Best BBQ Books/ Cookbooks?
Only book I have is Franklin's Smoked Meat Manifesto. Learned a ton from it.

What other good bbq books are out there?

This one popped up as a recommendation when I added the Franklin Meat Manifesto to my cart. I'm glad to see a personal recommendation for it because I planned to buy it too.

I also ordered a set of 3 Steven Raich Project Smoke Spice Rub Seasonings (Carolina Pit Powder, Kansas City Smoke Rub, Santa Fe Coffee Rub) as stocking stuffers. I'm not sure about these since he usually makes his own seasonings so if anyone has used them please let me know if they're worth trying.

I guess we can hope his book is better than his BBQ. It was really bland. My advice: go with the Texans when it comes to smoking meat.

Its BBQ, a book is a good place to start for a total novice. However, everyone will learn what works best for them and do that. Chris LIlly and Aaron Franklins books are good to start with. Ultimately it is trial and error that win the day not a book.

Low & Slow: Master the Art of Barbecue in 5 Easy Lessons, Gary Wiviott

This one is good, especially for a beginner. It starts you with chicken and works you through more challenging cooks, with detailed explanations and pics of how to set up the fire for each cook for kettle, WSM, or offset. It has good discussions of marinades, brines, smoke woods, and various techniques.

It's more a book to be read cover to cover to learn technique, as opposed to a recipe book to flip through and pick one. But it does have plenty of recipes for marinades, rubs, dishes, etc.

He orders that you do everything his way the first time, and some folks get butthurt by the tone, but I took it as tongue-in-cheek and enjoyed it.
