Amazon Review

Ever grill a banana? Want to grill a peach, but not sure what to do next? You need Weber's Art of the Grill from those nice people at Weber who brought us the covered kettle charcoal grill, and now a full array of gas-fired outdoor grills. It's not just about grilling hamburgers anymore, and this lush book is here to prove how wide a range of cooking opportunities exist under the cover of your grill.

We start with the essentials, the differences between direct and indirect cooking, and move right into those basic sauces that give grilled foods the piquancy we so adore: "Honey-Ginger Peach Sauce", "Dijon Wine Sauce", "Hot Pepper Vinegar Sauce", "Weber's Tangy Barbecue Sauce". Then there's a menu planner. The Wine Country Lunch, for example, includes "Grilled Tuna Nicoise", "Butterflied Chicken under Bricks", and "Grilled Peaches with Fresh Cherry Sauce". Business Casual includes "Caponata Bruschetta", "Smoky Lobster Tails" and "Corn on the Cob", and "S'Mores All Grown Up".

The chapters break out as Starters, Meats, Chicken and Poultry, Fish and Seafood, Vegetable Main Dishes, Sides and Salads, and Desserts--all of it based on grilled foods of one kind (the grilled bread of Bruschetta) or another (the grilled butternut squash of "Grilled Butternut Squash and Ginger Soup with Spiced Peanuts"). This is not a snooty, party-food book loaded with recipes you'll never want to try. Not with the likes of "Prime Rib with Texas Dry Rub" or "Moroccan Butterflied Leg of Lamb" tucked between the book's covers. Author Purviance's central theme through all the recipes is to make it easy to get that terrific grilled flavour on the table. He knows that given just a little exposure to working with a grill--and admittedly, there is a little bit of a learning curve to get to the comfort zone--any cook who likes to eat great tasting food will keep coming back.

With Weber's Art of the Grill in hand, you may find yourself outside in the middle of winter firing up the grill to bring those mid-summer flavours on home. And who could blame you? --Schuyler Ingle


Readers will be amazed at the variety of food that can be cooked on the home grill in Weber's Art of the Grill. Chronicle and the folks at Weber's Grill have teamed up to bring recipes from around the country to the backyard grill. Grillers will enjoy the not-so-standard read meats such as Prime Rib with Texas Dry Rub, Provencal Rack of Lamb and Smoky Pulled Pork Sandwich, and they will happily set Diablo Shrimp and Angel Hair Pasta, Polenta with Black Bean Salad and Green Chili Sauce and Caribbean Swordfish Steaks with Mango Salsa on the picnic table. Included are advanced grilling technique tips, recipes for sauces and beautiful illustrations. -- Publishers Weekly

Weber's Art of Grill turns up the heat on outdoor entertaining, providing recipes and techniques from one of the best-loved grilling sources. The photographs by Tim Turner will have you salivating. -- American Homestyle & Gardening

5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensible for the dedicated barbecue cook 4 Jun 2001
A comprehensive barbecuing guide full of delicious recipes. Of all the barbecue books we've bought, we turn to this one first. There's a wide range of recipes for starters, main meals and desserts. The recipes are easy to follow and every one we've tried has been a winner. There's a wealth of information on how to barbecue, sauces, what wine to serve . . . But a word of advice - this is aimed at gas barbecue owners. And once you've tried a gas barbecue, we promise you'll never go back to charcoal!

Thanks for this book. I have a number of the weber books and this one is as good as some of the others. The illustrations are great, and the recipes are so easy yo follow. I cook on my BBQ all year round, so need plenty of inspiration. All in all a great book, and a great service provided, thank you very much.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good if you have a gas Weber 22 July 2013
By Frantic
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As a Bar-B-Q novice who has just purchased a Weber Kettle, it was disappointing that this book is mainly about using a gas Weber. I had hoped for useful hints and tips in using the Kettle solid fuel version. This uses techniques which would be difficult to replicate on the Kettle. Otherwise, some interesting flavours and marinade options.

