Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A comprehensive guide to grilling like a professional. Fred's extensive wealth of culinary knowledge radiates throughout this book with superb recipes and tips for cooks of every level." — Kenny Callaghan, Executive Chef/Partner, Blue Smoke Restaurant “Quicker, cleaner, ‘greener,’ safer, more versatile and reliable than charcoal, grilling with gas is clearly the way to go. And with Fred Thompson to guide you all the way — from choosing the gas grill that's best for you, to stocking your pantry, to getting set, to grilling everything from steak and spareribs to chicken and duck to salmon, sardines, sea scallops, and more — you can't go wrong. Thompson's the voice of authority. His GRILLIN' WITH GAS, a new user-friendly manual-cum-cookbook, a global collection 200 recipes strong, proves the point. So grab a copy and fire up the grill.” — Jean Anderson, author, A Love Affair with Southern Cooking “Fred's Top Ten Keys to Successful Gas Grilling are worth the price of the book alone. I never knew I should always grill with the lid down. Now I do, and my grilling is better for it!” —Tori Ritchie, TV Host, www.tuesdayrecipe.com

Publishers Weekly
After picking up a few tricks for 2007's Barbecue Nation, Thompson presents another volume aimed at backyard cooks ready to sweat a little for their meal. Few arcane ingredients or lengthy preparations are called for; Thompson's cornbread requires only six ingredients, his New York Strip just five. Geared for gas, many of Thompson's dishes require little grilling time, and are in general an easy transfer to charcoal. While it's easy to throw some wood chips on a charcoal fire to add smokiness, Thompson offers a handful of easy gas grill work-arounds that diners will never suspect are substitutes. The recipe deck is stacked with favorites like burgers (including lamb, salmon and tuna variations), steaks and sides like baked beans, cole slaw and potato salad, making this ideal for cooks still in their honeymoon stage with the new grill. More adventurous palates should enjoy flavorful riffs on North African Grilled Shrimp (topped with a burst of lemon and crunchy pine nuts) and Cornish game hens, which get a lift from a blueberry, garlic, thyme and vinegar marinade. Finished with sound advice on everything from buying a grill to choosing the right cut of steak, Thompson's book should prove as useful as an extra set of tongs.

My son was given a gas grill for his birthday by his wife. He felt what he grilled was edible. However, he wished he could make the food tastier and in some cases, a little less overdone. I bought Grilling With Gas as it seemed a useful, friendly guide for him. The basic instructions on using a gas grill in the beginning of the book answered many questions he had on using a gas grill. Every recipe he has tried has come out great and his grilling efforts now get him many compliments from his family and friends.
