A Best Book of 2018:
Chicago Tribune

“Chefs have an emotional fascination with fire, something primal and intuitive. This is not chichi food. Michael’s cooking comes from the heart, soul, and gut. Simple, straightforward, and convivial, it is the food of a true pitmaster.”
—Jacques Pépin 

“Here’s why I’m lucky . . . Michael Symon is my best friend and I’ve eaten most of the dishes in this book. I can smell the smoke and taste the fire of these recipes just by paging through the spectacular photos. The Fireplace Chicken has become legend in our friendship, and now it can all be yours.”
—Bobby Flay

“I’ve long been a fan of Michael Symon—his genuine enthusiasm, wild talent, and love of food are evident in anything he touches. Over the years, I’ve watched him develop a deep love for and embrace the culture of barbecue. At Mabel’s, he applied his immense skills to create a flavor profile that reflects his unique heritage and geography, and here he shares all that and more. In this book, readers can join his world and learn from one of best as Michael offers his tips, tricks, and techniques for smoking meat. Anyone who loves barbecue will devour this book.”
—Mike Mills, 17th Street Barbecue, author Praise the Lard and Peace, Love & Barbecue

“This is an excellent guide to live-fire cooking.”
—Publishers Weekly
