Fire and Smoke Cookbook Review


 About the Book

Grill like a pro with the expert recipes and tips in Fire and Smoke.

World champion pitmaster Chris Lilly combines the speed of grilling with the smoky flavors of low-and-slow barbecue for great meals any night of the week, no fancy equipment required. Cook trout in a cast-iron skillet nestled right in smoldering coals for a crispy yet tender and flaky finish. Roast chicken halves in a pan on a hot grill, charring the skin while capturing every bit of delicious juice. Infuse delicious smoke flavors into fruits and vegetables, even cocktails and desserts. Fire and Smoke gives you 100 great reasons to fire up your grill or smoker tonight. 

My Review

What a fantastic book! I got this book thinking that my husband would enjoy it more and I was totally surprised! This book is full of great recipes from cocktails, salads, pizza, steaks, and desserts! There are a ton of ideas in this book that are delicious and basic ingredients. In my house meat is almost in every meal so I try to get creative. We also love to grill and this book has some great new ideas on grilling everything! Even pizza. The first part of the week is a detailed explanation about different types of grills and smokers-pictures included. Also, in the back of the book is a ton of recipes for spice mixes. Many books like this seem to over the top or boring but this book is great and will be used a lot. 
Here are just a few of my favorites: Peach Sangria, Grilled Lemonade, Pulled Pork Sliders, Cedar Plank Salmon, Pulled Pork Potato, Grilled Peach Pies, and Espresso BBQ Sauce.     

Highly recommend!!
