The Cookbook Library presents; She-Smoke: A Backyard Barbecue Book, by Julie Reinhardt

She-SmokeShe-Smoke: A Backyard Barbecue Book, by Julie Reinhardt, empowers women to take their place back at the fire. In She-Smoke, Reinhardt gives step-by-step instructions on a variety of barbecue topics, from buying local, sustainable meats, to building the perfect slow and low fire, and smoking a holiday barbecue feast. She includes a host of delicious recipes aimed to teach women technique, with more in-depth instruction than that of a conventional cookbook. Women will learn the elusive history of ‘cue, the difference between true barbecue and grilling, and all about the world of barbecue competition. Featuring interviews with other “smokin’” women and stories about Reinhardt’s family, She-Smoke brings women into the greater community of barbecue.

Julie Reinhardt, co-owner of Smokin’ Pete’s BBQ in Seattle, wrote her book She-Smoke: A Backyard Barbecue Book with the hope of bringing more women into the smoke ring. Now she gets to share her passion for barbecue with everyone. She’s appeared on CBS Better Mornings, Good Day Alabama, and was recently a guest on NPR Seattle’s KUOW with Steve Scher. She and her husband pitmaster Eric race between caterings in the park for the restaurant, to play dates in the park with their two children. Julie has worked with food most of her life and is a KCBS sanctioned barbecue judge. She loves to share recipes, technique, and hopefully a few laughs on her blog shesmoke.blogspot.com.

Julie is graciously sharing a fantastic recipe from her book, Cocoa Bliss Rub.  I am excited to add this to our pork loin this weekend.

  1. Ya know I’ve always pondered why in the devil the outdoor grill is a man’s domain? Is this an extension of the man-cave? Hey, maybe we’ve just done this to get them outta the kitchen!! Great post! xo Ally

  2. I’m all for equal rights, but um I still get to build the fire right? Of course, everyone should BBQ more and smoke more. But I don’t have to give up my BBQ master apron right?

We would love to hear from you!
