Wood Pellet Grills and Smokers are getting more and more popular as people recognize how good food cooked in them are. Nancy Loseke, who has worked with the Barbecue King, Stephen Raichlen, for years, has taken smoking to a higher realm in making foods healthy in her cookbook, Healthy Wood Pellet Grill & Smoker Cookbook: 100 Low-Carb Wood-Infused Barbecue Recipes. This is not to say that they are so healthy that they don’t have appeal. Actually, the opposite. These recipes, while on the healthier side, are so appealing that it is difficult to decide what to make next. The “healthy” in the recipes doesn’t include tree-hugger ingredients like tofu, and the dishes are actually mouthwatering.

The first part of the cookbook deals with the “how-to” in setting up the wood pellet grill and/or smoker, and learning to use it, control the temperature, and other housekeeping items. This is well-written, easy-to-understand, and by the time cooks have followed her advice, they will have a perfect set-up to preparing some of the best smoked and grilled food on the planet.

The best part of the book, of course, is the variety of appetizing recipes. Loseke has included recipes with nuances from all over the world. There are some typical recipes, and dozens of unique recipes, such as Pig on a Stick, Tuscan Cheesesteaks, Thai-Style Swordfish Steaks with Peanut Sauce, and Naked Juicy Lucy Burgers. The book includes great side dishes, too; a favorite which will be served at backyard gatherings and potlucks this summer is a Mexican Corn Salad that is absolutely delish.

Anyone who has a smoker (even if it isn’t a wood pellet type, but electric or gas), will love the recipes in this excellent cookbook. There are nice photographs of many of the foods, but there could be a few more. This is a highly recommended cookbook that has something to please everyone.
