Roger Welsch says, "Men are meant to cook. Food and men go hand in hand. The secret is, however they may feel about cooking, men like to eat."
Indeed, men and women will laugh out loud as Welsch takes the reader on a tour of the manly world of cooking and eating. From tips on how to make Gin & Tonic BBQ Ribs (Hint: Drink while you cook), anecdotes about a man's ideal restaurant (a place where you can eat canned food over a sink) and places to cook these delectable meals (huge firepits, car-size barbecue grills, custom-built smokehouses), Welsch proves to the reader that men need to get in touch with their inner chef and have a few laughs at the same time. Diggin' In & Piggin' Out is sure to appeal to the crowd who enjoys the humor of Dave Barry, Tim Allen and Lewis Grizzard.

Diggin' In and Piggin' Out is just the book for folks who have a real affection for food. Author Roger Welsch is to cooking what Grandma Moses is to painting: a primitive genius. His exuberance is contagious--Welsch is the kind of guy who would probably roll around in an entrée, if it was good enough. And God bless him for it; these days when everything you eat is trying to kill you, it's great to hear somebody defend the fried, the greasy, the smoked, the butter-soaked and sugar-dusted. And if you're brave enough to take up Welsch's philosophy of food, try a few of the recipes he includes in this collection.About the Author:
Roger L. Welsch is the author of a number of books on humor, folklore, and Native Americans, most of them published by university presses. He also writes regularly for Esquire, Natural History, and Successful Farming. He lives in Dannebrog, NE.
