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, including:
12 Bones' namesake ribs, pulled pork, smoked chicken, and other meaty goodness;
more sides than you could possibly finish
pies, cookies, and even a cake or two to satisfy any sweet tooth
and—in this new edition—dozens of new recipes, including our best rib rubs and seasonal sauces!
Spark the smoker and light up the grill; it's time to make the most flavorful meals you've ever had
|Everything about this cookbook is excellent. The author begins with explaining slow cooking, smoking. He goes over the difference between gas, charcoal, the meat itself, and then the different types of wood if you chose to any. An example they use cherry and oak because Hickory and mesquite are a more aggressive wood, (leave a stronger flavor unless that is what you prefer). They also use Alder wood for poultry and fish. What is really good about this book is all of the recipes for brines, rubs, and the different sauces. Especially rubs most places and people do not give up what they put in theirs, here you get all of that in this book. Along with pickling recipes, how to make pastrami from the brine and forward, corned beef. They smoke everything from chicken, fish, to whole turkeys all in the book. Also a very good section on making sides, and then ends with desserts, with a chocolate whiskey cake with a coffee bean that looks very good and one that I will make for sure. A very good book to add to anyone’s collection. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com|
