It's also unfortunately out-of-print, so it's $100 a copy these days. A good
alternative is his BBQ 25. It has the most important recipes of Serious
Barbecue in a more concise form.

After that it would probably be Chris Lilly's book.

You are not jokin about the $100 thing... I got this book for maybe $32 give or take and have had it for years and still use it quit often... BUT $100

Yeah, it's crazy town, but it's also a testament to how good a book it is.
I've seen it for as much as $182.

I should mention that the Big Ranch, Big City Cookbook is an outstanding
book as well. It's not pure BBQ/grilling, but it's well worth the investment. I
reviewed it here.

I echo the Big Bob Gibson's BBQ Book sentiment. Lots of good stories, pretty pictures, and practical recipes.

I haven't had a chance to flip through Myron Mixon's book, but after so many recommendations it's on my "to get" list.

We usually recycle books at our local Half Price Books and get store credits, (I still collect LP's and always looking for CD's) and have gotten many of the Q books mentioned above.

For the helluvit I did a search for APL's Serious Barbecue and it is currently listed at $129.99 through HPB's network of resellers. I had ordered 3 books last Saturday and the last one just came in from Georgia-

Just picked this one up last week at Barnes and Noble for sticker price.
