These Guys Don't Like Ray @DrBBQ Lampe's Slow Fire, But You Will

Slow Fire ~ Gotta Feeling They Don't Like This CookbookBurgers, Franks, and the occasional Steak are not barbeque.

Before everyone gets their knickers in a twist and posts endless comments let’s go over some of the basics. Hamburgers, Hot Dogs and Steaks are grilled. Since barbeque is traditionally cooked outdoors that’s where barbeque somehow evolved to mean most any cook out.

Barbeque is cooked low and slow, its smoky and saucy, and did I mention it takes time, lots of it, at low heat, for a long time. Think brisket so tender if literally falls off the bone, with a knife used only to push the tender meat onto the fork. Yankees refer to this as “Southern Barbeque” but foodies know it simply as barbeque.

Enough of my rant, what about the book? Read the full review on Devil Gourmet.
