First things first after looking through this book I have to say that if a person was an experienced griller, smoker or 'Que guy and that person could only have one book in their house to feed their passion this would be the book I would recommend....I'll say it again this is the most comprehensive grilling cookbook I have ever seen. Rick Browne hits a home run with this effort. I ll never need another grilling cookbook.--Marshall MacFarlene "Skinny Moose ""
