The key to great barbecue is layering flavors. Steven Raichlen tells you how to do it with recipes for sauces, rubs, and marinades. Get ready for burgers, ribs, and more. Plus, a CT restaurant serves a soft-shell crab BLT that gets raves, and Amy Dickinson of Wait. . .Wait Don’t Tell Me!® and the “Ask Amy” column describes her early life on a dairy farm and her mother’s cooking. Finally, we’re happily surprised by Pasqua Romeo & Juliet Bianco, a white wine that actually pairs with the spice and heat of our new favorite barbecue burger.
