Fun and helpful little cookbook, in an interesting format. This is, essentially, an adult "board book", with thick stiff pages and highly glossy illustrations. Perry Lang breaks down the basics on preparing BBQ with beef, pork, chicken, lamb, seafood and miscellaneous items. Included are essential ingredients and techniques for rubs, brines, marinades and bastes, and lists of the essential tools needed for each dish. Some of his techniques for both direct and indirect grill cooking seem intriguing, including a method that involves the meat visiting the grill twice -- once while exposed to the smoke, and the second time while wrapped in foil. All his illustrations are extremely helpful. I really enjoyed this BBQ cookbook, and look forward to trying out some of his ideas. -- recommended by Scott C. - Bennett Martin Public Library
