Al Roker's Big Bad Book of Barbecue: More Than 125 Recipes for Family Celebrations All Year Long

Al Roker's Big Bad Book of Barbecue: More Than 125 Recipes for Family Celebrations All Year Long Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Al Roker’s aha! moment came a decade ago. He was closing in on 350 pounds when he promised his dying father that he wasn’t going to keep living as he was. That led to his decision for a stomach bypass—and his life-changing drop to 190. But fifty of those pounds gradually crept back until he finally devised a plan, stuck to it, and got his life back.

Never Going Back is Roker’s inspiring, candid, and often hilarious story of self-discovery, revealing a (now slimmer) side of his life that no one knows. With illuminating and sometimes painfully honest stories about his childhood (as the “husky” boy in class), his struggle against the odds to make something of himself, and his family life today, Roker reveals the effects that a lifelong battle with weight issues can have on a person—and how, regardless of the frustration and setbacks, you must never lose faith in yourself (just inches).

Al is telling his story to inspire others to lose the weight they’ve always wanted to lose, keep it off for good, and regain their health. He knows firsthand that it is a day-to-day process and that unrealistic diets rarely work (he has tried most of them!). And, most important, he knows that losing weight is as much—if not more—a state of mind as of body. That’s why he’s here: to recharge your willpower and see you through it like a friend—with warmth, humor, and a healthy new outlook on life.

About the Author

Al Roker began his broadcasting career as a weekend weatherman in Syracuse, New York, while still in college. After stops in Washington, D.C., and Cleveland, Ohio, he landed at NBC in 1983, where he is seen every day on "Today."

Al produces and stars in specials on the Food Network, most recently, "The Making of Al Roker's Big, Bad Book of Barbecue." He is also the author of the New York Times bestseller Don't Make Me Stop This Car! Al Roker lives in New York City and upstate New York with his wife, ABC News correspondent Deborah Roberts, and their two daughters.

I've tried to come up with a book that you'll really use. Let's face it. We're talking about grilling and barbecuing here....This is not rocket science. This book is about starting your own traditions. Making your own way in the world of barbecue and grilling....

I guess I've always wanted to write a cookbook, to be able to help people make meals that they would be proud to serve to family and friends. After all, that's what cooking is all about. It means you care. We equate home cooking with love. I look at barbecue and grilling as a representation of love in edible form.

I want to help you give the people you care about a whole lotta love.
