Cookbook Recommendation: Grill Nation
Americans are obsessed with grilling, all for good reason. But there’s much more to outdoor cooking than flipping burgers. For some help firing up that grill, pick up a copy of David Gaus’s new book Grill Nation: 200 Surefire Recipes, Tips, and Techniques to Grill Like a Pro.
Gaus, restaurant chef and host of Travel Channel’s high-heat, high stakes grilling competition show, “American Grilled”, offers pit-proven tips and useful techniques for anyone handling a grill. Learn the differences between charcoal, gas and wood grilling, as well as how to smoke and cut meat. Once you’ve mastered the basics, tackle one of Gaus’s crowd-pleasing recipes, such as the cowboy cast iron cornbread with charred jalapeno honey butter spread, or the grilled pork tenderloin with a sweet & spicy guava BBQ sauce. For dessert, grill up some sublime peach and sorghum with mascarpone cream.
