    Great book for pit masters

    This book was very useful and had lots of excellent recipes. I gave it to a friend who enters a lot of barbque competions and he loved it! He can't wait to try some of the new rubs and side dish recipes. I tried a few myself and found the directions easy to follow, all measurements very clear and best of all - the results were tasty. Whether you are just starting out learning how to get the most out of your bar b que grill or you're already a master - you'll find something useful in this book. This is a very good gift choice for friends and family and I really enjoyed it.

    Informative

    Once being a professional chef and now an instructor of culinary art, it is very had for me to purchase a cook book. I found this book very helpful in explaining BBQ techniques to my students, and actually using a few of the helpful tips have made my BBQ a lot better. I found some of the recipes very refreshing not to mention found several interesting recipes that I have and will be trying out. Although this book does not give you the per pound, heat & time scale (apparently not many BBQ books do) I found it very useful.

    Best BarBQ Cookbook Ever

    It is not all about putting a pork butt on a smoker and taking it off in 12-14 hours, although the peach injected pork butt was fabulous. There are other recipes too...apple cranberry glaze, Michigan Cherry Sauce to put on a pork loin. The beef brisket (the one in foil) was easily the best I have ever made. Great recipes, very informative.

    This is the king of BBQ books

    Do you love to cook with wood, charcoal, and smoke? This is the book for you. The story of Big Bob Gibson's eponymous BBQ joint is good reading, but the real value is in the techniques and recipes.

    Who would ever have thought of WHITE barbecue sauce? Mayonnaise-based, it is the to-die-for seasoning for BBQ chicken in Alabama. Big Bob dreamed it up, and made it famous.

    Chris Lilly continues the tradition, winning BBQ cooking contests and now, writng it all down for BBQ enthusiasts. Get this book; it is the real deal.

    Best BBQ book I have cooked from

    Big Bob Gibson recipes are terrific. I have only made one of the recipes, but I have made it three times, and everyone loves it. The pictures are mouth watering - they will make you want to become a pit master. The recipes are easy to follow. Almost every thing you need to prepare the food is already in your house or easy to find at your local grocer. No trips to specialty stores searching for expensive ingredients. Big Bob's story is weaved throughout the book. His history is a fun read.
