John Madden has done a great job of collecting some great recipes from around NFL stadiums where tailgating has become an art and a tradition. His no nonsense, just tell it like it is, book gives great recipes with entertaining sidelights about people who tailgate and love to grill. Reading through the recipes is also helpful for the beginner as tips abound from John and others who helped make the book possible. This is a book for people who love to cook outside, and love to cook beef and pork. Good chicken recipes and soups also. It may not be the best recipe book for vegetarians and side salad nuts, but for most meat eating people, it's the greatest! Whether you listen to John as an announcer of football games or not, you'll appreciate his good advice and candor on FOOD.
This book is the Ultimate large gathering for food entertainment, it's a gutsy recipe book not for the faint hearted. I have tried a number of recipie's and found them easy to follow. ALthough some of the items are not what we are used to in the UK it was fun sourcing the correct ingredients, this ultimately made it a lot more enjoyable when cooking the relevent recipe. I would highly recommend this gastronomic book rather than some of the more well known chef's books i've seen, this is a MAN'S COOKBOOK. GREAT