5.0 out of 5 stars Barbeque Lovers Must Own This Book 4 April 2000
By caseybean - Published on Amazon.com
Weber's Art of the Grill is a must for cooks who enjoy barbequeing. The book is easy to follow, the recipes utilize fresh, quality ingredients, and the pictures are outstanding-you know exactly how your creation should look. Mouth-watering recipes are included for beef, poultry, fish, vegetable side dishes, vegetarian entrees, and desserts. Unique and absolutely delicious recipes are also included for sauces to serve with the entrees. A wine and/or beer selection is included at the end of each main course recipe. This book is worth every penny-it's hardcover and the pages are thick, not flimsy, the color photos throughout are enticing, and the recipes are easy to make, yet incredibly delicious. You'll feel like a gourmet cook. I've owned the book since December and use it weekly, and now I can't imagine not owning it. It is, by far, the definitive in barbeque cookbooks.
I'd also like to add that if you're a serious barbeque chef Weber Grills are the best. There's no comparison.

3.0 out of 5 stars WARNING! This book is for GAS grills! 9 Mar 2000
By Vaughn Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I must have missed something somewhere, but nowhere in the description of this book did I see any reference to it being specially written for gas - not charcoal - Weber grills. To quote the introduction: "All the recipes in this book were developed for and tested on Weber Summit Gas Barbecues."
Sure, it mentions "real" grills in passing in the introduction, but makes no concession to them when describing how to cook the (delicious-looking) recipes. Instructions to heat the grill to "high" "medium" or "low" aren't much use when you're fiddling with the vents and piling on the briquettes.
I'm sure most of these recipes will work fine on a charcoal Weber, but it's a little disoncerting to discover a book I thought would be tailor made for my backyard faithful was intended for a far different, and more high-tech, machine entirely.
In summary, it's a great book if you've got a gas grill, a "nice" one otherwise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mouth-Watering Weber Wonders 13 Dec 1999
By George Soule - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you've recently suffered through cookbooks trumpeting the wonders of such culinary Hindenbergs as Bulgarian-Icelandic fusion cooking, braised tripe puree or pork sushi, take note of this wonderfully-written superbly photographed guide to Weber grilling. The recipes are nothing short of sumptuous, and they don't require a Ph.D. in the culinary arts to prepare. Every toothsome detail in Art Of The Grill will fire up your dormant salivary glands (and perhaps other glands as well). My favorite recipes were the sublime Moroccan Butterflied Leg of Lamb and the Grilled Tuna Niçoise, both of which caused minor disturbances at a recent cookout. This paean to the once-humble Weber is filled with so many delectable recipes that choosing one for your next outing by the Weber is no mean feat. By the way who is this mysterious Chef Jamie Purviance? After salivating your way through a few of Chef Purviance's magical recipes, you'll pack up your pots and pans to make a pilgrimage to his California test kitchen. Make no mistake, the tall toque-wearing Purviance is the backyard's answer to David Bouley.

4.0 out of 5 stars It really is the ART of the grill 27 Jun 2002
By James Navilio - Published on Amazon.com
I purchased Weber's Art of the Grill at the same time as Weber's Big Book of Grilling. I feel that with this book they went for a more upscale level of grilling which is fine. I would recommend this book to anyone new to grilling or an old pro. It is well layed out and the pictures are of high quality. As in the other Weber cookbooks, the format is easy to use and well thought out. If you are looking for a more "beginner" Weber grilling book check out Weber's Big Book of Grilling, you can't go wrong with it. I was glad I purchased both.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've never been into cooking, but.... 17 Jun 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
...since I got this book I've been grilling up a storm. I've tried more than half the recipies in this book and every one of them has been exceptional. I've never really cooked before, never had the patience to follow recipies but these are very easy to follow and require easy-to-find ingredients. My wife is amazed. She can't believe I'm the same guy she's been kicking out of the kitchen for years.
