Buxton Hall Barbecue’s Book of Smoke
Smoke savory meats and vegetables and cook the signature recipes from the kitchen of Buxton Hall Barbecue in Asheville, NC with Buxton Hall Barbecue’s Book of Smoke.
In Buxton Hall Barbecue’s Book of Smoke, believers in slow-smoked, old-fashioned barbecue will learn how to build and master their own pit, right at home. Start small with chicken or pit beef and work your way up to a whole hog. If you’re not yet ready for the pit or limited on space, Moss also teaches easy, economical ways to infuse wood-smoke into your food.
The recipes include all of the Buxton Hall favorites, including: Deep-fried Smoked Catfish, Smoky Pimento Cheese, Turnip Soup with Charred Onions, Slow-cooked Collards, Brussels Sprouts with Crispy Cracklin, Classic South Carolina-style Hash, Chicken Bog, Banana Pudding Pie, Grape Hull Pie, and S’mores with Homemade Marshmallows.
