THE BIG MARN’S BARBEQUE COOKBOOK

Inside Sport - - ONE ON ONE WITH... - BY DAR­RYL BROHMAN, NEWHOLLAND,$35

No of­fence to the Big Marn, but if we’re go­ing to buy a barbeque cookbook and ac­tu­ally use the recipes out of it, we want it to be writ­ten by this bloke – a man who looks like he knows his way in, around and through a frig­gin barbeque. For the unini­ti­ated, Dar­ryl is a pop­u­lar mem­ber of the rugby league Footy Show team. Apart from be­ing funny, he ac­tu­ally played rugby league back in the 1970s and ’80s for the Dog­gies and Pan­thers. But as we were about to say, there are too many barbeque cook­books pub­lished these days by skinny, hip­ster-bearded health-food pro­fes­sional types. The Big Marn’s at­tempt is fresh, funny (there’s footy sto­ries through­out) and his recipe de­part­ments have cool and clever footy-in­spired names: there’s the Im­mor­tals sec­tion, The Scrum Feed and On The Wings. They’re all self-ex­plana­tory. While we think of it, the only other bloke we’d buy a cookbook from is Pawnee Di­rec­tor of parks and recre­ation Ron Swanson. He once threw a tray­load of gourmet veg­gie burg­ers straight into the trash so that he nor any­one digest them.

GOODFOR: Peo­ple who love their meat.
