With Summer and Father’s Day almost upon us, I thought I’d recommend a few grilling cookbooks that I use frequently. Any of these cookbooks would make a great gift for the Grill Master or the Father in your life, or buy them for yourself (like I did)!
Weber’s Real Grilling by Jamie Purviance
This cookbook is filled with over 200 original recipes (each with a color photo) that were inspired by grilled foods all over the world. The recipes are easy and delicious, such as Filet Mignon with Lemon-Parsley Butter, Jerk Pork Tenderloin with Glazed Sweet Potatoes, Cedar-Planked Salmon with Honey-Lime dressing, Smoky Sweet Baked Beans and many more.
Williams-Sonoma Essentials of Grilling
More than 130 recipes from around the world (each with a photo), like Carne Asada with Blackened Corn, Hickory Grill-Smoked Chicken, Cilantro Pesto Shrimp, Mixed Grill of Summer Vegetables, etc. This is a beautiful cookbook!
BBQ USA by Steven Raichlen
This cookbook has 425 recipes from all across America. There are black and white photos throughout the cookbook but none of the individual recipes. Here’s a smattering of some of the recipes: Big Easy Barbecued Turkey, Tangerine Teriyaki Chicken, Cincinnati Chili Dogs, Apple City Championship Ribs, Santa Maria Tri-Tip with All the Fixin’s, Grilled Caesar Salad, Charred Vegetable Salsa, and the list goes on and on.
Note: If you click on the title of the cookbook, the link takes you straight to Amazon.com. Pretty handy, huh!
