  • PROJECT FIRE

    Where there’s smoke there’s fire! And where there’s fire, there’s Steven Raichlen. Following the breakout success of Project Smoke, the New York Times best-seller that brought Raichlen’s Barbecue! Bible series to a new generation, comes Project Fire: a stunning, full-color celebration of the best of contemporary grilling from America’s master of live-fire cooking.

    Drawing on a combination of classic and boldly contemporary techniques, Raichlen presents 100 inspired recipes that capture the full range of what grillers want to cook today. Consider your basic steak. Raichlen starts with the iconic: a T-bone grilled over direct heat, smartly tattooed with grill marks and lavished (the way the pros do it) with sizzling beef fat. Then he teaches a technique new to most of us: reverse-searing. This approach allows you to grill a monster steak, such as a beef tomahawk, to perfection while also imparting a haunting smoky flavor. Of course, there’s a Caveman Sirloin: meat seared right on the coals, as dramatic as grilling gets. Plus, here’s how to blow-torch a veal chop, and how to spit-roast whole cauliflower on a rotisserie. Learn to grill mussels in hay, squash on a salt slab, and salmon steaks on a shovel over a campfire.

    From breakfast (Bacon and Egg Quesadilla) to cocktails (Grilled Sangria), from veggies (Caveman Cabbage and Smoke-Roasted Carrots) to dessert (Grilled “Piña Colada” and Cedar-Planked Pears with Amaretti and Mascarpone), Project Fire offers a radically righteous new take on live-fire cooking from the man who reinvented modern American grilling.

  • RAILROADS FOR MICHIGAN

    In this thoroughly researched history, Graydon Meints tells the fascinating story of the railroad's arrival and development in Michigan. An engaging and accessible text, Railroads for Michigan describes the long-awaited and often-troubled advent of the railroad in the state, the building of which shifted from private to public efforts and back again, amid tumultuous social, business and political developments. The railroad would come to play a role in almost every critical event in Michigan's history, including the Civil War, the Granger Movement, and the Gilded Age, before beginning to wane following the arrival of the automobile, the Interstate Commerce Commission, World War I and the Great Depression. A brief growth spurt during World War II was short-lived, and it was followed by the collapse of several major railroads and the formation of Amtrak and Conrail. Looking ahead to the future of the railroad in the Great Lakes region, Meints assesses the strengths and shortcomings of this revolutionary invention. With careful attention to the personal impact of the railroad, Meints recognizes in brief biographies the many men and women responsible for the development and operation of Michigan railroads, as well as the triumphs, tragedies and spaces that shaped their lives and work.
