    My long-standing suggestion has always been Smokestack Lightning. It is less of a cook book, more of a tome on the origins, history and contemporary interpretation of what BBQ is to us today. Getting back to your request, it is rich with recipes that were uncovered in the authors' journey through the south and west in search of the best BBQ. Definetly worth a spot on your shelf... next to the jar of dry rub and above of the sack of pine chips!!

    Check out Stephen Reichlen's Barbecue books. Here is the link to the listing of his books at Amazon. www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/search-handle-form/104-9240054-7689502
    Uh.. That looks a little weird, but try it anyway.

    His books are very informative about all kinds of techniques with well tested recipes. I use his books as a reference all the time. A good source all around.

    I agree with foodnfoto, the Raichlen books are very good. For slow cooking (smoking) recipes and information, check out Smoke & Spice : Cooking with Smoke, the Real Way to Barbecue by Cheryl Alters Jamison.

    Weber's Big Book of Grilling and its predecessor, Weber's Art of the Grill are good too.

    The BBQ FAQ is an excellent source of information for beginners and seasoned veterans. It can be downloaded from here: http://www.eaglequest.com/~bbq/

    You may also download the BBQ FAQ recipes from here:

    Enjoy your new grill Spoons!

    I'll throw in another vote for Smoke and Spice. It's a fun and informative book.
