My copy of Wicked Good Barbecue arrived earlier in the week. I've been looking forward to this book since I first hear about it on the BBQ Brethren forum last fall. I pre-ordered as soon as that option was available. Sometimes when you look forward to something for that long when it finally happens it can be anti-climactic. That is definitely not the case with Wicked Good Barbecue! As soon as the book arrived I flipped through it and was thrilled with the amount and quality of information and recipes. Andy and Chris are well known on the competition BBQ circuit and are world champions, so I expected some good information on competition BBQ, but I didn't expect the depth and quality of the information. I've already picked up a couple of things that I will try out before our competition season starts. I also didn't expect the creativity in the recipes. Whether you're a BBQ novice or a veteran competition cook there is something in this book for you. Besides the more...
This is not your ordinary barbecue cookbook! Chris Hart and Andy Husbands share the secrets of their award winning chicken, ribs and brisket. The book is chockful of amazing, unique recipes for appetizers, mains, sides, desserts and even drinks. How can you resist recipes with titles like Wicked Pulled Pork, 7 Layer Dip of Disbelief, BBQ Scotch Eggs, Six Day Bacon of the Gods, and Pecan Pie Stuffed Cheesecake?? The layout is clean and crisp, and loaded with photos. The photography by Ken Goodman is some of the best food porn out there.
Highly recommended. I am a competition cook myself, and my team competes against iQue on a regular basis. These guys know their stuff. The book is also very clear and accessible, covering complex recipes in depth. If you want to know how the pros cook, this is the book to get. You should be warned though: these are professional recipes for best-in-class food, not quick snacks you can toss on the grill. There is a chapter on over-the-top recipes, including one dish that will take a week to prepare. It will be worth your time and effort though, whether you want to compete or just amaze your friends.
A lot of ingredients used in competition cooking cannot be found at the supermarket, and it's great that the authors included a guide on where to find key ingredients and tools.
