Product Details


“Cinder blocks, pits, split logs, and hot coals are the roots of barbecue and the lifeblood of Pat Martin. He’s a true friend with an old-school soul, and has barbecue knowledge second to none. Do you have a pit big enough to handle his barbecue inspiration? You soon will.”—Chris Lilly

“Life of Fire is quite simply the most practical and profound barbecue bible to date. As Pat Martin walks us through the differences between spit, block pit, smokehouse, hog-in-the-ground and open-pit preparations, the connection between West Tennessee barbecue joints and our earliest ancestors who controlled fire seasons the journey.”—Alice Randall

Life of Fire will change how you feel about barbecue forever. I can smell and taste the history on these pages and can’t wait to fire up the spits and dig even deeper into this love letter to proper barbecue.”—Michael Symon

“When true legends share their lives with us you stop, listen, you tend to the fire and coals like God is watching. Pat Martin is my higher power for hog cookery.”—Matty Matheson

“I’ve eaten at as many barbecue joints as anyone across the nation and I can get down with anybody when it comes to cookin’ meat low and slow, hot and fast, you name it.  But DDD O.G. Pat Martin is an old-school pitmaster whose West Tennessee style is at the very foundation of what it means to cook over coals. Life of Fire is about as close as most of us will get to the true soul and tradition of pit barbecue.”—Guy Fieri

“Pat Martin’s passion for his craft and the legend he has become in the barbecue world is inspiring. He’s a magician who can coax flavor out of the simplest ingredients.”—Maneet Chauhan
