The pioneers of British barbecue bring you the ultimate guide to the grill.
'Everything you need for a BBQ blowout in your backyard'
Grillstock know a thing or two about low 'n' slow barbecue. They have been pioneers of the American barbecue scene in the UK since 2010 with their original BBQ and music festival, Grillstock, which sees top pit-masters compete from the world over, and their chain of smokehouses bringing truly authentic BBQ to cities across the UK.
Stacked with more than 100 recipes and revealing plenty of Grillstock secrets, Grillstock: The BBQ Book includes favourites from the Smokehouse menu, tips on mastering low 'n' slow style cooking, epic meaty feast ideas, and unique recipes from some of the world's best BBQ competition teams.
With chapters focused on the core meats of any great BBQ meal (Pork, Beef, Chicken and Ribs), a guide to the art of smoking meat, plus further chapters on burgers, fixin's (sides), rubs 'n' sauces and finally 'slurps', the book provides all you need to create everything from smokin' dinners for two to the ultimate BBQ feast.
Praise for Grillstock restaurants and events:
'I'm still amusedly flabbergasted by my majorly American weekend of downhome flavour from back home (then) near my London home (now) feasting. Grillstock London was BBQ blast and a low and slow experience I look forward savouring again'

'Not strictly the UK's only serious competition BBQ meet but, in my own hopelessly biased opinion, the best, and, for fans of American low-and-slow meat cooking, about as much fun as you can have with your clothes on. You could almost be in Kansas'
Chris Pople, Cheese and Biscuits
'Music festivals are good and all, but have you ever been listening to a band and thought, "wow...I wish I was eating a big pile of meat." That's where Grillstock comes in, a magical place where hotdog eating contests, the best in bbq food, craft beer and live music come together'
'The real spirit of barbecue'
When Jon Finch and Ben Merrington met they discovered a shared passion for American barbecue food & culture. They have traveled the US researching their craft and cooking with the best of the best when it comes to smoked meat. In 2010 they staged the UK's original BBQ and music festival, Grillstock, which celebrates authentic American BBQ culture. In 2012 they opened their first Grillstock Smokehouse and now have a fast growing restaurant business across the UK, whilst still holding annual Grillstock BBQ and music festivals.
