Grilling isn't just for summertime anymore, and with the fully illustrated, easy-to-use Classic Barbecue and Grill Cookbook there will never be a shortage of flavorful dishes to throw on the grill. From Down-Home Texas BBQ Chicken to Moroccan Lamb Brochettes, the Classic Barbecue and Grill Cookbook offers a full complement of recipes for grilling and barbecuing chicken, pork, seafood, and vegetables, in addition to ideas for great dinner accompaniments, such as summery salads, specialty breads, and killer desserts (including Roasted Bananas Stuffed with Chocolate), as well as must-have chapter on marinades, rubs, and dipping sauces that just might change your whole outlook on grilling
From a medley of kebabs that includes lamb brochettes, chicken tikka and curaao-soaked fruits, to universal favorites like juicy hamburgers, chargrilled vegetables and herb-scented fish, the Classic Dishes chapter features foods that are most popularly cooked on barbecues the world over.
At-a-glance advice on cooking times and grill temperatures takes the guesswork out of barbecuing, and illustrated easy-to-follow sequences demonstrate how to prepare meat, fish, and vegetables to the perfect doneness.

Summer is upon us, and there's something for everyone in the latest crop of books on outdoor cooking. Butel, the author of several popular books on Southwestern food, also runs a cooking school in Albuquerque. She starts with a good introduction to grilling and smoking, with information on rotisserie cooking as well. Her recipes, from Appetizers to Quick Smoking to Desserts from the Grill, are appealing and fairly sophisticated. Readers expecting typical Southwestern cooking, however, will be surprised to find Bayou Gumbo, Hot Tuna Teriyaki with Sushi Rice, and other ethnic and "fusion" dishes. In any case, there are lots of good and imaginative recipes here. For most collections. The Jamisons, who covered classic barbecue in Smoke & Spice (LJ 4/15/94), are back with a more contemporary approach, creating an array of delicious dishes from Southwest Shrimp and Corn Nuggets to Salmon with Summer Herbs. They stop short of smoking desserts, but they do offer menu suggestions for each of their tempting recipes. Recommended for most collections. The old school of barbecuing is represented by Venable and Willingham. Venable offers Rick's Hot Wings, Down and Dirty Ribs, Kansas City Steaks with Red Wine, and other recipes in that vein; most are short and simple. Willingham, who has won awards at barbecue competitions all over the country, includes many recipes from other barbecues as well as his own recipes. There are recipes for both grilled and barbecued meats and fish, along with appetizers, side dishes, and barbecue sauces, rubs, marinades, et al., presented with lots of folksy humor. Spieler's contribution is a beautifully photographed collection of mouthwatering dishes, but it's not exactly classic barbecue: Thai-Style Shrimp, Provencal Fish in Grape Leaves, and Yucatan Turkey. (Almost all the recipes are for grilled dishes rather than true barbecue.) Buy this for its eclectic assortment of internationally inspired summery recipes, not as the basic introduction to outdoor cooking that its title might suggest.
