5.0 out of 5 stars So thorough, it should be called "Encyclopedia of Smoking and Salt Curing" Sept. 18 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
The Joy of Smoking and Salt Curing is a pure joy to read and learn from! We've been considering purchasing or building a smoker and after reading this book, I'm convinced to accelerate this decision.

Chock full of advice, recipes, step-by-step illustrated instructions and a complete review of smoking and salt curing options and tools, this is an intense and benficial guide.

Overall, a must-read for anyone interested in smoking or salt curing meats, fish, or wild game. I'm totally impressed with the design and content of this book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick and Easy Feb. 9 2013
By Piah Chuck - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This introduction to smoking and curing is full of photos and some great basic information for the beginner. If you are interested in making your own bacon (super easy) or smoking a turkey (very tasty) this is a good place for you to get started.

It is not an in-depth study of smoking and curing, to be sure. Other books go deeper into the chemistry, processes, and different smoking/curing approaches. But they are aimed at serious hobbyists or people considering smoked/cured meats as a business venture. For the guy or gal that wants to step up the flavor of food they make, not food they buy, this is a great little intro to the equipment and procedures used by most home smokers.

I have both the hard copy and the kindle versions. Either works quite nicely and with Amazon's cloud reader, the less expensive Kindle version can work quite well if you don't mind reading it on your computer. I'll be using some of the recipes mentioned in the book.

It is not the one and only book you will want on the subject, but it is a fine starter.

2.0 out of 5 stars pretty bogus May 24 2014
By Sir Mitchery Glenneford Rothell - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
To be sure, there are a number of recipes and some very important facts, but it didn't fit the bill for me. The author is so into pre-packaged ingredients and commercially advertised recipes, at times the book might be confused with a long brochure for Morton Salt or something. This book has the basics, and that's about that. Bummer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book Sept. 12 2013
By Allen B. - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great book, it covers all of the important aspects of curing and smoking that you need to know for home use without a lot of boring technical details that would only be important for commercial use, It's written in plain simple to understand English and is very easy to follow, it also has a lot of recipe's and pictures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smoking and Salt Curing Jan. 19 2014
By Heather - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A handy book to have for people living in the country or for fisher people to smoke or cure their catch, please remember that the meat still needs to be cooked after you have salted or smoked it. And the small is a nice way to tease the neighbours. A great book and I highly recommend you get it while it's still in print.
