I'll second that. Anything from Paul Kirk is good too.

I guess a little of both Cap. My daughter had a volleyball tournament today and i thought i was gonna be there till about 7pm so I wanted to get some reading material. Anyways Heres what I bought:

Dr. BBQ's Big Time Cookbook

Smoke and Spice

on the way to the register I saw The Barbecue Bible and my wife said "well if you want it you better get it now cause its only $6.98" So I thought what the he** Ill get that too.

My daughters team got their butts kicked and was the first team "OUT".

The BBQ Bible cost me almost 30 bucks about 5 or 6 years ago.
While the basic info on grilling and smoking is excellent, I
was really pissed that 2/3rds of the book was dedicated to
"bbq" from Iran, Laos, and other countries whose cuisine
I could not care less about.

For what you paid, an excellent buy!

I feel a little that way about Smoke and Spice....I disagreed
with one of their thoughts after only a few pages. I got the updated
version, but the recipes still seemed a little dated.

holy smoke is my favorite (not just because I'm mentioned), and
Bob Garner's book "North Carolina Barbecue: Flavored By Time"
is a close second.

Of course, I'm a NC boy, so I'm a little biased. But the reason why
is those books do more to tell about the foundation, and thus the technique, of American barbecue than the others. They do include a few recipes, but that is not the focus of the book. Perhaps Smokestack Lightning" is similar in this regard.


Still...if you've got the bbq bug, anything you read will be fun and
almost certainly instructional.

For me, though, the instructions come right here at BBQ Central.
And they're free.
