We've made a dozen recipes so far. EVERYTHING has been easy to do and OUTSTANDING! Sam gives you tips and shortcuts that make every BBQ dish simple, often using things I already have in my fridge...like his Meatloaf On The Grill recipe...delish! Lots of great recipes for BBQ steaks (his Sweet and Spicy Flank Steak is to die for!), burgers and even SANDWICHES done on the grill, as well as unusual and delicious finds such as Mexican Grilled Corn and Pastrami Grilled Grilled Cheese! You gotta get this book!

I have been avidly following STCG for quite a while and he never fails me when it comes to simple, great tasting food. My husband and I happened to get a BBQ grill for Christmas (our first one!), so I was excited to finally have a reason to purchase Sam's latest cookbook! Upon first glance, he's got a whole lot of recipes for sauces, beef, lamb, seafood, and even a few drink/misc. recipes. We have made a few of the items in this cookbook and have not been disappointed. Sam's hilarity and sarcastic and amusing quips throughout the pages of this cookbook make his recipes shine; his laid-back tone makes it a lot more fun to read and browse for the perfect dish! Here's to you, Sam, you've done it again!

I grill period. I can cook from a recipe. I cannot bake. Grilling is everything to me. This guy's TV shows are funny and simple to follow. So it just made sense that his books would follow this same approach. He just uses simplistic terms. He even suggests substitutes if you don't have access to some of the ingredients. Plus he loves his family, all of them even the K-9 kids.

Grilling for those who'd rather enjoy their time with guests than constantly in front of the grill and not worrying about whether the food will be great or not.
Sam has a way with making the simple stuff better.
"Fast. easy and tasty" is this man's mantra. Highly recommended!

I bought this for my husband because he loves to grill. What I love is that I would catch him referring to this book quite often! Written in classic Sam-style. We have all of his cookbooks, BTW. Wish all the photos were in glossy color, though.

Sam Zien has been my favorite cook for the last 10 years. This book on grilling is most enlightening. He shows you how to cook the most intriguing foods you never thought was possible to grill. Sam's basic thinking is that if it must be good, and fast, before the recipe can make it into any of his cookbooks. This one is my third.

Cookbooks written by celebrity chefs and television cooking show hosts range in spectrum from poor to very good. Many are large-format, beautifully illustrated books destined to the coffee table only. //Just Grill This// is a very practical, very useful cookbook on grilling that is likely to be placed on the cookbook shelf.||The six introductory pages provide brief grilling tips, information on grilling equipment, tools and sauces the grill cook ought to have. The subsequent 15 pages provide recipes for sauces, rubs and other condiments useful in grilling. The recipes, some 120 of them, are very good and include non-grilled items such as salads and beverages. They are well written, very easy to follow and mostly simple with about half a dozen readily available ingredients. Everything grillable is there: meat, poultry, seafood, sandwiches, vegetables, burgers and hotdogs. A chapter on indoor grilling using a ridged grill pan is for the inveterate grill cooks on rainy days. The layout is great, each recipe on a single page, sometimes in two columns for the convenience of the cook. The instructions are brief, almost like shorthand, but most cooks should have no problem following them. Novice cooks are likely to be more comfortable with a bit more detailed instructions. Here is an example:

Pepper Chili Sauce
½ cup chili sauce
2 tablespoons coarsely ground black pepper

Mix.
Use.
If you already thanked me for the ketchup version, we're good.
Go back to eating.

Zien writes with a good sense of wit; however, this humor is not for everyone and at times somewhat forced.||Brief sidebars labeled BTW are scattered throughout the book giving good, useful, sometimes additional recipe information.
