    Good Deal on a Good Book

    When I first moved to Texas some 40+ years ago, I discovered the BBQ. I was a Midwest boy who only knew how to burn a piece of meat on a grill over charcoal. I soon started eating real BBQ then started wondering how they did that. That led me on the journey that has taken me the rest of my life to just nick the true surface of that answer. While trolling around for a book on Amazon I ran across this book about Texas BBQ, one that I'd seen a long time ago and has been recently re-published. Looking at some of the recipes I saw some things I haven't tried in years, like marinading and basting chicken with basically Italian dressing, something I did religiously for years and have gotten away from. Anyway, those in Texas will enjoy this book, but even if you're not it's a glimpse into a tradition that goes back as far as the Republic, PLUS it's only $1.80 for the Kindle version. Enjoy !!!

        Thank you for sharing the knowledge. $1.80 might buy us a gem in the rough.

          Such a deal. $1.80 won't get you anything at Starbucks. Well, maybe a stare from the barista that for all intents and purposes asks, "Are you stupid or something?"

            Got this book about 3 1/2 years ago when I stumbled upon a dude with a top ten recommended reading list about BBQ, just when I was getting interested in the art of Q. The dude was Meathead. 6 months later I went in search of who he was & found AR. The west is histowy. Wuv wibs.

              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.

              Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

              Placeholder

              We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5" x 29.5" footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

              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.

              This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

              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.
