There is no one kind of barbecue in Texas. This is a great way to delve into this wonderful food.

I love how Walsh gives readers such a feel for the history and varieties of TX barbecue - interspersed with savory recipes and techniques. (Actually most of his books work in this way.) Great book!

WOO! WOO! There will be some great BBQ's at my house this summer! Great recipes and tips
Good compilation of recipes from the biggies of Texas BBQ. Some useful history too.
