From the Author

A Special Message From Famous Dave...

If you want everyone to leave your party, saying..."WOW what a fun party! We've never had so much fun and the food rocked the house!!! ...I am just dying to get my hands on a few of those recipes--they were so delish!" Then you're going to absolutely love my new Barbecue Party Cookbook!

Most folks may be interested to know that my restaurants got their start from my rockin' & rollin' backyard BBQ parties. Before I ever opened up my first restaurant, I would invite my friends over for an old-fashioned backyard barbeque and would feed them new recipes that I was working on. I WOW'd them with my appetizers, my grilled and smoked meats, and fresh-from-the-oven desserts... and they would say, "Dave you just absolutely have to open up your own restaurant! Your cooking is amazing and the flavors are so robust... your restaurant is going to be a sure winner!"

Today, Famous Dave's is one of the fastest-growing barbeque restaurant companies in America, including winning over 700 Best of Class awards... more than any other restaurant in America, including the renowned restaurants in New York City or the famed celebrity chef restaurants in Las Vegas. You know what they say, "It ain't braggin' if it's the truth!" To say BBQ parties have made me who I am today, would be a huge understatement. In fact, I am proud to say, Nation's Restaurant News has declared Famous Dave's as one of "America's Hot Concepts!"

Throughout the years, many people have stopped me in my restaurant asking me for my barbecue secrets. So, by popular demand, I am sharing my best recipes that you can have fun serving to your family and friends at your next party, pignic, tailgate, or neighborhood shindig. Here's the most important thing about this cookbook...it is not just a book of recipes. Hopefully the process you go through to make these recipes will transform how you think about cooking in general. This cookbook is all about extracting the purest flavors out of each ingredient and then carefully "stacking flavors" to create the best tasting food possible. I know you're going to love my recipes, so... throw a party, have fun, and enjoy!

"May you always be surrounded by good friends and great barbeque!"

Rib-O-Liciously Yours,

"Famous Dave" Anderson, Founder
Famous Dave's of America, Inc.
The World's Best BBQ Joint and America's Best Tasting Ribs!

I thought Dave's new book was fantastic! I actually bought this book at a Famous Dave's where he happened to be signing! Not only is he a very nice man, but he took the time to sit with me and give me advice on recipes and BBQ do's and don'ts. He told me about several products he uses to make his rubs and sauces that may be brand name but, they readily available anywhere and none where his line of products.

It's a fun book if you are planning an party! I know I will be using it a lot!

I am not an expert griller and I found fantastic tips on how to BBQ. I also love the party tips, Famous Dave shares easy party tips on how to make your bbq party look like you hired a decorator. Fast, easy, no brainer.

As an old time BBQ cooker and a retired competitive cook, I enjoy fine cookbooks and have a few hundred. Trying to find one book that I would give a new comer to BBQing or to a family that wants to do a little more than just turn out smoked meat, this is the book. It is as beautiful and it is informative. This book is packed with information that most books do not have. It gives product names and talks about "stacking flavors" that is so important in good food. I always called it "layering flavors" but I like Dave's description better. You need good clean taste of rich flavors and they should not be blended all together--you stack them and that creates the taste sensation.

Everyone has their favorite meats to cook and serve and be famous for presenting something special. My reputation is with Briskets and Turkeys. But once it is smoke roasted---where does the party began? Dave gives you lots of ideas and suggestions and new ways to serve your own famous BBQ food.

The vast majority of outdoor BBQ cooking families will find this to be one of the very best books they can own. I really thought there was little more to say about BBQ in a book, but Dave proved me wrong. I have two outdoor kitchens and several smokers and grills. I cook all year and I live in Wyoming at 7,250 feet elevation. Dave brings food and fun together in the best BBQ book I now own--and I thought I had them all.

Who doesn't love BBQ? You need to check out this book as I absolutely fell in love with it at the library and knew I had to have a copy. It has everything in it. I'm thinking the SW Creamy Mac & Cheese sounds fabulous but lets keep going. We have beverages (Blackberry Shine, Watermelon Punch, Cherry Mojito, Sweet Stinger and I could go on as there are a lot more), desserts (old fashioned banana pudding, rum cake, fruit kabobs, cheesecake minis, etc.) and now let's talk sides (salsas, dips, pasta salad, sweet potato fries, baby red stuffers, etc.). Are you getting hungry yet? Its time for the main dish......let's talk chicken: chicken sandwiches, chicken tacos, chicken seasonings, BBQ chicken, chicken wings, chicken wraps, chicken chili - move over chicken, it's time for the beef and pork: pork nachos, pulled pork, smoked pork, pork loin, pork chops, beef fajitas, burgers, meatballs, steak. That's just some of the recipes that's inside this book. The recipes are not hard and the ingredients are not difficult to find - things that are found in most stores. Lots of pictures too, which I liked. I know I got you and I haven't even mentioned all the recipes for BBQ, buffalo, bacon, fish, pizza, marinades and sauces. Whatcha wating for? Buy the book.

I have tons of bbq books and I have other party type books but this one is my favorite. Great for super Bowl party's,4th of July party's,memorial and Labor day cook outs.Update A year later and I am still using this book and still love it. I am a simpleton and don't like to many ingrediendts and recipes that take to long or are complicated and I don't feel this book is either of that. Just a great book.

Great recipes . We had dinner at Dave in Omaha, Nebraska. We had never heard of the restaurant before and were on our way to
Yellow Stone Park. We loved it !!! We now try to eat at Dave's every chance we get. The problem is there are no Dave's restaurants near us the only one close is about 60 miles away. At least we can now attempt to cook our own. It wont be as good but we can try..

This book is beautiful and has great pictures and fantastic recipes, this is one of my favorite books to grab and page thru for new ideas. The innovative recipes and the color photos, the formatting of the print and layout of the presentation make the book one of my top selections. A must have for anybody that loves to have BBQ and loves to party.
