From Kansas City to the Carolina coast, nobody does barbecue like the South. All Fired Up: Smokin’ Hot BBQ Secrets from the South’s Best Pitmasters, from the editors of Southern Living and award-winning pitmaster Troy Black, is the essential guide to Southern barbecue for beginners and experienced ‘cue lovers alike. Troy takes you on a journey through the South, covering every region of barbecue from Texas brisket to Alabama smoked chicken, and everything in between, sharing his own recipes and techniques for winning barbecue.
Troy gets you started in “Tools of the Trade,” where he outlines all the equipment and tools you need to grill and barbecue successfully, whether you’re using a gas grill, charcoal grill, or smoker. He includes step-by-step photos on how to prepare a charcoal grill, as well as guidelines on direct and indirect heat, so your grilled dishes turn out perfect every time. Once the grill is ready to go, turn to “Slathered and Sauced,” Troy’s comprehensive chapter of recipes for dry rubs, marinades, and sauces from all regions of barbecue, from Eastern Carolina Vinegar Sauce (great with pulled pork) to Memphis Dry Rub (perfect on ribs). He also includes recipes for salsas, relishes, chutneys, and guacamole made with grilled corn and grilled red onion that make great accompaniments to barbecued or grilled meat.
For tried-and-true barbecue classics, look no further than the “Authentic BBQ” chapter. These satisfying recipes range from Texas Smoked Brisket to The Southern Living Pulled Pork Sandwich to Hickory-Smoked Whole Chicken with Alabama’s famous White BBQ Sauce. Troy shows you how to take your barbecue to different dishes – use leftover brisket in the Southern favorite Chicken-and-Brisket Brunswick Stew or Cowboy Nachos loaded with braised brisket and classic nacho toppings. “Beef It Up,” “Pig Out,” “Hot Chix” and “Fresh Catch” chapters include Troy’s recipes for perfect grilled or barbecued beef, pork, chicken, fish and accompanying sauces, from special occasion dishes like Grilled Filet Mignon With Red Wine Mushroom Sauce or Brown Sugar Pork Chops With Peach BBQ Sauce to simple weeknight suppers of Pineapple-Jalapeno Burgers or Sweet Asian-Grilled Salmon.
Create unique grilled desserts and vegetables, as well as great sides, with the help of the “Special Extras.” Troy includes some unique twists on classics, such as Grilled Rosemary Lemonade, which gets a smoky kick from lemons grilled before juicing, and the Grilled Green Tomatoes Caprese with an added depth of flavor of grilled green tomatoes and white balsamic vinegar. Sweets can be grilled too, as in Grilled Peaches with Whipped Cream and Raspberry-Mint Mash but desserts also include classic sweets to end your barbecue feast like Banana Pudding with toasted meringue on top.
Sprinkled throughout this indispensable guide are sidebars featuring tips, anecdotes, and wisdom from the South’s top pitmasters, as well as profiles of the South’s favorite barbecue joints, like Puckett’s Grocery in Franklin, TN which pairs great barbecue and live music, or Oklahoma Joe’s Barbecue in Kansas City, Troy’s personal favorite barbecue place in the country. This is as much a recipe book as it is a celebration of the South and its people -- its beautiful photos from barbecue restaurants around the region imbue it with a true sense of place and culture. With more than 175 recipes and 400 color photos, plus barbecue champion Troy Black by your side, Southern Living All Fired Up has all the secrets for creating barbecue perfection.
