Coming April 2010! 25th Anniversary Edition of the KCBS Cookbook

March 2, 2010

Coming April 2010!  In celebration of its 25th anniversary, the world’s largest barbeque organization is sharing its secrets for good food, good company and good times. The Kansas City Barbeque Society Cookbook, 25th Anniversary Edition by Ardie A. Davis, Paul Kirk, and Carolyn Wells comes packed with more than 200 all-new recipes from the society’s top grillers.

The KCBS has done a lot of growing in 25 years. The original membership of three has expanded to 11,000, and the recipes in The Kansas City Barbeque Society Cookbook reflect the gender, ethnic, and geographic diversity of the KCBS. And although KCBS-sanctioned contests still feature the organization’s four basic food groups—chicken, pork shoulder, beef brisket, and pork ribs—readers will find everything from lip-smacking appetizers and sides to mouthwatering desserts inside. On top of that, there are loads of photos, tips from the pros, colorful stories, quips, quotes, and other “barbequephernalia.” Equal parts cookbook and scrapbook, it’s all enough to make anyone feel like a member of the KCBS.
