Introduction: What Is Barbecue? 1(4)
A Brief History of Barbecue in America 5(12)
GETTING STARTED: A Concise Primer on Grilling & Barbecuing 17(15)
A short course in choosing a grill, setting it up, getting it lit, and knowing when the food is cooked.
OFF TO A FIERY START 32(76)
Begin the meal with pizzazz. Flame cook Prosciutto-Wrapped Peaches like they do in Virginia,
chicken wings the Louisville way, Mojo-Marinated Pork Florida style, and Tiki Beef Kebabs with
California flare. Dozens of choices, plus some drinks to serve alongside, including a Chimayo Cocktail.
LIVE-FIRE SALADS 108(24)
Grilling brings out the best in a salad. Wait until you try the Grilled Caesar Salad
or the Tomato and Hearts of Palm. Plus Calamari Salad with White Beans and Bitter Lettuce,
and four kinds of slaw.
BREADS AND PIZZAS 132(30)
The grill makes the perfect toaster. There's plenty of room for that Little Italy favorite,
garlic bread. Or A New Corn Stick from the West Indies. Or pizzas the way they grill them
in Rhode Island and New York. Bread takes to fire like smoke to the grill.
GLORIOUSLY GRILLED BEEF 162(70)
North America's love affair with beef is celebrated in a luscious round-up of steaks from Tucson,
San Antonio, New York, Miami, Dallas, Toronto, L.A., Indianapolis, and of course, Philadelphia
(sizzling with cheese). Plus briskets from North Dakota, Oklahoma, and Ohio, and everything else big and beefy.
GOING WHOLE HOG 232(76)
The icon of American barbecue, pork, couldn't be more succulent than it is here-pulled and piled high
on buns like they do in North Carolina, coffee-crusted and served Kentucky-style with Redeye Barbecue sauce,
roasted whole for a pig pickin' la West Virginia. Plus ribs from all over, including Missouri's sweet
and Smoky Dry Rub version.
LAMB WITH SIZZLE 308(24)
A favorite meat of our Founding Fathers, and it's no wonder. Wait until you try Virginia's Spit-Roasted
Lamb with Butter & Salt, Illinois' Smoked Lamb Shanks with Mint Barbecue Sauce, and Missouri's BBQ Queens'
Parmesan Pepper Rack of Lamb. You'll understand why.
BURGERS, DOGS & SAUSAGES 332(32)
Seeking a new way to grill a burger? Look no further than Connecticut's Ultimate Hamburger. Or, how about
a California sushi burger? Hot dogs? Try Cincinnati Chili Dogs. Or how about great Grilled Greek Sausage
with Peppers and Onions, a top choice in Massachusetts. Plus plenty of other recipes for America's barbecue
favorites.
BIRDS ON THE BARBECUE 364(68)
Brant's Brined Beer Butt Bird from Alabama, New York's Original Cornell Chicken, Missouri's Powderpuff
Barbecued Chicken Breasts, Huli Huli Chicken from Hawaii, and Vermont's Perfect Thanksgiving Turkey.
Plus duck, game hens, and quail. The best birds cooked the best ways-grilled, smoked, or spitroasted.
FLAME-SEARED FISH 432(88)
Maple-Mustard salmon from Vermont, New Jersey's Grilled Swordfish with Summer Salsa, Spice-Crusted Tuna
from California, Bacon-Grilled Trout from Montana, Big Apple Cod from New York, and Grouper Matacumbe from
the Florida Keys-our country is rich with fish; here they are all fired up to perfection.
SIZZLING SHELLFISH 520(44)
Soft-shell crabs grilled the Delaware way. A Canadian dill-grilled lobster. Five West Coast ways to grill
oysters. Shellfish is more than shrimp on the barbie, but they're here, too, grilled both Louisiana and
Indiana style.
THE VEGETARIAN GRILL 564(22)
Portobello "Cheese steaks" from Pennsylvania, Hickory-Smoked Baked Bean Squash from Maine, and three different
quesadillas from across the country are barbecued dishes so good, no one will beef!
FLAME- ROASTED VEGETABLES 586(40)
There's nothing like live fire to bring out a vegetable's sweetness. Not to be missed are Louisiana's Cajun
Grilled Asparagus or Midwestern Grilled Corn with Maytag Blue Cheese. Or how about Hawaii's Grilled Plantains,
or Vermont's Madeira Grilled Acorn Squash.
SIDES FROM THE GRILL 626(30)
Grill up a New England "baked apple." Prepare brown beans the West Virginia way. Serve spaghetti with a smoky
sauce like they do in Tennessee or grilled macaroni and cheese New Mexico style. These side dishes are
stand-out sensational.
UNBEATABLE SAUCES 656(42)
Dozens of sauces to choose from, covering all the great barbecue regions. Try St. Louis Red and Nashville Sweet,
Central Texas Barbecue sauce, or a trio of sauces, from Kentucky. There are also Liquid Fire from Florida and
The Doctor's Medicine from Tennessee. Plus slathers, salsas, and chutneys.
HERE'S THE RUB 698 (14)
Make great barbecue even better with the pit master's secret weapons-the rubs, marinades, mop sauces, and glazes
used to add flavor and sheen to meat or fish. Try Tennessee's versatile sweet-hot Cold Mountain Rub-it's good
on just about everything. If you're looking for something more tongue-torturing, Missouri's K.C. Pepper Rub
fills the bill. No barbecue should leave the grill without a little something from this chapter.
GREAT GRILLED DESSERTS 712(29)
Don't let the fire die down until you've flame seared dessert: Smoke-Roasted Apple Crisp, Cinnamon Grilled
