Walter Jetton's LBJ Barbecue Cook Book

Here at the Cookbook Man website we’re all about cookbook reviews. After all, with a name like that you would expect tons of cookbook related material. Right?

We also realize that there are lots of great reviews written by some awesome reviewers each and every week. And, to be completely honest about it, it’s tough to review twenty or thirty cookbooks a week. So, from time to time we’ll bring you some of the other reviews that have been posted around the web.

There’s a couple of standouts in this edition. Check out Walter Jetton’s LBJ Barbecue Cook Book. This book was first published back in 1965. It’s really unique. It’s currently out of print, but, there’s a link to some used copies if you want to add it to your collection.

Also, we’ve posted a link to another review of Matt Armendariz’s recently released book, On A Stick!. This book is loaded with fun recipes for highly portable food.

Here are the links. We hope you enjoy them!
