Finally half way through you get to the actual recipes for rubs and marinades, that lasts only a couple of chapters. Then it switches to many more chapters about salsas, relishes and then recipes for entrees and sides such as potatoes, baked beans, macaroni salad, stuffed dates, mac n cheese and the list goes on and on.
It's a great cookbook if you want all those things but if you're depending on the title alone it will lead you astray.
The Alabama White Sauce was delish and we used it on chicken (not the suggested ribs). The Kansas City sauce and the Carolina sauce were right on.
While searching for a book I came across books written by pit masters. I'm sure they're all wonderful books but I don't want to be a pit master and I don't want to go out and buy most of the ingredients that they say are essential. I just wanted to jazz up my BBQ dishes a bit. I doubt that I'll win a BBQ competition if I follow this book but that's fine.
The book is well organized and it's an easy read. The author gives very good tips and encourages you to experiment a bit. It's written in the usual casual style as Dummies books with some light humor sprinkled in to keep it interesting.
I've tried more than a few of the recipes and I, and my family, thoroughly enjoyed most of them. A few were so-so but it's a matter of taste.
For the average backyard BBQer, I recommend this book.
I only gave it 4 stars because I think they could have took it a little further with the info, but it is a basics book so I really recommend it if you are looking to go beyond just burning burgers, dogs, and ribs on a grill.
It is full of information that would be useful to a beginner and I recommend it.
I have noticed that there are many sites on the internet you can access for free that also has good information.
Don't be fooled by the name. This book will give ideas to anyone from "Dummies" to the seasoned BBQ professional.
