We are pleased to share a promotion for our next EYBD Book 12 Bones Smokehouse: An Updated Edition with More Barbecue Recipes from Asheville, NC by Bryan and Angela King, Shane Heavner and Mackensy Lunsford.


When 12 Bones Smokehouse opened in Asheville, North Carolina, many doubted that it would succeed. From a squat building in a flood plain, the owners were serving up creative barbecue that wasn't 100-percent true to any single region. Yet more than a decade later, 12 Bones is a local institution that rivals the Biltmore Estate in popularity. 

In this newly updated edition of 12 Bones Smokehouse, you'll find recipes that draw inspiration from all over the South (and sometimes the North), from old family favorites, to new recipes invented on a whim. You'll enjoy page after page of the classics as well as 12 Bones' most popular specials and desserts.

Yes, I realize this is a smokehouse cookbook, and the savory food will inspire you to head out in the midst of winter and start up the smoker/grill, but the desserts are equally impressive: Peanut butter-banana upside down cake (I am so making this soon), Midnight pies and the Peanut butter pretzel bars (featured in our EYBD preview) are swoon-worthy, or should that be spoon-worthy? Either way, start your dinner with any of the recipes in this book and invite me over, I'll bring dessert!
