Wow! LOTS of suggestions.

Smoke & Spice seems like the one to get first. I'll head out tomorrow and see if I can grab it.

I agree, YouTube has some great watching. Though I find my wife being more receptive to me reading a book in bed each night than being on the laptop. click clack click clack on the keyboard...

Serious BBQ, Big Bob Gibson's BBQ, and Dr. BBQ's Big Time BBQ are a few of my favorites. Steven Raichlen's Planet BBQ is also an interesting book for a different kind of grilling/BBQ book.

Myron Nixon is a great book if u think people have no taste and the way to cater to the ignorant unwashed is to use meat as a delivery system for sugar and industrial vat flavors, and beans as a dessert.

Can't comment on other books but this forum has led my way further than my Myrons greedy ways, and I don't care who knows it.

I have Smoke & Spice, Serious Barbecue, and Myron Mixons book. All are good, but I like Serious barbecue the best.

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

My top three in this order:

Dr. BBQ's Big Time Barbeque Cookbook by Ray Lampe (Ray is a Brethren and any of his books are good choices but if i had to pick just one start here)
Peace Love and BBQ by Mike Miles is a another goodun.
The Legends of Texas Barbecue Cookbook by Robb Walsh is another favorite that covers various regions & history of BBQ in The Lone Star State.

I would suggest to purchase used. Try Amazon and look at the used section. Just saw one for $6.76 +TTL.

I like a lot of the ones mentioned, and I'll add Paul Kirk's Championship Barbecue just for the sheer number and variety of recipes. It covers a lot of bases and the things I've made out of it have turned out well. It's very versatile.

I hear ya - and I think it goes for a lot of books as well. When I do use a book, I'll just go for the recipes, and the methods I use come either by experience or I check on this site right here. I pretty much ignore cook times and even target temps - be they meat or pit temps - in most books.
