Sunset Barbecue Cook Book, 1950, 1957: This Barbecue Cook Book, written by the editorial staffs of Sunset Books and Sunset Magazine, is, as it says in the forward, “the lineal descendant of the first book ever published on home barbecuing–the Sunset Barbecue Book of 1938.” A large paperback book (never published in hardback) it begins with teaching the reader how to shop for the best barbecue meats. Then, it goes through methods for cooking outdoors: broiling, roasting on a spit, skewer cooking, smoke cooking, and firepit cooking. It includes, of course, recipes to use with each method. There’s also a chapter with barbecue accompaniments: casseroles, salads, breads, relishes and side dishes, and savory butters.
