Get some barbecue tips from a guy who knows

| No Comments


Pit master (or, as he likes to say, barbecue life coach) Gary Wiviott -- whose barbecue almost did in Sun-Times reporter Dave Hoekstra, through no fault of Wiviott's own -- will sign copies of his new book, "Low & Slow: Master the Art of Barbecue in 5 Easy Lessons" this weekend at the Book Stall in Winnetka and the Barnes and Noble in Oakbrook (details here).

The book, co-written by Colleen Rush (picture above), is a gem as is Wiviott, a founder of the LTHForum culinary chat site. We finally met Wiviott face-to-face a few weeks ago (it is entirely possible and all too common in this line of work to correspond with someone for a good amount of time without ever actually meeting them).

Anyway, we're glad we did. He's a bear of a guy, as the photo suggests. This being his first book -- and his first book signing -- he admits he's a little nervous. So go meet the guy. You'll probably pick up some good grilling tips. To work past the nerves, he'll just be picturing you all naked.
