Another great book from Cook's, covering all the basic aspects of grilling. The recipe for slow cooked ribs is excellent. The brining technique for grilling chicken is one of the most important discoveries I've ever made. I refuse to eat any chicken that hasn't been brined!! Recipes are very informative and easy to follow. Unfortunately this book comes with the old-style, AWFUL Cook's Illustrated index, which is impossible to use. I've addded my own annotations in order to make it useful. All in all, this is a great book!!

I have never written a review on Amazon though I am a long time user. After getting this book I was compelled to write. From expert looking for more ideas to beginner just getting your feet wet with barbecue this book is for you. From reading through the recipes of this book I get the sense that the writers cooked each recipe in dozens of ways until they found just the right combination for a perfect cook. That saves me time and money on possible mis-cooking. They take the reader through a step-by-step approach that makes no room for error. I can confidently make something for the first time for dinner guests and know by following their directions the meat will barbecue perfectly.
This past Thanksgiving I grill roasted my first turkey to perfection. For the super bowl I cooked shrimp that my guests could not get enough of. Recently I cooked a pork loin that was seared beautifully on the outside and cooked just right on the inside. I look forward to future succeses with this book and heartily recommend to those who love barbecue done right.

I know of no other cookbook that goes through such rigorous experimentation in order to come up with the best possible recipes. The editors don't just cover ingredients, but they also cover tools and techniques in wonderful detail. For the really inquisitive, they also offer scientific explanations behind various cooking techniques like brining. The chapter on beef burgers alone is worth the price of the book, offering insightful hints on how to choose the meat, how to shape the patties, and how to cook them. Then, to ensure that no other book on grilling even comes close, they offer separate cooking instructions for charcoal vs. gas grills FOR EVERY RECIPE.
Truly amazing.

Several months ago my Dad passed on to me about 10 of his old Cooks Illustrated magazines to read. They didn't seem very impressive on the outside, no glossy photos or pictures to look at. But I leafed through the magazines and just loved the no nonsense feel of the magazine. So when we bought a grill and I saw that Cooks Illustrated did a Grilling Recipe book, I knew I would get it...and all the positive remarks the book had also encouraged me. It arrived, and gee, it still didn't have pretty color photos either, but I got over it quickly and reminded myself that I didn't need to see how a chicken leg looked for the 100th time anyway. There are plenty of illustrations though, which are helpful when they describe a technique for you to do, such as making hamburger patties so they don't turn into tennis balls on the grill. The book provides a separate recipe for each food, depending on whether you are using a charcoal or gas grill. How many times have you bought a cookbook and made a recipe and afterwards thought, "that really wasn't very good, why did they put that recipe in there, just for filler?"? Well, with Cooks Illustrated you can be confident the recipes were thoroughly tested and tasted, and if it didn't taste good, it wasn't included. To me, understanding why a recipe works (and this book explains why they do), makes it easier for me to cook, and it expands my knowledge of cooking, so I can use what I learned on other meal preparations. I had never heard of brining myself until this book, and I tried the brined pork chops on my grill...YUMMMY, nice and juicy and simple to do.Read more ›

This is by far the best cookbook for the grill that I have found. Every recipe that I have tried was received with rave reviews. The instructions are easy to follow and the meals are consistently good.
