Clarkson Potter sent me a copy of Playing With FireAND is providing a prize pack for one of my lucky readers!

The Book

Co-host of The Chew and celebrated Iron Chef and restaurateur Michael Symon returns to a favorite subject, meat, with his first cookbook focused on barbecue and live-fire grilling, with over 70 recipes inspired by his newest restaurant, Mabel’s BBQ, in his hometown of Cleveland. In preparing to open his barbecue restaurant, Mabel’s BBQ, Michael Symon enthusiastically sampled smoked meat from across America. Playing with Fire is all about BBQ and more from the Grill, Smoker, and Fireplace!!!

I mean, I could go on and on, but if he can do this to corn on the cob, imagine what he can do with Pork Chops, Rib Eye, and Chicken! My mouth is watering just thinking about all of this awesome. While I do BBQ in the winter, now that spring is close…it’s game time for this book baby!!! I can’t wait. I’m going to be hitting these recipes hard this year. My wife Vera is pleased.

The 72 finger-licking, lip-smacking recipes here draw inspiration from his favorites, including dry ribs from Memphis, wet ribs from Nashville, brisket from Texas, pork steak from St. Louis, and burnt ends from Kansas City–to name just a few–as well as the unique and now signature Cleveland-style barbecue he developed to showcase the flavors of his hometown. Michael offers expert guidance on working with different styles of grills and smokers, choosing aromatic woods for smoking, cooking various cuts of meat, and successfully pairing proteins with rubs, sauces, and sides.

If you are looking for a new guide to classic American barbecue with the volume turned to high, look no further.

Praise

“Chefs have an emotional fascination with fire, something primal and intuitive. This is not chichi food. Michael’s cooking comes from the heart, soul, and gut. Simple, straightforward, and convivial, it is the food of a true pitmaster.”
—Jacques Pépin 

“Here’s why I’m lucky . . . Michael Symon is my best friend and I’ve eaten most of the dishes in this book. I can smell the smoke and taste the fire of these recipes just by paging through the spectacular photos. The Fireplace Chicken has become legend in our friendship, and now it can all be yours.”
—Bobby Flay
