5.0 out of 5 stars The Title Says it All! 3 Aug 2009
There are more BBQ recipe books out there than you can shake a stick at... But believe me... this one is very different.

Recently I bought a Weber Gas BBQ, a really good one, but after using one of their charcoal grills for many years I was totally disillusioned. Dull, flavorless, limp offerings are the only way to describe my early efforts. It seems only after you have invested your small fortune in a gas BBQ do you learn the truth... You really can taste the difference.

Now I could have given up with it at that point, but I didn't.... I started looking for information on what I was doing wrong. Naturally you turn to the shelves full of recipe books, but that seems to be all they are. You might find the odd page or two at the beginning of the standard recipe book describing the differences between various grills, but really very little on how to get the best out of them.

This book is as much about technique as it is about recipes and that is precisely what I was looking for... not that the recipes are short on the ground either.. And they cover the world over... Just let the book fall open at any page and you will find something to inspire you... guaranteed.

The style of the book is also superb, from the wonderful photo's to Steve's stories around each of the 500 recipe's and backgrounds to the cultures he has explored in his global trek of Grilling nations. No dry, humorless list of instructions here... Each recipe is described as a tale of how he found it and its history.

One possible let down in the book is lack of any Metric measurements... perhaps the publishers should consider this for a future edition as I believe the audience for this book is far wider than the USA.

Even if you never BBQ this book has so much to offer in terms of how to prepare and enjoy food... If I had to choose just one cook book in my life this would be it hands down.

Forget the rest... This really is the Bible.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not enough pictures 28 May 2013
By bella
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my husbands birthday as he likes to think he's a bit of a whizz on the BBQ... Wanted some more recipes for him to try out and this seemed to fit the job and came with good reviews.
The American measurements are easy enough to translate so that's not a problem but the downside is the lack of photos / colour in the book. The recipes do look good though and we are keen to try some out whenever we get some sunshine :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Made my BBQ excel 27 Jun 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Over a 14 or 15 year period I must have bought hundred's and hundred's of books from and then The Barbecue Bible is maybe the 3rd to move me to write a review.....

I'm sat on the couch now, enjoying the smug, satisfied feeling of a successuful BBQ for friends and family. It's a nice feeling.

I really enjoy bbq grilling but don't know much about cooking. I suppose it's a man thing. Fire, beer, all adds up to testosterone.

My wife bought this book for my birthday and it is a monster. There are hundreds of receipie's in this book and for my first bbq after receiving the book I picked three to try. My selection criteria was not exactly scientific....good photo, not many ingredients - let's give it a go.

I can't recommend this book highly enough. I'm no cook but today I served up a brilliant meal that everyone loved and I'm thrilled.

5.0 out of 5 stars The only BBQ book you'll ever need! 27 Sep 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Purchased this for my husband who uses a standard Weber and a smoker. He loves the rubs and the sauces. I love the marinades and the smoking directions! We have had rave reviews on our BBQ food since we started using this book. We went to a friend's BBQ and had the best ribs outside the States I'd ever tasted! I asked him what his secret was and he whipped out the BBQ Bible! He wouldn't tell me which recipe he used though! A friend from the States had sent it to him as a gift when he purchased his new gas Q. Our rainy UK weather isn't stopping us as many of the recipes are suitable for the oven. In fact, we let our neighbour borrow the book and he made four recipes out of it and his family loved them all including his wife whom I suspect really did the cooking!

The book is easy to use and most of the ingredients are probably in your cupboard right now. The BBQ Bible goes well with beer and wine...highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars So pleased I bought this book 16 Jun 2011
I bought this book after returning another BBQ book I had ordered and was disappointed with. Not so this book, there is such a wide choice of recipes. If you are only going to buy one BBQ book I would recommend this one it has everything you need to know from choosing the right BBQ for you, right the way through to puddings! I also have his Sauces,Rubs and Marinades which I also love.
