Default Must Have BBQ Book?

Anybody have any suggestions of great BBQ/Smoking books one should have in their library? I feel like doing some reading this week.

Not only receipts, but just good content about general BBQ would be nice too.

I like the Big Bob Gibson BBQ Book and the Wicked Good BBQ book. Lots of good recipes in there besides the BBQ staples.

Peace Love and BBQ is a good book also, but it wasn't as good of a read for me personally.

Books are nice to have but I enjoy watching people do bbq and grilling on YouTube. There are 6 or 8 channels that I watch regularly and I probably have learned more from them than I have from any book.

Agree on the books referenced above, I'd definitely add Myron Mixon's book to the list if you don't have it.

Thought of this after I replied the first time - there is a good roadmap thread on this.

APL's Serious Barbecue is another must-have if you can find it used at a reasonable price.

I went down to the local second hand thrift store and rummaged through the books and came out with some gems. I've been meaning to make a post of them but haven't got around to it. I John williamghams world champion BBQ, barbecue & smoke cookery, outdoor cooking and Betty crockers barbecue cookbook for like 8 bucks total.
