Celebrating the wide array of grilling and smoking, THANK YOU FOR SMOKING shows home cooks how easy it is to rig a gas or charcoal grill or use a backyard smoker to infuse everything you love to eat. Whether you're making veggies, greens, meat, or fish, this broad array of recipes is perfect for weeknight cooking or long weekend grilling. And because firing up dinner is best enjoyed with an adult beverage, this complete guide also helps you set up your bar for modern smoke-kissed cocktails.


Paula Drisbowe writes about the endless adventure of food and travel, from vanilla plantations in French Polynesia, single malt distilleries in Scotland, olive groves in Spain, and salmon boats in Alaska. Her work has appeared in the NEW YORK TIMES, BON APPÉTIT, COASTAL LIVING, FOOD & WINE, among other national publications. Disbrowe has written or co-written six cookbooks, including Food52's ANY NIGHT GRILLING; REAL CAJUN WITH DONALD LINK, a James Beard Award winner for Best American Cookbook; and DOWN SOUTH WITH DONALD LINK, an IACP Award winner for Best American Cookbook. She lives in Austin, Texas.
