More Than 400 Recipes for Grilling Everything

Click to buy Fire It Up


With more than 400 recipes that teach you how to cook anything and everything on a grill, this exceptional guide to grilling goes beyond the science of meat and flame. Fire It Up is the first grilling primer that's all about ingredients—and building maximum flavor into whatever you grill.

A chapter on grilling methods and equipment will bring novices up to speed and teach old hands a thing or two, while a chapter packed with flavoring tips and dozens of dry rubs, fresh rubs and pastes, brines, marinades (and a mop), sauces, relishes, and glazes will keep your menu varied. Helpful charts and tables in each chapter break out cooking methods, meat cuts, temperatures and grilling times (and include exotic possibilities such as squirrel, possum, and gator for the more adventurous) accompany tips for buying and handling proteins.

And then there are the recipes! Beef lovers will enjoy everything from the Ultimate Burger to Grilled Carpaccio of Shoulder Tender and Barbecued Beef Cheeks. Pork fans will devour Pig Candy and Coriander Spareribs with Lime Brine. Main dishes of veal, venison, lamb, rabbit, chicken, fish, seafood and more pair perfectly with vegetable sides like Mixed Grilled Beets with Orange-Hazelnut Gremolata. Add an unexpected grilled fruit dish (Grilled Pear Soup with Porcini and Gorgonzola), a bread (Grilled Chickpea Chapati with Cilantro Sesame Sauce), and dessert—yes, dessert (Grilled Rum Raisin Ice Cream Sandwiches)—and you've got an entire meal (and many more) cooked over an open flame.
