Thank you NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review this book.

Chiles and Smoke is a great cookbook with different recipes involving, well, chiles and smoke. Great categories in the book; brisket, burgers, wings, ribs, seafood, salads, and sides. Beautiful pictures, great info on heat and how to use the chiles. Awesome instructions and easy to follow recipes.

The Ancho-Orange Pulled Pork, Cheesesteak Queso, and Grilled Chicken Tinga all looks and sounds amazing. I can't wait to make those and try for myself.

Three of my favourite things all rolled in to one great cookbook. Food, BBQ, Chiles!

I love this book for all its information, ideas, recipes and great photos. This is a book I will use regularly and will enjoy. My partner is a lover of the BBQ and he loves when I can provide some new ways of doing things.

It is a book that is easy to follow and easy to use and with so much useful information you can't go wrong. I love the rub recipes, the condiments and pretty much every recipe in this book.

All I can say now is YUM and I'm Hungry!

Quick Summary: A “when can I come over to eat at your house - I ain’t playing” cookbook

My Review: Chiles and Smoke: BBQ, Grilling, and Other Fire-Friendly Recipes with Spice and Flavor by Brad Prose is honestly a masterpiece. I loved this book!

As a foodie and a confessed amateur when it comes to barbecuing and grilling, I was a very ready pupil when I saw this book. This book lured me in with its title and kept me interested with its content. The pictures alone were worth their weight in gold. Reading through the inspiring pages was mind blowing.

While I knew I could learn a lot from this book, I never imagined just how nourishing it would be. It’s detailed, informative, entertaining, and yummy-licious. It’s so much more than I had in mind.

My Final Say: This book will definitely be going on my best eats food shelf. I even plan to give it to my grill-loving partner as a gift. Bon appétit, my fellow foodies! You’ve got to get this book as soon as you are able to do so.

Rating: 5/5
Recommend: Yes
Audience: Food enthusiasts and those who love and support the power of the grill
Favorites Shelf: Yes
Keeper: Yes
Hard copy or e-copy: While both can be appreciated, I would recommend securing your own hard copy. This is certainly a book that should be experienced and savored in full. You will want to keep your copy in hand, trust me.
Other: This would make a fantastic gift.

Sincere appreciation is extended to the author, to the publisher, and to NetGalley, who provided access to this title in exchange for an honest review. The words I have shared are my own thoughts and opinions and have not been influenced by the aforementioned in any way.
