A very disappointing book. The descriptions are to vague and are of little use to anyone other then someone with absolutely no knowledge what so ever of this subject. I got more information surfing the net for 45 minutes then this whole book has cover to cover. What good is a book that feels the need to include a recipe for a ham and cheese sandwich? If you are looking for information on smoking and curing meats I highly suggest you look into one of the other books on this subject. This book is not the money.

This is a great cookbook for the serious hunter or just anyone who loves to smoke or cure foods. The book is divided into 2 sections. The first part explains salted, cured, and dry cured foods and how to make your own brined or corned meats.The second section explains how to smoke fish or meats, and gives instructions for building a smokehouse, the best types of wood to use and many excellent recipes for all types of meats, and fish. Make your own bacon or jerky. Great gift book for the outdoorsman!
