Format: Paperback
This book doesn't promote the idea that saturated fat is bad. It argues that eating three times the daily allotment of saturated fat in one meal is bad. This is an argument against the restaurant industry's ridiculous fat, sodium, calorie, and sugar-laden offerings labeled as "grilled" to fool us into thinking that we are making a healthier menu option. The recipes included illustrate that, just by cooking at home, we can cut down the unhealthy factor significantly. This isn't a fad diet book that promises extreme weight loss by limiting one food group (carbs); it follows the leading nutrition principle of healthy moderation.

I own another book in this series, "Cook This, Not That," and have really enjoyed the recipes in it. When you feel like going out for some fast food, take a look in one of these books, and you will certainly decide to stay in, have a healthier and more economical (and better) meal. The recipe called "The Ultimate Burger" in that book is one I like a lot. So with that background, I came to this one in the same series, "Grill This, Not That." If anything, I like it even better.

There are great recipes for the grill, but there are so many other features that make this book useful and unique. For example, there are comparisons between various store-bought foods and condiments, such as hot dog buns, barbeque sauce, mayonnaise, etc. There are calorie, carb, and sodium comparisons, but the most important comparison is the taste. I find it saves so much time not to have to do these comparisons myself, and it also points out products I may not have tried. The recipes in the book go even farther though: you can make your own barbeque sauce from the recipe in this book easily from ingredients you already have on hand, and it tastes fantastic. I also like the charts that show various cuts of meat and compare their fat and calories.

For each recipe, there is usually a box on the same page that tells how to adapt the sauce or the method in order to use it for vegetables, fish, chicken, etc. That means you are able to learn a method, not just make one recipe. That's a great feature of this series of cookbooks. The strip steaks with blue cheese butter, and the steak-and-potato skewers are two recipes I enjoyed already, and there are many fish and vegetable recipes I intend to try. For anyone who feels in a rut with grilling, this books will definitely expand your horizons.

The recipes in this book are worth the purchase alone, especially with all the great sauce/marinade pages. To top it off, the book goes over some basic grill types, tools and things along those lines.

In addition to all that, it has a great run through of restaurant meals that could kill a horse with the amount of sodium and (usually) calories, not to mention sugars, fat and all the other good stuff. Another nice addition is a grilling buying section that reviews some good options for hot dogs, other grilling meats, marinades and spices.

All in all, a great little book that stands on its own next to my other grilling books.

I LOVE this book. The book has 11 chapters spanning everything from backyard basics to recipes for every meal (even dessert!). I've already made the Carolina Pulled Pork recipe twice. The pork just melts in your mouth. Plus this book taught me that you can barbecue cake (CAKE!). (It's awesome--I'd try it!)

The real selling point is the nutritional information and how the authors always record the calorie information for each recipe.

I'm new to grilling and this book really helped me become a pro at
firing up some delicious meals. The sauces, salsas and dressings are
all easy to make, and delicious alternatives to higher-calorie
store-bought versions. Plus, this book showed me how to grill foods I
would never even think to cook on the grill, like the Grilled Banana
Split - a must-try!

I simply love this book, especially in tandem with "Cook This Not That". The recipes are simple and straightforward, easy to follow, low prep time, and we have yet to be unhappy with any choice. I'd say we've made 8-10 recipes. No clinkers. The recommendations for what groceries to buy are very valuable as well. Although much of the focus is on healthy eating, that's just a very good side effect. For me, the recipes are just plain flavorful.

Only two minor nits. I often use more of everything. It seems like their portions are a bit small for things like sauces or spices. I know to bump them up a bit, which of course probably increases the calorie count. Second point is I watch carbs, and their numbers often omit carb and sugar counts.

So glad I purchased this book! Like the Cook This, Not That! titles, it's marketed as a diet book, but it's really just a great cookbook with delicious recipes that use real ingredients (even butter!)--the low calorie counts are just a bonus. I certainly wouldn't consider myself an expert griller, but this book gives you TONS of advice on what tools to use, what to grill, how to grill, etc. It even shows you how to grill your own pizza! It's a lot of fun to read, and it makes you excited about firing up the grill. The recipes I'm most excited to try out: Grilled-Corn Guacamole and grilled S'Mores. YUM!
