Description: For generations, the Lobels from their Madison-Avenue shop, Lobel's Prime Meats, have been New York's premiere source best quality meats. Now, with Prime Time, they share their expertise in making the most of all kinds of meat using America's favorite cooking tool: the grill. 

The first things that usually come to mind when thinking of grilling are burgers and perhaps a steak. But there is much more to it than merely putting the meat down on prime time the grill and waiting until it's done. The Lobels know that the grill is not just an ordinary heat source. It's a unique cooking device that when used correctly can produce absolutely delicious, show-stopping results. 

For starters, the book gives clear and easy-to-follow advice for all types of grilling equipment, from types of grills right down to the fuel. Gas or charcoal? And what about hardwood shavings? Will lighter fluid give my food a chemical flavor? How do I know when the grill is hot enough? Everything is explained so that anyone can use whatever is on hand to create delicious and elegant entrees. 

But this is just the beginning of their expertise. The Lobels are known for their butchering, and so it follows that they know exactly what types of meat and specific cuts are best for different occasions and dishes. 

Chapters are organized by type of meat, starting with Burgers and following up with Beef and Veal, Lamb and Pork, Poultry, and Game. Step-by-step instructions will have home cooks creating everything from a Classic Hamburger to Butterflied Leg of Lamb Marinated in Yogurt and Mint. 

A final chapter on Sauces, Salsas, Marinades, Rubs, and Other Condiments is full of great ideas for adding a variety of flavors to your grilled meat dishes, and the appendix clearly shows all the cuts of meat that are described in the chapters. Everyone loves a grill party, and now Prime Time makes it a snap for anyone to turn the classic fare of the great American grill intosomething as elegant and delicious as it is easy. 

Evan, Leon, Stanley, and Mark Lobel own and operate Lobel's Prime Meats on Madison Avenue and 82nd Street in New York City. Their family has been in the butcher business for generations. Their previous books are Meat, How to Be Your Own Butcher, and All About Meat.
