Vintage 1950s cookbook of grill recipes. Mid century barbecue cook book. The ABC of Barbecue by Peter Pauper Press published in 1957. A great retro gift for him.

"The ABC of Barbecue" Cookbook was one of a series of "The ABC of ..." cook books published by Peter Pauper Press of Mt. Vernon, New York in the 1950s, with "decorations by Ruth McCrea".

The book contains 61 page hardcover book contains cartoons every few pages alongside the recipes, such as the one in photo #4 above.

The grill recipes are very midcentury, such as "Chuck Roast", "Ham, Pineapple Garni", "Jiffy Picnic Supper", "Kansas Buttermilk Hot Cakes" and "Shaashlick"... and some that stand the test od time, like "Chicken Barbecue", "Corn on the Cob" and "Shish Kabob".

4.5" x 7.5" or 11.4 cm x 19.1 cm

Good vintage condition. There is some staining and discoloration on the cover and yellowing on some inside pages (see photos above). The binding is in tact and there are no tears, however the paper that is affixed to the hard cover is tearing a slight bit at the spine and worn on the corners.
