Other highlights: Cookbooks like this just make me long — oh, the longing —for the day in the hopefully not-too-distant future when I live some place where I can have my own grill. Because Pitt Cue Co. is the kind of cookbook that makes you want to run cancel all your plans and spend all day in deep communion with your grill. They talk about turning your grill into a smoker, which cuts to smoke and which to grill, how to source the best meat, and oh so much more information that just feeds my wannabe-griller self.

Luckily, there's plenty in this cookbook to keep me occupied until such time as I am grilling ready: bourbon cocktails, nibbles and side dishes, out of this world pickles, choice desserts, and lots of sauces and other condiments. Late summer neighborhood cook-0uts, here I come.
