Which brings me to the problems with the new edition. The 2nd edition has added significant amounts of color photography and how-to diagrams, drawing on Raichlen's 2001 How to Grill for stylistic inspiration. If you're a new griller, this will be a welcome improvement. However, if you've been buying Raichlen's books since the beginning, the revision presents a problem: if you already have the first edition, you probably don't need to bother with this one.Read more ›
If, however, you are interested in flavors from around the world as well as your own backyard, learning some new ways to cook--and aren't AFRAID of trying something new or occasionally exploring your local international grocery store--then this book is indispensable. (I would say that probably 80% of the recipes have ingredients that can all be purchased at your local big box grocery store, though.) Flip through it the night before you want to grill something so you can have time to marinade, if necessary. It's a weekend cookbook, not an after work, week night cookbook.
It's recipes for sangria and margaritas have become the only ones we use. The pork rollatinis, the matambre, the Asian pear dipping sauce, the satays, the peanut sauces, the jerk marinade, the pulled pork with slaw, the bulgogi, and countless others have become meal regulars. (Oh man, make the matambre!) Cooking is fun, grilling is fun, food is exciting when you're trying something new and your palate is awakened. Expand your palate and get this book--pay no attention to the nay-sayers. They can eat something safe and boring at Applebee's and leave the good food for the rest of us!
In his sweet spot of accessible grilling and barbecuing, Raichlen hits a home run. Among the qualities of his book that I enjoy:
(1) A good primer on grilling and barbecuing, explaining the difference and key concepts such as direct versus indirect cooking.
(2) Excellent photography that goes beyond sexy food shots (though there are some of those too). Photos are used to show HOW to execute key concepts, showing for example how to spatchcock (remove the backbone and butterfly) a chicken or how to fillet a whole fish.
(3) The layout is very well done , with recipes shown clearly, key tips and notes set out on lime green rectangles and a pleasing mix of text, graphics and photos.Read more ›
