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!
(Fess-up time — actually, we only bought one of you a copy (we’re thoughtful but we’re not rich). However, YOU might win the book. All you have to do is leave a comment telling us what your favorite BBQ dish is.)
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.
