We are pleased to share a promotion for our next EYBD Book, The Backyard Fire Cookbook: Get Outside and Master Ember Roasting, Charcoal Grilling, Cast-Iron Cooking, and Live-Fire Feasting by Linda Ly, the author of several cookbooks and voice behind the Garden Betty blog.

Whether an outdoor enthusiast or not, most of us can agree that we love a cook out. When my husband says those magic words "I can grill something", I'm elated. Grilling means less mess in the kitchen and less work for me, not to mention our family loves barbecue everything! 

Linda Ly encourages us to take back the great outdoors and approach our backyard as another kitchen. She starts off with instructions for creating an outdoor pantry, building an outdoor fire pit, and provides details on how to make the most of cooking outdoors. What follows are tips for success and over 80 recipes that range from ember-roasted salads, caveman steaks, cornbread, stews and soups to plank grilling. 

Who wants to heat up the kitchen on a sorching day when we can relax in the shade and let our grill or fire pit do the work? Not me.
