America’s Best Ribs: Tips and Recipes for Easy, Lip-Smacking, Pull-Off-the-Bone, Pass-the-Sauce, Championship-Quality BBQ Ribs at Home

Got a new book from Ardie Davis (aka Remus Powers PHB) and Paul Kirk.

America’s Best Ribs: Tips and Recipes for Easy, Lip-Smacking, Pull-Off-the-Bone, Pass-the-Sauce, Championship-Quality BBQ Ribs at Home

Both of these BBQ gentlemen have put out multiples of books before such as:

The Kansas City Barbeque Society Cookbook, 25th Anniversary Edition

America’s Best BBQ: 100 Recipes from America’s Best Smokehouses, Pits, Shacks, Rib Joints, Roadhouses, and Restaurants

Back Cover:

This one is all about RIBS… Delicious…mouthwatering …goodness that is ribs. No boiling needed……….

Ribs is the one thing everyone absolutely loves to make on the grill. I get asked more questions about ribs than any other meat.

They cover off all types of ribs in this book: Pork, Beef, Bison, Mutton and lamb. The recipes are varied and there are step by step instructions on how to make ribs that will make you look like a Champion right in your own backyard! Plus desserts & side dishes .. really yummy side dishes like this corn recipe:

I really enjoy looking through BBQ books that have lots of great but not perfect pictures. Completely staged pictures with perfect drops of sauce really don’t float my boat. I prefer pictures that showcase real BBQ the not so perfect kind. I love the fact that real pictures are used in this book. There are lots of great pictures used from a variety of BBQ Contests and gatherings.  Many people from around the BBQ circuit and BBQ Legends like Pat Burke.

There is a community feel to this book that is terrific. Lots of contributions from many folks in the BBQ community. In addition there are a ton of recipes that  anyone from the inexperienced to the competitor will really use.  The book will be available for sale May 1, 2012 . I think it would make an ideal gift for any avid griller and a wonderful Fathers day gift.

 

 

So you want to be a competitive BBQ’er? Get this first.

My Review.

Its 108 pages of  about all things starting  competition BBQ. It is an introduction to the world of Competition BBQ and some of the pitfalls to avoid. What they don’t tell you is how funny this little book jam packed with valuable information is. I loved reading the stories from George’s point of view. Don’ t miss the psychological impacts of competition chicken overload. I have been there. I really related to these stories. Or even the sage advice offered on crotchel area issues on page 21.

This is not a serious book by any means. However there is some really serious decent advice and its an easy and fun read. If you are just beginning to contemplate starting a competition BBQ team you really should read this first.

You can buy a copy of the book here right on their site: www.watgbbq.com

Additionally you can always catch up with George and his teams adventures on the blog Who are those guys?  Competition BBQ Team Blog.
