Wicked good book,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Wicked Good Barbecue: Fearless Recipes from Two Damn Yankees Who Have Won the Biggest, Baddest BBQ Competition in the World (Flexibound)
Highly recommended. I am a competition cook myself, and my team competes against iQue on a regular basis. These guys know their stuff. The book is also very clear and accessible, covering complex recipes in depth. If you want to know how the pros cook, this is the book to get. You should be warned though: these are professional recipes for best-in-class food, not quick snacks you can toss on the grill. There is a chapter on over-the-top recipes, including one dish that will take a week to prepare. It will be worth your time and effort though, whether you want to compete or just amaze your friends.
A lot of ingredients used in competition cooking cannot be found at the supermarket, and it's great that the authors included a guide on where to find key ingredients and tools.
