Great book on meat smoking
on June 27, 2006
This is an excellent book on meat smoking and building smokers. This is not a cookbook loaded with recipes, but rather a tutorial on the art of traditional smoking. Well presented explanation about the differences between smoking, barbecuing and grilling. Anyone considering building his own smoker should read this book first--not only does it explain various concepts such as draft, smoke delivery, pipe length, baffles, etc., it also contains plans for concrete block smokers, barrel smokers, masonry smokers, and many others (there are about 100 drawings and 50 photos in it that beautifully illustrate the concepts and plans presented).
