Meathead: The Science of Great Barbecue and Grilling

The founder of the destination website applies the latest scientific research to barbecuing and grilling, including 200 recipes

For succulent results every time, nothing is more crucial than understanding the science behind the interaction of fire and food. In this definitive guide to the concepts, methods, and equipment of barbecuing and grilling, “Meathead” Goldwyn shatters the myths that stand in the way of perfection. “Busted” misconceptions include: 

  • Meat should be brought to room temperature before cooking: In fact, cold meat absorbs smoke better.
  • Hardwood charcoal is better than briquets: Actually, there’s no difference in flavor, and briquets last longer.
  • Meat needs to rest after grilling to reabsorb its juices: Tests show it does not take up juices but can become cold and overcooked.

Meathead reveals everything backyard heroes need to know, including how to decide when to use a dry rub or a brine and a detailed roundup of equipment—from grills and grates to the best thermometers. 


Lavishly designed with full-color photos and illustrations, this book contains all the sure-fire recipes for traditional American favorites: Tennessee Hollerin’ Sauce, Last Meal Ribs, Simon & Garfunkel Chicken, Schmancy Smoked Salmon, Roman-Style No-Knead Pizza, and Ultimate Corn on the Cob.

The AMNTS adds additional smoke at cooking temps, regardless if your pellet grill/smoker is burning pellets or not. It can also be used in many other types of smokers or grills, where grate space is limited. Just like the other smokers we sell, the AMNTS will produce great smoke for cold smoking as well. The 12″ AMNTS will burn up to 4 hours and the 18″ AMNTS will burn for up to 6 hours, depending on the smoker temps, type of pellets and draft inside your smoker.

Winter Grilling

Rarely does barbecue come to mind in the subzero climates of winter, but Austrian grilling master Tom Heinzle has other ideas. Winter Grilling―already a bestseller abroad―is Heinzle’s testament to the joys of outdoor cooking, even when the outdoors would have most heading in.

Real grilling enthusiasts know that firing up the grill is not confined to any one season, and that in fact the blistering charcoal and wafts of hot air which emanate from the grill on a snowy winter’s day can produce a sensation that is uniquely exhilarating. With a set of hearty recipes tailored specifically to seasonal tastes, Heinzle introduces North American readers to a tradition that is sure to spark some new ideas and keep them burning all winter long.

Eschewing the usual hamburger/hot dog fare, Winter Grilling features recipes for wild game like boar, hare, turkey and duck, and couples them with seasonal sides like pumpkin, turnip, cabbage, fennel and sweet chestnuts. The additional use of unique and festive spices means a wonderland of possible flavours. 

With recipes suited to all types of grill, be they wood, charcoal or gas, Winter Grilling is a savory way to stay warm this winter and a cookbook you’ll want to get your mittens on.
