Whether you want to cook a BBQ on the beach, at a campsite, in your garden, or even on your balcony, James Whetlor showcases over ten different BBQs you can actually build yourself.
You’ll never use a store-bought instant BBQ tray again as James guides you through the DIY BBQ section with handy illustrations, photographs, and tips and techniques. BBQs include a Konro—a small portable Japanese grill, a Washing Machine Drum BBQ, a Tandoor oven made from a flowerpot, an Open-faced Grill made from bricks or breeze blocks, a Simple Dutch Oven, and a Whole Pig Smoker. There’s even an Oil Drum BBQ—a versatile and simple take on the traditional oil drum barbecues used the world over.
And once you’ve mastered the art of barbecue building, there are 50 stunning recipes that you will turn to time and time again. Including Sri Lankan Black Pork Curry, Mushroom Tacos, and Thai Fishcake Skewers, as well as the show-stopping recipe for cooking a pig in the pig smoker—this is a fun and affordable way to take your BBQing to the next level.
