Last night we had delicous blue fish smoked with apple wood based on the tips in this fantastic cookbook. Our guests kept reaching for more of the fish. We've also tried the chicken kebabs on rosemary branches and a lamb recipe. All were much better than anything we've had come out of a grill. We were all set to buy a gas grill, but instead we bought different types of wood chips and are enjoying are old Weber grill. Great book! We're buying another one for our vacation home.
