Written by Pitmaster, Chris Sussman,
AKA The BBQ Buddha

Hello there! My passion is to teach you how to grill and create amazing BBQ using your 5-senses. After years of teaching classes and creating recipes online, I have discovered important aspects of BBQ worth sharing with everyone. This book has 40+ recipes that distill my personal BBQ journey into the Four Fundamentals of Smoking that, when mastered, will teach you how to be the best pit master in your neighborhood. It comes from years of experience behind grills most common to backyard grillers: Weber Smokey Mountain, Traeger Timberline, and Big Green Egg. I have de-coupled the fundamentals from the grill so you can have the knowledge to cook in any environment. My hope is this book sparks your passion for BBQ and enables you to conquer anything you wish to grill or smoke for family, friends, and neighbors.

Each recipe is adapted for every grill listed above, written with specifications on how to apply the fundamental skills to each cooker and get perfect results no matter what device you use. With this one-of-a-kind beginner’s manual, aspiring grillers and smokers won’t simply be following recipes, but learning to truly master the art of smoking.
