Texas Backyard BBQ is a collection of 117 recipes and 62 color pictures. There are recipes for Rubs & Sauces, Red Meats, Pork, Poultry, Seafood, Vegetarian, Side Dishes, Desserts, and Drinks. This is not just a cookbook for grilling meat - it includes everything you might want to serve at a backyard BBQ party.
Each recipe was personally prepared by me and tasted by many hungry friends.
Great Simple Recipies
I have made a lot of these recipes and I have never had unhappy guests.
Only 99 cents, but still not worth it.
This is a horrible BBQ book. It includes recipes for Rib Eye Steak (Rib eye steak, salt and pepper), baked potato (poke with holes and bake). The beef ribs recipe has you cook in a smoker, then place on the grill. That might be fine for a business, but I don't know any backyard BBQ'ers that want to fire up a grill and a smoker for ribs. You can cook ribs on one or the other. How about a recipe for that?
And how can any Texas Backyard grilling enthusiast actually recommend a propane gas grill or smoker! Cooking with gas is using a stove outside. No skill, and very little flavor.
This is a poorly written book that does not address the backyard, weekend cook. There is no discussion for techniques and tips for grilling using charcoal, and many of the recipes are written for gas grills (preheat grill to high).
