Description
Cheryl and Bill Jamison's path-breaking Smoke and Spice was the first, and remains by far the best-selling, book on real barbecue - slow-cooking over smoke - for home cooks. This new and expanded edition appears on the twentieth anniversary of the classic book's first edition. It has two key features. First, there are 50 new recipes, including meat dishes, such as Molasses-Brined Pork Butt, Lemon-Coriander Chicken, and Brisket Frito Pie, as well as sauces, sides, and desserts, like Peppery Sweet Onion Sauce, Cornbread Fritters, and Chipotle Cherry Cobbler. Second, it now contains cover- to-cover color photography and page design. The photographs show details of backyard-smoking techniques, delectable views of finished foods from the smoker, and atmospheric shots of barbecue joints and of the legendary pitmasters who cook in them.With 450 recipes from each of the U.S.'s best barbecue regions, each recipe expertly perfected and fine-tuned by the Jamisons, amusing anecdotes and tall tales from the colorful world of 'Q, and take-it-to-the-bank advice on how to use any kind of smoker (as well as how to smoke-cook on a conventional grill), this expanded and richly photographed new edition is certain to usher in a new generation of backyard cooks devoted to real barbecue.

Bill grew up in Texas, understanding from birth that smoked brisket was the food of gods. Cheryl grew up in rural Illinois, where 'barbecue' was a Sloppy Joe, so she had some catching up to do. For two decades they have lived in Tesuque, New Mexico, just outside of Santa Fe, in a converted adobe dairy barn shaded by fruit trees.Authors of fifteen cookbook and travel guides, Cheryl and Bill Jamison write with passion and wit about barbecue, American home cooking, the food and culture of the Southwest, and tropical beach travel.
