Overview

The Barbecue! Bible by Steven Raichlen, Margaret Chodos-Irvine

With a lifelong curiosity for the affinity of food and flame, Steven Raichlen set out on a three-year adventure to experience live-fire cooking in 25 countries. He visited steak houses in Buenos Aires and sate stalls in Bali. He journeyed to Boston Beach to find Jamaica's best jerk, savored shrimp grilled on ember-filled hubcaps in Vietnam and vegetables seared on infrared gas grills in Tokyo. And back home he tasted the best ribs in Kansas City and Memphis and the finest of the slow smoked briskets of Texas.

The tales of Raichlen's travels, the recipies he gathered and the dishes this journey inspired him to create are all in his authoritative new book, The Barbecue! Bible. It is the definitive cookbook on global grilling, offering tips and techniques for all kinds of live fire cooking -- from rotisserie to fire roasting. With Raichlen's insider list of the world's top 25 grill restaurants, a glossary of special ingredients, a directory of mail-order sources and the most extensive collection of grilling and barbecuing recipies ever published, The Barbecue! Bible is a must for the serious cooks' shelf.

Steven Raichlen is the author of 16 books, including Miami Spice, which won an IACP/Julia Child Award and the High-Flavor, Low-Fat Cooking series, which won two James Beard Awards. A La Varenne trained cooking teacher, Raichlen runs the popular Cooking in Paridise Cooking School in St. Barts. He is a restaurant correspondent for National Geographic Traveler and a frequent contributor to Food & Wine. He is a columnist for The Los Angeles Times Syndicate and a former restaurant critic for Boston Magazine. He is also the founding editor of Sante, a healthy cooking magazine for physicians. He has appeared numerous times on national television, including The Today Show and Good Morning America as well as CNN and The Discovery Channel. Raichlen lives in Coconut Grove, Florida, with his wife Barbara.

Have not found a bad recipe in all I have tried. By far one of the best Barbeque books in print.

This book has awesome recipes but a lot of them require several ingredients. So if you're looking for recipes with few ingredients, you may want to try a different book. So far though, we have loved all of the recipes we've tried!

I receive the book and it was in good condition. I was satisfied with the book. I thought shipping was slow very slow. Especially when I paid extra for shipping. Other than the time it took to receive. I was fine with the condtion of the book. Also it was exactly what I ordered.

My friends have benefitted from this book. We have not been led astray! I BBQ constantly (usually at least once a week) and everything we have tried in this book has been divine.

I love to cook and have over 20 cookbooks...This one is by far the best. With witty commentary to spice things up on every dish, you learn interesting tidbits as you cook. I especially love that these dishes can be easily adapted to the oven, so do not think this is only your hubby's BBQ book! Finally a Unique Cookbook!!

So far the best thing in the book are the sauces. My personal favorite is the Coke-Cola BBQ sauce which is good on anything. Try it.You can't screw it up!

I have had this book for two weeks now. I have tried 8 different recipes. WOW! The flavors and varities in meals is unbelievable. My favorite so far has been the Rosemary Pork. I am using a Weber Genesis Silver B with the recipes so far. This book is well written with many valuable tips and lessons. Highly recommended to all!!!
