What’s the best barbecue cookbook? “If I lost this book, I would quit grilling.” says David Booher of Elizabethton, Tennessee, in his GoodReads review of John Willingham’s barbecue cookbook and guide to cooking better barbecue.
A complete barbecue cookbook
In the book, John, winner of more major grand champion barbecue awards than anyone else in history, shared his celebrated recipes for a complete barbecue feast. At the heart of this book are John’s acclaimed recipes for mouthwatering beef, pork, fish, and chicken barbecue. There are clear instructions for determining what type of cooker to use; laying a perfect fire to minimize smoke and maximize taste; preparing and using assorted dry rubs and marinades; getting a rich, marbled taste out of any cut of meat.
Plus the fixin’s
No barbecue cookbook would be complete without starters, salads, fixin’s, slaws, and dessert. And this book has blue-ribbon recipes for them all: Smokin’ Fastball Wings, Angel Biscuits, Cajun Coleslaw. For dessert, there’s Grandma’s Raisin Bread Pudd’n with Rum Sauce, Old-Fashioned Custard Pie, or rich Maple Sauce spooned over ice cream, to mention just a few.
Learn what real barbecue is and isn’t–and discover the techniques and tips that won John four decades of accolades but are so simple even a backyard ‘cuer can use them. John Willingham’s World Champion Bar-B-Q is the authoritative barbecue cookbook for weekend enthusiasts and world-class chefs ready to follow in the Willingham tradition of creating delicious barbecue masterpieces.
