Description: Welcome to planet barbecue. Welcome to the fire pits of South America, home of churrasco and matambre (literally "hunger killer"). Welcome to the shoebox-size grills of Asia, with their hundreds of sates and sambals. Welcome to village tandoors in India, Tuscan hearths, Mexican barbacoa, and Texan cook-offs. Traveling across the world's barbecue belt, visiting 25 countries on 5 continents while logging over 150,000 miles, multi-award-winning cookbook author Steven Raichlen discovers the world's best grilled food and how to prepare it.
All the basics are covered: charcoal vs. gas; direct vs. indirect grilling; how to gauge your fire's heat if you don't have a thermometer (hold your hand 6 inches above the grill and start counting); and step-by-step instructions for grilling the perfect steak, the perfect roast, the perfect rib, the perfect whole fish, the perfect chicken, the perfect pepper.
Picking up tips from hundreds of grill jockeys, both professionals and passionate amateurs, Raichlen opens a world of accumulated experience and recipes. He shows how to stud an eggplant with garlic for an irresistible baba ganooj. How to roast an incredibly juicy-on-the-inside, golden-on-the-outside whole chicken by cooking the bird upright on an open can of beer. How to build a two-tier fire for making grilled pizza with a deliciously charred crust. How to achieve the falling-off-the-bone succulence of North Carolina-style pulled pork.
And he gives the home griller an arsenal of sauces, marinades, achars, chutneys, salsas, relishes, pickles, pastes, composed butters, and spice rubs that elevate every dish out of the everyday.
Food cooked over an open fire has a primal appeal that knows no bounds -- an appeal that The Barbecue Bible brings right to your backyard or kitchen. Its recipes are righteous to the last bite.
