With cowriters Stephanie Banyas and Sally Jackson, celebrity chef and Food Network star Flay (Bobby Flay's Bar American Cookbook) deconstructs the backyard barbecue, sharing equipment recommendations, entertaining tips, and elegant, accessible recipes. Dishes like smoked sausage with green tomato chowchow relish and grilled lobster tails with lemon-Fresno butter can be made on either a gas or charcoal grill. There are plenty of cocktails and appetizers but no desserts. VERDICT This striking barbecue cookbook shares a name with Flay's Emmy Award-winning TV series. Beautiful photographs and straightforward instructions will encourage readers to get grilling. (c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
