For us, summer is the perfect time of the year to gather all our friends around a great barbecue. We’ve been reviewing barbecue cookbooks, so you always have a source of inspiration for new and delicious barbecue recipes. To continue with the barbecue topic, in this week cookbook review, we decided to bring you the BBQ&A with Myron Mixon Cookbook.
Have you ever wondered if you can make a good barbecue without a smoker, pit, or grill? If you need to use a rub or marinade? Not sure what a brisket is, whether you need to trim it, and if so, how? In BBQ&A with Myron Mixon, bestselling author and TV personality Myron Mixon will have the answers to these questions and much more. Myron’s lively, informative answers are paired with practical visuals and cover techniques and methods, flavors and preparations, recipes and formulas – all collected in one place for the first time by the winningest man in barbecue.
Myron Mixon is a man that doesn’t need any introduction!

In fact, this, question-answer approach is one of the things that stands out most in the book. Basically, BBQ&A with Myron Mixon consists of a series of questions, then answers, and then a few recipes to put the techniques into action.
