Editorial Reviews

Review

From the "LIBRARY JOURNAL"  Devon explains the basics of equipment and has impressive, easy-to-follow recipes designed to coax the most flavor from meat, seafood, and vegetable dishes.   VERDICT: This excellent cookbook should not be overlooked.
 
From the "PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY" The versatility of wood pellet grills make them an attractive option for barbeque and grilling in an appliance that allows more control over temperature and flavor.  He suggests woods and even wine pairings.  Devon's guide is  great for pellet grilling and outdoor cookery.

About the Author

Bob Devon has had a lifelong love affair with food and wine. For more than thirty years, while serving his country—-first, in the United States Navy, and then, in the Department of Defense—he managed to learn as much as he could from his ships’ cooks, and barbequed as a way to relax. Once retired, Devon followed another love by becoming the manager of a tasting room in a California winery. Throughout his varied careers, he has nurtured his passion for cooking, especially his skills on the grill. He and his wife continue to entertain and barbeque for friends and family at their home in Southern California.

More About the Author

Originally from Denver CO, Bob Devon grew up with a love of baseball and a passion for cooking. Facinated with the culinary artistry of his mother and grandmothers, he furthered his knowledge by attending cooking classes in high school. After graduation, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy and was assigned to duty aboard a Navy destroyer. Subsequent deployments to Europe enhanced his knowledge as he experienced the world of food and wine in regions around the Mediterranean Sea. His barbequing experiences span nearly 35 years and include early charcoal and propane gas units to built-in gas grills. Things changed when he discovered the versitility of the wood pellet grills where he found his niche. His dishes reflect experiences from family and life with the added influences of wood smoke. Bob and his wife Cheryl continue to entertain and share their gourmet food creations with friends and family from their home in southern California. They also delight families and children of all ages throughout the year as "Santa and Mrs. Claus".

I've been grilling for many years, but just recently I decided to up my game, and bought a Traeger (Lil Tex). I'm completely new at using such a beast, so I've been reading all I can on the subject and even attended a little one day "bbq school" nearby. At this point I have a pretty good sized stack of BBQ books, but for where I'm at in terms of BBQ knowledge, and in particular slow cooking with a pellet grill, this is now my go-to book. Why?

1. Other BBQ books are either grilling books in disguise, or assume that you are using some ancient sort of charcoal or non-pellet wood burning technique. So when they give you cooking advice and notes, I have to take everything that they say with a grain of salt, which makes something that is already complex and challenging, even more so.

2. The book contains a lot of really useful reference material. And other reviewers saying that you could obtain this information elsewhere is besides the point (that's really true of all information is it not?). The great thing is that I can lug this book around, and look up information like what types of pellets go with what sorts of meat. What are the internal temperatures for each given meat type that I should be looking for that correspond to the "done-ness" of the meat (well, medium, rare etc.)

3. There are recipes for making several different kinds of rubs and sauces, and just as importantly there is detailed discussion about how to use these.

4. This isn't a book with a huge number of recipes, like maybe a half dozen or so for each type of meat, plus a few sides and deserts. But the thing I really like is that the instructions are pretty detailed. For example, the first instruction is always what temperature setting to use on your pellet smoker.

I did not find this book very helpful. It seemed more like a cookbook put together for friends and family as opposed to others that are available. Some folks may prefer that, but it wasn't what I was looking for.

The chapter titled The Basics of Wood Pellet Grill Cooking gave me the same information that came with my Traeger grill and is available on any number websites.

A lot of the recipes are really more indirect grilling recipes than smoker recipes as indicated by the cooking temperatures at least from my perspective. There are not that many recipes in the book

The wine guide pages will be informative, in my opinion, if your wine drinking experiences are somewhat limited.

Overall I didn't think there was a lot here even considering the low price. There are 12 folks who gave it five stars so I guess it depends what you are looking for.

If you are new to BBQ smoking in my opinion there is no one book you can buy. Everyone that writes one has a point of view. What I have found is you really need a core of three books I have found helpful and then possibly two more. Also there is a lot on the web, but there is one site I have found particularly helpful.

Here is my take:
Once you understand temperature in relation to smoke and timing you can translate any indirect recipe to a pellet grill or any other type of smoker. There are some tricks/tips that will enhance the cooking, but in the end it all comes down to temperature and time.

Here are the books that I have found most helpful in descending order. I would invest in all five if you are serious about this. I look at two things; technical information and recipes.

Slow Fire by Ray "DR. BBQ" Lampe - Excellent from a technical standpoint.

This book is packed full of information to educate you on the proper use of your pellet BBQ. We are beginners and were disappointed that the manufacturer of our pellet BBQ only had a pamphlet that had very basic instructions and a few recipes. We searched on the manufacturer website and forum but still didn't get much information. We are delighted to have found The complete wood pellet barbeque cookbook as it is so complete I would be surprised we need another one to teach us the ins and outs of a pellet BBQ.

While I've done very few recipes as they are written, this book has a lot of great information for anyone with a pellet grill. While the information seems to be written for a traeger grill, the information can be applied to any wood pellet grill. Covering everything from appetizers to desserts, if all you've ever done on your grill is, well grill, then this book will open your eyes to many other possibilities.
