What could be better than mixing great food and the great outdoors? Grilling For Dummies brings together two favorite pastimes---cooking and eating---into one easy-to-understand book teeming with tried-and-true barbecuing tips and tasty, mouthwatering recipes. Here's the best place to discover or improve your grilling skills:
Explore the tools of the trade---what you need, and what you don't
Select different types of grills based on their advantages and drawbacks
Use hardwoods, charcoal, briquettes, self-igniting coals, and flavoring woods
Check out a Griller's Glossary to mastering the inside lingo on grill-speak
Season your grilled delights with spices, herbs, sauces, rubs, and marinades
Authors and grill gurus Marie Rama and John Mariani include a list of their favorite BBQ shacks around the country, and they offer ten timely tips for hosting successful outdoor patio or tailgate parties. And Grilling For Dummies features more than 130 tantalizing recipes---including recipes for sauces and side dishes (as well as health-conscious recipes for low-fat cuisine)---that enable you to prepare an infinite variety of gastronomic marvels on the grill!
Outline Hot for your Hibachi, warming up for the Weber? Grilling for Dummies is the perfect guide for the home grillmaster. It doesn't matter if you can't tell a briquette from a Rockette or if you just won your third Michelin star cooking on your grill, this book is one of the best guides available. Like all books in the popular Dummies series, Grilling for Dummies is clear, concise, and thorough. Part reference, part cookbook, and part cooking class, no coal is left unturned. The book covers the gamut with 130 recipes, including everything from the basic burger to wild game to fruit (yes, grilled fruit, and it's not bad). There is an excellent section on vegetables and vegetarian fare, and many ideas and recipes are given for low-fat grilling. Different techniques are presented in depth, including barbecue, smoking, marinades, and rubs. Authors Marie Rama and John Mariani cover every step in the grilling process, from lighting the fire to setting the table. Especially good are the technical sections that address ingredients and prep work, covering subjects as diverse as working with chilies or butterflying lamb chops. Rama and Mariani also win the food diplomat's award for deftly avoiding the regional squabbles that define the barbecue world. Lexington, Kansas City, Texas, Ohio, and other styles are touched on without playing favorites. Read the section on ribs, prepare them all, and draw your own battle lines. Unusual for the Dummies series, but welcome, is the section of full-color photographs illustrating what your food should and can look like with a little effort. This is a solid book for anybody interested in becoming a better backyard chef. --Mark O. Howerton

Reviews - What do customers think about Grilling for Dummies?
some good recipes, but nothng more Jun 2, 2007
I wish I had a chance to browse this book before I bought it. I was also hoping for some guidance on how long to cook various cuts of meat and so on. While there is a little of that, it's scattered among various recipes and not very useable. Should really be called "Grilling Recipes for Dummies".
First time Griller Jun 2, 2006
I just recieved this book, it is great. I am a first time griller and this took me step by step thru everything.
Not for Dummies May 15, 2006
This is a Grilling Cookbook. Not a book about grilling for dummies. I had never grilled before and this book goes off about sauces and marinades, when I just wanted to start by putting a slab of meat or a hot dog on the grill. Needless to say, I was lost and confused before I got the gas connected (which it doesn't help you with, either BTW).
It was totally useless for me.
Great book for entertaining! Aug 16, 2004
I bought this book after reading "Cooking for Dummies" as a second level course in cooking. Since nobody has died after eating my barbecue, I'd say the experiment was a success. From equipment to recipes, this book has something for everyone who wants to experience the adventure of The Grill.

This book will turn a novice griiler (like me) into a pro (also like me). The recipes included with this title are worth the price. The glossary is very useful as are the tips. You'll laugh, you'll cry (see: Onions). Great book. Good day.
