Barbecue sauces, rubs, and marinades are every griller’s secret weapon: the flavor boosters that give grilled food its character, personality, depth, and soul.
Steven Raichlen, America’s “master griller” (Esquire), has completely updated and revised his best-selling encyclopedia of chile-fired rubs, lemony marinades, buttery bastes, pack-a-wallop sauces, plus mops, slathers, sambals, and chutneys. It’s a cornucopia of all the latest flavor trends, drawing from irresistible Thai, Mexican, Indian, Cajun, Jamaican, Italian, and French cuisines, as well as those building blocks from America’s own barbecue belt.
There are more than 200 recipes in all, including a full sampler of dinner recipes using the sauces. And the book now has full-color photographs throughout. It’s the essential companion cookbook for every at-home pitmaster looking to up his or her game.

With the Project Fire and Smoke Book Set, author, Steven Raichlen walks the reader through the ups and downs of grilling in Project Fire and the ins and outs of smoking every kind of meat in Project Smoke. With 100 recipes in each book, you will be grilling and smoking meat like a master!
From Project Fire:
Drawing on a combination of classic and boldly contemporary techniques, Raichlen presents 100 inspired recipes that capture the full range of what grillers want to cook today. Consider your basic steak. Raichlen starts with the iconic: a T-bone grilled over direct heat, smartly tattooed with grill marks and lavished (the way the pros do it) with sizzling beef fat. Then he teaches a technique new to most of us: reverse-searing. This approach allows you to grill a monster steak, such as a beef tomahawk, to perfection while also imparting a haunting smoky flavor. Of course, there’s a Caveman Sirloin: meat seared right on the coals, as dramatic as grilling gets. Plus, here’s how to blow-torch a veal chop, and how to spit-roast whole cauliflower on a rotisserie. Learn to grill mussels in hay, squash on a salt slab, and salmon steaks on a shovel over a campfire.
From Project Smoke:
