Format: Paperback
As always, you can count on Karen Adler and Judith Fertig (aka the Barbecue Queens) to remind you not to take cooking so seriously. You can have fun at the grill, and enjoy guests at the same time. The recipes in this latest romp through the back yard will allow you to do both. Some are fresh, some are tried and true, but all are well written, easy to follow and won't have you scanning weird markets to find obscure ingredients for esoteric dishes. In other words, you can find what you need at your neighborhood Kroger or Safeway to serve up dishes from this book, touted as "The Be-All End-All Party Guide, from Barefoot to Black Tie". My only exception to this cookbook is the ladies' advice regarding storing Frozen Margaritas, Frozen Cosmos, and The BBQ Queens' Royal Slush in the freezer. The instructions tell you to thaw them until slushy before serving. Unless Karen and Judith have a sub-sub-zero freezer, these drinks, given their alcohol content, should be pretty much slushy when you take them out. Alcohol simply does not freeze in the home refrigerator freezer. With that said, don't miss this cookbook, it will set your mind for barbecuing all summer long!

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Man TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on June 29, 2008
Format: Paperback
You gotta love the BBQ Queens Karen Adler and Judith Fertig! I first met Karen at the 2007 HPBA Expo in Reno, NV where I interviewed her for my podcast show and then I saw her again earlier this year at the 2008 HPBA Expo in Atlanta, Georgia. In that YouTube video I shot from this year's conference, she told me about this new book that was coming out and now it's here. If you like BBQ (and what low-carber DOESN'T?!), then you will enjoy this very colorful and loaded cookbook. Yes, there are a bunch of recipes (not all low-carb, but all super delicious!), but there are also tips about adding just a little something extra special to whatever party event you are having around the grill. If you wanna BBQ right, then you gotta trust the BBQ Queens. :D

I liked this book and all its menus and ideas so much. It really helped me with my bbq-ing, as well (I use charcoal). I gave five of them for Christmas gifts!!! Wonderful compliments from all!

This is one of the finest party cook books ever done. The reason is that it gives great ideas and then lists alternative choices of ingredients. It makes cooking flexible and fun. Adler and Fertig are wonderful in their presentations but this book is exceptional and full of fresh ideas and approaches to serving a real Bash!
