Hot Coals – A Must Have User’s Guide for your Kamado

This is another of my TOP 3 Best Books for Kamado Chefs.

Yes Hot Coals has 40+ recipes but this is so much more than just a recipe book. It truly is a ‘User’s Manual’ for your Kamado Joe, Big Green Egg, and other kamado cookers. Hot Coals will teach you not only the basics of cooking on your kamado but how to master it. Some of my favorite tips include:

  1. best practices for cooking with cast iron
  2. how to avoid burning foods with sugar-laden sauces
  3. hot smoking vs slow cooking vs BBQ techniques
  4. Cave man cooking on the coals!

And this is my #1 book for cooking PIZZA and FISH on my kamado – the tips for that are worth it by themselves!
