If you liked HTG you'll love BBQ USA... I find HTG to be the perfect begginer or entry book outlining techniques and what not and you will find somemany more intriguing and unique recipes in all of SR's books such as Beer Can Chicken, Sauces & Rubs and BBQ USA

Great book................I really enjoy venturing out with some new ideas. This book brings in recipes from all over.
It will take me a long time to try everything that has grabbed my attention in this one.

BBQ USA is incredible. It's over 750 pages long, has hundreds of recipes, and it's got tons of restaurant info as well. While it doesn't have step-by-step illustrations like HTG, I don't find that I need them.

I've owned about 30 BBQ cookbooks and videos. HTG is the best one I've seen for the beginner/novice. However, if you're more experienced, BBQ USA is the logical next step. Plus, it's got tons of addresses for the most famous BBQ restaurants in the country, which is going to make my next trip stateside a joy- I'll get to plot my route around what BBQ places I want to visit!

I own a copy of the Jamiesons' Smoke and Spice cokbook, and for a while I thought it was the finest BBQ book around. Not anymore- BBQ USA just replaced it.

There are several other threads discussing the books out there as well but I'll add my 2 cents here too. First I own and love all Steve's books. The are all great reads and full of easy to follow info.
Personally BBQ USA is my least a cookbook. I keep it on my coffee table and its moreso than the others is a great read.
I like the recipes in the others better.
They are still all great books and deserve a spot of reverence in your house.

I own all of Steven's books except BBQUSA. I just aquired HTG this week only because Costco had it for $12 and some change. I love the Bible and Sauces Rubs and Marinades. As soon as I can find a deal on BBQUSA I'll buy it, just to have it. I think I'll use it like Grand does. I always reccomend Steven's books to my customers, especially HTG to folks new to the grilling way of life. My other go to book is Paul Kirks "Championship Barbeque"
Weber "Q", Weber Performer, Weber 22.5" Bar-B-Kettle

I oringally bought HTG last year, a few weeks ago i bought the bible, bbq usa, sauces rubs, and beer can chicken for around 50$ shipped from amazon. For the price you cant beat it.

Way to go s0ber 8) . Personally I don't think you can go wrong with any of Steven's books. My wife says that I find fault with everything cause I'm a perfectionist. Still haven't found a bad dish yet, but tryin' real hard. :wink: You'll enjoy BBQ USA too.

My first book of SR's was The bbq Bible and I coudn't put it down
It still sits by the recliner so I can look at it at my leisure.
Since then I have bought all the rest of SR's books including BBQ USA.
They are all spectacular.
I don't believe you can go wrong with any of them.
My advice is run to your nearest bookstore and pick it up.
You won't be disapointed an informative read.
