The Top 3 BBQ Cookbooks Every Beginner Should OwnFor beginners, a great BBQ cookbook can mean so much. These books can teach you all about flavor, technique, methods, and the science behind great BBQ, so we at BBQ Bros want to outline a few cookbooks that we feel every beginner must have in their BBQ library. Each with different lessons and ways of teaching them, they can create a strong foundation comprised of just what it means to BBQ and how to do it better and better each time. Our picks for the top 3 BBQ cookbooks for any beginner are: 1. Smoke: New Firewood Cooking by Tim Byres – This is a different sort of BBQ cookbook, and it focuses on everything from modern southern BBQ to the basis of primitive wood cooking methods. The main reason why we find that this a must-have is that it really provides an all-inclusive basic understanding of the science of BBQ, its origins, and how to master both classic and primitive techniques as well as the modern techniques used today. Once a top level chef and restaurateur, Tim Byres puts shifts his focus on the most basic of BBQ methods in this book. 2. Big Bob Gibson’s BBQ Book: Recipes and Secrets from a Legendary BBQ Joint – Big Bob Gibson’s in Decatur, Alabama is hailed as one of the most influential BBQ restaurants in the world, and has been serving local customers for over 85 years. What this book provides is an excellent base in award winning and influential BBQ, so beginners can get a feel for just what makes BBQ great as they perfect skills by learning from an icon. 3. Slow Fire: The Beginner’s Guide to Lip-Smacking BBQ – Ray Lampe is better known as Dr. BBQ, and who better to learn from than an award winner who considers himself a doctor of the art? While Lampe has a number of BBQ cookbooks focusing on his plethora of award winning recipes, this is the ultimate pick for beginners looking to perfect their method and approach to their own at home BBQ. There is a lot to be learned from the books on this list, and while there are a ton of great BBQ books out there to teach you just how to approach your BBQ, these are the ones that can give you the best foundation in technique, flavor, and approach.
