Amazon.com Review

Hot for your Hibachi, warming up for the Weber? Grilling for Dummies is the perfect guide for the home grillmaster. It doesn't matter if you can't tell a briquette from a Rockette or if you just won your third Michelin star cooking on your grill, this book is one of the best guides available. Like all books in the popular Dummies series, Grilling for Dummies is clear, concise, and thorough. Part reference, part cookbook, and part cooking class, no coal is left unturned. The book covers the gamut with 130 recipes, including everything from the basic burger to wild game to fruit (yes, grilled fruit, and it's not bad). There is an excellent section on vegetables and vegetarian fare, and many ideas and recipes are given for low-fat grilling. Different techniques are presented in depth, including barbecue, smoking, marinades, and rubs. Authors Marie Rama and John Mariani cover every step in the grilling process, from lighting the fire to setting the table. Especially good are the technical sections that address ingredients and prep work, covering subjects as diverse as working with chilies or butterflying lamb chops. Rama and Mariani also win the food diplomat's award for deftly avoiding the regional squabbles that define the barbecue world. Lexington, Kansas City, Texas, Ohio, and other styles are touched on without playing favorites. Read the section on ribs, prepare them all, and draw your own battle lines. Unusual for the Dummies series, but welcome, is the section of full-color photographs illustrating what your food should and can look like with a little effort. This is a solid book for anybody interested in becoming a better backyard chef. --Mark O. Howerton

More About the Author

Marie Rama was born into a large Italian family of great cooks. Her maternal grandparents built and operated the only slaughtering house in Westchester County, New York, and raised beef, chickens, pork, lamb and fresh vegetables on a 25 acre farm in Yorktown Heights. Rama learned to make homemade green spinach noodles, an Italian fruit cake Pompepado, jars of Concord grape jam, Easter breads, Bolognese sauce, and other very individual family dishes while working besides her beloved grandmother and aunts in their large and welcoming country kitchen. Food wasn't an afterthought; it was a conduit for bringing the family together and for celebrating all that was good for a generation of poor immigrants who found a home in America.

Marie is the co-author of the best selling cookbooks Cooking Basics for Dummies and Grilling for Dummies, and is very excited about her latest cookbook, Bacon Nation, co-authored with Peter Kaminsky.

She is a recipient of the Westchester Volunteer Center's 2013 Spirit Award for Education and Literacy and a Board Member of Yonkers Partners in Eduction, a non-profit who's mission is to increase post-secondary opportunity for Yonkers public school students. She lives in Yonkers, New York with her husband Mark, a writer.

This book will turn a novice griiler (like me) into a pro (also like me). The recipes included with this title are worth the price. The glossary is very useful as are the tips. You'll laugh, you'll cry (see: Onions). Great book. Good day.

I wish I had a chance to browse this book before I bought it. I was also hoping for some guidance on how long to cook various cuts of meat and so on. While there is a little of that, it's scattered among various recipes and not very useable. Should really be called "Grilling Recipes for Dummies".

I bought this book after reading "Cooking for Dummies" as a second level course in cooking. Since nobody has died after eating my barbecue, I'd say the experiment was a success. From equipment to recipes, this book has something for everyone who wants to experience the adventure of The Grill.

I wanted something to help me learn to use my grill. This was a great choice. I got a copy at the library and liked it so much I bought my own copy. There are great instructions and explanations on using a grill as well as tasty recipes. It is fun to read too as all the "Dummies" books are.
