You can take the long hard road to the title of pitmaster by trial and error, but you should know that it has taken generations of handed down knowledge for the best to get to where they are today. Skip way up towards the front of the line by learning from the best of the best. Pitmaster, is a book that features a different master in each chapter imparting their golden gems to you. From the basics to seriously high skill recipes, Andy Husbands and Chris Hart have put together the list of pros who can get you miles beyond your current backyard barbecue status. It’s just $13 in hardcover. I’d recommend getting that instead of the kindle, so you can keep it by the grill and not worry about damaging your tech.
