    Excellent BBQ Book

    I am already a fan of Adam Perry Lang, as I have eaten at his restaurant, Daisy Mays, on numerous occasion and have always loved the food.

    I bought Serious Barbecue: Smoke, Char, Baste and Brush Your Way to Great Outdoor Cooking, because both my husband and I love to barbecue. I make my own sauces--and they are miles better than any commercial sauce--but was ready to try some new recipes.

    I have flipped through the book and recognize recipes that I have already had at the restaurant--and will definitely make them. Some winners include Short Ribs with Fleur de Sel, sticky drumsticks, and Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Banana and Brown Sugar.

    I like the different cooking methods Lang employs, and intend to try all of them this summer.

    Keep in mind, however, that many of these recipes take time and many ingredients to make. The short ribs, for instance, require several steps to make. Lang believes the BBQ is best when the ingredients are added in stages--this makes for complex flavors and an unbeatable texture. The ribs first get a mustard moisturizer, then a seasoning blend, next a wrapping mixture, and finally, the finishing dressing.

    So you don't cook from his book when you're in a hurry. My plan is to have a few BBQ parties this summer and cook from the book.

    If you enjoy BBQ, buy this book! You will be amazed at the difference the proper cooking method and homemade sauces make to your food.

    Highly recommend!

    By the author of the award winning book, HARMONIOUS ENVIRONMENT: BEAUTIFY, DETOXIFY & ENERGIZE YOUR LIFE, YOUR HOME & YOUR PLANET.

    A Must have!!

    If you're seriously into barbecue -this book is for you. The recipes are a little involved, but the trade off is barbecue like you've never tasted before. I've really enjoyed getting into these recipes. If however you want good,but quicker results get a copy of his second book "BBQ 25". I have both and use both.

    The Best in Barbeque!

    Serious Barbeque is simply the best cookbook for barbeque lovers at any level. Whether you are an outstanding griller already, a novice, or somewhere in between, this book has a delicious recipe for you and your whole family to enjoy. CAUTION: This book is for meat lovers only! There's not a single fish recipe in it! And that's fine by me. The book has a fine balance of simple recipes that are easy to prepare and more elaborate concoctions that require overnight marinating and multiple layers of additional grilling throughout the process. I love grilling, it relaxes me; so to have so many incredible dishes to choose from, and tailor my menu to how much time I have and what meat my family is craving is awesome. You MUST try the Lamb Blade Chops with Slivered Garlic and Marjoram! My wife and mother-in-law beg me to make this for them on a regular basis. Overall, this is the best cookbook in our arsenal. Enjoy!

    I Also Recommend:

    Adam Carolla had him on his podcast

    I watched him cook on Adam's podcast and they all seemed to really enjoy his cooking. That said, if Adam Carolla says it's good it is good. I'm going out to buy this book right now.

    Father's Day Gift

    GAve this to my son in law, the Grill Meister, for Father's Day. He had said he wanted it. I also bought another grill book for him, that I thought looked more interesting and was on sale at B & N. He seemed happy with both books.
