Praise For A Man, a Can, a Grill

"Twenty years ago, the first chicken I ever cooked on a grill burst into flames before I opened the lid to turn it. I wish A Man, a Can, a Grill had been there before that happened. Thanks to David Joachim, I'll never set a chicken on fire again."--Don Mauer, author of A Guy's Guide to Great Eating

"These easy, flavorful recipes for the grill are streamlined and smart. Real food--so good that no one will ever guess your secret is in the can."--Andrew Schloss, author of Cooking with Three Ingredients and Dinner's Ready
