Book Review: Smoke & Spice

Probably one of the best BBQ books you can pick up to help kick start a new BBQ hobby, or… even just give an existing hobby some additional ideas, is the book Smoke & Spice by Bill and Cheryl Jamison.  The book is under $15 and highly worth the investment.  Ran-Dawg, the guy who taught me a good bit of what I know, is the guy that first recommended it to me.  It’s a massive book, filled with tons of great recipes for rubs, mops, sauces and marinades that can be used on pork, beef, poultry and fish.  You name it, it’s pretty much in the book.  The book also has tons of great recipes for appetizers, salads, pastas, pizzas, side dishes, breads and desserts.  Though most recipes involve a smoker at some point during the process, there are some that don’t, such as a lot of the great side dishes.  I really got a lot out of the book when I was a complete newbie because of the insight the authors give you on the basics.  The authors don’t assume you’re a pro.  They assume you’re someone that simply wants to learn a bit about BBQing and give you a TON of info to do just that.  Definitely pick up a copy if you don’t have one.  Mine is stained all over with sauces and beer (beer that was being consumed while making those sauces…) and I guarantee yours will be too 🙂
