Killer Barbecue and Grilling Recipes
"The discovery of a new dish confers more happiness on humanity, than the discovery of a new star." Anthelme Brillat Savarin from The Physiology of Taste 1825
Here's a growing list of my favorite recipes. I work hard to perfect them, always striving to figure out the best techniques. I think you'll like you like 'em. Rather than saving them for the book I am working on, I am publishing them here for free with three requests:
1) If you improve upon them or have suggestions, pass them back to me.
2) If you pass them on to friends, ask them to provide me feedback.
3) If you like them, please sign up for Smoke Signals, my free email newsletter, so I can let you know when I publish new recipes and when my book comes out.
