Lot's of titles still coming out of the wood pile here.

I actually ordered two books last night on Barnes & Noble and should get them by Thursday.

I ended up with "Wicked Good Barbecue" & "Smokin' w/ Myron Mixon".

I will still seek out Smoke & Spice at some point.

If you want a non recipe book that's just straight text on Texas BBQ, I'd recommend this one

Republic of Barbecue : Stories Beyond The Brisket






It's no overstatement to say that the state of Texas is a republic of barbecue. Whether it's brisket, sausage, ribs, or chicken, barbecue feeds friends while they catch up, soothes tensions at political events, fuels community festivals, sustains workers of all classes, celebrates brides and grooms, and even supports churches. Recognizing just how central barbecue is to Texas's cultural life, Elizabeth Engelhardt and a team of eleven graduate students from the University of Texas at Austin set out to discover and describe what barbecue has meant to Texans ever since they first smoked a beef brisket.
Republic of Barbecue presents a fascinating, multifaceted portrait of the world of barbecue in Central Texas. The authors look at everything from legendary barbecue joints in places such as Taylor and Lockhart to feedlots, ultra-modern sausage factories, and sustainable forests growing hardwoods for barbecue pits. They talk to pit masters and proprietors, who share the secrets of barbecue in their own words. Like side dishes to the first-person stories, short essays by the authors explore a myriad of barbecue's themes--food history, manliness and meat, technology, nostalgia, civil rights, small-town Texas identity, barbecue's connection to music, favorite drinks such as Big Red, Dr. Pepper, Shiner Bock, and Lone Star beer--to mention only a few. An ode to Texas barbecue in films, a celebration of sports and barbecue, and a pie chart of the desserts that accompany brisket all find homes in the sidebars of the book, while photographic portraits of people and places bring readers face-to-face with the culture of barbecue.

Not technically a BBQ book, but I am really hoping to get:

"Seven Fires: Grilling the Argentine Way" by Francis Mallman

LOL! I'm always amazed that this book is still so revered when we all know the recipes don't actually work as written. That's kind of a big problem for me :)

So true! When I got my first smoker, someone gave it to me as a gift. It is an enjoyable book to read, but only as I look back now, do I see that it was the source of a lot of frustration over ruined ribs and time wasted.

Seriously no butt kissing intended, but it wasn't until I got your book that things started to make a lot more sense.

Smoke and Spice was the first big BBQ book as far as I can remember and we all bought it and it was a big deal. But now there are so many better books that I'm always surprised when it comes up. If my books had those errors I'd be burned at the stake!

I think back when they wrote it, onewould have been burned at the stake for suggesting that you could cook a good brisket at temps above 225.

I think it probably has a lot of sentimental value as a lot of folks first BBQ book. That's how it is for me - it's where I started (can't remember if that's where I heard about 170 IT for pulled pork ) Even though I pretty much never cook out of it now I still can't imagine being without it for some reason.

I just picked up a copy of BIG BOOK of BBQ the other day.
It's my 1st BBQ book. It covers styles from the east coast
to the west of Texas, it also has a lot of tips for smoking and
grilling.

The one thing I liked about Myron's book is it is am easy read. I have never met him, but it does impart a genuineness that he portrays on TV and in videos I have seen of him on You Tube. Someday I will either take his class or meet him to see if my hypothesis is true.

I absolutely love Dr. BBQ's books, Rob Walsh's Legends of Texas BB-Q, Paul Kirk's Championship BB-Q, and Smoke and Spice, but I think my all time favorite book in general has to be Mike Mill's Peace, Love, and BB-Q.
