Weeknight Grilling with the BBQ Queens

Karen Adler, Author, Judith M. Fertig, Author . Harvard Common $29.95 (242p) ISBN 978-1-55832-313-1 ISBN 978-1-55832-314-8

The authors of the BBQ Queens' Big Book of Barbecue apply their trademark can-do spirit to the ever-popular weeknight dinner format. Every dish—whether a salad, burger, steak or otherwise—can be grilled over a variety of fires, from briquettes to wood pellets, in 45 minutes (including prep time). With tiaras planted firmly atop their heads, Adler and Fertig show how to save time by using prepared supermarket items, including salad greens, hard-boiled eggs, sliced pepperoni, already-cut cheese, shredded carrots and cabbage, and three-bean salad, rationalizing, "You'll pay a little more, but isn't your sanity worth it?" Additions to each recipe—set apart in notes headed "You've Got Dinner!"—list easy and complementary side dishes, like Sautéed Green Beans to accompany Low Country Black-Eyed Peas and Grilled Jumbo Shrimp Salad with Hot Bacon Dressing (although recipes for the sides, which are generally simple, aren't offered). The introductory chapter, "Weeknight Grilling with a Tiara Touch," reveals techniques, utensils and timetables. Recipes involve many trendy ingredients (e.g., hearts of palm, baby bok choi, turkey steaks), and the sheer variety of ingredients will let home cooks call on whatever happens to be in their pantry. 2-color illus. (Apr.)
