She-Smoke: A Backyard Barbecue Book, by Julie Reinhardt, empowers women to take their place back at the fire. In She-Smoke, Reinhardt gives step-by-step instructions on a variety of barbecue topics, from buying local, sustainable meats, to building the perfect slow and low fire, and smoking a holiday barbecue feast. She includes a host of delicious recipes aimed to teach women technique, with more in-depth instruction than that of a conventional cookbook. Women will learn the elusive history of'cue, the difference between true barbecue and grilling, and all about the world of barbecue competition. Featuring interviews with other smokin'" women and stories about Reinhardt's family, She-Smoke brings women into the greater community of barbecue.
