From Publishers Weekly
After a dozen cookbooks, popular TV personality and restaurateur Lagasse is unflagging in his enthusiasm and encouragement for home cooks, evidenced by this dense appreciation of all things grilled. A smart and approachable mix of the familiar (burgers, garlic bread, Marinated Flank Steak with Chimichurri Sauce) and the exotic (spicy Portugese piri piri kebabs, tandoori chicken drumsticks), Lagasse's latest includes over 150 recipes suitable for the next cookout. Lagasse packs in plenty of flavor without requiring too much effort in terms of sourcing; most cooks should be able to find the necessary requirements for his Vietnamese BBQ Pork Meatballs, Pork and Chorizo Burgers with Green Chile Mayo or Thai-Style Beef Salad with minimal fuss. A consummate entertainer, Lagasse also gives readers plenty of hosting ideas, starting with Watermelon Margaritas and Caipirinhas, can't-miss crowd-pleasers like baked beans and grilled corn (with cheese and chilis), classic desserts like root beer floats and s'mores, and signature southern riffs like mint julep sorbet. Grillers looking to broaden their repertoire are likely to find more than a few new standards here.

This is a very nice book for bringing Emeril's savory and flavorful food aesthetic to the grill. While you certainly can grill indoors, most of us think of grilling as a backyard activity or one for some other outdoors location. We love the fire, the smoke, and the flavor it imparts to the food. While we normally think of meat when we grill, and this book has a lot of meat dishes, Emeril shows us a lot more we can do with our grills.
The book opens with a two page preface from Emeril and a few pages on the basics of cooking on a grill. Emeril opens the book with some festive drinks you can make to serve with your grilled food. Most have alcohol, but not all. And he lets you know which drinks can be served nicely even when omitting the booze. This section is only about 15 pages long. So, it isn't a big part of the book.
The first big food section is on side dishes. If you are familiar with Emeril's various shows over the years, you will feel comfortable with these dishes. You get help with things like grilled smashed potatoes, chipotle-deviled eggs, cucumber salad, bake beans, salads (I like the watercress, avocado, and mango salad - very summery), grilled polenta, tomatoes on the fence (skewers of small tomatoes, oil, garlic, basil, salt, and pepper), and much more.
Next comes a section of sandwiches. These use interesting ingredients such as figs, chipotle, red peppers, taleggio cheese, turkey, pork, and even fish tacos. Just tasty stuff! This is followed by a section with various kinds of burgers and kebabs. Emeril even shows you how to make your own spicy ketchup or a habanero ketchup! Are you up for lamb kababs or burgers? You can find them here as well as burgers made with beef or buffalo. Do swordfish kebabs sound great? How about with a mixed herb pesto? Or sliders made with ground turkey?
You also get nearly forty pages of seafood dishes using fish like swordfish, salmon, sardines, tuna, sea bass, bronzini, and catfish, as well as shellfish such as lobster, shrimp, crab, clams, and a whole lot more.
The "Things With Wings" section provides about thirty pages of poultry dishes exploring styles like Vietnamese, Filipino, Brazilian, Italian, Mexican, Jamaican, and Indian as well as traditional American style BBQ. Emeril even offers a take on the old beer can trick, but with Turkey Breast and BBQ Gravy rather than chicken.
The land based entres explore traditional items such as strip steak (with a stilton-walnut butter), t-bones, rib-eyes, simple bbq ribs, bone in Delmonico steaks, and hanger steak. But Emeril also does takes with a Thai beef salad, a Caribbean pork tenderloin, Korean short ribs, baby lamb chops with a mint pesto, and an Asian-style skirt steak. There are, of course, many more offerings in these thirty pages.
You then get about twenty-five or so pages of desserts: a root bear float, grilled chocolate sandwiches or s'mores, freeze pops, ice cream sandwiches, fruit kebabs, chocolate suffed apples, chocolate chipotle brownies, and even a strawberry pie.
The production values in this book are quite high. The photographs of the dishes are so inviting that you want to make the dish so you can taste what you see in the pictures! They also give you a strong idea about what you are trying to create. The lists of ingredients are clear and helpful. For example if you don't know what pimentón is, the recipe lets you know it is Spanish smoked paprika. The process to cook the dishes are listed in steps and most take three or four with a few taking only two and others requiring seven. Emeril also includes notes about the dish such as how far ahead you can prepare a sauce, how to store it, or what it means to French a piece of meat. You also get the expected number of servings the recipe will create. I also appreciate the nice index and the way the flaps on the front and back covers can be used to mark your place in the recipe you want to work with. While the book is a paperback, the quality of the cover material and the pages within the book show that it is clearly meant to be used in the kitchen and get close to the action.
A really nice book and the kind of quality I have come to expect from Emeril Legasse, as chef whom I admire and feel gratitude towards for the way he has shown me how to cook.

for the grill. Nice to try some different things to spice up our
summer grilling...none of these seem complicated...which is nice
for easy summers!
My disappointments with this book first came from looking at the photos. Many of them are awful. A cookbook should have good photos. It is unclear to me if this is partly due to the printing or the photographer but probably both. The depth of field/fuziness in these shots is bad. I will give some of the picture setups good marks.
My second disappointment was that you have a top chef here discussing tools right at the beginning that are so very basic its annoying. I mean either forget the section or put some value in it. One example is where he mentions skewers, specifically the metal ones, but does not even clue people into the fact that round metal skewers are terrible so one should stick to the flat type. I mean would that have been so hard.
Ok so in summary I am still debating this one. Dad loves the BBQ and would probably like to try some of these recipes but I will look at some other options before deciding.
If I saw this on sale I would probably buy it then. I will probably discuss a recipe or two on my blog.
