Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

If Ph.D.s were awarded for expertise in cooking specialties, Steven Raichlen would likely become the first Doctor of Barbecue. The man Esquire dubbed "America's master griller" has already graced patio tables with bound-to-please reading materials: Over four million copies of his Barbecue! Bible series are in print. With his new offering, Raichlen goes truly global. Planet Barbecue! spans the world with its grilling recipes, touching down in 60 countries to snag their most tasty offerings. Of course, backyard food hounds are less impressed by passport histories than by savory vittles and this paperback has plenty: Sample, for example, Cape Town's Pork Kebab with Dried Apricots and Curry or Germany's Speissbraten (thick pork steaks seasoned with nutmeg and grilled over a low, smoky fire.) Grilled to perfection.

Publishers Weekly
Barbecue cookbooks are often large; every Raichlen barbecue cookbook is large in its own way. Reaching beyond the scope of his BBQ USA (425 recipes in 784 pages) and the 10th edition of his Barbecue! Bible (500 recipes in 556 pages), this Tolstoy of Tabasco traveled the globe thrice, stopping everywhere he could think of in search of the next great dinner. Six continents, 53 countries, and 275 recipes later, there is grilled crocodile with garlic walnut lime sauce from Kenya, and Singaporean grilled pork belly. There is Kuwaiti chili shrimp, and kangaroo kebabs from you know where. Each country gets a two-page profile, which lists the types of grills and fuels most common to the region, dishes that are a must if you happen to be in the neighborhood, as well as what traditional condiments one might expect to find on one's beef, fish, pork, or vegetables. There are also profiles of various “Fire Starters,” grill masters he has met on his voyage such as Madam Djan and Miss Panin, the grilled fish divas of Laos. The chapters are arranged by meat rather than point of origin, so the Serbian bacon-grilled prunes are seated next to the jalapeño poppers, and Laotian grilled fish sits next to Canadian trout grilled on a log.

Table of Contents

Introduction:
Dateline: Planet Barbecue

The Discovery of Fire and the Invention of Barbecue

Time Line:
Two Million Years of Barbecue History (in 2,000 Words)

Grilling With a Conscience

Starters:
Your passport to Planet Barbecue. Fire-charred vegetable dips and kebabs. Smoked Egg Pâté. Grilled Quesadillas, Pork Jerky, and Israeli Spiced Foie Gras. Get your barbecue off to a fiery start. 

Salads:
When it comes to grilled salads, eggplant reigns supreme—with peppers not far behind. As proof—Filipino Grilled Eggplant Salad and Bell Pepper Salad with Capers and Pine Nuts. A chapter’s worth of recipes with smoky, snappy, rich flavors that you’ll remember long after the flames have died. 

Grilled Breads:
Whether simply toasted over the flames, like Crostini and Bruschetta, or baked from scratch on the grill, like Naan Crusted with Pumpkin, Poppy, and Nigella seeds and Turkish Puff Bread—you can’t beat bread that’s spent time on the grill.

Beef, Veal, and Game:
A world of fiery options, including Caveman T-Bones with Hellfire Hot Sauce, Butterflied Sesame-Grilled Beef Short Ribs, and the infamous Buenos Aires “Heart-Stopper,” a butterflied New York strip steak with bacon and eggs. Plus Baby Veal Chops with Garlic, Dill and Russian “Ketchup.”

Pork:
Go hog wild! The recipes in this chapter give you every opportunity: Puerto Rican Pork Shoulder, Kansas City-Style Spareribs, Pepper-Spiced Spit-Roasted Pork, Russian Onion and Pork Kebabs; even a Whole Hog in the Style of a Greek Island.

Lamb and Goat:
Lamb is the meat of choice for most of Planet Barbecue and the recipes show the love: Enjoy Australian Lamb on a Shovel, Méchoui of Lamb or Goat with Berber Spices, and Peanut-Crusted Lamb Kebabs in the Style of Burkina Faso. And if you haven’t tried goat, start with peppery, tongue-tingling Piri-Piri Goat Kebabs.

Ground Meat:
Across cultures and continents, every grill master speaks the language of ground meats. Sample some of the best: “Kobe” Beef Sliders, Really Big Bosnian “Burgers,” Ground Lamb Kebabs with Coriander and Cumin, Bratwurst “Hot Tub,” and so much more.

Poultry:
The world’s barbecue trail offers up an astonishing array of grilled poultry: Beer-Can Chicken with Asian “Pesto,” Francis Mallmann’s Salt-Roasted Chicken, Cumin-Grilled Chicken Breasts with Fiery Bolivian Salsa, Israeli Smoked Goose, and Brown Sugar- and Orange-Brined Smoked Turkey. Who needs a stove when you have a grill?

Fish:
Fish the way it was meant to be cooked—fire roasted. Treat yourself to Planked Salmon with Juniper Rub and Berry Glaze, Tuna Steaks alla Fiorentina, Grilled Hake with Fried Garlic, and Mexican Grilled Fish Tacos. The possibilities are endless.

Shellfish:
Bring out the briny ocean flavors of fresh shellfish with a blast of smoke and fire. Shrimp on the Barbie (#2), Grilled Oysters with Ginger, Soy, and Jam, Mussels Grilled on Pine Needles, and Hanoi-Style Grilled Squid with Chiles and Lime. These are just a few of the killer recipes included in this chapter.

Vegetables and Vegetarian Dishes:
Imbued with rich, smoky flavors, these dishes elevate vegetables to crisp, crackling new heights: Coconut-Grilled Corn, Bacon-Grilled Eggplant, Grilled Shishito Peppers with Sesame Oil and Salt, and Paella “Primavera” on the Grill. Meatless grilling just doesn’t get better than this.

Desserts:
Live fire has a way of transforming familiar desserts into jaw-dropping surprises. Grilled Ice Cream? You bet. Smoke-Roasted Apples with Japanese Sweet Bean Paste, Grilled Bananas with Coconut-Caramel Sauce, Fair Trade Chocolate Banana S’mores—don’t put out the fire till you finish dessert. 

The Nuts and Bolts of Live-Fire Cooking:
All you need to know to get your grill fired up and at the ready.
