"Hospitable omnivorous host, meet your summertime kitchen helper. Pulled sweet potatoes with chipotle barbecue sauce and a Southern-style skillet corn bread with maple butter sound good for all, right? The mother-daughter co-authors of this book devised recipes for year-round cooking, but we think that much of what hits a grill pan indoors can work outside on the Weber as well."
