I read. A lot. And, not surprisingly, a lot about grilling, barbecuing, and cooking in general. I subscribe to over 75 bloggers’ RSS feeds for outdoor cooking alone, belong to several barbecue and grilling forums (where I spend a lot of time lurking, and less time commenting these days) and click on links daily from the thousands of folks I follow on Twitter and have “friended” on Facebook. On top of that, folks I don’t know will forward things to me now that I made it a bit easier to contact us. So now that I have a bit more time on my hands, I figured I’d start passing some of the more interesting (at least to me) things that I find along to the rest of you.
Today I was pointed at an interview with Steven Raichlen by Julia at TheBrowser.com. Each day in their FiveBooks feature they interview an expert – a scholar, artist, politician, journalist, or other eminent figure – who recommends and discusses the five best books in his or her field.
Their interview with master griller Steven Raichlen was quite informative and very interesting. He discusses why brown tastes better, and how our primal urge to play with fire helped us evolve, as well as points out five more books that sound like they are worth the read.
So jump on over and check out the interview when you get a few minutes. And while you’re there, browse around the site a bit and see if there is anything else that interests you.
I know that’s what I’m going to be doing later this morning…
