I just thumbed through BBQ USA by Raichlen from front to back, and I gotta say it's an awesome start. Last weekend I cooked up his KC spareribs (turned out awesome) and a couple weekends ago I followed his pineapple baby back ribs recipe (another awesome one). This weekend i'm cooking up his filipino pork skewers which I have been trying to perfect on my own for about 3 years and when I mixed up his marinade and test tasted it, it was pretty much exactly what I've been looking for.
After the skewers, my plan is to do up his german style spit roasted ham hocks!
Methinks if you get those two books you'll have PLENTY to keep you occupied for a while!
