    I swear you've cooked more APL recipes than APL has!! =) And they always look great!

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

  • Oh yeah, there’s more than a few.  The less obvious ones are his underestimates for cooking times.  I’ve written a bunch of notes in the copy of SB that I have, and a lot of them are corrections to timings.

    I find mistakes all the time in my cookbooks and it drives me crazy, especially when the author doesn’t publish an errata online. Arron Franklin’ BBQ sauce calls for, and I quote  -

    1/4 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar

    I gave up on APL recipes. Too complicated for me.  I’m just not good at following directions.

    Guilty, but I have learned a lot.  Like @JohnInCarolina mentioned.  I have adjusted cooking times, ingredients, etc.  The recipes have taught me a lot.  It just takes me many repetitions to learn!  :|

    True.

    I'm planning on making some ribs today. Found my copy of APL's book, perused the recipe, and put it down. Make the sauce, make the rub, wrap with foil, unwrap, etc. 

    I'll aim for greatness some other time :)

    Hipsters are known for using manual typewriters and it can be hard to make corrections on those.  Maybe he just got tired of retyping everything.

    It really depends on what you are looking for.  His recipes are very involved.  However, after going through many of them, more than once.  I have learned to simplify and remove many of his steps with good results.  I have also learned a lot about ingredients, preparation, cooking and finishing with that book!

    Of Q cookbooks?  Who knows.  All I know is that nearly all of the recipes I’ve tried from that book are solid.

    I like Serious Barbecue. I've made four of his recipes, maybe more. They are involved but worth it imo.

    Aaron's sauce tastes a lot better with a full 1/4 cup of brown sugar, which I'm assuming was his original intent.  It's my go-to sauce for Texas-style cooks.

    Focus less on his recipes and more on his methods... stick with it, I'm telling you. It'll up your grilling game exponentially.

    I think if you look at the recipe in context:



    It’s clear that it’s probably calling for 2 tablespoons plus 1 1/2 teaspoons of brown sugar, to match the Worcestershire.

    Very possible. I wouldn’t want to subtract too too much sugar tho, my guess of 1/4 cup barely cuts the acidity to non-ass puckering levels. It’s stout so I feel the increased sweetness helps balance it out.

    Man as long as you found a recipe that works for you, that’s all that matters.  

    The sauce recipe in APL’s book is quite a bit more involved, but very very good.  I need to make it again.

    From the Naked Whiz site:

    We have been meaning to try Aaron Franklin's recipe for a tomato-based BBQ sauce for some time. We wanted something for use with beef plate ribs, and this sauce really fits the bill. This is Aaron Franklin's Regular Sauce, also called his Classic Sauce. You will find this recipe in Aaron Franklin's book, Franklin Barbecue: A Meat-Smoking Manifesto. You'll also find it all over the internet on food and BBQ related websites. And you'll find they all have one thing in common: a somewhat puzzling ingredients list. We have sorted out the ingredients list for you and offer it up here for your BBQ pleasure. This sauce has some tang, a little bit of sweet and a little bit of heat. Aaron Franklin calls it a good all-purpose sauce.

    "believed the incident was an extreme case of swatting"

    Well that's a new one :confounded:
    I personally cannot see APL doing this but, people can sometimes do things that completely contradict their personality.
