    Fun old cook book

    Pre internet BBQ information.

    I was re arranging some book shelves and found this. I remember buying this book at a library sale sometime in the mid 80's. Evidently for .40. It is still a fun read and even some decent recipes. It was printed in 1966. Copyright was 1965.

    Cool old book, my dad's Q was the flat round 1 with 3 wheels, the grate was threaded into the bottom. If you wanted to change grill height, you either spun the grill like a nut on a bolt.

      Yeah, they've got it down. They're baking spuds, roasting tomatoes (pun intended), grilling steak in one fell swoop, and, all outdoors.

          No info on that type of grill. Googled many types go grills, haven't seen one like that yet. Very curious though.

        That's pretty cool .... I'd love to find something like that just to have around the house for fun. Better yet, put it out on the counter when I have people coming for Saturday BBQ party ... People would get a kick out of it, I'm sure.

        Scan a bunch of the recipes, and let's see which ones are horribly wrong and which ones stand the test of time. Who knows, maybe we'll find a great dish of roast meat in there!

          I imagine this belonged to my dad or grandfather. The copyright is 1979. It has a bit of everything - bread, wine, cold weather cooking. No rubs, just marinades. Most everything, even the ribs, are seared first and then cooked indirectly. Ribs - 1.5 - 2 hours.

          If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

          Placeholder

          The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

          The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

          Placeholder

          The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

          Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

          Placeholder

          The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

          The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

          Placeholder

          The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

          Placeholder

          The Thermoworks Thermapen MK4 is considered by the pros, and our team, to be the single best instant read thermometer. The MK4 includes features that are common on high-end instruments: automatic backlight and rotating display. Don't accept cheap substitutes.

          Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

          Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

          Placeholder

          The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

          Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

          Placeholder

          The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

          Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

          The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

          Placeholder

          Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
