Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this slim, attractive volume, outdoor cooking enthusiast Davis (America's Best BBQ) presents a varied take on the art of cooking over direct heat. Each of 25 techniques is paired with a recipe that best illustrates its merits, an approach that should raise eyebrows even among veteran grillers. While the bulk of Davis' techniques and recipes are simple (chicken grilled under a brick, burgers, roasted peppers), Davis is hardly timid; grillmasters will need a degree of trust and fortitude for Davis's Dirty Steak, in which inch-thick steaks are placed directly on the coals, and few will want to babysit Rendezvous-Style Baby Back Ribs for 45 minutes, turning them every five. As a tour of techniques, the book's variety will likely impress vets, and novices should gain some confidence with a variety of skills. Ultimately, though, Davis's guide to backyard cooking makes a better side than a main course.

Format: Spiral-bound
25 Essentials is a lovely little book, with lovely balance of text and white space on each page. It is nicely bound in a lay-flat spiral design; it has slick paper, stylish illustrations, but it is a little lacking on amount of actual information included in the book. If you want an overview of techniques, without a lot of expertise required, then this is the book for you. If you want a good basic book on grilling with lots of info, then I would look elsewhere.
