Like many 'foodies' Karen has a love affair with cookbooks. In fact, she started a company that features BBQ cookbooks. “I have to reign myself in when it comes to buying cookbooks. We actually added a room onto our kitchen so we could build bookcases for all of them!” laughs Adler. She is President/Owner of Pig Out Publications, Inc. offering over 250 books on the subject of BBQ and grilling, Karen is author of 13 cookbooks with 9 titles on the subject of barbecue.
