Format: Paperback
This is a cookbook that gives you the basics on ribs -good, solid, simple information on grilling and smoking ribs. There are also some recipes for sides and desserts. The contents include; rib basics, pork ribs, beef and bison ribs, lamb and mutton ribs, sides, desserts. There are a couple pages on resources, metric equivalents and conversions and an index.

This book has the best and simplest directions of any I have found. There are plenty of colour illustrations and the general directions are written clearly, divided into paragraphs with bold headers separating the subjects, so that it is easy to find any information you might need. There are some dos and don'ts not found in other books I have, like the differences in sugars. There is a sense of humor and lightness in here, along with the passion for good ribs.

Recipes are clear and precise, telling you when to season, remove from the refrigerator, when to oil the grate, and place the ribs. Interspersed with this are some items about rib cook-offs.
We have enjoyed many of these recipes, but especially; spotted cow smoked baby back ribs, New England, maple-brined smoked pork rib roast, smoked bourbon-glazed baby back ribs, the tomato bread and Kansas dirt (a dessert that will win you admirers).
This is the rib book to have.

The recipes and the different styles of ribs they talk about are very fun and also very good. However, most of them are very generic and it really doesn't get down and dirty with the preparation of the ribs. I thought a book just about ribs would go into more detail about the trimming, the different cuts, maybe some diagrams about where to make the cuts etc...it just didn't have what I was looking for/needed.

Format: Paperback
These guys are 'IT!' in the world of barbecue. Paul has won hundreds if not a thousand awards for his competition cooking. Ardie has been one of the most important voices of BBQ for over 2 decades. They both have tireless passion for BBQ and it shows in their work. America's Best Ribs has award-winning delicious recipes for lamb, pork, and beef ribs in a lot of different delicious rubs and sauces. They also have the sides to go with them and the Char-Grilled Corn photo and recipe are total eye-candy. I highly recommend anything these guys write!
