Review quote

"This cookbook makes it clear that barbecue competitors Husbands (chef & owner, Tremont 647; The Fearless Chef) and Chris Hart achieve success through an undying commitment to their obsession. Their Seven-Layer Dip is a highbrow concoction of shredded short ribs, crab remoulade, beef tartare, salmon spread, and more, and their other recipes (except perhaps the cocktails and desserts) are equally challenging. With help from food writer Andrea Pyenson, their prose exudes energy and confidence, and that makes this an entertaining read. VERDICT: Mere mortals may not have the patience for recipes like Six Day Bacon of the Gods or 25-Step Championship Chicken, but fervent BBQ diehards with their eyes on a championship will believe their prayers have been answered." - Library Journalshow more
