John Willingham’s World Champion Bar-B-Q: Over 150 Recipes And Tall Tales For Authentic… [Hardcover]This is one of the best Bar-B- Q books. The author, a genuine BBQ competition multiple title champion, offers enough information to get anyone started on BBQing the proper way.
He covers equipment, BBQ basics (how BBQ cooking is different then grilling, roasting, etc), he then tells how to BBQ different meats. Once you got the ground rules, he then hits you with several excellent original authentic recipies.
He then offers a few variations on the normal recipies, and wraps it up with recipies for sauces, rubs, spices, mops, etc. Scattered throughout the book are bbq history, tidbits, and stories. If I had to choose between this Bar-B-Q book and others this one would be my Choice.
