The long awaited BBQ book featuring the Bacon Explosion is going to be available May 4, 2010 on Amazon !
The grill geeks Jason Day and Aaron Chronister became friends over the flames of the grill – they have been teammates on the award winning competitive BBQ team, Burnt Finger BBQ for years. Barbecuing and competing together, they realized they were a match made in hog heaven.
I have had the chance to review the book and it covers so much. The cover with its shot of a Bacon Explosion will get your mouth watering. It only gets better and better. While I believe that there could have been more pictures the content is solid.
Something that is really unique is a section that states that included with the book is a password necessary for accessing the members only area of the companion website run by the authors. BBQAddicts.com is full of additional recipes and ideas that coincide with the recipes and information within the book. (my password was on page 223) Thats even more value for the price of the book!
I also appreciate the beer and wine pairing recommendations with many of the recipes. Its a great idea.
Here are the Chapters in the book:
Chapter 1- Equipment Methods and Techniques
Chapter 2- Bacon
Chapter 3- Parties and Tailgates
Chapter 4- Burger Heaven
Chapter 5- Fatties for every occasion
Chapter 6- The Liquor Shelf
Chapter 7- International Barbecue
Chapter 8- Leftovers
Chapter 9- Wives Girlfriends and mistresses
There are lots of recipes and fun anecdotes to review. What a great book to own or to give as a gift. I HIGHLY recommend this book for the recipes. It is not just some glossy book that will sit on the shelf and look pretty. The recipes are clear easy to understand and adaptable to any grill.
A while back I had the opportunity to interview Jason about the book and the whole phenomenon that is the Bacon Explosion:
Ill be posting that interview on the day the book is available for sale in May. It was a great interview.
