Drawing on a combination of classic and boldly contemporary techniques, Raichlen presents 100 inspired recipes that capture the full range of what grillers want to cook today. Consider your basic steak. Raichlen starts with the iconic: a T-bone grilled over direct heat, smartly tattooed with grill marks and lavished (the way the pros do it) with sizzling beef fat. Then he teaches a technique new to most of us: reverse-searing. This approach allows you to grill a monster steak, such as a beef tomahawk, to perfection while also imparting a haunting smoky flavor. Of course, there’s a Caveman Sirloin: meat seared right on the coals, as dramatic as grilling gets. Plus, here’s how to blow-torch a veal chop, and how to spit-roast whole cauliflower on a rotisserie. Learn to grill mussels in hay, squash on a salt slab, and salmon steaks on a shovel over a campfire.
