By Steven Raichlen
The most ambitious book yet by America’s bestselling, award-winning grill expert whose Barbecue! Bible books have over 4 million copies in print. Setting out—again—on the barbecue trail four years ago, Steven Raichlen visited 60 countries—yes, 60 countries—and collected 309 of the tastiest, most tantalizing, easy–to–make, and guaranteed–to–wow recipes from every corner of the globe.
Welcome to Planet Barbecue, the book that will take America’s passionate, obsessive, smoke-crazed live-fire cooks to the next level. Planet Barbecue, with full-color photographs throughout, is an unprecedented marriage of food and culture. "Everything tastes better grilled" − beef, chicken, fish, vegetables, kebabs, wings, ribs, even dessert − says Steven. Follow him on his grilling journey to Singapore, the crossroads of Asian grilling; Turkey, the birthplace of Shish Kebab; Argentina, home of world's champion beef eaters; Columbia, the grilling rival of Argentina; Greece, grilling for 3,000 years...just to name a few.
Steven Raichlen is America's "master griller." In addition to his bestselling, award–winning Barbecue! Bible cookbooks, articles by him appear regularly in Food & Wine, Bon Appetit, and other magazines and newspapers. He was host of PBS's popular series Barbecue University at the Greenbrier, now out on DVD. Bon Appetit named him Cooking Teacher of the Year (2003). He lives and grills in Coconut Grove, Florida, and on Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts.

If you love to grill, this is the book for you. There are so many wonderful recipes, tips, introduction stories in this book, that you won't mind the recipes that you can't use or convert but will be happy with the many recipes that you can use.
