Lobel’s Prime Time Grilling: Recipes and Tips from America’s #1 Butchers

Praise for Prime Time

“There’s no better place in the world for meat, conversation, and good old friendship.”
–Whoopi Goldberg

“For generations, the Lobel brothers have been New York’s preferred meat purveyors and trusted authorities to the carriage trade, with a staunch following among the city’s top hosts, caterers, and chefs. Now, with the tell-all publication of Prime Time, the Lobels make it possible for any literate carnivore to reach master status at the grill, whether one is in the mood for the best of all classic burgers or more cosmopolitan main events such as Honey Mustard Chicken Kabobs. Fire up!”
–Michael and Ariane Batterberry Founding Editors of Food Arts and Food & Wine magazines

“One of the best reasons I can think of for staying home is to cook myself a steak from Lobel’s. The quality is always great. They are among the nicest institutions on the East Side, and it’s fun to see a bunch of guys waving butcher knives at me every time I pass their window.”
–Tony Roberts

Praise for Everyday Barbecue
 
“Mixon does an admirable job of showing grillers, smokers, and barbecuers how they can turn labor and time-intensive grilling and barbecue projects into weekday meals with a minimum of fuss in this to-the-point collection of 150 smoke-centered recipes. . . . It’s his ingenious use of leftovers that will make readers take notice as he offers suggestions for mountains of leftover brisket, pulled pork, or chicken. This approach—rather than a multitude of variations on ribs, pulled pork and a bevy of sauces—sets the book apart and make it a keeper.”Publishers Weekly
