August 2012 Cookbooks of the Month: Planet Barbecue and Raising the Salad Bar!

L.Nightshade | | Jul 18, 2012 05:12 PM

The Cookbooks of the Month for August 2012 will be:

Planet Barbecue by Steven Raichlen,
with the companion book,
Raising the Salad Bar by Catherine Walthers.

The race for the companion book was very close. Only a couple of votes today kept us from going into a runoff race.

On August 1st, I will be posting the individual threads for reporting your experiences cooking from Planet Barbecue and Raising the Salad Bar. In the meantime, you can use this announcement thread for general discussion about the books.

If you are curious about the selection process, and the accompanying discussion, the voting thread is here:

and the nomination thread is here:

If you've never participated in the Cookbook of the Month discussion, we hope you'll give us a try in August. We have a lot of fun, and we learn from each other's experiences. The basics of COTM, and the archive of past books, can be found here:
