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.
The Big Book of Barbecue: recipes and revelations from the barbecue belt.
Wicked Good Barbecue: fearless recipes from two damn Yankees who have won the biggest, baddest bbq competitions in the world.
