Format: Paperback
The title of this cookbook would lead you to believe it's all about sauces, rubs and marinades but the first 6 chapters are about smoking, pits, gathering the "right" equipment, pantry stocking, history of BBQ, how to mix marinades, competitions, and there's more than you'll ever want to know about smokers, smoking, setting up your equipment, etc.
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.

My wife bought this book for my birthday, along with a smoker. I've been making real barbecue for a few months now, and this book has been the key to my success. Tons of great rubs, sauces, and marinades, as the title states, but also a bunch of great, classic BBQ sides.

Purchased this for my husband. He enjoys smoking meat...so I thought this would be a great addition to his smoking meat collection. He loves it. He has made several of his own BBQ sauces and Rubs. We have even given them out as gifts at Christmas. He gets lots of compliments on his sauces and his smoked meat.

Being a relatively inexperienced smoker of meats, I found this book to be absolutely essential. It's easy to read and use and it will be on the top shelf of my cookbooks. On the "Kingsford Rating System" scale of 1 to 5 charcoal briquets, this book gets a total of 5 Briquets. (picture 5 perfect redhot briquets, all in a cozy mound)

I've always been a big fan of the Dummies books. They're written in such a way that an average person can understand the topic. This book is no different.
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.

Like many backyard BBQ'ers I watch the different shows available now showing a myriad of styles, rubs, sauces, etc... I got to where my concoctions were overpowering the meat, and disappointing my friends. This book helped me to take it back a few notches, and understand WHY different seasonings go so well with others. It really improved my game, and my family/friends now ask me to cook for their gatherings regularly. Free food & beer, definitely worth it!

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.

I have read "BBQ Sauces, Rubs and Marinades For Dummies".
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.

I have been successfully competing on the BBQ circuit for 18 years. I purchased this book in order to meet the minimum purchase price to get free shipping. Since I received it, I have used it more than the BBQ book that I originally ordered.

Don't be fooled by the name. This book will give ideas to anyone from "Dummies" to the seasoned BBQ professional.
