Before Smoke & Spice revolutionized backyard home cooking, many believed that smoke-cooked barbecue should be left to the pitmasters at national competitions and famous barbecue joints in the south.

This revised and updated edition now has more than 450 recipes, full-color photos, an update on the latest equipment, and plenty of stories of barbecue lore and pit-side antics, the perfect reminder that good times are as much a part of “Q” as good food.

With the right marinade, you can dress up meats, chicken, fish, or vegetables in the morning, pop the food in the fridge for the day, and finish it all off with a quick broil, grill, microwave, or sauté when you get home. Dinner is served!

In roughly one-quarter of the recipes Strahs shows that you can make lots of other things, from burritos and quesadillas all the way to your own homemade ice-cream cones, on a panini maker.
