As you all know, I’m always on the lookout of a great cookbook. However, I don’t normally get to meet the author of the cookbooks that I use. However, I did get to meet John McLemore before I even tried out his awesome cookbook (and I got a signed copy). He’s one the nicest and funniest guys you’ll ever meet.
Dadgum Thats Good is one of those cookbooks that not only has great recipes, but it also tells a story. Before you dig into the food, you get to hear about how this cookbook came about, explains what cuts of meat you want to be getting, temperature your food should be, pantry essentials. Bill loves that there is several pages dedicated to BBQ sauce. There is a sauce for everyone in there. These recipes are for all sorts of cooking: smoking, grilling, drying, boiling, and steaming! I’m not kidding when there is something in here for everyone. You’ve got everything from Smoked Meatloaf to Lemonade Chicken.
If you want a cookbook that isn’t run of the mill, Dadgum Thats Good is the book for you! My husband and I love it, the food is awesome, and the author is even more awesome. What more could you ask for?
