It’s a comprehensive BBQ guide that includes recipes, beautiful photographs, where to go for authentic BBQ and competitions throughout the Barbecue Belt. Divided into REGIONS so that you get the local flavor, the editors traveled the South finding the BEST pit stops and competitions. Tips, techniques and tools of the trade are all explored, helping you to create the BEST BBQ right alongside the MASTERS of the Grill.
Oh and don’t forget the RECIPES!!! From brisket to ribs and every thing in between you’ll have your family asking if you can cook out EVERY night. Marinades, rubs, pastes, bastes and butters offer an array of flavors that will NEVER get boring. From drinks to desserts, everything that you need to create your meal is included.
