Inspiration: Better Homes & Gardens Barbecue

Remember our hot dog buffet post from last week? The graphic from that post came from our new favorite cookbook, The Better Homes & Gardens Barbecue Book. The pages are full of outdoor cooking "techniques" but most of all, fantastic pictures! Check out a few of our favorites...

We're not sure if it's the vintage station wagon tail gate party or the pool side cookout (which they reminded us we could use our diving boards for a buffet line) that won us over first, but any way you look at it, these vintage outdoor cooking photos are at least good for a laugh!

We of course had to include the corndogs displayed in cabbage photo. Don't they just look.... appealing? Make sure to keep your eye out for vintage reads next time you are digging through stacks of cookbooks at auctions or garage sales! Even if you don't use them for the recipes they are still great eye candy!
