Hungry for the great outdoors? Jamie and Bobby Deen know just what to make--whether it's in your own backyard, on the beach, at a potluck picnic, or tailgating before the big game. In The Deen Bros. Get Fired Up, Paula Deen's sons share a new batch of more than 125 mouthwatering recipes and entertaining ideas to make your outdoor dining a breeze. Jamie and Bobby have always preferred eating at a picnic table to a dining room. For the guys, backyard grilling means more good eats and less mess, tailgating is all about friendship and fun, and a beach picnic is a chance to splash around in the sun between courses. Now the brothers are sharing their outdoor cooking know-how to help you wow your friends and family with everything from grilled meats and barbecue to sandwiches, pizzas, and smoky sides. This irresistible cookbook also offers up delicious nibbles, tasty salads, and refreshing Seaside Sippers. Featuring ingredients easily found at your local supermarket, these effortless dishes are made even more special with the Deen brothers' signature Southern flare. Fire up the grill for some Beer Can Chicken with Sweet and Spicy Pickled Vidalia Onions, Big Fat Garlicky Rib Eye, and Down-Home Baby Back Ribs. Whip up Hot Buffalo Burgers with Blue Cheese or Nutty Pimiento Cheese Balls in the parking lot before the game. Spread out the picnic blanket for some Red-Hot Mayo and Tomato Sandwiches, NOLA-Style Dirty Rice Salad, or Southern Biscuit Cheese Straws. Hit the beach with Glazed Barbecue Shrimp, Grilled Crab Cake Sammies, or Fire-Roasted Clams and Mussels. Then wash it all down with such lip-lickin' concoctions as Pomegranate Punch, Cucumber Sangria, or a Savannah Sea Breeze. Jamie and Bobby also throw in something sweet with their Grilled Buttery Pound Cake and More and More S'mores. Packed with gorgeous photographs of the whole family at work (cooking ) and at play, The Deen Bros. Get Fired Up is a celebration of the beautiful landscapes, the wonderful people, and the great meals we can all share together.

Jamie and Bobby Deen grew up in Georgia--first in Albany and then in Savannah--and, like many Southerners, they have always considered cooking and food a big part of their lives. When their mother, Paula Deen, started a sandwich delivery business in 1989, the boys took charge of deliveries. As the business grew into The Lady restaurant, they continued to help. Then, in 1996, the trio opened The Lady & Sons Restaurant to resounding success. They haven't looked back since. They regularly appear on ABC's Good Morning America and had their own Food Network show, Road Tasted.
