Having just purchased a new grill, I was in need of some ideas and some assistance in the art of grilling. I saw this book and thought it might help. There is some really good information in the book and many recipes. Some of the recipes just don't appeal to me but at least you get an idea of how to prepare similar foods. There are charts for the length of time to cook a particular meat and a lot of other good information. It is a good book for beginners. Advanced people, I'm sure, already know most of what is presented.
