Melissa Cookston, the "winningest woman in barbecue," the
only female barbecue world champion, and author of Smokin'
in the Boys' Room, is bringing the heat with her second
cookbook. Smokin' Hot in the South explores how to use fire
in all its forms to craft more than 85 Southern-influenced
recipes enhanced with the cultural flavors of Mexico,
France, and Asia.
With the grill and smoker as her go-to tools, chef Melissa
Cookston—named "One of the most influential pitmasters in
America" by Fox News, and one of the "25 Super Women in
Business" by the Memphis Business Journal in 2015—shares her
all-new, modern interpretations of traditional Southern
ingredients and recipes. Melissa explains how the culinary
traditions of the South—long a bastion of slow-simmered
vegetables and deep-fried everything—have expanded in the
last decade to embrace Southwestern flavors, Asian spices,
and the French palate.
The nine chapters venture beyond the competition and
barbecue principles of her first book and focus on
instilling flavor with fire, using fresh herbs, and
diversifying seasoning components in recipes that reflect
the New South. She fire-roasts homegrown green tomatoes for
a spicy take on a traditional pizza sauce and uses a
barbecue smoker to add Southern nuance to porchetta.
Also includes recipes for Butterbean Pate, Asian Pork
Tenderloin with Watermelon Rind Pickles and Minted
Watermelon Salad, Deep South Burgers with Pimento Cheese and
Fried Green Tomatoes, Bacon-Wrapped Scallops with Blood
Orange-Jalapeno Glaze, Mini Sage Biscuits with Homemade Sage
Butter, and Caramelized Fig Clafoutis.
She also covers the tools, techniques, and ingredients
needed to be successful grilling or smoking at home. This
book will not leave you hungry!
