I have the bbq bible sauces book and I have found several good recipes in there I will normally try them as they are printed then alter them to my own taste after that.

Got 'em both. Use the Raichlen book quite a bit, BBQ Nation not so much. I found the "Dr. BBQ" books to be much better.

Yeah, I got them both too. I kinda like "Barbecue Nation". It has some neat stuff in it. Of course, I taped a blank sheet of paper on the front cover and wrote "Grilling Nation" in big letters.

That way I remind myself not to scream at the writer, who can't hear me anyway.

I had to get up and go to the bookshelf. I just realized I don't own any BBQ books. That has got to be a Sin against all that is good. I think I will see what books a million has on the shelfs tomorrow. Really want to check out Dr. BBQ's latest.

I highly recommend any of Dr. BBQ's (Ray Lampe) books. Also Peace, Love & Barbeqcue by Mike Mills is a great book.

Just got a copy of Smokestack Lightening from Amazon this week. Thumbed thru it and it looks really good. Lots of reading, just a few recipes in the back.

Happy Birthday Bro. In addition to my "Smoke & Spice"...I just added "Paul Kirk's Championship BBQ Sauces", and "Backyard BBQ The Art of Smokology" to my fledgeling bbq cookbook library. I'll definitely check out your birthday presents.

"Where There's Smoke, There's Flavor" is a good one...
And I have the BBQ Bible, but I think that BBQ USA (also by Raichlen) is 10X better.
