Overview

Barbecue Nation is a culinary mosaic of what 14 million Americans like to do most when it comes to cooking—make dinner at the grill. Author Fred Thompson has searched across the U.S. for America's best backyard cooks and their favorite recipes—not chefs' fancy interpretations of barbecue classics or pitmasters' ways with barbecue that the reader can't reproduce at home, but 350 recipes that are easy to recreate in anybody's backyard. The book reflects America's ever-changing populations, with recipes with the flavors of Cuba from South Florida, or Brooklyn-born Jamaican jerk, or the taste of Vietnam from the coast of Texas, as well as the country's regional bounties, including grilled salmon recipes from the Pacific Northwest, brats from the Midwest, and Delta Grilled Catfish.

Finally a grilling book that is simple enough for busy people really cooking at home. The recipes include everything from chicken, fish, ribs, and even the best potato salad I have ever had. It is fun reading too, these recipes are from people like your neighbors sharing recipes. The other books read like textbooks. This one is fun!
