Weber Big Book of Grilling & The Barbecue Bible
Pros
  • The BBQ Bible covers everything from the basics to the most exotic for different types of cuts and meats
  • Weber's Big Book of Grilling guides you through the basic prep and cooking process
Cons
  • If you colorful prefer pictures in your cookbooks, Weber's Big Book of Grilling is the way to go

Steve Raichlen has become one of the country’s top barbecue guys and is known for his popular BBQ University (formerly BBQ bootcamp) at the historic Greenbriar Resort. The Barbecue Bible is a compilation of unique recipes from a trip around the word where Raichlen sought out recipes from many different cultures. The book covers everything from the basics to the exotic and includes very detailed charts on cooking times and methods for different types and cuts of meat.

Weber’s Big Book of Grilling is another great reference guide from the folks who invented the Kettle Grill. It’s a big book filled with colorful pictures that help guide you through the prep and grilling process.

Devil's Advocate:

Although both books are great to have, if you are visual and like to have pictures as a reference, than you may prefer Weber’s book, although it is hard to match the sheer volume and breadth of information in the Barbecue Bible.
