Outdoor Grilling And Barbecuing

There are lots of opinions about the best way to grill and barbecue; and there’s a confusing array of choices when it comes to equipment, techniques, sauces and rubs. Some say the secret is in careful preparation.  Others say its all in the way the food is cooked:  gas or wood, indirect or direct flame, slow-cooked or thrown on the grill. We talk with Vermont author and food columnist Marialisa Calta who created the recipes for "Al Roker’s Big Bad Book Of Barbecue" about how to make the most of your backyard cooking. And we hear from Chris Sargent, the Vermont
representative to the New England Barbecue Society. Listen
