This entry in the publisher's 500 series (500 Cookies; 500 Soups ) uses a similar format to the other titles-about 100 base recipes with four to five variations for each. Kirk (aka the Baron of Barbecue), a Kansas City native, has authored other cookbooks (Smoke It ) and contributed articles to the National Barbecue News and Fine Cooking and Chile Pepper magazines. He uses his barbecuing experience well to offer a variety of recipes-there are not only recipes to please carnivores (e.g., Barbecued Short Ribs, Hot Jamaican Jerk Chicken, and Grilled Tilapia) but vegetable recipes (Spicy Grilled Eggplant and Vegetable Kabobs) and fruit recipes (Glazed Pears and Summer Fruit Packets) as well as some for sweet dishes (Texas Sheet Cake and Grilled S'Mores). While this cookbook is mainly about the recipes, there is a list of approximate cooking times in the introduction. Highly recommended for most public libraries.-Ginny Wolter, Toledo-Lucas Cty.
