Review and Rating of Wicked Good Burgers: Fearless Recipes and Uncompromising Techniques for the Ultimate Patty

First off I don’t need to tell you that any book written by the amazing chefs of Andy Husbands, Chris Hear and Andrea Pyenson is going to be amazing because if you are a fan of great barbecue and grilling then you already know how amazing their recipes and techniques are. Like every barbecue and grilling cookbook review I am going to be rating the book on the following criteria: (1) Photography; (2) Quality and Quantity of the recipes and finally how easy are the recipes to execute. Wicked Good Burger Cookbook Cover



First, let’s break down the food photography. It was no surprise to me again to see that all the pictures were taken by the very very talented Ken Goodman. It must be hard being this talented because Ken really makes the pictures pop off the pages of the book and makes the food look incredible. Ken has an incredible eye of seeing what the photo is going to look like in a book. One of my favorite pictures in the book has to be the picture of the Hill Country Brisket Hamburger. The reason why this is my favorite picture because Ken does an amazing job of composing the whole picture from the background {which happens to be copies of Wicked Good Barbecue one of my other favorite books}, highlighting the hamburger in the middle and the nice wood plate which provides great contrast. Ken does a great job of making a hamburger look amazing.

Secondly, the quality and quantity of the recipes in Wicked Good Burgers makes this book standout. Andy, Chris and Andrea does a great job in not only providing the reader with some great hamburger recipes from “American Classics” such as a “Brat Burger” and a “Brisket Burger” and lastly a recipe for a “Diner-Style Steamed Cheeseburger.” Then the authors go beyond the American classics with recipes such as a recipe for a Salmon and Tuna burger, a juicy lamb burger the recipes are just amazing. Another aspect of the recipes that is worth highlighting is that the authors go beyond recipes for a hamburger and provide the reader with recipes for some great side dishes such as “Wicked Good Fries,” Duck Fat French Fries, and recipes for Onion Rings and one of my favorites to make BBQ Potato chips. In addition to recipes for fries the authors share some of their favorite dessert recipes such as a recipe for a classic Root Beer Float, and even an a “Pistachio-Gelato Burger,” recipe which immediately made me want some ice cream when I was grilling some of my own hamburgers.

Lastly, the ease of the recipes in Wicked Good Burgers. I think that you can have the best recipes the best food photography but if you cant or it is hard to execute the recipes within the book then the book in my mind not worth it, however in Wicked Good Burgers the recipes are easy to execute therefore the book has all the three main components. Even though the recipes look hard to execute, that couldn’t be far from the truth. All the recipes in Wicked Good Burgers are very easy to put together and provide great results.

It should not be surprising of how “wicked,” this hamburger cookbook titled Wicked Good Burgers is because of just the authors passion for creating some great food. The authors take you from providing some great uncompromising techniques from grinding your own meat and even placing the meat onto the grill and cooking it to perfection as well as some killer toppings, side dishes and more. From the amazing food photography to the killer hamburger recipes, Wicked Good Burgers is an instant classic and a must have for anyone who is looking for amazing hamburger recipes and more. So what are you waiting for? Purchase your copy right now.
