Renowned Weber cookbook author Jamie Purviance will be joining us for a Q&A on April 23-26 to discuss his latest and greatest book Weber's Ultimate Grilling: A Step-By-Step Guide To Barbecue Genius and to answer all of your questions about grilling and barbecuing!

Two years in the making, Jamie says this cookbook is the fulfillment of a HUGE dream. "Honestly, this is my best book yet. It's the most visually instructive book ever published on the topic --- packed to the margins with more than 750 pictures, leading you through every part of the recipes, with a BIG emphasis on techniques. This phenomenal amount of photography and an all-new recipe format make it really easy to learn techniques quickly and completely."

Over 100 all-new original Weber recipes, plus easy weeknight recipe variations and fun food science facts!

Jamie Purviance is a world-renowned grilling expert with a knack for teaching anyone how to do it better. After graduating from Stanford University, he taught English in California and then Indonesia. It was in Asia that he developed a full-blown obsession with outdoor cooking that put smoke in his veins and led him to chef school. He graduated from The Culinary Institute of America with high honors and launched a food career that has included multiple New York Times best-selling cookbooks and a James Beard Award nomination. This book is a culmination of 20 years as Weber’s master griller and teacher.
