Nothing special, very dissapointed, needs an editor,
This review is from: Smokin' with Myron Mixon: Recipes Made Simple, from the Winningest Man in Barbecue (Paperback)
As a BBQ lover and enthusiast, I was pretty excited that Myron was putting out a book and actually pre-ordered the book a couple weeks before it's release. But, unfortunately, aside from a bunch of southern accent text, I don't think he played much of a role in almost any of this book. At least I hope not. I would be a little embarrassed putting out such a poor quality book. Some of the recipes are way off like the rib marinade... It asks for 2 whole cups of salt and that is on top of the soy sauce for about 4 liters of marinade. It will ruine your ribs and you will have to throw them out. This coming from the "winningest man in BBQ"?? And the book doesn't fall short of pumping up Myrons ego. Half the book talks about how great he is. The actual recipes themselves are with mistakes. They spent so little time on proof reading this book that there are many spots where they just cut and paste the exact same directions from one part of the book to another. In fact they even forgot to change the name of the meat in one cut and paste hack job. I think it was in the beef brisket recipe, that the directions were indicating what to do next to the ribs !! ... So after finding mistakes so obvious like this, it is really hard to believe that any of the information is very accurate. And Myron, I really can't believe you put your name to this book without reading it. I can't say you don't know BBQ, no one can say that I don't think but as for this book, it would have been more useful left as the tree it was and used in your bbq firebox... Hope your next one is better.
