The South's Best Butts Book

$26.95
In The South's Best Butts, food writer and Southern gentleman, Matt Moore, waves away clouds of smoke to give barbecue-lovers a sneak peek into the kitchens and smokehouses of a handful of the Barbecue Belt's most revered pitmasters. He uncovers their tried-and-true techniques gleaned over hours, days, and years toiling by fire and spit, coaxing meltingly tender perfection from the humble pig-the foundation of Southern BBQ. More than a book of recipes, Matt explores how the marriage of meat, cooking method, and sauce varies from place to place based on history and culture, climate, available ingredients and wood, and always the closely-guarded, passed-down secrets followed like scripture. Because no meat plate is complete in the South without "all the fixin's" to round out the meal, Matt cues up patron-sanctioned recipes from every establishment he visits. One thing is for certain...this book will change the way you cook, smoke, grill, and eat, but be warned: Your own ****** may suffer in the process.
Matt Moore waves away clouds of smoke to get a sneak peek into the kitchens and smokehouses of the Barbecue Belt's most revered pitmasters. Bite by bite, he uncovers the sought-after methods and time-honored recipes that exemplify why the South is the cradle of the best 'cue.

ONE CUT, MANY METHODS Brine, rub, wood, fire, and technique: each has a part in the art of Southern barbecue, but no two pitmasters rely on the same formula or get the same result.

ALL THE FIXIN'S Pitmasters serve up their recipes for wings, smoked chicken, ribs, sausage and house specialties, plus the sides and desserts that make a meal complete.

NEW WAYS WITH 'CUE Because there's more to barbecue than sandwiches and plates, try inspired dishes like Pork Belly Tonkatsu Ramen, Cowboy Nachos, and Barbecue Pot Pie with Cheese Grits Crust.
