Love Bobby Flay and this is THE Bobby Flay cookbook to purchase. We've tried at least 10 of the recipes over the past 2 weeks including main entry dishes, side dishes and salads. All are 100% fabulous. Easy to follow. All of them tasty. Truly wonderful! His ingredients are ones you should have in your pantry regardless. Excellent outdoor, user friendly, get on with the grill, book! Thank you, Bobby!!

The recipes are not as difficult as recipes in his Mesa grill and other cookbooks. Tried 2 recipes so far and they were delicious!! Great tips about smoking and grilling too.

Bobby Flay seems to always be on TV, whether one of the several Food Network shows on which he is a regular or a morning appearance on NBC's "Today". So how in the world did he ever find time to author 12 cookbooks? And its not like those books are some thrown-together, glorified pamphlets of recycled info. Flay's books are generally really good. And on top of the TV shows and the books, he also has six restaurants. My guess is the guy is actually a cyborg from the future with infinite energy and the ability to multitask at light speed. Either that or he never sleeps, but that's rather improbable.
Flay's latest book is "Bobby Flay's Barbecue Addiction" ($35, Clarkson Potter, 288 pp.), which he has co-authored with Stephanie Banyas and Sally Jackson (this is the sixth book on which the three have combined). This, like his previous books, is very well done. The recipes are creative but don't call for a list of obscure ingredients. They're present in an easy-to-follow manner and the book is well written. There are 150 recipes and 100 full-color pictures, most of the finished dishes. Just like his TV shows and his restaurants, Bobby Flay's name on anything is literally a guarantee of excellence.
His new book follows a style that I recognize from his others. I did really like the new idea of inserting a chapter on cocktails up front. From there, its chapters on Starters, Salads and Sides; Poultry; Pork; Beef and Lamb; and Fish and Shellfish. He tacks on a chapter on suggested menus at the end and spends the 30 opening pages giving a good rundown on the various types of grills, tips and techniques. If you're a Bobby Flay fan, this book is a must for you. If you're not, this is still a really great book.

If you have a spare few hours and want to make the best food you can imagine, go for this book. I've made many Flay dishes - they are all involved, they all require complex sauces, and they are all great. I smoked trout on my Big Green Egg for the first time and it was fabulous.

Take your time, open a nice wine and have better than a restaurant experience at home.

I gave this book to my boss as he loves to grill like my husband does.Since hubby owns a few of Bobby Flay's books I thought I would get my boss the NEWEST of his books (so we can borrow it later...LOL...just kidding).
Boss loved the book. He liked that there were side dish recipes to go with the grilled meats which is something Bobby has done in his other books. He also liked the sauce/marinade recipes and couldn't wait to try them.
We got this book way before the scheduled delivery date and I was completely impressed with the entire purchase/process.

The perfect gift for my barbecue addicted husband. We have loved creating these masterful recipes for friends and family on summer weekends. A must-have for anyone with a grill who loves to use it.

I am a grill Diva and I just love everything about this book between the pictures, recipes, stories and user friendly instructions, it's a great book, I bought this book for a Xmas gift and loved it so much that I kept it for myself and I'm ordering another for a Xmas gift for my DIL. I love the fact that Bobby's recipes are so healthy and the fact that he cooks clean.

I own every Bobby Flay cook book and cook from them quite frequently. I was excited to get his latest book just in time for grilling weather. It is still an A+ cookbook but you need all the differenet kinds of grilling equipment to use this cookbook. The one recipe we looked at and wanted to make you needed this special smoking box that they roast a pig in. I am pretty sure most of us do not have these at home. I was hoping for at least a foot note saying an alternate way for cooking if you do not own one of these. More pictures would be nice, I was surprised there were not more. His books are usually full of them.

I would only recommend this cook book for a hard core griller that has all the smokers and other types of grills. I am sure all the recipes are amazing and really wish we had the right stuff to try them. I suggest getting a copy of MESA or Grill it... two of our favorites.
