"Ribs Ribs Outrageous Ribs" - Steven Raichlen
"Sauces Rubs & Marinades" - Steven Raichlen

There are 3 other Weber books by Jamie Purviance but I can't remember the titles off the top of my head.

I have a 50-year-old barbecue book from Better Homes & Gardens magazine...does that count?

I don't know how many of these below are still available, and I'm not recommending them, just adding as they're on my shelf. (You've listed my favorites already.)

Barbecue books can be interesting, and I have quite a collection. However, IMHO, few of them have what I'd expect from a good book on the subject: tested and accurately proofed recipes AND methods/techniques with DETAILS accounting for differences in popular cooker types. Also, some of the MOST popular and interesting books actually have the MOST recipe mistakes and incomplete method discriptions. They're just more interesting because of the personalities quoted, etc. I seriously doubt that very many real secrets are ever devulged, however, so buyer beware. Anyway, here's a few more:

Browne R. - The Barbecue America Cookbook
Davis A. - The Great BBQ Sauce Book
Purviance J. - Weber's Charcoal Grilling
Griffith D. - Celebrating Barbecue
Thompson F. - Barbecue Nation

James, I wasn't sure. Sorry I blew up.

I have added the suggestions above to the list.

Thanks for taking the time to create such an extensive list.

Another by Jamie Purviance - Weber's "Real Grilling"

"Mastering the Grill" Andrew Schloss and David Joachim - goes into the science and mechanics of grilling - a BIG book with over 300 recipes, tips and techniques - shows method for gas, charcoal and wood in "mastering the technique" which preceeds the recipes in each category

I have a book or two from that list. I enjoy tweaking a recipe after following "their" directions the first time to make it more like mine.

When I get some time, I'll compare it to my list that I current "own". Total is 89 at this point (I keep my Amazon wish list updated and the family sends 'em to me).

What's more important, something I've been trying to figure out, is more of a rating system for them, not just a list. Some of them I read once, won't open again. Some have great BBQ stories, but their recipes aren't great. Some are just exceptional.

Good idea. Maybe we can do some kind of a Brethern ranking system.
