Default BBQ / Smoking / Grilling Books?

After looking through this forum a little bit I found quite a few BBQ / Smoking / Grilling threads and I can tell that some of you have a lot of knowledge about the subject.

This has recently become a hobby of mine but I am still a complete newbie. I suppose I have just gotten into grilling in general, I've just been working with a Weber charcoal grill. I was wondering if there are any books or resources, something like the BBQ equivalent of How To Brew, where I can gain some knowledge on the subject as well as learn the basic methods?

A few books that had good reviews on Amazon:

-Backyard BBQ: The Art of Smokology
-How to Grill: The Complete Illustrated Book of Barbecue Techniques


Any thoughts?

Try to find the Bar-B- Que Bible, Suaces, Rubs and marinades,,By Steven Raichlen.

If you start by just making the recipes in the book, your joy of that hobby will grow rapidly. Then you can experiment

+1 on Dr BBQ's books and the smoke and spice. I have the other one mentioned but though I rememberd it geared more for grilling than smoking so that might be good. Doing a search on Amazon and reading the reviews might also help you decide.

Couple of my favorites are...Paul Kirk's Sauce Book is very good. As well as Cook's Illustrated Griling and BBQ book

Really! Save yourself some time and effort and Google Eastern North Carolina Barbecue. Anything else is just grilled meat.

I'm sorry, but it's true. Enjoy!

How to grill has got to be the best book for a beginner. It covers some pretty advanced techniques with great pics. All of the recipes are top notch as well...I've done almost every one of them. I can HIGHLY recommend the "matambre", and the pulled pork, brisket, and stuffed portabellos.

+1 on Smoke & Spice for barbecue and +1 on How to Grill for grilling; both good books.
