I am the sad combination of a poor typist who is lazy, so here follows a cut-'n-paste of the review I just posted on Amazon: 5.0 out of 5 stars "This Is The Book That SHOULD be included with every Kamado cooker that is sold. If a person is simply looking for a/another collection of recipes, this is not your book. If a person is interested in 87 different rubs or 93 different marinades or 107 different barbecue sauces, this book will sadly disappoint. If, on the other hand, a person is genuinely wanting to explore all (well, maybe not "all", but at least 27 or so) DIFFERENT ways the Kamado can be used, with realistic recipes providing good, solid examples of those techniques, then this is the book to buy. The author's introduction says "I want to provide Kamado owners with inspiration and a toolkit of ideas to help them explore what their ceramic cookers can do." He accomplished that goal with flair, photos, and style." It is interesting to note Amazon's variable pricing ... the book I bought for myself on June 24 was $18.23. The one I just ordered for my son was $18.59. He's a good kid, however, so I guess he's worth the additional $0.36.
