Great news fellow barbecue fanatics, we’ve recently secured a publishing deal with Quadrille, a major, international publisher. We’ve completed the first draft already and will be finalising the photoshoots and last edits soon. We’re looking at a release in May 2016.
In our book, we’ll show you how we built our trailer smoker, tips on converting any grill into a home smoker, take you though our road trip where we went coast-to-coast and, of course, tons of recipes to try at home. We hope you’ll enjoy this book, we’ll be releasing sneak previews and tasters from the book early next year. We’ll keep you posted as to when and where you can buy a copy.
Here’s what our press office had to say about it:
Hot out the smoker, Hang Fire Smokehouse announce cook book deal
They have been crowned ‘Best Street Food’ by the BBC, were the first to bring slow and low BBQ to Wales, launched Wales’ first craft soda, fed international celebrities and served thousands of plates of American style barbecue at events up and down the country, but things just got bigger for Hang Fire Smokehouse, as they announce a brand new cook book for 2016.
The book will tell the story of their journey across America, including pictures and tales of their adventures, how do build your own smoker, detailed knowledge about grilling and smoking and will contain over 100 the recipes. The book is due for release in spring of next year.
Shauna Guinn, of Hang Fire said: “We were approached by publishers, Quadrille back in May following our win at the BBCR4 Food Awards and have been working on the book ever since. We are so pleased to finally be able to share our news – it’s been hard to keep it quiet!”
“The book is going to be jammed pack with everything you need to know about smoking at home. We can’t wait to share what we’ve learnt with everyone.”
The announcement was made over the weekend during their sell out ‘Alchemy of BBQ’ Masterclass at Abergavenny Food Festival. Tickets for their masterclass were the first to go and sold out in just 24hrs.
Partner, Samantha Evans added: “The food festival seemed like the perfect place to make the announcement. We delivered our masterclass to an audience made up of people who were really keen to dive into the world of slow and low and folks that have supported us from the beginning. It seemed right for those to be the first people to know.”
Sarah Lavelle, the publisher from Quadrille working with the girls, said: “We were fascinated by Sam and Shauna’s American adventure. They are infectiously passionate about what they do and hugely knowledgeable about their craft, so we are delighted to help them pass on their stories and recipes to fans, old and soon to be new.”
