For succulent results every time, nothing is more crucial than understanding the science behind the interaction of food, fire, heat, and smoke. This is the definitive guide to the concepts, methods, equipment, and accessories of barbecue and grilling. The founder and editor of the world's most popular BBQ and grilling website, amazingribs.com, Meathead Goldwyn applies the latest research to backyard cooking more than 100 thoroughly tested recipes.
With the help of physicist and food scientist Professor Greg Blonder, PhD, of Boston University, he explains why dry brining is better than wet brining; how marinades really work; why rubs shouldn't have salt in them; the importance of digital thermometers; why searing doesn't seal in juices; how salt penetrates but spices don't; when charcoal beats gas and when gas beats charcoal; how to calibrate and tune a grill or smoker; how to keep fish from sticking; cooking with logs; the strengths and weaknesses of the new pellet cookers; tricks for rotisserie cooking; why cooking whole animals is a bad idea; which grill grates are best; and why beer-can chicken is a waste of good beer and nowhere close to the best way to cook a bird.

great first half, second half is a lot of recipes.
the first half is crazy informative but the second part being recipes is kind of a dry listen when driving. It is nice though if you listen to it while cooking in a small kitchen.

Made me hongry
Made me hongry: 💙Meathead has ways of describing BBQ that stimulate salivary glands and the the desperation to grill grill grill! Even at 3:30 in morning which it currently is right now!!! Only problems are local wild dogs and coyotes fighting for meat 🥩 and waking neighbors. Oops here come the cops. No big deal but they eat a lot!
