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.

I plan on curing and smoking meat as a means to preserve it in other ways from freezing it. So far this is an excellent book.

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.

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.

As the title suggests, Monte Burch's book is a joyful introduction to the art of smoking and salt curing. Likely to inspire hobbyists, this book is idea for those who catch wild game or are interested in saving money at the grocery store.
