From the Back Cover

The definitive grilling guide from America's original charcoal brand

Fire up the grill and experience the sizzle of meat, the smell of the smoke, the flavor of the food, and the appreciation of your guests. Grilling is a summertime ritual and an all-American tradition. It's fun family barbecues, holiday cookouts, weeknight suppers, weekend picnics, and tailgating.

Beginning with basics such as how to start the fire, this grilling guide from Kingsford, the company that fuels the fires, gets you grilling and helps you perfect your grill skills with:

  • More than 125 recipes, including traditional grilling fare, new takes on old favorites, and great new dishes
  • Great ideas for sauces and rubs, appetizers and snacks, beef, lamb, pork, poultry, seafood, vegetables, and desserts, plus the top 12 cookout side dishes
  • The lowdown on different cooking methods—direct, indirect, banked, and pocket
  • Dishes ranging from classics like Lone Star Beef Brisket and Backyard Barbecued Ribs to creative new grill greats such as Prime Rib with Pepper-Mustard Rub, Beer-Brined Pork Chops, Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches, and Apple Cider–Brined Grilled Turkey

Spiced up with tips and hints and full of straight-forward grilling advice, color photos, and mouthwatering recipes, this is an indispensable cookbook for every charcoal griller.

This book is perfect for those of us who know that charcoal grilling is the only way to grill. While there are many other fine grilling cookbooks available, this is the first one branded by Kingsford, the only name in charcoal.

This book differs from other grilling cookbooks in the respect that all of it's recicpies were specifically tested on a charcoal grill, and they are all designed specifically for the charcoal grilling technique. This is important because there are subtle differences between charcoal grilling and gas grilling techniques that can make a big difference in how your food acutally comes out.

It's first chapter offers some simple and essential methods for creating the perfect fire for any recipie in the book. I consider myself to be a veteran charcoal griller and I still found this chapter useful. I specfically learned more about temperature ranges and the banked and pocket grilling methods.

The "Chicken [..] With Wild Mushroom Stuffing" were an instant hit with me. I can't wait to try the "Apple Cider-Brined Grilled Turkey" next Thanksgiving!

Good book, lots of pics, easy to follow, designed for charcoal (it's from Kingsford, duh!).

Update: I've bought a lot of grilling books, and this one is the best. I would move to 5 stars if I could.

I got this book for my husband for Father's Day and he LOVED it. I had recently purchased him a charcoal grill and this book complimented it perfectly! It has info on using a charcoal grill along with fabulous recipes. It even has a grilled dessert section! It has sauces, meats, veggies - some recipes are very basic while there are some new ones to try that aren't too outlandish. If you have a charcoal grill and want some good food, you want this book!

My husband and I found quite a few really good recipes in this Grilling cookbook. We also liked that it had a section that gives a lot of tips on how to grill properly as that is what we are really interested in. The best of both worlds......we recommend this book!
