I've been told that one of these books by Jamison & Alters is the smoker's "Bible". Any suggestions on which title to start out with?[p]Sublime Smoke, Smoke & Spice, or Born to Grill[p]Thanks, TR

    <p />AbqEgg'r, my personal favorite doesn't appear on your wish list - The BARBECUE BIBLE - Steven Raichlen - Over 500 Recipes [ISBN 1-56305-866-9]

    Coincidentally, yesterday, I went out and purchased Smoke and Spice. It was recommended to me by most ppl. I talked to on the subject of Q'ing. Its not about grilling, it is about "low, slow, barbecuing". vote is to go with Smoke and Spice.

    AbqEgg'r,[p]If you're interested in traditional BBQ classics (pulled pork, ribs, brisket) go with Smoke & Spice to start. (Be aware, thought, that cooking times & temps will vary on the Egg. Just ask here when you're about to try something new & you'll get specific advice.) Sublime Smoke is also excellent but the recipes are more inventive. Born to Grill deals mostly with higher-temp grilling than low-and-slow smoking - but again, it's a great book.[p]Cathy

    Thanks to all for the comments, I even had a laugh over the picture. Who knows what makes perfect BBQ, maybe a few tunes and some margaritas!

    That's my favorite too; what an inspiration, as well as great reference book!
    And, being from Florida, I've found his Miami Spice to be full of recipes that help make long Michigan winters tolerble.
    Just looking at either book makes one want to fire up the BGE and have a party. JCA

    <p />J Appledog, I'll have to try Miami Spice. The BBQ Bible just has such a great variety of good recipes and it's also wher I found the Mexican Enchilada recipe for pulled pork. If you haven't already tried it - the Memphis Sytle Rib recipe is outstanding![p]

    Smokin' Todd,
    Since the books don't seem to overlap, I decided to order all three. Figure I need all the help I can get. Found a book store thru "Abe's" that had really great prices ([p]Also plan to get "The BARBECUE BIBLE" mentioned in another post.[p]TR
