Show 252, December 16, 2017: Barbecue Whisperer Meathead Goldwyn, Meathead: The Science of Great Barbecue and Grilling

Meathead GoldwynLast year we got a terrific response to Meathead Goldwyn’s MEATHEAD: The Science of Great Barbecue and Grilling. Goldwyn is also the founder of AmazingRibs.com, the hugely popular grilling and barbecue website known for applying the latest scientific research to America’s favorite form of cooking.

Goldwyn first began his food and drink career as a soda jerk in his parents’ Sarasota restaurant where is father affectionately nicknamed him Meathead. In MEATHEAD, he reveals in full but accessible detail, the science behind the interaction of fire and food, with foolproof techniques, researched results on hardware, and 118 mouthwateringly, satisfying, and thoroughly tested recipes.

After consulting with scientists, Meathead shatters many of the myths that hang around barbecue lore, oftentimes standing in the way of perfection.

“Remember, almost anything you can cook indoors can be cooked outdoors, only better,” Meathead writes. “All it takes is the four P’s : practice, patience, persistence, and a knowledge of key cooking principles.”

In the Holiday spirit Meathead is back with us, and generously gave away a copy of MEATHEAD: The Science of Great Barbecue and Grilling.
