"Because KCBS is thrives on the groundswell of members, it makes total sense for the book's recipes to come from individuals and teams that compete on the circuit. And what a collection it is! ... What I liked most about the book was its homey vibe. … see full wiki

Down home barbeque

  • Jul 27, 2010
From Spam Candy (smoked over cherry wood) to Grilled Ahi Tuna Steaks, this eclectic collection of 200 recipes from the barbecue competition circuit reflects down-home Americana.

While there are plenty of recipes for barbecue sauce, lots of dishes call for "your favorite." These cooks use shortcuts wherever they want. Elk for Dummies uses a jar of beef gravy and a can of cranberry sauce and you are not expected to make your own pizza crust for the Hearty Stromboli, although there is a recipe for pizza dough - grilled, too.

On the side, in addition to the beans, coleslaws, cornbread salads and cheesy potatoes, there's Memphis-Style Barbecue Spaghetti, Grilled Garlic Tomatoes, Grilled Corn (gussied up or plain), Flying Pig BLT Salad, Green Bean Casserole, Couscous Salad and lots more.

There's all the barbecued pork, beef and chicken you could want, plus BBQ Smoked Meatloaf, Korean Fire Meat, Sausage from scratch, Cedar-Planked Salmon with Whiskey-Maple Glaze. Desserts range from traditional to imaginative (Grilled Banana Split, Bourbon Sweet Potato Pie), and a chapter of marinades, rubs, bastes and sauces will fire up the taste buds. Every recipe comes with a little background on its originator, including a snapshot.

Folksy and well organized, the authors round things out with several chapters on terminology, tips and contest advice. This book should see plenty of summer use.
