Dinosaur Bar-B-Que: An American Roadhouse by John Stage, Nancy Radke

Where can you show up for world-class barbecue, stick around for the blues, and shut the place down philosophizing with some truly gritty characters? At Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, of course -- the renowned Syracuse-based honky-tonk rib joint just hankering to share its BBQ excellence with folks outside the state. In this book you'll find secrets to their succulent pit-smoked specialties in recipes you can fire up in your backyard. Join Spiceman John Stage on a journey into the world of low and slow barbecue and fast and furious grillin'. Along the way, you'll soak up the Dino vibe as John shows you how to rev up traditional barbecue sauce to create such dishes as World Famous Dinosaur Ribs, Black & Blue Pan-Seared Beef Tenderloins, or Drunken Spicy Shameless Shrimp with Brazen Cocktail Sauce.

Full-color photography struts the eclectic decor of this honky-tonk rib joint (world's best bathroom graffiti and tattoo art included), and brings you up close and personal with some of its most colorful denizens.

"I come from a place where barbecue is not food; it is a way of life. It is a philosophy of human nature. I have rarely had any as good as this." -Former President Clinton on Dinosaur Bar-B-Que (Sept. 1, 2000)

"Real barbecue recipes for serious eaters." -Food Network
