This book was given as a Father's Day gift. As beginner and as a person who really doesn't like to cook this book was an inspiration. It shows all of the steps in preparing and grilling just about any food any person might want to grill for one person, a family or a large group.

My dad taught me the grilling basics, but I was interested in more advanced techniques like smoking and multi-zone fire pits. After reading the instructions in this book (and memorizing them, lol) I learned to gage the heat of the fire and the internal temp of the meat. Yesterday, I cooked a 12 pound pork shoulder for just over six hours on a charcoal grill and I have to admit... I made the best pulled pork I've ever had. The instructions in this book are extremely clear and easily understood. The writer regularly references topics from previous pages for those that like to skim or need a quick refresher. Every topic (that I know of) is covered. This book is the next best thing to having a grill master stand next to you. Don't forget that every grill is different. Where the book called for twelve coals added every hour, I had to add nearly 24 to keep the temperature up. Just a big grill I guess. Enjoy the book, it's excellent!

I have watched cooking shows for years and have always had questions. I have to say that this book answers all of them. I have made about seven of the recipes and all of them were great and easy to follow in the book. I was never a great bbqer, but now I feel very confident. I highly recomend this book. Thank You Steven. Cookin Karen

I thought I made good ribs,chicken and burgers, but after reading Steve's book, boy was I wrong! I wasn't marinating correctly and meats were tough, ribs not moist. I read the book over several days and fgured out how to properly do it and VOILA tasty moist food at long last! Pics are very helpful in step/step prep. My favorite BBQ book by far.Worth every(low priced) dollar.

I have this book handy every Friday when I am planning what I want to grill over the weekend. It provides inspiration on what to prepare. The instructions are clear and concise. The photos are extremely helpful. And the variety of options is nice. I have used it so much the binding is starting to break. Just one note. I use a Weber Performer charcoal grill and find the recipes easy to use.

The great thing about this book is even if you are an experienced griller, it still gives you ideas on different receipies and techniques. I bought it to answer a few questions about grilling fish and I've learned a whole lot more. It has inspired me to try all sorts of new things instead of making the same dish the same way each time now I mix it up so that it keeps it interesting for the family eating the meals.

As a begining griller, this book is just perfect for me. I love the Saffron-Grilled chicken and the Spatchcocked chicken recipes. And learning how to grill vegys was a bonus.

I recently purchased this cookbook, anticipating warm weather and cooking outdoors. Although I have several cookbooks in my collection for grilling, I must say that this is the most comprehensive and easy to use cookbook that I have found. It is filled with recipes, tips and great advice from starting a grill to gas fired grills and cooking equipment. I like it because it really explains the technique of perfect grilling. There are tons of recipes which include grilling all the basics ¿ steaks, burgers, chicken, satays, wings, quail and turkey, pork every kind of fish you can imagine, shellfish from shrimp to clams. There is a section just on grilling vegetables - asparagus corn eggplant mushrooms, potatoes, pizza and quesadillas. Desserts such as grilled pineapples and pears, and S¿Mores are also included. I especially love the chapter on rubs, sauces, herbed butters, relishes and salsas. There are 498 pages of easy- to-read recipes and more than a 1000 photos so you can see how the recipe is made, step by step. So I do recommend this book very highly if you are interested in perfecting your grilling techniques or just looking for some new, delicious recipes for grilling with ease.

He has truly turned backyard grilling into an art. With excellent techniques and some great recipes, this book is an ideal gift for the barbeque master in your house. The beer can chicken is excellent.

Detailed, practical guide to grilling! Everything I need to know to prepare food for the grill. Includes cuts of meat, recipes, tips, illustrations, etc. It is one of the most informative cook books I've ever used.

Colorful, plentiful illustrations -- step-by-step techniques (everything I could imagine needing to know) . . . plus recipes. Makes a great gift for anyone, especially a man. Nicely designed to appeal to all. Well done!

This is quite simply the best grilling book available. You won't believe the compliments you'll receive after cooking some of the dishes in this book. The recipes are very interesting and extremely unique. Never would I have imagined grilling pizza until reading this book. It is superb. I've been grilling for 30 years and since receiving this book I have found a renewed passion. In summary: A great book for neophyte and veteran grillers.

The day I came home with this book, my husband claimed it as his. Each recipe has step-by-step instructions with pictures, from starting the fire to garnishing. A great book for the amateur grill jockey or the accomplished grill master.

We have this book in paper version and bought it to take it with us more easily because the book is rather large and heavy. The book will only open on my Nook. The Nook app for iPad will not allow the book to be viewed on the iPad.

I have quite a small collection of grill books, but I needed help with smoker receipes. Good book for that in addition to authors expertise in all aspects of grilling.

I bought this book because of the seasonings. I have a hard time finding simple ways to season stuff..anything from vegetables to meat, and this book uses seasonings that I have at home, nothing fancy that I have to go track down.

Great from beginner to an experienced cook over fire. Very easy to follow. Great recipes and tips! Answers questions other books don't like should I or shouldn't I add unlit coals to a fire when cooking past 1 hour for beer can chicken, turkeys, pork shoulders, and differences of types of charcoal, etc. If you're beginning cooking over charcoal, a MUST READ with recipes. If you've cooked over it before, expands other options on food.
