Book Review: BBQ 25
Book Review: BBQ 25
Can you tell that it's officially barbecue and grilling season? I am posting
yet another review, and there are more on the way. I am a bit backlogged,
but that isn't a bad thing.
This time out I'll be giving you my thoughts on the new BBQ 25 by Adam
Perry Lang, or "APL" as he is often referred to in various online barbecue
Late last summer I raved about Adam's book Serious Barbecue, and I will
rave about this book as well. This is a very different book, aimed at a
somewhat different audience, but with the same great roots.
Here is a portion of how Harper Studio describes it:
While Serious Barbecue was the ultimate, comprehensive guideI must say that I completely agree with that description. Put simply, it's a
user-friendly distillation of the key recipes from his previous book.
The form and layout of this book are revolutionary for cookbooks. As you
can somewhat see in the picture below, it is packed with great
need-to-know information that is presented in a way that people think
It starts with the meat cut and equipment list in graphical form, then
moves into the ingredient list, then a graphical depiction of the major
process steps, then into the actual process. Again, the format is very
refreshing and easy to use. Oh, and it has the same outstanding
photography of the previous book, just much smaller.
If you are a grill and barbecue cook, you simply cannot go wrong with this
book. It's small, very concise, and packed with must-know basics.
However, like the previous book, it will stretch your the boundaries and
bring great new flavors to the table.
Get it, read it, and use it!
It's a good book. I read it on the plane ride back from Memphis In May. I'll be reviewing soon too.
I'm about 25 % through Serious BBQ recipes and picked this up. Definitely a change of pace but brings lots of new insight and handy tips. Can't wait to get started cooking this weekend. :) Also the wipe clean format is sweet!
Thanks, ill check it out!
I received the book too.. have just skimmed through it so far, but it looks interesting. :-D
