12 Bones barbecue cookbook launch party set for Sunday in Asheville


A launch party for a new cookbook tied to one of Asheville’s most popular restaurants is set to go down from 2-4 p.m. on Sunday at the 12 Bones location on Riverside Drive. The new book is titled 12 Bones Smokehouse: A Mountain BBQ Cookbook. It is written by Asheville Citizen-Times reporter and food writer Mackensy Lunsford, as well as restaurant owners Bryan King and Angela King, as well as Chef Shane Heavner.

The book includes recipes for cooks to try to replicate 12 Bones in their own kitchens.

12 Bones skyrocketed to fame after winning a Good Morning America national competition for one of its recipes. Then, in 2008, then Sen. Barack Obama stopped in to dine as he was campaigning for election. Then Obama came back. And then he talked about his love of 12 Bones.

From the 12 Bones book blurb on Amazon.com:

When 12 Bones Smokehouse opened in Asheville, North Carolina, many doubted that it would succeed. From a squat building in a flood plain, the owners were serving up creative barbecue that wasn’t 100-percent true to any single region. Yet a decade later, 12 Bones is a local institution that rivals the Biltmore Estate in popularity. (In fact, it’s 12 Bones alone that has been on President Obama’s itinerary all three times he’s passed through Asheville.)

The 12 Bones Smokehouse book is true to the spirit of the place. Everything is made from scratch–and cornbread is not optional. Inside you’ll find all the classics: from the famous ribs to smoky pork, turkey, and chicken. And just like the restaurant, the book is uniquely vegetarian-friendly by barbecue standards. From tangy Pickled Okra Salad to savory Jalapeno Cheese Grits, everyone will find something to love. Addictive desserts and flavor-packed rubs and sauces–including the famous Blueberry-Chipotle Barbecue Sauce–are all here, too. So if you can’t make it to 12 Bones this week, now you have the next best thing.

Here’s the 12 Bones book launch party info on FB.
