With their new book, Mastering the Grill, renowned cookbook authors and teachers Andrew Schloss and David Joachim lead readers through The Grillmaster's Manual, which teaches readers how to master their equipment, technique, ingredients, and flavors (including rubs, brines, marinades, and more).

Readers are then steered through the book's more than 350 comprehensive recipes, which feature not only steaks (Red Wine-Marinated Flank Steak with Wild Rice), chops (Garlic-Buttermilk Lamb Chops with Hot Pepper Honey), burgers (The Great American Hamburger and Cheeseburger), ribs (Spice-Cured Barbecued Ribs), and seafood (Miso Tuna Burgers), but vegetables and side dishes, such as Grilled Polenta with Mediterranean Vegetable Compote, and Sweet Potatoes in the Coals with Lime-Cilantro Butter. Chapter 10 even teaches how to master fruit and dessert on the grill with recipes like Shortbread S'mores and Grilled Banana Splits.

Nestled between the delectable recipes are more than 120 color photographs, 50 how-to illustrations, and grilling guides, which provide preparation methods and grilling times and techniques. Mastering the Grill is for everyone who loves to grill—whether a novice or self-proclaimed expert—and is the perfect tool to help anyone attain the coveted title of Certified Grill Master.
