Jamie Purviance

From the most trusted name in grilling, the new definitive guide that that blends traditional techniques and modern recipes

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.

WEBER GRILL: The year was 1952. Weber Brothers Metal Works employee George Stephen Sr. had a crazy idea. Using as a model the marine buoys made by his company, he concocted a funky dome-shaped grill with a lid to protect food and keep in rich barbecue flavor. From those humble beginnings, an international grilling revolution was born. Today, Weber has grown to become the leading brand of charcoal and gas grills and accessories, and George's kettle has become a backyard icon.
