To define American barbecue as "ribs and roasts cooked low and slow in the Southern style" doesn't do it justice. Traditional barbecue, in all its delicious glory, is a foundation-an idea to be built upon. And all across the country, home grillers and restaurant chefs alike are doing just that. In this big melting-pot of a nation, we all bring something different to the table-flavors, spices, perspectives-and each time we do, the meaning of barbecue changes a little.

Through stories and essays, hundreds of photos, crystal-clear techniques, and 100 exceptional and fool-proof recipes, Weber's New American Barbecue™ celebrates what's happening at the grill today. From chefs creating new classics to everyday backyard heroes melding flavors to pitmasters setting new standards of excellence at competitions, this book explores the delicious evolution of our true American pastime-barbecue.

JAMIE PURVIANCE graduated from the Culinary Institute of America, and has written for publications such as Bon Appétit, Fine Cooking, and the Los Angeles Times. He is the author of numerous cookbooks including Weber's Way to Grill™, a New York Times bestseller.
