We are pleased to share a promotion for our next EYBD Book, Southern Smoke: Barbecue, Traditions, and Treasured Recipes Reimagined for Today by Matthew Register.


Matthew Register, the owner and pitmaster of Southern Smoke Barbecue, has been obsessed with the history of southern recipes. Armed with a massive collection of cookbooks from the 1900s and overflowing boxes of recipe cards from his grandmother, he took to the kitchen. Over weeks, sometimes months, he forged updated versions of timeworn classics. The recipe development, however, is never the star of the show. Locals and tourists alike simply flock to Southern Smoke Barbecue in Garland, North Carolina (population 700), for the food.

In this book, Matthew teaches the basics of smoking with a grill or smoker. He outlines how to manage the fire for long smoking sessions and shares pitmaster tips for common struggles (like overcoming "the stall" on large pieces of meat). He then explores iconic barbecue regions and traditions. Soups, stews, side dishes and desserts are covered here as well.
