2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By A Microbiologist on September 13, 2010
Format: Plastic Comb
The part about drying food was good and well balanced. The pickling section is only about pickling fish. Not a cucumber in sight. The smoking section has good background, but 90% of the recipes are for smoked fish. There are four of five pages devoted to non-fish items (birds, red meat, cheese, eggs, etc.) The jerkey section was good, and had many ways of making strip jerkey.

If you're buying this for the drying or jerkey sections, it's a good book. If you're buying this for the pickling section and hope to make vegetable pickles, look elsewhere. If you're buying this to smoke anything other than fish, there are better books out there, like Meat Smoking and Smokehouse Design by Stanley Marianski. If you're really into fish - dried, pickled, or smoked, this book is perfect.
