Fire Food by Christian DJ BBQ Stevenson

Christian "DJ BBQ" Stevenson had a successful career as a radio and TV broadcaster before his passion for cooking over fire changed his course. He is now the second most popular BBQ in the world on YouTube as well as a regular on Jamie Oliver's FoodTube channel. 

Stevenson's first book entitled, Jamie Oliver's Food Tube: The BBQ Book, was a big seller. Now the musical pit-master has written a second cookbook: Fire Food: The Ultimate BBQ Cookbook that delivers far more than smokey meat dishes. Many of the recipes marry international spice with flame such as the Lamb keemadilla or Korean Philly cheese steak. I am a crazy fool for international flavors and DJ BBQ hits all the notes for me in Fire Food.

All the basics of cooking over coal and wood can be found here as the author shows us how to perfect classic recipes and delves into more inventive cookout delights including a BBQ spaghetti Bolognese, and poutine with bourbon-spiked gravy. There are fish dishes, veggie grills, and enough invention to see you through several seasons of grilling. It has been a long time since I was this excited over a barbecue book - but once you take a look through this book you'll feel the same way.
