About the Author
In the world of barbecue, champion pitmaster Mike Mills is affectionately knowon as "The Legend." He presides over the pits at his six nationally acclaimed 17th Street Bar & Grill restaurants in Southern Illinois and four Memphis Championship Barbecue restaurants in Las Vegas. In the early 1990s he was co-captain of the Apple City Barbecue team, one of the most celebrated teams ever on the circuit. He has the distinction of being the only three-time Grand World Champion at Memphis in May, otherwise known as the Super Bowl of Swine. He is also the barbecue guru and a partner at Blue Smoke restaurant in New York City.
Amy Mills Tunnicliffe, daughter of Mike, is a writer and sought-after professional speaker. She lives near Boston with her two children. She always wanted to be a glamorous heiress. Little did she dream her fortune would lie in barbecue.

I don't know whether this is the "real" magic dust formula, but then again, I don't really care either- the point of the book is to give you enough information to get you fired up (no pun intended) so that you start experimenting with your own rub, and it did the trick for me. I love to cook, I love to smoke meat, I love to sit around with friends and tell stories, and I love to read. This book gives me what I need to do all of that. I have never been to any of Mike Mills' restaurants but I can tell you that if I ever get the chance, I will.
Whether you are a newbie to the smoke world, or an old hand, this book is highly recommended.
And this book has more information on how you can smoke at home and achieve great results than any other book I have read.
Mills gives you ideas on great Que without spending your last dollar on special custom smokers. Any one out there with a Weber could improve their Que with this book.
Great stories, multiple recipes, well worth the money and your time.
Out of all the 'how to' books on offer, this would be my choice.
Their hospitality is even better, if you get a chance to visit them at their 17th Street BBQ in Murphysboro, IL. Best BBQ I've ever had.
Heck, because of this book, I had to go get a charcoal grill after many with a gas grill. Now my father in law thinks I am the better of the two of us when the grill is turned on.
I am still trying to keep from turning my life over to "low and slow" exclusively, but my PL&BBQ tshirt is in the mail.
