“Dadgum That’s Good!’…And Healthy!” is the perfect book for a well-balanced lifestyle.
I actually gave this book as a gift because I loved it just that much. I knew it would be the perfect fit for someone that loves to grill. The person I gifted it to actually loves it because he has to stay heart healthy. He felt there was plenty in the book that he would grill along with dishes that paired well. Personally, I will use my copy for just smoking recipes and when summer grilling rolls around this book will stay nicely snuggled into my beach bag.
