Kentucky's culinary fame may have been built on bourbon and fried chicken, but the Commonwealth has much to offer the barbecue thrill-seeker. The Kentucky Barbecue Book is a feast for readers who are eager to sample the finest fare in the state. From the banks of the Mississippi to the hidden hollows of the Appalachian Mountains, author and barbecue enthusiast Wes Berry hit the trail in search of the best smoke, the best flavor, and the best pitmasters he could find. This handy guide presents the most succulent menus and colorful personalities in Kentucky. While other states are better known for their 'cue, the Kentucky style is distinct because of its use of mutton and traditional cooking methods. Many of the establishments featured in this book are dedicated to the time-honored craft of cooking over hot hardwood coals inside cinderblock pits. Time intensive and dangerous, these traditions are disappearing as methods requiring less manpower, less wood, and less skill gain ground. Pick up a copy of this book and hit the road before these great places are gone.
Für alle, denen es nicht nur ums Sattwerden geht, sondern um das perfekte Ergebnis Nichts schmeckt besser als ein selbst gegrilltes Steak. Dem Grillmeister, Autor und Fotografen "Meathead" Goldwyn ist das jedoch nicht genug. Für ihn ist das Grillen eine exakte Wissenschaft mit dem Ziel, das perfekte, auf den Punkt gebrachte Ergebnis zu erzielen. In seinem Buch liefert er fundiertes Grundlagen- und Expertenwissen, das jeder Griller kennen und verinnerlichen sollte. Anschaulich beschreibt er, wie der Grill und das Grillzubehör (Hardware), das Grillgut (Software) mit Rauch und Hitze optimal zusammenspielen, und räumt mit gängigen Mythen auf, z. B. dass das Fleisch vor dem Grillen Zimmertemperatur haben oder der Rost eingeölt werden sollte, um ein Ankleben zu verhindern. Dieses Buch enthält 118 vom Autor entwickelte und sorgfältig getestete Rezepte, von gegrillter Polenta über Quiche mit Räucherlachs bis hin zu Spanferkel und tollen Saucen, Marinaden und Beilagen. Darunter befinden sich sowohl traditionelle Grillrezepte als auch raffinierte Neukreationen, die Laien und Grillexperten gleichermaßen das Wasser im Mund zusammenlaufen lassen.

Nicht zuletzt handelt das Buch aber auch von seinem BBQ-Roadtrip durch Texas und so dürfen Abstecher zu Myron Mixon und Aaron Franklin nicht fehlen.

In Texas BBQ, Wyatt McSpadden immortalized the barbecue joints of rural Texas in richly authentic photographs that made the people and places in his images appear as timeless as barbecue itself. The book found a wide, appreciative audience as barbecue surged to national popularity with the success of young urban pitmasters such as Austin’s Aaron Franklin, whose Franklin Barbecue has become the most-talked-about BBQ joint on the planet. Succulent, wood-smoked “old school” barbecue is now as easy to find in Dallas as in DeSoto, in Houston as in Hallettsville. In Texas BBQ, Small Town to Downtown, Wyatt McSpadden pays homage to this new urban barbecue scene, as well as to top-rated country joints, such as Snow’s in Lexington, that were under the radar or off the map when Texas BBQ was published. Texas BBQ, Small Town to Downtown presents crave-inducing images of both the new—and the old—barbecue universe in almost every corner of the state, featuring some two dozen joints not included in the first book. In addition to Franklin and Snow’s, which have both occupied the top spot in Texas Monthly’s barbecue ratings, McSpadden portrays urban joints such as Dallas’s Pecan Lodge and Cattleack Barbecue and small-town favorites such as Whup’s Boomerang Bar-B-Que in Marlin. Accompanying his images are barbecue reflections by James Beard Award–winning pitmaster Aaron Franklin and Texas Monthly’s barbecue editor Daniel Vaughn. Their words and McSpadden’s photographs underscore how much has changed—and how much remains the same—since Texas BBQ revealed just how much good, old-fashioned ’cue there is in Texas.
