Rick and Bubba’s Big Honkin’ Book of Grub

By Rick Burgess & Bill “Bubba” Bussey

Read the Back:
- Leviticus 3:16

Radio personalities Rick Burgess and Bill “Bubba” Bussey love their grub, and they love it well – and now they want to tell you everything they know about it!
In this bountiful buffet of all-things-vittles, Rick and Bubba of the syndicated Rick & Bubba Show – heard nationally on more than 60 radio stations – will offer you a veritable smorgasbord of tantalizing tidbits to help you get the most out of America’s favorite pastime – eating!

Features of Rick and Bubba’s Big Honkin’ Book of Grub include:

Rick and Bubba’s no-fail Weight Loss Tips

Palate-pleasing recipes to tickle your tummy

Rick and Bubba’s Tribute to the Casserole

“Da Rules” for eating with excellence and grace (including Rick and Bubba’s Never-to-Be-Broken Rules of the Church Potluck)

Rick and Bubba’s Favorite Places to Eat

The official list of interesting Food Fairs and Festivals

“Eating is an art…an event…an experience,” say Rick and Bubba. So grab your forks, y’all, and come on. There’s eatin’ to do! Let Rick and Bubba show you how!

What I Thought:
This book is VERY funny! I went into reading this book thinking that it was a recipe book with some funny stories sprinkled within, but it was exactly the opposite. Rick and Bubba talk about all aspects of food/eating and then sprinkle in some of their favorite recipes. This book is a great light read and will uplift anyone’s spirit! I really enjoyed the Top 10 lists that Rick and Bubba share with us throughout this book. Some topics include: Top Ten Reasons Why the Turkey Toss Should be an Olympic Event & Top Ten Reasons to Attend the Annual Spam Festival. The book definitely reads as though you are listening to a humorous morning radio show complete with jabs between your “hosts” Rick and Bubba. This would be a great gag gift with say a box of donuts or some other food that people indulge in.

I would’ve liked to see more recipes in this book, but the ones that are included are simple to make and sound DELICIOUS (translated as Un-healthy!). Rick and Bubba have several other books out there and after reading this one, I just might have to pick one up. My eyes are on the Rick and Bubba’s Guide to the Almost Nearly Perfect Marriage. Great fun!
