Gary Wiviott is a nationally recognized barbecue authority. From the popular online tutorial that started it all to his lively cooking demonstrations to teaching diehards how to run a smoker in Chicago's notoriously brutal winter, he is committed to spreading the gospel of low and slow barbecue. He is the co-founder of the Windy City Barbecue Classic, and is the pitmaster at Barn & Company, a bustling barbecue restaurant. He lives in Chicago, Illinois. Colleen Rush is a freelance food and travel writer, and the author of The Mere Mortal's Guide to Fine Dining. Her work appears regularly in national magazines, newspapers, and online publications. She lives, eats, and works mostly in New Orleans, Louisiana, but also ... everywhere else.
The palate pleasing, appetite satisfying, kitchen cook friendly recipes themselves range from Smoked Brisket; Standing Rib Roast; Smoked Salmon; and Smoke-Roasted Leg of Lamb; to Smoked Fresh Ham; Grilled Corn; Basic Buttermilk Brine; Szechuan Five-Spice Rub; and Salsa Verde. Low & Slow 2: The Art of Barbecue, Smoke-Roasting, and Basic Curing will prove to be an enduringly popular and much referred to addition for personal and family cookbook collections. Indeed, no community library's cookbook collections should be without a copy. --Midwest Book Review
