On the surface, grilling, barbecuing, and tailgating are about cooking mouthwatering food. But there's a deeper reason millions of Americans love to grill: it's really about entertaining and, might we suggest, showing off. This one stop resource is filled with clever, impressive projects that you can make yourself to blow your grilling buddies away.
You won't believe the number of ways you can construct your own custom grill, smoker, or accessories. They can be built with bricks, steel barrels, old refrigerator cabinets, and much more.

BLACK+DECKER Custom Grills & Smokers tells you how to build all kinds of grills and smokers from easy-to-get, inexpensive objects and materials.
From an old-fashioned brick barbecue, to a pit to roast a whole hog, or even a 55-gallon drum to be converted to a Texas barrel smoker, tons of projects are at your disposal with full color, step-by-step instructions. Guaranteed to satisfy at any cookout or tailgate party, and definitely primed to blow away your grilling buddies.
No matter what anyone tells you, boat cooking IS different from cooking ashore. The space is smaller, there's no grocery store 5 minutes away, you have fewer prepared foods and electric appliances, and food storage is much different.
Despite cruising different oceans, we--Jan and Carolyn--both faced the same challenges: eating well while having time to enjoy all the other great aspects of cruising. We love to snorkel, swim, kayak, explore--and just sit and admire the view.
We learned with the cookbooks we both had aboard, and wished for information that wasn't available--like when Jan ended up with a frozen chicken complete with head and feet and no instructions on how to cut it up.
When we couldn't get foods such as sour cream, English muffins, spaghetti sauce or yogurt, we adapted recipes to make our own. Other times, we experimented with substituting ingredients--maybe the result wasn't identical, but it was still tasty. We ended up with over 150 substitutions and dozens of "make it yourself" options. As we traded recipes and knowledge with each other, we realized we were compiling information that became The Boat Galley Cookbook
- 800+ recipes made from readily-obtainable ingredients with hand utensils, including numerous choices to suit every taste: not just one cake but 20, 16 ways to prepare fish, 10 regional barbeque sauces, and so on.
- Step-by-step directions to give even "non-cooks" the confidence they can turn out tasty meals without prepared foods.
- Detailed instructions on unfamiliar things like making yogurt and bread, grilling virtually every food imaginable, preparing and cooking freshly-caught fish and seafood, cutting up and boning meat, cooking in a Thermos and baking on the stove top, as well as lots of tips on how to do things more easily in a tiny, moving kitchen.
- All this in an easy-to-navigate format including side tabs on the Contents to help you find your way and extensive cross reference lists at the end of each chapter. Quick Reference Lists provide idea starters: suggestions of included recipes for such categories as Mexican, Asian, and Potluck.
The Boat Galley Cookbook is designed to help you every step of the way. We hope it becomes a trusted reference on your boat, and a source of many enjoyable meals.
In 1994, Bob Garner began doing short features about barbecue for UNC-TV's statewide public-television magazine program, North Carolina Now. In 1996, he published North Carolina Barbecue: Flavored by Time, taking readers on a delectable journey across the state in search of the best examples of this distinctive North Carolina delicacy. After Garner produced a one-hour television special based on his book, he quickly became known throughout North Carolina as "the barbecue man." In 2002, he published Bob Garner's Guide to North Carolina Barbecue, which describes the 100 best barbecue restaurants from the mountains to the sea. Bob Garner's Book of Barbecue: North Carolina's Favorite Food preserves the heritage and tradition of a disappearing rural lifestyle while showing how barbecue continues to evolve. Packed full of recipes for barbecue and popular side dishes (above and beyond the traditional hush puppies, slaw, and 'nana pudding); sidebars with useful tips, barbecue-related news, and features; and profiles of past and present influential pit masters and barbecue aficionados, this tome is the definitive guide to anything and everything pertaining to North Carolina's favorite food.
Television personality, restaurant reviewer, speaker, author, pit master, and connoisseur of North Carolina barbecue, Bob Garner is the author of two previous books about barbecue. He has written extensively for Our State magazine, including "Bob Garner Eats," a 10-part series on traditional Southern foods. He has appeared on the Food Network's Paula's Home Cookin' featuring Paula Deen, and Food Nation with Bobby Flay; the Travel Channel's Road Trip; and ABC's Good Morning America. Garner was executive producer and host of the UNC-TV series Carolina Countryside and has been a featured speaker at the annual Big Apple Barbecue Block Party in New York and the Southern Foodway Alliance's annual symposium in Oxford, Mississippi. He speaks frequently to a wide variety of audiences across North Carolina. In 2011, Garner joined with Empire Properties in Raleigh, North Carolina, to work with Ed Mitchell at The Pit to promote barbecue heritage; plans include traveling across the state to host heritage dinners and pig pickings, accompanied by live bluegrass music. Garner divides his time between Burlington and Raleigh, North Carolina.
