Since the dawn of man, we've been putting hunks of meat over the fire and salivating with anticipation while the roasty, meaty cooking smells draw a hungry crowd.
We may have refined the process a little over the last 2.5 million years, but the fact is that searing a steak or a burger over a flame-licked grill is still one of the most satisfying ways to cook, especially for friends.
This book is your guide to getting the absolute best out of your barbecue - whether it's a modest charcoal bucket or a gas-burning beast with all of the bells and whistles - we've got the best recipes to please a crowd.
And... for those non-meat eaters (scandalous!), there's even a (delicious and generous) handful of vegetarian options too - as well as chapters on chicken, beef, lamb, pork and seafood, not forgetting a great selection of desserts that work on the barbecue.
