Legendary barbecue pitmaster Mike Mills and daughter Amy Mills team up to deliver unto us a heavenly smoker’s cookbook revealing some of the best kept secret recipes in barbecue.  But more than that, peppered between the detailed recipes, Mike and Amy’s stories unveil the best of what small town America has to offer: the values of community, family, work, and faith.

Tamar Adler already wrote it, and her An Everlasting Meal: Cooking with Economy and Grace is far better than anything I dreamt up. An Everlasting Meal is less a cookbook than an invitation to find the beauty and simplicity in the seemingly mundane act of making a meal.
