Pitmaster: Recipes, Techniques, and Barbecue Wisdom is a new cookbook from Andy Husbands and Chris Hart.
Pitmaster is the definitive guide to becoming a barbecue aficionado and top-shelf cook, whether you're new to the grill or a seasoned vet. Recipes begin with basics, like cooking Memphis-style ribs, and expand to smoking whole hogs North Carolina style.
There is no single path to becoming a pitmaster. Barbecue lovers are equally inspired by restaurants with a commitment to regional traditions, competition barbecue champions, families with a multi-generational tradition of roasting whole hogs, and even amateur backyard fanatics.This is a great cookbook to have with summer coming up and lot of outdoor cooking planned. It goes beyond just recipes and helps you understand the techniques used to cook to perfect barbecue.
