Review quote

"This book has life and character. While most cookbooks read boring this one is very entertaining and informative. He helps break down the differences between each type of smoker, and tells you how to cook based upon your type. All of the other bbq books I received didn't guide me on how to cook dependent on my smoker. The illustrations are well drawn and provide great detail. People might be turned off by his arrogance, but I found it funny making the book less dull. The tutorial starts you off with more simpler and less expensive cuts and slowly you graduate yourself up. I went through the whole tutorial process. There isn't a better beginner book than this one."--Adam Grey "I have seen a lot of barbecue books and I say without hesitation that this is the first true barbecue how-to book ever published. But don't think Gary's book is only for the novice. It includes numerous tried and true recipes as well as advice on developing your own signature rubs, sauces and marinades. There are numerous tips, techniques and nuggets of wisdom that will benefit even the most experienced and jaded barbecue cook. I highly recommend this book as an essential addition to any barbecue bookshelf."--Garry Howard, The Smoke Ring "In the years I've been acquainted with Gary Wiviott, his passion and curiosity about food has been surpassed only by his generosity for sharing his experiences and vast knowledge on the subject. His web site, Wiviott.com, and his Five Easy Dinners program is both entertaining and accessible and makes me want to go out and follow each step right now."--Monica Eng, Dining & Food Features, Chicago Tribune ..".learning the techniques [Wiviott] presents has increased my BBQ ability ten-fold. The techniques taught are fundamentally required and the recipes are wonderful."--Bama BBQshow more

About Colleen Rush

Gary Wiviott is a barbecue life coach. From the popular online tutorial that started it all to his lively cooking demonstrations and teaching diehards how to set up a smoker in Chicago's notoriously brutal winter weather, he is committed to spreading the gospel of low and slow barbecue. He is no stranger to the most popular national barbecue forums and food communities, including TheSmokeRing.com, Slow Food USA, and the Society for the Preservation of Traditional Southern Barbecue. Gary is also the founder of LTHForum.com, the Chicago-based culinary chat site. Colleen Rush is the author of The Mere Mortal's Guide to Fine Dining: From Salad Forks to Sommeliers, How to Eat and Drink in Style Without Fear of Faux Pas (Broadway, 2006). She knew very little (okay, nothing) about barbecue before meeting Gary-thought nothing of using lighter fluid-but has since reformed her ways and makes a damn fine pulled pork sandwich.show more
