Introduction

The goal of this book is a simple and direct one: namely, to expand the number of delicious dishes you can confidently cook on your gas grill. The 25 recipes presented here should be considered "sure bets," recipes that come together quickly with a minimum of fuss, have memorable flavors, and can be produced by novice and experienced grillers alike. If you master only half a dozen of the recipes in this book, I can almost guarantee that you will be known far and wide as an excellent griller.

If you’re a novice griller, please read through The Essentials of Gas Grilling on page 00. The list of things you need to know about gas grilling is short but important. It’s good to keep in mind that gas grills were developed to simplify home grilling and that gas grilling remains a very straightforward, simple, relaxed cooking method. The recipes on the following pages reflect that straightforward, relaxed attitude but with a creative, full-flavored flair that is sure to win you, the griller, a lot of compliments. And what cook doesn’t like compliments?

Luckily for the backyard griller, the ever-increasing popularity of gas grills has brought about significant improvement to the grills themselves. Manufacturers have been listening to the marketplace, resulting in better heat distribution, less likelihood of flare-ups, more useful accessories, and better and longer-lasting construction. It’s a good time to be grilling over gas!

Grilling over a live fire is the most adaptable and universal cooking technique known to mankind. Dig deep enough in any of the world’s culinary histories, and you’ll find a grill, a fire, and some tasty food waiting to be turned into a meal. Each time you light up your gas grill and prepare something you’ve never tasted before, you’re engaging in an age-old practice, no matter which culinary tradition you’re trying.
