May Is National Barbecue Month, National Hamburger Month and National Salad Month!

Who knew May was such a foodie month!  You can’t go wrong with barbecue or a juicy hamburger or a nice salad!  The Cheshire Library has just the books to get you started with some mouth-watering recipes!


First, to clear up some confusion between grilling and barbecuing.  They are not the same!  Grilling involves cooking at intense heat (500 degrees or higher) for a short (an hour or less) period of time.  Barbecuing is cooking over low heat (225 degrees or less), and for a long period of time.  Below is a sampling of books the Cheshire Library has on barbecuing.
