If you love BBQ, then you'll love this book. Secret family recipes revealed for some of your favorite items at famous BBQ landmarks. On top of that, this book is full of great stories about the proprietors and pit masters. --Savory Reviews, June 24, 2009
There's so much to like about this book, most of all the way form and function mesh so well in this BBQ volume that's as much guide book as a cookbook. It's such a genuine, natural mix of recipes, people, places, and BBQ trivia that it's similar to one of the road shows on the Food Network and just as enjoyable. Two Kansas City pitmasters have teamed up to put all their expertise into America's Best BBQ 100 Recipes from America's Best Smokehouses, Pits, Shacks, Rib Joints, Roadhouses, and Restaurants. Ardie Davis is the founder of the American Royal International BBQ Sauce, Rub and Baste Contest. He's also known as Remus Powers, Ph.B. Paul Kirk is the operator of Baron's School of Pitmasters and has won 475 cooking and barbecue awards.
