Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Wiviott, who has a popular food chat site, www.LTHForum.com, considers himself "a barbecue life coach." His first book is a tutorial on real barbecue, with more than 130 recipes. A detailed introduction and five lesson chapters, focusing on one master recipe each, provide all the basics and more. Wiviott's style is not for everyone (his mantra is K.I.S.S.—Keep It Simple, Stupid), but most subject collections will want this.

Meet the Author

Gary Wiviott is a barbecue life coach. From the popular online tutorial that started it all to his lively cooking demonstrations and teaching diehards how to set up a smoker in Chicago’s notoriously brutal winter weather, he is committed to spreading the gospel of low and slow barbecue. He is no stranger to the most popular national barbecue forums and food communities, including TheSmokeRing.com, Slow Food USA, and the Society for the Preservation of Traditional Southern Barbecue. Gary is also the founder of LTHForum.com, the Chicago-based culinary chat site.

Colleen Rush is the author of The Mere Mortal’s Guide to Fine Dining: From Salad Forks to Sommeliers, How to Eat and Drink in Style Without Fear of Faux Pas (Broadway, 2006). She knew very little (okay, nothing) about barbecue before meeting Gary—thought nothing of using lighter fluid—but has since reformed her ways and makes a damn fine pulled pork sandwich.

    Great BBQ Resource

    I've been reading and collecting BBQ cookbooks for going 15 years. I've read most of what's out there. I've spent hours reading BBQ websites, posting of forums, and participating on email discussion lists. Low & Slow: Mastering the Art of Barbecue in Five Easy Lessons by Gary Wiviott explains in detail the fundamentals for someone to become the BBQ Pitmaster amongst their family and friends. I spent many years combining recipes, techniques, and suggestions learning what the author is able to explain in the first lesson. I would highly recommend this book to the experienced and inexperienced BBq'r. Both will gain insight to what BBQ means to so many: K.I.S.S. so you can enjoy the folks around you.
