Books and Videos
Planet Barbecue – Stephen Raichlen
Typical Raichlen book – Great recipes and stories about their origins as well as a history lesson or two about BBQ both inside and outside the US.
How to Grill – Stephen Raichlen
BBQ USA – Stephen Raichlen
Another of the Raichlen series – this one specifically for US BBQ. Great recipe variations from around the US.
The Barbecue! Bible – Stephen Raichlen
I think this is the one that started the Raichlen series. If you are new to BBQ and want to get a running start, this is a great reference. Like all the Raichlen books though, everything is slanted towards charcoal or gas – none of the recipes/methods are pellet-specific.
Raichlen’s Indoor Grilling– Stephen Raichlen
Not a bad book, I just couldn’t get into doing “BBQ” indoors. I live in Oregon and you either grill/BBQ when it’s wet, or only do it a few months out of the year. Now that I have my MAK – this book is gathering dust.
Barbecue! Sauces, Rubs and Marinades – Stephen Raichlen
Most (if not all) of these are covered throughout the other Raichlen books – this one just puts them all in one place.
Backyard BBQ The Art of Smokology – Richard W. McPeake
I found this interesting and informative. More in the science of BBQ and not so much in the recipes themselves.
Paul Kirk’s Championship Barbecue Sauces – Paul Kirk
Paul Kirk’s Championship Barbecue – Paul Kirk
