Monk, be warned
. The reading of this book may very likely lead down a long delicious road (obsession?). For years I had ruined good food on a poor cheapie grill. I ranted, raved, burned, and was ready to just give up.
Finally, I bought a quality grill, Weber Gen-C. I didn't ruin food as often, but my projects were just plain grilled. My first grilling cookbook was HTG
, a gift from wife a few years ago. That's when it began.
I have since used HTG
so much, that pages are falling out, it's all smudged up, and I cherish this book. After HTG
, I have most of Steven's other books. I have bought other classics as well such as Smoke&Spice
, Webers Big Book
, A Man, a Can, and a Grill
, etc. You get the picture. HTG
is so easily instructive, you will begin to believe that the majority of foods are better on the grill, and that you're just the one to grill it!
Good luck if you follow this path. A world of tastes and toys (grills, smokers, books, and tools) awaits. You have been warned
