This is a book about using Smokers. It has the history of smokers and tons of facts! It is packed full of information for anyone looking to get started with smoking meats. I love that it has a section on how to choose your proteins. I find there are tons of great advice especially as a newbie when it comes to really choosing the right cuts of meat etc. I also like that it teaches you how to smoke seafood. We love to eat fish and salmon is my favorite so I am really excited to get a smoker and learn how to make incredible foods with this book.

Not sure what equipment you need to get started? no worries and this book breaks down the different smokers out on the market and also what tools you will need and even where to get your wood.

The recipes are not just for the advanced, there are tons for beginners and intermediate smokers. I love how the recipes are set up including which wood they recommend and breaking the sets down to make it super simple to follow even for a beginner cook. At the end of a recipe there is also a spot Pair It, which gives you ideas to pair your tasty meats with. They also include great and easy side dish recipes. Different veggie dishes and salads. Great rub and sauce recipes included that can be also used for other meals other than smoking.

I have handed this book over to my hubby as he is the BBQ man of the house and loves to learn how to make delicious meats. I hope to enjoy lots of these recipes over the summer.
