Temples of BBQ is the Big Boy’s guide to the Temples of BBQ across the USA. "Temples" won the prestigious Gourmand World Cookbook Award in 2016 for Best BBQ Cookbook in the World.
Join Lance Rosen and his family on the BBQ road trip of a lifetime through the Southern and Midwest states. They drove over 6000 kilometres in 26 days and ate at 69 BBQ and soul food joints. They focused on the true Temples of BBQ, where the pitmasters are like preachers with their own congregation of followers.
American BBQ is as regional in its styles as wine is in France or pasta is in Italy. Temples of BBQ explains the differences in the regions, shows you where to go, what to eat and then gives you the recipes and techniques to create the perfect BBQ and soul food at home… wherever that may be. It is as much a travel guide as a recipe book.
Welcome to the world of real BBQ – Hallelujah.
Temples of BBQ includes over 60 BBQ recipes to make at home, illustrated by Dean Cambrays stunning food photography. Here are three recipes to whet your appetite.
