BBQ Books By Your Favorite Pitmasters and BBQ Joints - The List

Below is a detailed(and continually growing) list of books put out by BBQ joints owners and pitmasters across the United States.

Before I get to the BIG list, I do have to start out with two books by the iconic photographer Wyatt McSpadden that I feel all fans of barbecue, especially Texas barbecue, should own. The photography is so gorgeous and truly embodies the essence of what BBQ is.

Texas BBQ, Small Town to Downtown by Wyatt McSpadden & Daniel Vaughn with Foreword by Aaron Franklin
