Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Read for any BBQ Enthusiast This is a "how-to" about REAL BBQ... not grilling, but true, low & slow southern BBQ. Written in an engaging but informative style, this book allows anyone with an existing charcoal or gas grill, or a newly purchased smoker to learn the real art of traditional southern-style BBQ from the ground up. It takes a methodical, step-by-step approach that will build small successes into a true passion. The author is a throwback to to the great days of BBQ where the highly skilled were more than happy to pass on their knowledge rather than making the "big bucks" charging you to take a course. This is a great read as well as a great tutorial, and although it's chock full of tried and true recipes, it never looses sight of it's purpose; to give you a firm footing on your route to becoming a true pitmaster.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Learn the Real Deal For most people living north of the Mason - Dixon Line, and especially those in Canada, BBQ really means grilling; cooking directly over the flames at high temperature. In the US South however BBQ takes on a whole new meaning, including often becoming a noun. Low & Slow is dedicated to the true art of "low and slow" BBQ. The author takes a "text book" approach by teaching the fundamentals of traditional BBQ in 5 easy lessons. He also takes great pains to adapt the methodology to 3 popular styles of cooker; the offset smoker, the vertical, or bullet smoker, and the "kettle-type" grill, which can indeed produce good 'Q if set up correctly. As well as the lessons, Mr. Wiviott provides an extensive collection of recipes for rubs, mops, sauces and accompanying dishes. This is the book that should have come with your smoker! If you want to become a Pitmaster, THIS is the place to start. One more point. If you decide to follow the path, don't deviate... otherwise Mr. Wiviott may send his Uncle Umberto up from Chicago to "pay you a visit."
