Additional Details

Description: Who doesn't love to eat outdoors? The tantalizing aroma of sizzling chicken or steaks, the mellow glow of the coals, the hum of happy voices -- it all adds up to fun for everyone. And the setting can be porch, patio, park, seashore, or stream. 

In this cookbook, you'll find many interesting recipes and ideas, developed for outdoor cooking and dining. And you'll find them divided into three major sections. 

First come the basics of barbecuing: the fire, the fuel, and heat control; second, occasions for outdoor feasts: Backyard or Terrace Barbecues, Shore Cooking, Seaside in the Backyard, Cooking Afloat, Cruising on Land, Packtrip Cooking, Breakfast Cookouts, and Picnics; and third, a collection of recipes for outdoor dining -- from the simplest to the most exotic fare. These recipes included everything you might like to cook or eat outdoors -- meats and main dishes, vegetables, fruits, salads, breads, and desserts.
