Barbecue is a serious business ... The Hang Fire Cookbook

Anyone who thought barbecue was about big, bearded blokes toiling over hot coals, think again: the Hang Fire girls are the real experts.

In 2012 Sam Evans and Shauna Guinn ditched their jobs and embarked on a six-month road trip around the best barbecue joints in the southern United States. From Texas to Tallahassee, they learned the insider secrets of what makes barbecue great, were captivated by the thrill of smoke and fire, and back home in Cardiff they set out their meat manifesto in the form of the Hang Fire Smokehouse.

The Hang Fire Cookbook reveals how they make their delicious recipes and the secrets behind the perfect smoke and BBQ.

Sam and Shauna explain the basics of getting started with a home smoker and different types of wood, and what rubs, cures and brines work best with certain types of meat.

Hang Fire’s approach is simple: get the best ingredients, cook them low ’n’ slow, and tuck in.
