I'm not a beginner, but I gotta' check this book out. I think it is good for everyone to keep learning.
11 styles of ribs? I want to see that. I also can't wait to see if there are rub and sauce recipes I don't already have in Big-Time BBQ Cookbook. And, the lack of a lot of desserts doesn't bother me, as I seldom eat desserts.
I'm also glad to see the use of professional photography. As a pro photographer, I like to see publishers recognize the value of pro photography. That alone is enough for me to buy the book. I like to support those who support my profession at a time when it isn't getting the respect it used to.
Thanks for the review.
