    Table of Contents

    Introduction: Three Years on the Barbecue Trail

    A CRASH COURSE ON GRILLING AND BARBECUING

    Everything you need to know in order to grill and barbecue like a pro--in no time flat. How to master direct and indirect grilling; pit barbecuing; grilling on a rotisserie; and grilling without a grate. What to look for in equipment; how to buy the right fuel, how to light it, and how to keep it lit. Plus the scoop on accesories.

    The Ten Commandments of Perfect Grilling

    THIRST QUENCHERS

    Cooking over a hot grill can work up a powerful thirst, and pit masters world-wide know that there are more ways to quench it than with beer. Here, then, is a mix of coolers--with and without alcohol--to accompany any barbecue.

    The Afghan Grill

    WARM-UPS

    Set your barbecue off to the happiest start with a selection of appetizing openers: Silver Paper Chicken, Hong Kong Honey-Glazed Wings, Shrimp Mousse on Sugarcane. Or how about a smoky Grilled Corn Chowder? They're all so good they taste like the main event themselves.

    The Vietnamese Grill

    Stalking the Elusive Grilled Snail

    BLAZING SALADS

    Salads play two roles in the world of barbecue. Some, like Grilled Vegetable Caponata and Grilled Pork with a Sweet-Tart Dressing, are themselves grilled dishes. Others set off a grilled dish perfectly. You need go no farther than this chapter to enjoy both kinds.

    GRILLED BREAD

    From irresistible Grilled Garlic Bread Fingers to catalan Tomato Bread to from-scratch Tandoori-Baked Flat Breads--whether ready-made of homemade, the grill gives bread unmatched flavor and crispness.

    WHAT'S YOUR BEEF

    Texas-Style Barbecued Brisket and Brazillian Stuffed Rib Roast; Stet's Steak and Bengali Shish Kebabs; Saigon Market Beef Sticks and Korean Grilled Short Ribs. Beef on the grill--savory, succulent, sensational--a perfect match of food and fire.

    Matambre: A Hunger-Killer from South America

    Hawkers' Centers

    Jerk: The Jamaican Barbecue

    A LITTLE LAMB

    So many of the world' barbecuers love to grill lamb that it's no wonder the selection of dishes is outstanding. Try Capetown Lamb from South Africa, "Onion Water" Lamb Chops from Afghanistan, and The Real Turkish Shish Kebab from Turkey (of course!).

    A Traditional Barbacoa

    The Moroccan Grill

    GROUND MEAT, BURGERS, AND SAUSAGES

    The U.S. might have the best burgers, but wait till you taste the ground meat concoctions the rest of the world has to offer--Indonesian Flying Fox Sates, Oasis Kebabs from the Middle East, The Original Karim's Seekh Kebab from India--proving that the appeal of flavorful ground meat is universal.

    From Hamburg to Hoboken: A Brief History of the Hamburger

    Of Koftas, Lyulyas, and Seekh Kebabs

    BIRDS MEETS GRILL

    The world loves a great grilled chicken, and here are the recipes to help you achieve greatness: Thai Chicken Sates Served in Lettuce Leaves, Sea Captain's Chicken Tikka, and Bahamian Grilled Chicken, to name a few. But don't overlook other birds that cook up deliciously on the grill, as well--check out the recipes for quail, duck, and turkey.

    HOT SHELLS: LOBSTERS, SHRIMP, SCALLOPS and CLAMS

    The Brazilian Grill

    VEGETABLES: GREENS MEET GRILL

    There is probably no better way to heighten the natural flavor of a vegetable than by grilling. Proof is no farther away than Georgian Vegetable Kebabs, Tandoori Cauliflower, Argentinian Grilled Eggplant, Chorizo Grilled Mushrooms, and wonderfully warming Grilled Sweet Potatoes with Sesame Dipping Sauce.

    The Japanese Grill

    VEGETARIAN GRILL

    No longer only just for meat-eaters, now you can serve up a complete range of vegetarian dishes at a barbecue, including The Original Grilled Pizza, exotic Indian Spinach-Cheese Kebabs, a lush Provencal Dagwood, and steak-like Grilled Portobello Mushroom Sandwiches with Basil Aioli.

    The Indian Grill

    RICE, BEANS, AND BEYOND

    Most of the world's great grilled dishes are accompanied by flavorfully prepared grains and beans. Dig into Persian-syle Steamed Rice and Quick and Smoky Baked Beans. And for something less expected, how about a Grilled Yorkshire Pudding?

    A Day with Najmieh Batmanglij: The Persian Grill

    SIDEKICKS: PICKLES, RELISHES, SALSAS and SLAWS

    Bring on the condiments, those savory, fiery, sweet, and utterly satisfying go-withs that dress up any barbecue.

    SAUCES

    All great pit masters are judged on their barbecue sauces and you'll match the best of them with this far-reaching collection. From a sweet-sour Basic Barbecue Sauce to a contemporary Ginger-Plum Barbecue Sauce to a mouth-scorching Portuguese piri-piri, there are plenty to match any grilled fish.

    The Four Styles of American Barbecue

    RUB IT IN

    Memphis Rub and Indian Roasted Spice Powder; Mexican Smoked Chile Marinade and Teriyaki Marinade; Roquefort Butter, Ketjap Butter, and Bourbon Butter Basting Sauce. A full selection of rubs, marinades, butters, and bastes add zip to even the simplest fare.

    FIRE AND ICE: DESSERTS

    No great barbecue is complete without a great dessert. Whether you end with a final flourish on the grill or with a luscious frozen dessert, you won't go wrong. Don't forget to leave room for Grilled Sugar-Dipped Pineapple, Balinese Grilled Bananas in Coconut Milk Caramel, Persian Lemon and Rosewater "Sundae" with Sour Cherry Syrup, and Coconut Ice Cream.
