Thanks for the replies. I've been really into the CI Family of websites for about the last 4 months. I agree that they really try to sell you everything under the sun but I appreciate the wealth of info they have to offer. They have tamed my fears about a lot of things. I was floored by how easy it is to make Alfredo sauce. That's my favorite side with grilled steak!

As far as their BBQ approach I initially felt I'd rather stick with The Brethren for my BBQ education but I figured there might be some cool things in that book. I was planning to order another of their books from and needed something to get me over $25.00 to get free shipping. Still debating though.

If you're looking to buy a cookbook, Adam Perry Lang has a couple good ones - I just got Serious Barbecue and have been enjoying that lately. There's also Legends of Texas, Big Bob Gibson's BBQ book, Smoke & Spice, etc.

I just got an interesting book called The Flavor Bible (thanks PatioDaddio!) which isn't really a coobook, but more about balancing flavors, herbs, spices, etc. I just started that one & it has a lot of great info for all types of cooking.

I agree, its Kimball and crews weakest skill set.
