More than just a cookbook!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Wiley's Championship BBQ: Secrets That Old Men Take to the Grave (Hardcover)
As I live in Savannah, Georgia, I have had the pleasure of dining at Wiley's Championship BBQ, which was recently named as #4 in a top ten list of best BBQ joints in the US by Trip Adviser (and #1 in Georgia!!). I am an amateur (although enthusiastic) home cook, and I have a collection of many different kinds of cookbooks. This is the first one that I have purchased in the "BBQ" category, and it stands out among my collection in several other ways. For one, it contains much more than recipes, the owners/writers really shared a piece of their lives and history in the book....I found myself sitting down with it just to read through all the stories that accompanied the recipes. I also appreciated the spiral binding on the book that allowed it to lay flat while I perused the recipes. The book also scores points for appealing to beginners as well as more skilled BBQ'ers- it really provides great instruction for people who are new to the technique as well tips for seasoned veterans. I can tell we will be using this book a lot this summer, as it has everything from chicken, pulled pork, and brisket (my favorite thing to order at the restaurant), not to mention the sides, desserts, and drinks. I plan to order copies for Father's Day for my father, father-in-law, and my brother.
