Foodie Freebie Friday: Low & Slow

Welcome back from the weekend! Hope you enjoyed the time with some fun and delicious eats. This weekend, my culinary adventures included sausage making, which you can read all about here!

Speaking of sausage, it's one of those things that are great on the grill... and if you enjoy BBQ, this week's Foodie Freebie Friday is right up your alley! A recent book has hit the bookshelves and you have the opportunity to have an autographed copy, compliments of Gary Wiviott and Colleen Rush who co-authored, Low & Slow BBQ: Mastering the Art of Barbeque in 5 Easy Lessons.

Both Gary and Colleen are amazing foodies here in Chicago who I've gotten to know and learn from within the Chicago food community. Gary heads up an amazing food goldmine website, LTH Forum, and Colleen is also a friend who has authored a number of books. Together they bring the art of BBQ in an easy and approachable way.

Fellow Carnivores,

After two years of toiling over live charcoals, many pounds of pork consumed, and countless hours getting the details right with Barbecue Life Coach Gary Wiviott, I am pleased to announce the release of “Low & Slow: Master the Art of Barbecue in 5 Easy Lessons” (Running Press).
If you love barbecue, or love someone who loves barbecue, this book is a must-have. But don’t take my word for it. Here’s what Garry Howard, esteemed barbecue guru and founder of The Smoke Ring, had to say:
I have seen a lot of barbecue books and I say without hesitation that this is the first true barbecue how-to book ever published. But don't think [the] book is only for the novice. It includes numerous tried and true recipes as well as advice on developing your own signature rubs, sauces and marinades. There are numerous tips, techniques and nuggets of wisdom that will benefit even the most experienced and jaded barbecue cook. I highly recommend this book as an essential addition to any barbecue bookshelf.
