Jamie Deen and Bobby Deen are Paula Deen's sons. When she started her sandwich business, she would have sons work as salesmen. That was before the restaurant, television shows, cookbooks, etc. Now Paula Deen is famous and her sons are too.This cookbook is non-threatening for those who aren't culinary artists, professional chefs, or skilled chefs but to those of us who don't cook at all. This book is colorful, lively, and enjoyable.The book is divided into four parts: "On the Grill" with a focus on Chicken, Steaks, and Other Hunks of Meat; Hot Sammies, Flatbreads, and Pizzas; and Smoky Sides.The second part is "On The Field" with a focus on tasty skewers; burgers and dawgs; and snacks, sides, and pregame bites. This is for the tailgating crowd at football games.The third part is "On The Blanket" for picnics in the parks or on the beach. They include Sandwiches and Wraps On the Go; Salads That Travel" and Finger Foods, Dips, and Nibbles.The fourth part is "On The Beach" for the beach going public out there. They include "Dishes with Fishes" and "Seaside Sippers."The book is a fun look at cooking and life with the Deens. The Deen brothers love to barbeque and grill as well. The pictures are fabulous and you can't help but like them.
The Deen brothers - the sons of southern cook Paula Deen have compiled one of the better grilling books around. This should help the griller in your life - beginner or not, cook a bit better. There are tips on most pages and pages of explanations such as; how to tell when meat is done, the difference between direct and indirect heat. These are not out of the world gourmet creations, but recipes on how to accomplish some good grilling with some twists in some of the techniques to add some difference.There are more than 125 recipes divided into sections: on the grill, field, the blanket and beach. Included are recipes for chicken, steak, other `hunks' of meat, sammies, flatbreads, pizzas, smoky sides, skewers, burgers, dawgs, snacks, sandwiches and wraps, foods that travel, finger foods, and dips, fish, drinks. The hamburgers and dawgs are wonderful. There are pictures for many of the recipes and pictures of the family. Sometimes a recipe that could have used a picture is missed, such as tuna salad wheels might have used an illustration.Some of our family favorites have been the BBQ, beer can shandies, beer can chicken with pickled Vidalia onions and a company favorite: five-star filet mignon stuffed with mushrooms and onions, sweet potato coins with creamy honey drizzle will win over even those who are not fans of that vegetable, also Vidalia onion and beer dip.One great thing about their instructions is the help it gives including not forgetting that some of us out here are still charcoal grillers, so there are instructions for both when needed. This is a great idea for a Father's Day gift or any other griller that you know.
They have a lot of imagination and do know what men like! Big surprise they are men.Some of it women like too and that is a plus. Just wish they had a magic wand to go with the book to wave over your spouse tomove him to be as kitchen/grill savvy as the Deen Bros....still it is a good cook book.
Warning: have your grill ready before you open this book...the broiler isn't going to cut it! Lots of creative ideas for cooking great meals outdoors, no matter what your taste. A perfect gift for the avid griller in your life. So good, your guy won't mind some of these recipes on his honey-do list, either!
None of the fat and calorie-laden fare their mother pushes but good-for-you food that's really good! Made me want to run right out and fire up the grill. We've already made several of the recipes and they are delicious. I recommend this highly to the advanced grillmaster or the novice. Your attempts will be tastefully successful.
I have read many cookbooks in my time, and a good number of them have been "grilling" books. Many of those cookbooks include recipes for salads, side dishes, accompaniments, and desserts, to go along with the grilled food. The Deen brothers have included similar recipes, but almost all of them are grilled! From cornbread to cake, grilling is involved in 99% of the recipes in this book. Personally, I can take grilled food or leave it- and in my apartment, I can't have a grill that doesn't say "Foreman" on it. Still I checked this book out from the library, hoping to find some yummy recipes to take along to the many family gatherings I will attend this summer. I didn't find a single one I liked. I was extremely disappointed because I have enjoyed all the cookbooks the Deen family has produced. I can't say that I would recommend this book to anyone, unless they just love to grill (and even then, I don't remember seeing anything I just had to try.)
VERY WELL WRITTEN. WONDERFUL RECEIPES. KNOWLEDGEABLE IN FOOD PRODUCTS AND VERY PERSONABLE IN RELATING TO PEOPLE WHO ARE NOVICES AS WELL AS CHEFS IN COOKING. LOVE THE DEAN'S, ALL OF THEM.
I must admit...I was pretty disappointed with this book. I thought the recipes, were generic and the references to The South and the GA Bulldogs got a bit tiresome. I personally think that their first three cookbooks are much better.
