Review

I m tickled pink that John has written this cookbook. I can t think of anyone
or anything that has made my cooking life easier than John s awesome Masterbuilt
products. This is a man who knows how good food should taste and how it s
best prepared. --Paula Deen

About the Author

John McLemore, a southerner through-and-through, was born an entrepreneur and accidentally became
a cook. While testing cooking products designed by Masterbuilt, his family business, John, and his
brother Don, realized they had created a simple style of cooking recipes that are normally considered
difficult. In writing this book, they are sharing these recipes with you.

More About the Author

John McLemore is the co-owner and President/CEO of Masterbuilt Manufacturing, Inc. Masterbuilt manufactures indoor and outdoor consumer cooking products and automotive aftermarket accessories.

John's passion for product sales began at the ripe old age of 8. He would load up his Red Ryder wagon with the plant stands his father made and cart them around the neighborhood, selling his wares door-to-door. This passion has carried through his entire life. Once he turned 16 and was able to drive, he took on a more formal role in sales with his father's company. His first truck took over for the red wagon and his neighborhood route expanded throughout the southeast. When he was 19, John and his brother Don became part-owners with their father. John built a sales force for the company and expanded the brand nationwide. In 1998, John and Don became sole-owners of Masterbuilt. Since then, the brand has gone worldwide and they have established a reputation as innovators in the cooking products industry.

As a leader in the industry, John is not afraid to take risks and keep pushing himself harder. With faith in God and a lot of hard work, he continues to face challenges without fear. He has traveled the world over and learned a lot of lessons about life, and food, along the way. Everywhere he goes, he has requests for recipes, tips and secrets for his meals. Always a solution-maker, he knew it was time to share his family story and recipes in a cookbook. "Dadgum, That's Good!" is much more than just a Southern phrase and the title of his cookbook, it's the summation of a life's work in creating delicious food with world-class cooking products.

John is a pilot, little league coach, fun-loving storyteller and a practical joker. He is a CEO with a heart, and is energized by the success of others. Of all his adventures, the most exciting has been his marriage to Tonya. They have three children; Brooke, John and Bailey. They are an active family and love to spend time outdoors - softball, tennis, water sports, 4-wheeling.

John's life is a true American success story, ripe with blessings and challenges. Through a serious on-the-job injury at age 13, two fires at Masterbuilt and many other blips along the way, he always took on life with a positive outlook and an assurance of his purpose. "Dadgum, That's Good" shares John's journey and opens the door to another chapter.

I love this book!I love the recipes and photos! I have made the smoked prime rib (to die for), mediterranean pepper salad and the salmon chowder (I cheated and used store bought smoked salmon). I'm not an experienced cook, but these recipes made me a hero. I'll be giving this book as gifts for sure.

This is a very good companion to the Masterbuilt Turkey Fryer (plus boiler and steamer of stuff). Very detailed "how-to" suggestions for frying, boiling, and steaming ... plus some additional Dadgum good recipes for smoking chicken, Boston butt pork, and such. Recommended for a good read and good cooking. The only problem is to let guests see the book ... they'll start hinting for an invitation back when I try "such and such" from the book. But that's really a good thing.

I have been cooking for a long time and there are two things I look for when shopping for a new cookbook, easy to follow recipes and pictures of what the finished recipe should look like. The recipes in this book are very easy to follow and the pictures make me hungry just looking at them. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to cook.

Love this book. High quality. Fantastic pics of each recipe. Simple ingredients. Worst thing about the book - having to decide which recipe to try next!!

I bought this book for SMOKER recipes (since that's the way it was advertised). The book only has about 1/4 recipes for smoked foods, because most of the book is full of ELECTRIC DEEP FRYER, GRILL and BOIL recipes, for which appliances I don't have. If I wanted so few smoker recipes, I could have simply gone online and printed them off myself for FREE! The photographs are also very poor quality.

I bought this cookbook for my husband to go along with his MasterBuilt smoker Christmas present. His first use of the smoker was Prime Rib and the Macaroni and Cheese from this recipe book. It was outstanding and everyone loved it. Next on the agenda for the smoker will be the pork butt, baked beans and stuffed cabbage. I also will be looking forward to trying some of the recipes for the "turkey" fryer and the grill. This is a great outdoor cooking recipe book!
