"Christmas came early this year. The good people at "Southern Living" have published a brand new book called "Ultimate Book of BBQ"... I need to warn you that you may acquire an undeniable urge to eat bbq after thumbing through this book. The illustrations speak thousands of silent words tempting your appetite. I do not like the phrase "Food Porn" but, the images do titillate, seduce, entice and provide plenty of temptation."―MadMeatGenuis.com
"Who could be a more trustworthy source of barbecue knowledge than the editors of Southern Living?

First off the photography in this book is exceptional. Very well presented and makes my mouth water when I look at. So far I have tried 10 different recipes from his book and all have been phenomenal. While my smoking techniques vary a little from Chris's, he has shed some light on quite a few ways to do things I had not thought of before. Also, probably one of the biggest revelations for me was switching over to competition briquettes! The difference is like night and day from any other lump or hardwood charcoal I have ever used.
Bottom line, buy the book if you are a beginner, casual griller or hardcore. Chris knows his stuff, and he should, he has won countless competitions. Everything is easy to follow and ingredients are easy to find. Looking forward to going to Chris's restaurant in Wendell!
It is a fusion of spice, ideas, techniques, and inspiration. It is a book filled with some old secrets of Southern BBQ and adventurous sauces, salsa, and sides for the modern cook.
The Ultimate Book of BBQ is extremely helpful for the average person who doesn’t know all of the cuts of meats and doesn’t feel like they have time to spend in the meat market asking the butcher numerous questions about types of meat, how to cook it, and where to find it. Chris Prieto does a masterful job of explaining all of this; he is a born teacher with a drooling audience. These recipes are exciting and easy. We just needed the explanation so that we could have confidence at the grill! Prieto is an inspiring teacher!
Grilling fish and anything past steak, chicken, and hamburgers didn’t happen in our backyard; we stayed with what we knew how to do. We no longer need to eat out to have delicious, adventurous, and easy seafood, ribs, and roasts. What an inspiration!
One doesn’t have to be a “meat eater” to enjoy this book and the recipes. There are incredible recipes for grilled vegetables and fruit, side dishes, sauces, and salsas! There are even recipes for slow cookers and the stovetop.
Southern Living’s Ultimate Book of BBQ with Pitmaster Christopher Prieto has breathed new life into our kitchen and grill and it has become my “go to” gift - no better gift than good food shared between family and friends!
Christopher gives a great overview of the history of BBQ (if you love BBQ, you are gotta love the history), the differences in BBQ by region, he talks about different ways to prepare the fire, different types of smoking wood, and gives a good overview of different types of meats to smoke. He tells you and shows you (via pictures) how to prepare all different types and cuts of meat. He gives recipes for sauces, rubs, and different ways to use the meat once it is smoked. He gives direction for how to smoke or grill all different types of foods: beef, pork, chicken, turkey, lamb, seafood, and veggies. He even gives recipes for things like skillet cornbread and homemade pickles.
If you are a weekend warrior griller (which most of us are), this book is for you. If you are just getting into cooking on a grill or smoking meat, this book is for you. It would make a great gift for anyone that enjoys these as well. I think you will find it as helpful and as engaging as I have.
