Franklin Barbecue by Aaron Franklin and Jordan Mackay

Oh how I love any kind of barbecue food!  Do you love barbecue?  What is your favorite kind of barbecue dish?  I honestly cannot pick just one!  I love to go out for barbecue, but I have I also love to make my own barbecue at home.  Yum!  I recently received the Franklin Barbecue cookbook.  This book is written by Aaron Franklin and Jordan Mackay.  This is a meat-smoking manifesto!  The book honestly had me drooling just from the delicious looking picture on the front.

Franklin Barbecue really gives you a ton of information about barbecuing.  The book even explains to you how much time really can be put into making good barbecue.  The book contains beautiful pictures that really show you how the food should look.  This is not just a cookbook though.  It explains more than recipes in great detail.  It explains things like how to choose the right ribs.  It also talks about choosing the right wood, and where to find it.  This book even gets into detail about smokers.  Franklin Barbecue also gives simple steps for smoking any kind of meat.  I was really impressed with how much I learned from this book.  This really is a great resource for someone that wants to get serious about smoking their own meats at home.

This book includes a great selection of barbecue recipes.  I fell in love with the recipe section of this book.  It has recipes for brisket, spare ribs, beef ribs, sauce, beans, and so much more.  The recipes really show you step by step how to create these amazing barbecue dishes.  They also include photos of the recipe throughout the process of creating it.  I really like that they even go as far as to explain how to correctly cut brisket.  I was impressed.

  1. We love to BBQ and since my son has Celiacs disease we cook at home so finding good recipes is a must. This book looks like it has a lot of great ones we can create and enjoy at parties and for our family dinners too.
