Welcome to Texas barbecue. They love to make it. They love to eat it. And they love to argue about it-igniting as many feuds as fires from Houston to El Paso. Legends of Texas Barbecue Cookbook delivers both a practical cookbook and a guided tour of Texas barbecue lore, giving readers straightforward advice right from the pit masters themselves. Their time-honored tips, along with 85 closely guarded recipes, reveal a lip-smacking feast of smoked meats, savory side dishes, and an awesome array of mops, sauces, and rubs. Their opinions are outspoken, their stories outlandish and hilarious. Fascinating archival photography looks back over more than 100 years of barbecue history, from the first turn of the century squirrel roasts to candid shots of Lyndon Johnson chowing down on a plate of ribs. A list of the best barbecue joints and a month-by-month rundown of the most influential statewide cook-offs round out this glorious celebration of barbecue found deep in the heart of Texas.
This book IS, or should be, the bible of TX BBQ. And not just because I have a photograph published in it. Author Robb Walsh takes readers through the amazingly convoluted history of bbq in TX, and manages to make it a) very interesting, b) rich with detail, and c) replete with wonderful recipes us modern-day wanna-be bbq cooks can use. Successfully. I have the original copy from 2002; this updated copy has more recipes; and still proves to be a very worthwhile read. (IF you don’t like BBQ, smoked meat of all kinds, you should skip on to the Walsh book on TX BBQ for Vegans. Coming to your bookseller, soon.)
