Rob Rainford was born to grill, and now he’s taking grilling to a whole new level!

In Born to Grill he brings his barbeque prowess to over 100 recipes and 20 complete menus from around the world– designed for hosting family and friends around your backyard barbeque.

For Rob, grilling is about entertaining; it’s about spending time together, cooking and eating outdoors. 

It’s also about pushing the boundaries of what you think you can do on the grill. In Born to Grill he shares his unique slant on grilling with 20 menus for you to mix and match, for both charcoal or gas grills. 

Born to Grill‘s recipes are international, influenced by Rob’s travels and experiences in different countries and cultures. There are plenty of great grill classics (with a Rainford twist) but he really pushes BBQ boundaries with some true grilling originals and expert techniques, like cold smoking. 

Born to Grill  takes you where no barbeque book has gone before, because Rob knows the grill can handle so much more than burgers and steaks. There’s still plenty of beef in here, but also lamb, chicken, fish, seafood, veal, duck, a huge range of vegetables, plenty of sides, and even salads! All cooked on the grill.
