Description


A delicious deep dive into the world of barbecue from the celebrated chefs behind the popular restaurants Pig Beach

Matt Abdoo and Shane McBride cut their teeth preparing three-star Italian and French cuisine, but in their spare time, what they really loved cooking (and eating) was barbecue. Eventually, they traded in their Michelin star kitchens for a smoker and opened their dream restaurant: a laid-back eatery that pays homage to the culinary traditions of American BBQ but isn’t afraid to experiment with worldly influences.

Now, you can master Matt and Shane’s smoky meats and championship-winning sauces at home. With more than 50 mouthwatering recipes, Pig Beach BBQ Cookbook includes everything from traditional favorites like buffalo wings and smoked beef brisket, to groundbreaking new dishes like Mojo-Marinated St. Louis Ribs and Secret Spice Pecan Candied Bacon.

An essential read for every at-home pitmaster, Pig Beach BBQ Cookbook is also a definitive barbecue tour of the United States. By sharing tricks of the trade from experts in every region, it explains once and for all how North Carolina ’cue differs from Texas ’cue, and teaches you how to recreate those distinct and delicious flavors no matter where you live.

About the Author


Matt Abdoo was the Chef de Cuisine of Del Posto and during his tenure, the restaurant received a coveted four-star review from the New York Times, and the Relais & Chateaux distinction. Prior to opening his own restaurants, Matt first earned his BBQ chops during his time working on America’s highly competitive barbecue circuit with team Salty Rinse. The team received 2nd place medal for Whole Hog in 2015 and 1st Place for Best Sauce (Mustard) at the annual Memphis in May World Championship. Today, Matt is a frequent guest chef on The Today Show and has appeared on many national cooking shows as well as DirecTV’s Fantasty Zone.
 

Shane McBride is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and one of New York’s most accomplished chefs. He began his career in the city with esteemed chef Charlie Palmer at Aureole. He then went on to work with Chef Christian Delouvier at the world-renowned Lespinasse. He subsequently partnered with Jean-Philippe Leloup to open his own star-studded restaurant, Oceo. Shane went on to be the executive chef at Tom Colicchio’s Craftsteak for many years, followed by a long tenure as executive chef at the famed Soho brasserie, Balthazar. His passion for barbecue was practiced as a hobby until he left the world of haute cuisine to focus entirely on operating and expanding the Pig Beach empire.

How To Read More

If you love reading, but for some reason you read less and less, know that everything is fine. It happens.
Our lives today have so many things that distract us - how can we not put books away when all these movies, TV shows, YouTube videos, social networks and endless surfing in online stores are around ...
Yes, it's really hard to resist, but you certainly can!

In this article, we want to share with you some tips to read more often and more successfully.
These are some notes and some practices that we have collected for our SUNDOG BOOKS readers club.
And maybe it will bring more books into your life!

Why do we want/need to read more?

To start reading more, you have to understand why you need it.
And you will be surprised, but your goals can be quite varied:

- for work
If you read a lot on duty, then you definitely need to speed up the process. The logic here is simple: read faster → work faster → more time for books for yourself.

- for education
you need this for your educational career or sometimes you just want to read to learn. And, with all the new alternative ways to gain knowledge (podcasts, online courses and videos), the book still does an excellent job of this task too.

- for self-development
all exercises for increasing speed, one way or another, improve cognition and memory.

- for fun
because good books always = fun!

Book lovers have an additional special goal for reading more often. If you love literature, you will understand what we mean: you want to catch everything - to follow modern literature, and not forget about the classics, look into non-fiction and children's publications. And there’s so much you want to reread! The goals are ambitious, but attainable if you read a lot.

 

And so - How to read more:
We will tell you about the methods that we use ourselves. Perhaps some will suit you as well.

 

15 minutes a day

You've probably already heard this rule: if you want to start a healthy habit, devote 15 minutes a day to it. Once upon a time, we all read irregularly, in jumps and starts. Sometimes we cannot open a book we have begun weeks ago. Therefore, you should decide to create a rule: devote at least 15 minutes a day to reading. Try reading before bed, or maybe during lunchtime, or even when you are having your morning coffee.

You will see progress immediately. You will notice that almost always your 15 minutes will grow into half an hour or more. But the most remarkable thing is that in three weeks your hands themselves will be looking for a book.

 

50 First Pages
This method advises - If the book hasn't hooked you from the first 50 pages, put it aside! Life is too short to read uninteresting books.

It is necessary to change the approach to books. At first it will be hard for you to stop and put the book down. Even if we put the book away, it will seem to reproach us from the shelf, mocking us as quitters. But in the end we should come to one simple thought: if it doesn’t hook your attention, you should not force yourself to read it.

***Fifty pages is not a bad test. Not the most objective, but definitely effective. It helps to determine whether it interests you or not, and whether to spend time on things that do not excite.

 

Reader's Diary

This should be used to improve the quality of reading - to make it more conscious. For starters, it can be a simple notebook with headings:

  • Author
  • Year of publication
  • Main characters
  • Scene
  • Plot
  • Theme
  • Quotes

And, yes, a reader's diary is not a thing about quantity, but about quality. But, it can also motivate. When you open your diary and start looking at quotes (especially quotes), you immediately really want to read.

 

Maybe a Book Bet?
Several people can participate. Members of the betting group can come from friends, family, and also your colleagues. And of course you can set your own rules for participation, but we'll give you a simple example:

Everyone in the group should read and review a book over the course of a month with weekly updates. Anyone who does not finish a review buys the book for all other participants for the next month.

 

Speed Reading

Another effective way to increase the amount you read is speed reading. The logic here is simple - the faster you read, the more books you can enjoy.

*There are many online courses on speed reading, and you can also study on your own using instructional books. But, it is worth noting that this is a serious learning process that will require some effort on your part.

 

Outcome

Reading every day is quite attainable, the main thing is to try to make it a habit.
Sometimes, instead of heading for Facebook, try opening a book and soon you won’t even remember why you needed to wander around social media.
And also - don't forget about audiobooks. They are a cool way to take the load off your eyes sometimes and just immerse yourself in the story. Some books are really strong in voice acting.
