Have Tongs, Will Travel
Guided by the simple conviction that if something tastes good baked, fried, sauteed, or steamed, a pit boss somewhere in this land has figured out how to make it even better over a live fire, Steven Raichlen logs tens of thousands of miles to take you on a tour of America's barbecuing
Finger Lickin' or highfalutin', smoked, rubbed, mopped, or slathered, the 425 recipes in "BBQ USA" are where fire meets obsession, and the results are smoky perfection.
