A Man's Guide to Outdoor Cooking
If you say "Mayrose" here in St. Louis MO, most people over the age of 40 (like myself) immediately think of the classic local TV/radio jingle sung by stop motion animated butcher Marty Mayrose in his warm baritone voice, "I'm a meat man and a meat man knows, the finest meats, ma'am, are Mayrose" (see my vinyl advertising toy figure photo at the end of this post!) But before Marty came along, the St. Louis Independent Packing Co., which produced the Mayrose meat brand, published this great Vic Take illustrated BBQ masters guide in 1955, showing you how to do it all on the grill! Pretty much everything is covered, including sides and sauces-- and on top of that it's really just a super swell fun book too!
