Chef Adam Perry Lang‘s new book, “BBQ 25,” takes outdoor grilling back to its rugged roots. Highlighting 25 of the most commonly barbecued items, Lang’s instructional cookbook is perfect for any level of culinary interest.


“BBQ 25” is not your average cookbook. Made of thick, cardboard-like pages, the book is wind, water and stain resistant, making it an ideal companion for outdoor grilling.


Following a simple layout the picture book easily illustrates how to prepare and grill each type of meat, fish or veggie. Recipes are complete in ten steps or less, with the important measures highlighted in red. Straightforward hints and tips along with a glossary of techniques keep the book well-organized and easy to use.


With a foreword by Jamie Oliver, BBQ 25 offers the best advice from veteran chefs on how to create flavorful, ultra tender grilled items without spending a lot or requiring much time.
