Grilling season will be here before you know it – although today in Indiana it seems more like October – and my latest “Cookbook Corner” will get you prepared for the perfect BBQ.
“Grilling with House of Q” By: Brian Misko
I’m in love with this book! Do you like grilling!? Loved grilled food? Skip this review, and just buy the book – you’ll be glad you did – and you can thank me later… The book is divided up into several sections including, how to grill like a pro, appetizers, sausages and burgers, pork, beef, poultry, seafood, competition bbq, vegetables salads and sides, desserts (my favorite chapter – more on that later) and brines rubs sauces and spreads.
The section on how to “grill like a pro” is worth the price of the book alone – everything you need to know about grilling – from beginning to expert – everyone will learn something here.
Brian has done a fabulous job in compiling recipes that everyone will love. There is really something for everyone here – and then some.
Just some of the delicious recipes include, “Cedar-Planked Brie” (page 18 and so delicious you won’t believe it), “Dinosaur Eggs” (page 25 which are really like mini meatloaves with a delicious and surprisingly tender center), “No-Fail Smoked Chicken Wings” (page 29), “Handmade Italian Sausage Burgers” (page 36), “Val’s Award-Winning Apple Burgers” (page 43), “Maple and Mustard Pork Tenderloins” (page 53), “Southern Rubbed Strip Steaks” (page 62), “Big Dog Beef Ribs” (page 72), “Whole Smoked Turkey” (page 88), “Maple Salmon” (page 98), “Championship Slow-Smoked Ribs” (page 114 and according to a friend of mine “the best thing to hit the lips”), “Grilled Asparagus Tart” (page 136) – and several other recipes for baked beans, mac and cheese, more asparagus recipes and even a recipe for grilled cornbread. The deliciousness doesn’t stop there…because the next part is my favorite…the desserts!
I had honestly never thought about grilling desserts – until now! “Granola-Stuffed Apples” (page 147), “Grilled PB ‘N’ B Sandwiches” (page 149 – and served with a delicious whisky cream sauce!), “Grilled Cinnamon Toast with Fresh Fruit Pan Sauce” (page 150) and even (for the bacon lovers) “Bacon Baklava” (page 154).
Brines and sauces finish out this beautiful book… I highly recommend this for those who love grilling their food – and for those who have always wanted to (like me)…
Fabulous book, great recipes and perfect photographs run throughout this book. Brian’s love for BBQ is purely felt throughout this delicious book.
