Editorial Reviews

Review

“You just want to grill a better steak than the one you grilled last summer, or smoke a better brisket, or fire up a basket of vegetables that will leave your guests swooning. You don’t want to feel as if doing any of that is going to be a campaign. You’re not looking to go pro. If so, Joe Carroll’s Feeding the Fire, written with Nick Fauchald, may be the most useful book of the current season. A collection of strategies and lessons as much as one of recipes and pronouncements, the book offers a helpful primer to those seeking guidance on an elementary question that bedevils many: how to use a grill or a smoker to their best effect under varying circumstances, all summer long. . . . The recipes [in Feeding the Fire] are written for home cooks. They are uncomplicated and clear. They can be attempted on dodgy old kettle grills and leaky gas ones alike. Most important, they work. . . . Bonkers delicious.”
The New York Times
 
“Joe Carroll . . . speaks the language of every home cook.”
USA Today, “Summer’s Tastiest Titles”

“How to barbecue no matter what your equipment. . . . Packs big, bold flavor.”
Associated Press
 
“This book takes all the guesswork out of cooking with a grill.”
House Beautiful
 
“This cookbook is a master class in minimal and well-prepared barbecue.”
Library Journal

“With Carroll’s 20 in-depth lessons, high quality meat, fish or vegetables and the right choice of wood, anyone can achieve barbecue nirvana.”
BookPage, “Our Favorite Cookbooks of the Year”

“If you’re going to tackle the flames, you’re going to need some sound, time-tested advice, and that’s what Carroll gifts this world in this stunning book.”
FoodRepublic

“For those who are serious about stepping up their barbecue and grilling game.”
Publishers Weekly, Top 10 Cookbooks for Spring 2015
 
“Whether it’s redefining the chophouse at St. Anselm or tearing down the historic North/South barbecued brisket wall at Fette Sau, no one else does what Joe Carroll does with fire and smoke. I read this book fast and got so hungry I wanted to eat its pages.”
—John Hodgman, author, actor, and humorist

“Joe Carroll shares 20 very important lessons every grill master should know; Feeding the Fire is a must-buy for your cookbook collection.”
—Adam Perry Lang, chef, restaurateur, and author of Serious Barbecue, BBQ 25, and Charred & Scruffed

“Using Fette Sau’s dry rub and a nice low fire, I could probably eat this book . . . and come back for seconds.”
—Peter Kaminsky, author of Pig Perfect

“If smoked meats and smooth-sipping whiskey are your religion, Feeding the Fire is your prayer book. Come worship at the altar of smoke and fire with Brooklyn’s high priest of barbecue, Joe Carroll.”
—Steven Raichlen, author of the Barbecue! Bible book series

“Managing fire is the key to good barbecue, and Joe Carroll is the master. The best books inspire you to start cooking right now, and this is one of them. Feeding the Fire is essential reading for anyone who likes to play with fire.”
—Mike Mills and Amy Mills, 17th Street Barbecue

About the Author

Born and raised in northern New Jersey, Joe Carroll didn’t grow up steeped in Southern barbecue culture. With a curious nature and a love of food, Carroll launched barbecue joint Fette Sau in Brooklyn in 2007, luring in equal parts hipsters and barbecue devotees. With his beer garden, Spuyten Duyvil, and his casual American steakhouse, St. Anselm, in Brooklyn, Carroll continues to expand, opening Fette Sau in Philadelphia (in 2012) and another steakhouse in Manhattan (coming soon). Carroll; his wife, Kim; and their twin daughter and son live in Brooklyn, New York.

We're a big charcoal grill cooking family. Bought this book for my son in law for Father's Day; he loved it. Not just a cookbook; also tells the story of the author, his family and the his restraunts. Bought another copy for my husband.

This book is full of insight and practical knowledge for even the novice barbecue folks. It has interesting - and useful - chapters on meat, fire, smoking and more. Well worth it, even if you never barbecue at all!

My family has loved the offerings from Fette Sau in Brooklyn, but we are only there for a few months of the year. With the book we're able to prepare some of our faves elsewhere, Yay!

Filled with intereting ideas for novice and grillmaster cooks.
Unpretentious approach to outdoor cooking and its joys.
Along with the Thrill of the Grill, it may become a classic.

Great recipes are in this book. Of course, not everything is appealing (or possible where I live) but what cookbook is? Looking forward to trying many of these offerings!

I read it in a day but that doesn't mean it's not good. Some very good tips if moving from gas to charcoal. Excellent dishes for meat, fish and veg. Would highly recommend

Very informative meat recipes and where each cut comes from on the animal. Also has a few sections on spirits to go with the meats. Would highly recommend it.
