Overview


Anyone who has ever been to a Fourth of July party, a backyard barbeque, or any red-blooded carnivore will tell you that great grilling is truly a talent. While over 82 percent of U.S. households light up their grill each year, great grilling takes time, practice, creativity, trial and error - or it can be distilled down into one master volume of best grilling recipes written by two dynamos that Bon App?tit has dubbed "the king and queen of grilling." For the folks that want the top recipes and mastery attainable for even the home cook, Cheryl and Bill Jamison lay the groundwork and roll out only the "best of" in 100 Grilling Recipes You Can't Live Without. This backyard essential delivers championship recipes with the Jamison's signature lively wit that reinvigorates the endless utility of this popular cooking technique. Grilling is the meat-lover's cooking method of choice. The heart of the Jamisons' book consists of five big chapters on meats and fish: Steaks, Chops, and Ribs; Blazing Burgers and Haute Dogs; Spit-Roasted (Rotisserie) Poultry and Meat; Chicken, Duck, and Quail; and Fish and Shellfish. A chapter on Fajitas, Tacos, and other Southwestern classics adds to the already substantial main-course selections. The chapter of Vegetable Mains and Sides reveals the glory of fire-kissed produce, and smaller chapters on grilled pizzas and grilled desserts round out the package. You could wander through hundreds of recipes in cookbooks or on the Web in search of the best in grilling tips and recipes, or you could turn to the authorities who have built a commanding reputation in the subject area with over two decades of travel, research, recipe-testing, and writing. Winners of no less than five cookbook awards from the James Beard Foundation and the International Association of Culinary Professionals, Cheryl and Bill Jamison have the chops to offer up a rock-solid compilation of the one hundred best grilling recipes - enough for a lifetime of enjoyment.

Editorial Reviews

Grilling gurus Cheryl and Bill Jamison (Smoke & Spice; Texas Home Cooking; Born to Grill) have been keeping the grill hot for decades. In this justly titled "lifelong companion," the James Beard Award-winning pair leads the way with a winning combination of tasty recipes and meticulous step-by-step instructions. Among the vittles proffered are steaks, chops, and ribs; burger and hot dogs; rotisserie chicken, duck, and quail; fish and shellfish; fajitas, tacos, and other south of the border favorites; pizzas and desserts. A residual resource.

Publishers Weekly
The Jamisons have produced over a dozen cookbooks in their quarter century of shared meals and travels, but are showing little sign of fatigue. Just as their 1995 classic, Smoke & Spice, suggested that the only real way to barbecue is with a smoker, here they instruct that the only real way to grill is to cook entirely with direct heat. In other words, use a grill cover and you might just as well be baking. This is not to say that fire alone is the answer. The chefs focus heavily on the intense flavors of various fruits, herbs, and spices in entrees such as pomegranate lamb chops, rosemary-scented pork loin, and chicken paillard with hot ginger sauce. But when it comes to classics like a porterhouse steak, they know not to guild the lily. Salt, pepper, and butter are all that’s required. Borrowing a recipe from a Chicago landmark, the Berghoff Chicago Beer Burger not only has beer in the meat mix but also features beer-braised onions and mushroom-beer ketchup, while an altogether different beverage adds sass to their Dr. Pepper Baby Back Ribs. If that’s not sweet enough, there are eight dessert options, including a variety of grilled fruits as well as a simple batch of s’mores. Agent: Doe Coover, Doe Coover Agency. (June)
