Basic Grilling Book for Weber Kettle

Westminstress | Apr 17, 201401:43 PM     38

Hello, I have a Weber kettle that doesn't see much use, and this year one of my main cooking goals is to learn how to use it. I hate heating up the kitchen during the summer and this year I would like to be able to cook dinner on the grill often -- even on weeknights. I am looking for a very straightforward book, with easy but satisfying recipes, and lots of pictures, to help with this. I think either How to Grill by Raichlen or The Weber Way to Grill book might serve this purpose. Does anybody have any opinion as to which is better in terms of (1) clarity of grilling instructions; (2) simplicity of recipes; and (3) deliciousness of results?

(Oh, I have a pretty good-sized cookbook collection, and many of my existing books have recipes for the grill that I would love to try. With this purchase, I am not so much looking for grilling recipes, but for learning the technique of grilling, which I can then adapt to any recipes. Also, I have two young kids, so if the recipes involve too much chopping, prepping etc. I will not be able to execute them. The recipes HAVE to be simple. As a point of reference, I do have a Schlesinger and Willoughby book but I never use it because for the most part the recipes involve too much prep, though I did make a very good grilled whole chicken once, but that was one of the most basic recipes in the book.)
