Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

After picking up a few tricks for 2007's Barbecue Nation, Thompson presents another volume aimed at backyard cooks ready to sweat a little for their meal. Few arcane ingredients or lengthy preparations are called for; Thompson's cornbread requires only six ingredients, his New York Strip just five. Geared for gas, many of Thompson's dishes require little grilling time, and are in general an easy transfer to charcoal. While it's easy to throw some wood chips on a charcoal fire to add smokiness, Thompson offers a handful of easy gas grill work-arounds that diners will never suspect are substitutes. The recipe deck is stacked with favorites like burgers (including lamb, salmon and tuna variations), steaks and sides like baked beans, cole slaw and potato salad, making this ideal for cooks still in their honeymoon stage with the new grill. More adventurous palates should enjoy flavorful riffs on North African Grilled Shrimp (topped with a burst of lemon and crunchy pine nuts) and Cornish game hens, which get a lift from a blueberry, garlic, thyme and vinegar marinade. Finished with sound advice on everything from buying a grill to choosing the right cut of steak, Thompson's book should prove as useful as an extra set of tongs.

Review

"A comprehensive guide to grilling like a professional. Fred's extensive wealth of culinary knowledge radiates throughout this book with superb recipes and tips for cooks of every level." -- Kenny Callaghan, Executive Chef/Partner, Blue Smoke Restaurant “Quicker, cleaner, ‘greener,’ safer, more versatile and reliable than charcoal, grilling with gas is clearly the way to go. And with Fred Thompson to guide you all the way -- from choosing the gas grill that's best for you, to stocking your pantry, to getting set, to grilling everything from steak and spareribs to chicken and duck to salmon, sardines, sea scallops, and more -- you can't go wrong. Thompson's the voice of authority. His GRILLIN' WITH GAS, a new user-friendly manual-cum-cookbook, a global collection 200 recipes strong, proves the point. So grab a copy and fire up the grill.” -- Jean Anderson, author, A Love Affair with Southern Cooking “Fred's Top Ten Keys to Successful Gas Grilling are worth the price of the book alone. I never knew I should always grill with the lid down. Now I do, and my grilling is better for it!” --Tori Ritchie, TV Host, www.tuesdayrecipe.com

Format: Paperback
I know, I know, many backyard grilling enthusiasts state that gas is gas and wood and charcoal are better but let the statistics speak for themselves - 17 million grills were purchased in 2008 and 70% of grills sold use gas. With that being said many cookbooks walk a fine line between gas and charcoal and confuse the average griller with all sorts of techniques, tricks and extras.

Out of the fire pits comes Fred Thompson's newest work and by far a very thorough and well put together piece of work. 305 pages of tips, recipes, pictures and advice fill the pages and take you on a journey down a river of BBQ delights!

One such recipe "Southern Tender" is a mouthwatering, lip-smacking recipe that goes wonderful with heaping side of Southwestern Rice Pilaf, grilled Wasabi Buttered Corn and a nice cool glass of tart Lemonade spiked by Mr Daniels if you prefer. The Pork is flavorful with hints of cinnamon, currants and garlic. I may even try substituting some ground cinnamon next time with garam masala for a more Indian style kick. On a more interesting the "Cauliflower Steaks" recipe is by far a wonderfully colorful recipe that many might simply glance over. Grilling brings out the flavor and topping it with the Shell Beans Vinaigrette is simply wonderful. The only trick is in slicing the cauliflower into steaks. I'd suggest getting a really sharp 10 inch chef's knife to complete the task.

With each wonderful recipe clearly presented you will most certainly keep your grill fired up year round. So keep the leaves at bay in the fall and plow a path to the grill in the winter, your family and guests will love you even more when you keep the gas burning year round!

We have made 5 or 6 recipes from this book so far and each one of them has been better than the next. The sauces are fantastic and because it's for gas grills, the instructions are very detailed as to how many burners to light, etc. We find this particularly helpful. My husband said the ribs we made from one of the recipes were the best he'd ever had!

From shopping for the right gas grill and considering different features to recipes for over a hundred great grilling productions, GRILLIN' WITH GAS comes from a food writer who offers expertise in the subject. From BBQ Spareribs with Apple Cider to Curried Chicken with Mango-Curry Chutney, this comes packed with color photos and is a real winner for any general lending library.

I really like the book, It has plenty of recipes and gives a lot of info on what to have on hand to do your grilling. I sent one to my son for his birthday and now he is becoming the grill master of his house.

Purchased this book for my husband to go with his new gas grill. Have to say that the recipes we've tried so far are rather bland....We keep returning to our battered old BBQ book, by Better Homes & Gardens ironically called The New Grilling Book!!!
Much tastier recipes, but I will update this review if we find a winner!

I'm new to gas grilling and this book has been so extremely helpful! My first grill tasted like I'd been doing this forever. The tips and techniques are fantastic. I can't even say enough about the recipes! The ones that I've tried have been so-o-o good! There are recipes for so many different types of food. You only need one really great guide for gas grilling - and I think I've found it!
