Memorial Day Grilling with the Big Boy Barbecue Book


Happy Memorial Day! I don't know about you, but every Memorial Day weekend we spend quite a bit of time at the old grill. In honor of that tradition, I wanted to share this vintage cookbook that I found at Joan's house a few years ago. It was published in 1960, and the illustrations and verbiage are just so kitschy and fun. For example, the book is attributed to "the Barbecue Experts of the Tested Recipe Institute, Inc. at the Kitchen in the Clouds and with the Cooperation of Barbecue Experts of Big Boy Mfg. Co." The book is filled with recipes for meat-eaters and veggie-lovers, and they do look pretty yummy for the most part....perfect for a Memorial Day cookout. Enjoy a little peek inside!
