Overview

Take your backyard cookouts to a whole new level.

It began with one simple question: What do championship barbecuers love to cook for themselves, when there are no rules but the simple laws of physics and basic chemistry? With more than thirty years of barbecue contest experience apiece, Ardie A. Davis, professional barbecue judge and barbecue historian extraordinaire, and KC Baron of Barbeque Paul Kirk, with a slew of awards under his belt—including seven world championships—were just the guys to ask it.

America’s Best BBQ—Homestyle collects the best backyard cookout recipes from people who have gone pro. Some of the recipes are former competition winners that have earned a constant place at the family table. Others are foods that teams like to make (and share) while they tend their fires on contest day. A few are old family recipes passed down for generations. And some are even the result of ingenious experiments in the kitchen and at the grill. Most are easy. All are sure to win the hearts of friends and neighbors at your next family cookout.

Also included are tips and advice on everything from meal prep to gadgets, some basics to get you started, a few tall tales from the pits, and tons of photos of the dishes and the pitmasters who make them. So pull up a lawn chair, grab a plate, and get ready to sample some out-of-this-world outdoor cooking.

    In the spring, a young man's fancy turns to love, and a somewhat older man's fancy turns to . . . BBQ, baby! It's grillin' and smokin' season, whether at home, the beach, or the campground. Ardie Davis and Chef Paul Kirk have compiled another fantastic collection of barbecue recipes for the backyard chef. Gathered from championship barbecuers, this cookbook contains a variety of different recipes, all with one thing in common. They are all comprised of easily found ingredients and do not require any unusual equipment or skill.

    Each recipe is accompanied by photos and background stories of the contributors, making this fun to read even when you're not grilling.

    We first put the cookbook to the test on a recent camping trip. Using only a small stovetop grill, we were able to grill delicious steaks for our dinner with this recipe:

    Smoke in Da Eye Grilled Coffee-Coriander-Rubbed New York Strip Steak

    COFFEE-CORIANDER RUB

    2 tablespoons ground coffee

    3 tablespoons smoked paprika

    1 1/2 tablespoons coriander seeds, lightly toasted and ground

    1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

    1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

    2 tablespoons kosher salt

    STEAKS

    4 New York Strip Steaks, about 1 1/2 inches thick

    1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

    Mix all the rub ingredients together and set aside.

    Remove the steaks from the refrigerator and allow them to come to room temperature for about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, heat a grill to high, placing the majority of the coals and a couple (optional) fist-sized wood chunks in the center of the grill to create a cool zone on the outer edges.

    Once the steaks have come to room temperature, coat all sides with the olive oil; then season generously with the coffee-coriander rub. Place the steaks in the center of the grill, cover, and cook for 3 minutes. Flip and grill, covered, for another 3 minutes. Flip and cook each side for an additional 2 to 3 minutes, until they reach your desired level of doneness (145 ° to 150° F for medium-rare and 150° to 160°F for medium according to the USDA. Remember, however, that the meat will rise in temperature as much as 10 degrees as it rests.) Remove from the grill and allow to rest for at least 5 minutes so that the juices have time to redistribute and don't end up all over your serving platter or cutting board.

    As it was only the two of us, I cut the recipe in half. It was very simple. I prepared the dry rub at home, then finished the prep work in the camper. My husband did the actual grilling, and he declared this to be a keeper!

    Next, we decided to try a recipe for ribs while at home. We opted for the curiously-named Dirty Dick's Grilled Baby Back Ribs (p. 66). The name aside, these were some awesome ribs! The recipe gives the option of using your favorite dry rub, and since I still had plenty of the aforementioned Coffee-Coriander Rub, that was what we used. Fantastic combination!

    With this book, you will be the envy of the subdivision, the pride of the campground, and the host with the most at the next tailgate party.
