John Egerton author of "Southern Food: At Home, on the Road, in History" Dotty Griffith deserves the Nobel Peace Prize for attempting to bring the warring tribes of American barbecue into a demilitarized pit zone for a serious exchange of meats and sauces. Only the most narrow-minded true believer could resist her ecumenical appeal to the higher virtues of pan-American 'cue.

W. Park Kerr founder, El Paso Chile Company, and distiller, Tequila Nacional BBQ: it's not about a food, it's about a lifestyle. In "Celebrating Barbecue, " Dotty tempts, teases, torments, and slow-cooks us through the world of 'cue. She leaves me with four questions: Memphis or Kansas City ribs, Old-Fashioned Banana Pudding or Fried Fruit Pies for dessert, how soon can I get the grill going, and does she offer home delivery?
Paul Kirk author of "Paul Kirk's Championship Barbecue Sauces""Celebrating Barbecue" has what I look for in a cookbook. It's not just a barbecue cookbook, it's history and tradition.

John F. Mariani food and travel columnist for "Esquire" magazine; author of "The Encyclopedia of American Food & Drink" and coauthor of "Grilling for Dummies" A lot of grilling books have gotten away from where the real focus on outdoor cooking should be -- celebrating barbecue -- which just happens to be the title and great appeal of Dotty Griffith's delectably comprehensive and rigorously authentic book on America's greatest contribution to the culinary arts.
