By the end of a few brief chapters, you’ll know the hows and whys of every aspect of grilling.And then come the recipes: soups, beef, pork, lamb, chicken, fish and shellfish, vegetables, and desserts-an array of sixty fantastic dishes, representing a broad range of cuisines, from down-home favorites such as Chile-Rubbed BBQ Hickory Ribs to updated classics such as Pine Nut-Crusted Rack of Lamb with Grilled Asparagus to Far East-inspired Lemongrass-Speared Chicken Satay with Thai Peanut Sauce.
