Part field guide to grilling and barbecuing and part cookbook, Master of the Grill features all kinds of kitchen-tested recipes for meat, poultry, seafood, vegetables, pizza, and more. These are the recipes everyone must understand how to make— the juiciest burgers, barbecue chicken that’s moist not tough, tender grill-smoked pork ribs, the greatest steak (and grilled potatoes to serve alongside). Regional specialties are included, too—learn to make Cowboy Steaks, Alabama BBQ Chicken, and Kansas City Sticky Ribs. Colorful photography captures the wonderful thing about the recipes and step by step shots guide you through everything you want to know. A section on grilling essentials covers the pros and cons of gas and charcoal grills and that may be best for you, in addition to the tools you’ll use with them— such as grill brushes, tongs, vegetable baskets, and wood chips and chunks.
