Format: Paperback
I've read and reviewed a lot of books on barbecue. Everything from the books by well-known chefs and TV personalities to the small-press regional titles and everything in between. Mastering Barbecue from Ten Speed Press isn't the biggest, it isn't the prettiest, but it is, simply, one of the best books on barbecue that I have ever read. Many barbecue books will give you the basics on different grill types and methods but Mastering Barbecue goes into great depth on these subjects as well as BBQ terminology, food prep, cleanup and maintenance, cooking times and temperatures, types of wood to use, smoking, and much, much more.

Mastering Barbecue isn't lavishly illustrated with color photographs on slick, glossy paper. This is strictly a no-frills book that goes for punch over pizzazz and succeeds on all counts. The strength of this book lies with its vast selection of recipes for rubs, marinades and sauces. All told there are over 160 recipes for these staples of Barbecue cooking. This is particularly noteworthy as far as the rubs which is the first step in preparing any meat for great barbecue. Most cookbooks may provide just a handful of rub recipes but Mastering Barbecue gives you over 60 culled from a variety of different regions both domestic an abroad. For example you'll find the Simple South Texas Rub, a Phoenix Rub, Kansas City Rub and a Latin American Rub.

Marinades are another item that usually get short-changed in a lot of cookbooks but this book has over 50 great marinades and mop sauces, all designed to add great flavor to your food. Like it hot? Then try the Habanero Hot Sauce marinade. There's also the North Carolina Vinegar mop and the Spicy Beer Marinade.

This book is well done. With very good layout on tips and information, leading to a successful learnig experience for your barbecue and grilling chores in the back yard. Chef Mike, adds loads of recipes.

The book covers everything from tools, tips, cooking times and plenty of information for you increase your knowledge in this cooking art.

Book covers alot of grilling info, not all about smoking, but still a good book.

Hey why do you buy a recipe book. The recipes! This has them... Bunches of them.

Sure sometimes a picture is good to show you how a fancy dish is to be presented, but hey we all know how to present a slab of ribs - right!

Great list of rubs, sauces and short explanations. The only BBQ book you'll ever need. Wish I would have bought this one first. It will be the last bbq recipe book I'll ever need.

I checked this book out from the library for my husband and purchased it a few days later. The book has all the how-to's to learn to smoke meats to perfection. Its wonderful step by step instructions and clever hints have elevated our summer BBQ from hamburgers and hot dogs to great smoked pork and ribs. I highly recommend it.

When I first purchased my smoker grill I found I needed plenty of ideas for seasonings for various types of meat. The price was right, it had good reviews and I found it helpful for my needs.

This is the best BBQ book on the market! No fluff; just tons of receipes and BBQ information. I have a dozen BBQ and grilling books (the more popular titles and authors); this book is the best!! A must have book for any BBQ/griller! Get the lump coal, and kettle grill ready because you'll want to grill everyday!!!
