Last month we gave you a sneak peek into Chef Bryan Dooley’s brand new cookbook featuring stories and recipes from his award-winning BBQ joint, Bryan’s Black Mountain Barbecue in Cave Creek, AZ.

We think you’d really like to have this book, so we bought you one. We’re thoughtful that way. And, we also had the chef sign it!

Maybe you like ribs. Bryan’s BBQ ribs were featured in Grub Street’s Big-City Barbecue: 101 Places to Satisfy Your Urban ‘Cue Craving.

Or maybe you love brisket or pulled pork or who knows what you like? Tell us and we’ll put your name in the drawing for the signed copy of the book. If you entry is the random number winner, we’ll mail you a copy of Bryan’s book. It’ that simple.

    The BBQ beans at Joe’s Real BBQ in Gilbert. Several varieties of beans, pieces of all the meats they serve, in a sauce made from their BBQ sauce. Pure heaven.

    Beef brisket. A dish that has such simple seasoning that takes a tremendous amount of care. They say it takes a very special person to make a very simple thing.
