Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The versatility of wood pellet grills—which can function as basic grills, smokers, and even convection ovens—make them an attractive option for barbeque and grilling aficionados in search of an all-in-one outdoor cooking appliance that allows for more control over temperature and flavor. In this informative and accessible collection, pellet grill enthusiast Devon shares recipes for ordinary (though no less delicious) fare, including grilled salmon, Jamaican jerk chicken, Texas-style brisket, and Mediterranean ribs. Devon also explains how to make grilled pineapple upside-down cake, French bread, and a host of sauces and spice blends. Though the author has an abiding affection for hard-to-source ingredients like tomato and vinegar powders for his rubs, the majority of these dishes are flavorful and straightforward, and pellet grillers will appreciate his specific instructions for cooking times, suggested woods (like mesquite, maple, cherry, oak, and more), and even wine pairings. Despite a few filler recipes (one for a "Plain Ol' Hot Dog" seems particularly superfluous), Devon's guide is a great introduction to pellet grilling and outdoor cookery in general, though experienced grillers will likely find little new here.

Library Journal
Because there are few other books on this specialized topic, wood pellet fans will be thrilled. Enthusiast Devon first explains the basics of equipment and methods. The impressive, easy-to-follow recipes are designed to coax the most flavor out of a variety of meat, seafood, and vegetable dishes, and they will inspire cooks using any type of grill. Devon also includes informative tidbits such as wine pairings. Discerning grill chefs will love the rubs, sauces, and marinades. VERDICT This excellent cookbook should not be overlooked because of its specialized title and plain, text-based appearance.

This is the FIRST book that I've read that answers a ton of questions about wood pellet grilling. In fact, I've not seen one in the marketplace since I bought my wood pellet grill five years ago. The "booklet" that was provided with the grill had a few recipes written by "users" but I questioned the validity of the suggestions after the first attempt to use the grill. It was apparent that the author knew less than I did about wood pellets. I've been a BBQ'er for many years grilling/smoking with charcoal, gas, propane and wood. Finding this method of cooking was exactly what I needed. The author of this book knew what he was talking about, including the spice blends, sauces and marinades. I've tried most of them and so far, all are very good. I like the wood pellet recommendations and noted that just changing the wood smoke while following the remainder of the recipes provides a completely different culinary experience. Great Job!!!
