MAKE IT EASY!
Grilling may be the world's oldest culinary pastime, but that doesn't mean it's easy. While anyone can char a hot dog, for results guaranteed to please a hungry crowd, you need to know the rules: what equipment is right for you, how to set it up, how to add flavor to your meats and vegetables, and, yes, how to properly cook the food. Knack Grilling Basics is a quick-reading, picture-driven guide to preparing delicious meals outdoors. The first such reference for visual learners, it covers everything from basic tools to all the new gadgets, from recipes for meat, poultry, fish, and veggies to using delicious marinades that reduce harmful chemicals produced when cooking over fire.
Inside you'll find:
350 full-color photos
Charcoal vs. Gas Grills * Grilling Gear
Rubs * Marinades
Steak * Burgers * Hot Dogs
Chicken * Pork * Ribs
Salmon * Shrimp * Scallops
Kabobs * Veggies

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought my first gas grill and was looking for a cookbook that included marinades/rubs for various types of meat as well as the cooking times and temperatures. This cookbook does all of that, plus gives you many options for vegetables and other dishes on the grill. There are color photos and step by step directions on each page. Many recipes also include several additional options to make the same dish "all american" or with a "carribian flair" etc. This book is a great starting point if you are just getting used to grilling with gas. There is also information on grilling with charcoal, but since I just switched from doing that i didn't really read those sections. Would definitely recommend this book. I bought it used for an unbeatable price.
