Summer Barbecuing... Discover how to  have a great American BBQ with this classic menu including the recipes for your barbecue!

Many of the American classic recipes have morphed into culinary delights my Grandmother wouldn't recognize.  But they all have an original recipe they are based on.  Follow me on a journey of discovery and memories of a simpler time with real food for a backyard barbecue. I'll take you through the history, what we were doing at the time we made these recipes, how we dined and how we lived.

Although it's time-saving to buy some of these recipes already finished and ready for the table, they don't taste the same as what you can easily make at home.  Once you know the basics for these traditional recipes, you'll be inspired to add a few of your favorite ingredients and make it your own.  Your children may then be handing down your classic recipe through the generations. 
  • How to make the BEST hamburger
  • The BEST potato for your Potato Salad
  • The BEST homemade Chocolate Ice Cream (very old recipe!)
  • EASY Fruit Salad that won't take up all your time to prepare
  • REAL Baked Beans you can make in advance
  • and of course, REAL Apple Pie - EASY and delish!
This American Classic Digest is a collection of recipes based around a classic menu for a backyard barbecue. Each recipe includes my preparation tips and pictures.

HASH(0xa7061e94) out of 5 stars Love this book May 9 2012
By Marg Ruttan - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I absolutely love this book. It has some great background information on recipes that we all have used for years. Joyce tells us the origins of the recipes and gives tips on how to make them so they are just like our Mom's used to make. In addition, she provides some interesting information about songs from the 1950s and 1960s, the era of rock 'n roll and the time when backyard barbeques became popular.

The recipes are easy to follow and easy to make. They are true blue American classics and full of flavor. I loved the potato salad recipe (I'm a dedicated potato fan) and I also really enjoyed Joyce's recipe for Cole Slaw. I will be making some of the other recipes throughout the summer as well.

This book has great content and anyone interested in background information on recipes will find it well worth the price. I highly recommend it.

HASH(0xb506dbf4) out of 5 stars What Other Cookbook Can Make You Feel Like A Kid Again? May 10 2012
By Michelle - Published on

This cookbook was a lot of fun to read. I particularly loved the stories of the authors backyard BBQ's - I grew up around the same time and the wonderful descriptions of the things that were happening in that era and the simpler times and foods that we ate back then really took me back to my youth. I grew up in New England and we had BBQ's quite often too during the warm months - I remember how the summers seemed to last forever and the only responsibilities were making sure my room was clean for when company came over to the BBQ! Those were the days. The book includes 10 classic recipes - enough for you to base your entire BBQ on.

A blast from the past. I absolutely love this book. If you are a baby boomer, this will bring back fond memories. I think I have all of the songs the author lists in the Entertainment section on CD, plus a few more to boot. Hey, anybody remember the exact year Chex Party Mix was first made? I do, it was in the '50's. The recipes are great, can't wait to try out the Chocolate Ice Cream. Instead of watching TV tonight, I think I'll turn the CD player on and stroll through memory lane. Thanks Joyce.

Joyce Middleton brought back many good memories with her latest, American Classic Digest - Hamburger and Hot Dog BBQ (In the Pantry Classics). The Fifties and early Sixties were a wonderful time to grow up in America. Grandma lived on the East Coast, where things were a little bit different than Joyce's West Coast upbringing. We always got snacks after school, Grandma always had cookies in the cookie jar and almost nobody in New England thought to bother with a swimming pool in the yard. We did, however, barbecue hamburgs and hot dogs - often at one of the many picnic spots that dotted New England's highways and byways. The Sunday Afternoon thing to do in much of New England was to pile into the car and go for a ride! Barbecuing hot dogs, or Wienie Roasts as they were known in the South, has a long tradition "back East". My mother used to say quite often that she had been to a hundred Wienie Roasts and never once eaten one!

Joyce shares some wonderful stories along with a bit of food history, though I am not at all sure Wikipedia is correct about the source of the name "hot dog" - I've always heard that it came from the hot dog's resemblance to a dachshund and eating dog meat in time of war certainly was not unique to Germans among the people of Europe.

Back in the fifties "something quick, with a mix" was becoming the goal of every housewife. I can remember my mother complaining to either Betty Crocker or General Mills about the quality of one such mix and not only receiving a reply, but also a huge carton filled with one of every mix the company put out! Joyce maintains that "quick and easy" fifties flavor by calling for things like bagged, shredded cole slaw (wouldn't my mother's generation have thought that was just the cat's meow!) or a package of pre-rolled pie crusts.

Grandma must take big exception to one of Joyce's recipes - but she thinks it may be a typo. Ideally, says the granddaughter of a man who grew some of the finest eating corn to be had, you put the water on and then go out to the field to get the corn. The sugars in corn start to turn to starch within an hour or so of the time it is picked. People add sugar to the water they cook "old" corn in to overcome this and bring back some of that just picked flavor - but they use a teaspoon or two, not an entire cup! That is enough sugar to make candied corn and Grandma is sure that wasn't Joyce's intent.

The book contains 10 recipes for an indulgent Fifties-style back yard Sunday afternoon barbecue. Each is listed in a Table of Contents, that does interface correctly with the Kindle Navigation Menu, for which Joyce gets an extra star.

Great nostalgia!

I had a good time walking through the pages of Joyce's BBQ book. There were memories a plenty, of quieter, simpler, times. I remember no sleeve cotton, button shirts and knee length shorts or peddle pushers. Love the Cole Slaw recipe and want to try the ideas of other recipes this year for our backyard entertaining for the fourth of July. Thanks again Joyce for another fun, entertaining, valuable book of recipes. This one was especially good because of the references to a bygone era that, I for one, enjoyed immensely
