Cheryl and Bill Jamison's path-breaking Smoke and Spice was the first, and remains by far the best-selling, book on real barbecue--slow-cooking over smoke--for home cooks. This new and expanded edition appears on the twentieth anniversary of the classic book's first edition. It has two key features. First, there are 50 new recipes, including meat dishes, such as Molasses-Brined Pork Butt, Lemon-Coriander Chicken, and Brisket Frito Pie, as well as sauces, sides, and desserts, like Peppery Sweet Onion Sauce, Cornbread Fritters, and Chipotle Cherry Cobbler. Second, it now contains cover- to-cover color photography and page design. The photographs show details of backyard-smoking techniques, delectable views of finished foods from the smoker, and atmospheric shots of barbecue joints and of the legendary pitmasters who cook in them. With 450 recipes from each of the U.S.'s best barbecue regions, each recipe expertly perfected and fine-tuned by the Jamisons, amusing anecdotes and tall tales from the colorful world of 'Q, and take-it-to-the-bank advice on how to use any kind of smoker (as well as how to smoke-cook on a conventional grill), this expanded and richly photographed new edition is certain to usher in a new generation of backyard cooks devoted to real barbecue.

OMG! I'm not big on bbq/grilling, but these recipes make me want to get into it big time!

I got it mostly for the rub recipes, which are excellent, but this has great photographs & mouthwatering recipes to go along with them. Lots of the recipes were easily adaptable for my dietary needs too.

History, tips, and great recipes. I loved it so much I had to get a copy for myself. There are so many helpful hints in this book. There are also a variety of recipes to try not just main dishes.

I have this book at home on my personal collection. It has some great recipes for backyard cooks. You can use these recipes as building blocks for your own signature recipes.
