner by adding Gaiss' house made BBQ sauce for a classic BBQ chicken or switch it up with our house made Orange Chipotle Sauce, Southern BBQ Peach Sauce and more. Simply brush your sauce on your chicken breast in the last few minutes of cooking.

Don't forget your sides! Gaiss' is proud to offer fresh produce like potatoes and corn, homemade salad sides and so much ore.

Gaiss' Market is located at 1215 Bayshore Road in Villas, NewJersey, open everyday from 8 am - 6 pm. 

Make sure to stop by for all of your BBQ needs!

Morey's Piers' Ukrainian Humanitarian Relief Campaign raises over $120,000


Generous contributions coming from the community and loyal customers...

PRESS RELEASE

THE WILDWOODS – Morey's Pierstogether with the support of the community and loyal customers, raised just over $120,000 in donations to provide humanitarian aid within Ukraine and refugee support in neighboring countries.  

"Like so many Americans, the Morey's Piers' family is deeply saddened by the horrific events impacting Ukraine and her 44 million citizens, many of whom have now become refugees," said Will Morey, President & CEO of Morey's Piers. "These feelings are even more heightened in knowing that many former colleagues who participated in our Summer Work Travel (SWT) programs through the United States Department of State are directly impacted." 

In the spring, Morey's Piers launched a Ukrainian Humanitarian Relief Campaign as a way to raise funds for the much-needed assistance of those affected. In this campaign, Morey's Piers provided a free combination Amusement Pier and Water Park ticket for each donation of $100. Customers could also make an additional donation when purchasing tickets online. 

To ensure the donations collected are distributed promptly and directly to those aiding the Ukrainian people, the following organizations were chosen after careful consideration with reliable sources, including the input of former SWT staff members. 


"We appreciate the very fine work that these organizations are doing, which aptly enables others to join their efforts in making a difference, "added Will Morey. 

According to the UNWLA, 80 percent of their donations come from companies like Morey's Piers that hold small events and grass-root campaigns to raise money. To date, the organization has sent hundreds of pallets of medical aid to key hospitals around Ukraine, concentrating on those treating injured military. Aid has also been provided to evacuate children from orphanages and help women and children displaced from their homes. 

"We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of generosity, caring, and support for our brothers and sisters in Ukraine," said Natalie Pawlenko, President of the UNWLA. "Donations from organizations like Morey's Piers help us bring urgently needed humanitarian aid into Ukraine."

"Over the last several decades, we have worked closely with many students and agencies in the Ukraine," said Denise Beckson, Vice President of Human Relations. "When you see and hear about the devastation directly impacting our former student colleagues, their families, and their communities, we are compelled to show them our support from afar."  

Morey's Piers has been participating in the Summer Work Travel Exchange Programs since the early 1980s and has hosted hundreds of Ukrainian students. Summer Work Travel Exchange Programs are effective in building bridges of respect and mutual understanding between cultures and work to strengthen international education and exchange.  As a committed advocate for the importance of cultural exchange, Morey’s works hard to create and facilitate educational and cultural exchange opportunities aimed at helping young professionals worldwide build successful careers and make a meaningful impact on their home country communities.

"We have been very fortunate to have worked with thousands of young people from across the globe; we love hosting these students and providing them the opportunity to experience the American way of life first-hand,” added Beckson. "It is important that we not only talk about American ideals, but that we demonstrate them, thus it was imperative for us to join with our customers and community to show our support to the Ukrainian people in their fight for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."
