This is supose to be good reading. Not only Recipies

I love Mike Mills' book and will be posting something about that on my blog in the next couple of days, but I also enjoy Paul Kirk's and DrBBQ's books, a few of the Steven Raichlen books (although he focuses on grilling rather than q'ing, I think), and many, many others.....Check out this thread about bbq cookbooks for some ideas of what others have said, too....

I made my list from several older threads here on the Forum. The top ones then were:

Peace Love and Barbeque *
Paul Kirk's Championship BBQ *
Dr BBQ's Bif Time Barbeque Cookbook *
Legends of Texas Barbeque Book
Smoke and Spice *
BBQ USA
John Willingham's World Champion Bar-B-Q
The Barbeque America Cookbook
Barbeque Bible
Barbeque Secrets
Grand Barbeque
Smokestack Lightning *

It's hard to rank these ... some are more recipes, some techniques, some more history. I have 5 (*) so far and hope to get them all.

Regards,
Tom B

I've got several, but the one that got me hooked was "The Hardcore BBQ Book - Legendary American Recipes" by Patricia Colarco. My wife picked this little (62pages) jewel up for me years ago out of the $1 bin at 1/2 Price Books. Every recipe followed from this book has been damn good. It's mainly NC/SC/KY/TN/GA styles.

I just finished reading Mike Mills' book (Peace Love and BBQ) and thought it was great. I loved the stories and reading about regular people who just wanted to produce a good product.

Enjoy the read.

What a coincidence. I just ordered Peace, Love & Barbecue. Cant wait.

Of course if I hit the Mega Millions tonight, I'll be reading my copy on St John or maybe St Croix. BeerGuy & I went in together on some tix. We have a dream of starting a charter fishing/barbecue/brew pub joint right on the water somewhere. St Somewhere!

No specialty store with garlic?

I will visit a spot like the one Beerguy and you dream! I also would love to come stripper fishing with you guys, seriously though. I organize about six charters a year. First was this past Friday.

End of Hijack!

Peace Love and BBQ is an excellent book, but I think over time my favorite book has become The Legends of Texas BBQ. Covers the history of Texas BBQ with some excellent receipes.
