Video: How to Truss and Spit a Beef Tenderloin for the Rotisserie
Last year, I told everyone I was working on a cookbook. I’m almost there. Rotisserie Grilling the DadCooksDinner Way* will be released as a Kindle e-book as soon as I have it formatted, hopefully late spring.
*Yes, I know…the title needs work.
The recipes are done; the book is mostly new content, not duplicated from the blog. Right now I’m finishing up – editing, proofreading, and making sure I have all the pictures I need.
*We’ve been having two or more rotisserie meals a week for months now, so I can test recipes. I think Diane and the kids are going to string me up on the spit if the book isn’t done soon…
A big reason Rotisserie Grilling will be a Kindle e-book is so I can insert videos. Describing how to truss a roast with words is not easy; showing how to truss it in a video is simple. Last weekend was my video shoot – I filmed myself working on the recipes I was testing.
*Other reasons: It’s an appliance cookbook for a very small niche. I can’t imagine a publisher spending the money to publish it in full color, and I like color pictures. With an e-book, I can stuff it with all the pictures I want and still sell it cheap. Also, I keep most of the money it makes…assuming it makes any money at all. I just hope it earns enough to pay off the meat I bought for recipe testing.
To whet your appetite for Rotisserie Grilling: The Book, here is the beef tenderloin video from last weekend’s shoot. I fold my tenderloin over to double up the thickness, giving it more time to develop a crispy crust before it cooks past medium-rare. Enjoy!
