Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. Part travelogue and part cookbook, Huntley and Lednicer's profiles of American barbecue aficionados deserves a spot on the shelf next to any avid outdoor cooker's library of favorites. The authors, members of the Kansas City Barbecue Society, are well-versed in regional styles and methods, giving equal space to all approaches. Offering close to a hundred recipes for everything from a Trashcan Oyster Roast and a surprisingly frog-free Frogmore Stew (essentially a low country boil) to traditional Brisket and Baked Beans, the dishes are varied and many can accommodate groups of twenty or more. But the real find here is the people doing the cooking: Huntly and Lednicer sought out barbecue fans around the country who employ everything from cardboard boxes to converted commercial pizza deck ovens in their quest for the best barbecue. Their stories (including one in which an entire pig catches fire) entertain and educate, though those looking for specific instructions on recreating these homegrown contraptions will find crucial details lacking. Still, it's rare to find a new take on this well-worn topic, and the authors do an admirable job bringing together colorful characters, inventive techniques and lip-smacking food, making this great for reading while you wait for the ribs to get done.

Long story short I met Dan the Pig man while waiting for my pulled bbq plate at his food truck in Charlotte NC, I asked him what sort of pit he was using and we ended up talking for a good 30 minutes a few days later I got his book and I was a little skeptical at first but as I dug through the material I found it very interesting and definitely not your middle of the mill BBQ recipe/cookbook I mostly enjoyed his take on how smoked meats are prepared in different part of the world.
Good addition to my cooking library

Goodness gracious if this isn't the BEST BBQ cookbook I've ever read and owned. Dan the Pig Man has everything you have ever needed or will ever need to impress your friends, be loved by family and lusted after by your spouse. This is the quintessential BBQ cookbook. Throw the others out.

And while you're at it, be ready for Dan's next product - Eau de Que! The essence of barbeque in a spray. If you can't eat well at least you can carry the aroma around with you.

I really liked this book, from a character story viewpoint, but not as a cookbook. I bought it for the pictures for ideas on building my own unique Bar-B-Q pit. The pictures that were there are excellent and really unique. The only problem is that there are just too few of them. This is still a really cool book. More pics would have made it a keeper. Great gift for the Bar-B-Q'r in your life.
