“It’s classic American barbecue with the volume turned to high…”
When it comes to cooking, one thing I’m a big fan of is meat. Here at Rock Father HQ, my wife and daughters eat poultry, but when it comes to pork, fish or my favorite – red meat, I’m the only genuine, 100% carnivorous meat-eater in the bunch. That said, when a copy of Chef Michael Symon‘s new book arrived… let’s just say the cover alone was mouthwatering. Now, publisher Clarkson Potter has teamed-up with The Rock Father™ to give YOU a shot at winning Michael Symon’s Playing with Fire: BBQ and More from the Grill, Smoker, and Fireplace plus a Masterbuilt Charcoal Bullet Smoker! It’s the perfect way to celebrate the arrival of spring and the coming days with more time spent grilling outside and crafting great meals to share with your family.
Co-host of The Chew and celebrated Iron Chef and restaurateur Michael Symon returns to a favorite subject, meat, with his first cookbook focused on barbecue and live-fire grilling, with over 70 recipes inspired by his newest restaurant, Mabel’s BBQ, in his hometown of Cleveland. In preparing to open his barbecue restaurant, Symon enthusiastically sampled smoked meat from across America.
I’ve actually eaten at Michael Symon’s other Cleveland restaurant, Lola, but now I’m all about another visit to Ohio just to check out Mabel’s BBQ. In Playing With Fire, Michael presents 72 finger-licking, lip-smacking recipes that draw inspiration from his favorites, including dry ribs from Memphis, wet ribs from Nashville, brisket from Texas, pork steak from St. Louis, and burnt ends from Kansas City–to name just a few–as well as the unique and now signature Cleveland-style barbecue he developed to showcase the flavors of his hometown. Symon offers expert guidance on working with different styles of grills and smokers, choosing aromatic woods for smoking, cooking various cuts of meat, and successfully pairing proteins with rubs, sauces, and sides.
