Overview


Heat up the Foreman. Plug in your rotisserie! Make meals in your fireplace and start using that fancy range-top grill. In a marriage made in BBQ heaven, Steven Raichlen, America's grilling guru, brings his mastery of live-fire cooking to the world of indoor grilling. Now, neither snow nor rain nor gloom of apartment regulations will stay the cook from achieving spectacular grilled flavors.

In a contact grill (over 25% of American households own one, with 40 million Foremans alone sold since 1995), make Calgary Hot Wings; Pepper Jack Cheeseburgers with Slow-Burn Jalapeño; Moroccan Grilled Salmon; two dozen panini, cubanos, croque-monsieurs, and muffulettas; and Victory Chicken, the recipe that powered Steven Raichlen to his Iron Chef win. Expand the countertop rotisserie repertoire with Chinese Barbecued Spare Ribs, Leg of Lamb with Garlic Mint Wet Rub, Thai Thighs, and Maple and Cinnamon Spit-Roasted Sweet Potatoes. There are recipes for grill pans, indoor smokers, built-ins on upscale home ranges, and the most basic tool of all--the fireplace.

Sidebars show how to cook most recipes on alternative devices, and tips and techniques abound--how to turn a wok into an indoor smoker, brush bread with olive oil for true crisp-crusted panini, and pick the perfect "grilling" banana--to cook perfectly on a contact grill.

Indoors--it's the new outdoors.

Editorial Reviews

For all those who have Foreman grills, Showtime Rotisserie ovens, panini machines, stovetop built-ins, and fireplaces, America's "master griller" turns his attention indoors. He presents 300 recipes especially designed for contact grills: Pepper Jack Cheeseburgers with Slow-Burn Jalapeno; Moroccan Grilled Salmon; Calgary Hot Wings; Victory Chicken; and dozens of panini, cubanos, croque-monsieurs, and muffulettas. If rotisseries are your game, you can increase your repertoire with Leg of Lamb with Garlic Mint Web Rub; Chinese Barbecued Spare Ribs; Thai Thighs; and Maple & Cinnamon Spit-Roasted Sweet Potatoes. Is indoors the new outdoors?
Publishers Weekly
While Raichlen, who's made a television and book-writing career as an advocate of cooking over live fire, still believes that outdoor cooking is the best way to cook, he admits that isn't practical for apartment dwellers or those living in places with frigid winter temperatures or "grill-burying snowfall." He begins by describing and making recommendations for various indoor grilling devices, from the ubiquitous George Foreman to fireplace rotisseries, and then presents recipes in separate chapters for appetizers, beef, pork, lamb, burgers, poultry, seafood, sandwiches, vegetables, basics (rubs, compound butters and sauces) and desserts. Befitting its brawny subject, the book's chapters on appetizers and desserts aren't filled with frilly offerings that look nice but lack substance. Rather, Raichlen makes Gazpacho with hearty grilled tomatoes, and prepares Grilled Peaches with Bourbon Caramel Sauce using either a contact grill, grill pan, built-in grill or fireplace grill. When the recipe can be prepared on any indoor grilling device (and most recipes can be), Raichlen provides, in a separate box, specific instructions for each type of grill. Every recipe includes informative, enthusiastic headnotes, useful tips and clear, detailed instructions. But perhaps the book's greatest asset is its balanced use of hearty flavors. It's an intelligent cookbook packed with tasty ideas that will keep indoor grillers busy all year long. Photos. (Nov.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
