Praise for Ray Lampe
"Dr. BBQ is the premier barbecue teacher in the country today. He is helping to keep the grand old tradition of barbecue alive and well." ---Fast Eddy Maurin, Fast Eddy's/Cookshack
"Those of us who have made a study of barbecue know that Ray Lampe does, indeed, know jack about barbecue. . . . I appreciate his respect for the craft, its history, its traditions, and its practitioners. He's an original, colorful, sometimes abrasive and prickly character who contributes much to the image of barbecue. If he didn't exist we'd have to invent him."
---Doug Worgul, Writer-Editor, Kansas City Star, and author of The Grand Barbecue

I've sampled a handfull of these recipes so far and here are some of my favorites: Smoked Turkey legs...they have a Renaissance Festival here every late Summer in Michigan and my favorite thing to eat is the giant, grilled, smoked turkey legs. I don't even like dark meat normally but these are delicious and with this recipe I can make them at home.
I like the rib recipes but my favorite was the backyard championship Ribs. Perfectly designed no matter what type of grill you are using. Boneless chicken is a staple in our home and the salsa grilled chicken breasts were also a big hit.
This book has quickly moved to the top of my list of favorites!
Ray does not bore you with irrelevant fluff but instead devotes the whole book to simple and easy to follow bbq recipes.
Plus he is a real cook ..not just someone writing about it. This is an excellent book for someone who wants to start cooking authentic bbq as well as experienced bbq cooks who want to experiment with different methods. Highly recommended!

I don't dislike this book but I don't love it either. It's too much Dr BBQ. If you have to make a choice of only two or three books on outdoor cooking, I suggest you forgo this one. Pick up Steven Raichlen's "How To Grill", "BBQ USA" and/or "The Barbeque Bible". All are less about the author and more about the barbeque. Also recommended, Smoky Hale's "The Great American Barbecue & Grilling Manual" and Jamie Purviance and Sandra S. McRae's "Weber's Big Book of Grilling". All these books are "A" list.
