I was honored this year when I was approached by Creative Homeowner Publishing to submit some recipes for Char-Broil's Everybody Grills!
Out in stores now is Everybody Grills, the all-grilling cookbook from Char-Broil and Creative Homeowner. Penned by Barry "CB" Martin and edited by Lisa Khan, this thing is the end all be all of grilling cookbooks. Sporting full color photos of each dish on every page, it is nothing short of a tome of simple recipes and mouth-watering pictures.
Everybody Grills comes through in every way for my cookbook requirements. It is easy to read, has photos of the food, and the recipes are easy to make.
Aside from the decadent quality of the food and the full color quality of the book, the thing that sets it apart from others is that many of the recipes were submitted by regular dudes such as myself, so you get that sense that these recipes can be done by anyone at home. Everyday grilling for the everday dude.
Admittedly, I'm a bit biased towards this book, since my name appears in the book a few times, but after a few months of thought I feel justified in my review. It may be one of the better grilling books out there. It is a great coffee table cookbook, but practical as well. The recipes are laid out logically, and the type is set perfectly. Additionally, they are easy to follow and you really get a feeling that YOU TOO could make gorgeous food like this.
Everybody Grills is available online at Amazon.com, through Creative Homeowner and at Lowe's Home Improvement Stores.
