“Extreme Barbecue” takes outdoor cooking to a new place, revealing a collection of rigged-up grills made from everything from 55-gallon barrels to a metal-lined, wooden coffin. Huntley and Lednicer traveled from the San Juan Islands in Washington to the Atchafalaya Basin in Louisiana, searching backyards and alleys to find cooking rigs that turn out whole-hog barbecues, lamb rotisseries, and steaming seaweed clam bakes. The authors uncover a smoky slice of Americana passed over by the Food Network. The book features photos of the rigs, the story of the cooks behind these “odd, iron fire boxes” and more than 65 recipes. “Extreme Barbecue” earned a starred review in Publishers’ Weekly and was featured on NPR’s “Talk of the Nation.”
