300 Big and Bold Barbecue and Grilling Recipes

How to barbecue and grill everything from a steak to an apple.

This superb collection of recipes for the barbecue and grill is not only bold, it shares many grilling secrets from expert chefs. The recipes deliver flavors that will blow away the toughest critic in the family.

Each recipe has tips on how to build that bold flavor before, during and after barbecuing. The authors provide instructions for barbecuing or grilling virtually any food. From planking and rotisserie cooking to barbecuing a whole hog or lamb, from grilling "all piastra" to "alla brace," from stir-grilling to grill-roasting, from grilling foods wrapped in a banana leaf to grilling with a kiss of smoke, and from achieving a "bark" on barbecued pork shoulder to herb grilling, this book reveals all. Bringing a steak to that perfect "black and blue" or any other degree of doneness is easier than ever.

Here is a sampling of the recipes, which yield delectable results every time:

  • Slow-smoked country-style ribs
  • Black and blue beef sirloin served over greens
  • Red-hot grilled wings with cold Maytag blue cheese dipping sauce
  • Lamb souvlaki with grilled pita bread and Greek yogurt sauce
  • Arctic char with grilled lemon halves
  • Planked shrimp with garlic chive butter and ciabatta
  • Prairie-style smoked bison chili
  • Brie and pepper stuffed portobellos
  • Grilled apple rings with cider bourbon cream sauce.
  • A special chapter is devoted to rubs, brines, mops, sops, bastes, glazes, BBQ sauces, slathers, vinaigrettes, pestos, flavored butters and dipping sauces. Also included are charts for every type of food and cooking technique as well as an encyclopedia of ingredients.

    This is the home chef's ultimate book on barbecue and grilling.

    A World of Flavor

    FROM THE TIME our ancestors discovered the power of fire, cooking over an open flame has made us appreciate the taste that sizzle and smoke add to any food. Over time, many regions have developed their own unique barbecue methods:

    • leaf-wrapping and pit barbecue in tropical climates;
    • grilling skewered foods in the Middle and Far East;
    • planking on the east and west coasts of North America;
    • smoking over hardwood in North America, Europe and Africa;
    • grilling over herbs in the Mediterranean;
    • grilling on a spit in tribal cultures worldwide.

    Since the 1950s, when the development of charcoal briquettes made grilling easier, cooking outdoors has made a cultural comeback all over the world. Today, outdoor rooms are designed around the latest in infrared, stainless steel, high-BTU barbecue equipment. At the same time, the simple charcoal kettle grill has never gone out of style, or out of use.

    Whatever type of outdoor barbecue equipment you have, you can produce memorable dishes full of bold flavor from barbecue traditions all over the world.
