Format: Hardcover
In considering this book, you should certainly be aware that grilling and barbecue are two different methods of cooking, at least as different as braising and roasting, even though the methods share similar equipment and are typically done outdoors. That means there is very little overlap between the recipes in this book and the Jamison's important barbecue book `Smoke & Spice'. Unlike barbecue, which requires smoke and which is almost always done outside, grilling wishes to avoid smoke, is done on high heat, and can be done fairly competently indoors on a grill pan, as it has a lot more in common with saute than it does with barbecue.
The Jamison's first chapter is one of the best introductions to a cooking method I have seen anywhere. And, you probably need it, as the mind set surrounding grilling, especially outdoors, is not friendly to serious cooking. The lessons may be summarized in the observation that grilling IS cooking on high heat, which is done to impart a unique taste, and this activity requires your full attention.
Chicken is a very popular subject for treatment in a dedicated book; even a book dedicated to a single cooking technique. This is because chicken is cheap, it has some challenging variety (white versus dark versus skin on versus skin off versus young bird versus old bird), it is somewhat bland so it is an excellent medium for enhancing with flavors, and it has been cooked around the world, so every one of the world's great cuisines has a wealth of chicken recipes and flavorings which can be translated to the grill. Even the homegrown American cuisine has contributed major chicken dishes such as fried chicken, barbecued chicken, and Buffalo chicken wings.
The first chapter of recipes owes much to the worlds oldest cuisines and cooking methods.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love to grill, and I am always looking for good books and collections of recipes that will add to my knowledge. When I looked for a book that dealt specifically with chicken, this one caught my eye and I ordered a copy. It has proven to be a valuable asset.

As I write this there is only one other review of this book and it's rather comprehensive. Rather than go through the book formatting, chapter breakdown and what have you (and repeating the other review), I'll hit on why this book works and what makes it worth the purchase.

The book starts off with an excellent discussion of HOW to cook chicken on the grill and why so many of us fail when we try. It is not enough to simply say, "do it this way", so the authors include the "this is why you should do it this way" along with the discussion. The authors worked very hard to impart understanding instead of only straight method, and they have succeeded. The results, when following their guidance, is perfectly grilled chicken that is neither burnt nor undercooked.

The various chapters go into different recipes for the different parts to grill; that is, there is a section on bone-in pieces, boneless chicken breasts, thighs and wings, etc. Everything is ordered logically and is easy to find without too much effort. Also, the full-color pictures add a lot to the overall presentation and make the book fun to browse through.

I always appreciate it when authors write on my level. So many write as if they are addressing children or mensa members. The authors have an approachable writing style that makes their book enjoyable for the average adult.

I like this book and I have gotten much better at grilling chicken as a result. The recipe collection is good, the knowledge shared is invaluable, and the book makes a good read to boot. If you are wanting a good book on grilling chicken, seriously consider this one.
