I have been cooking over fire for over 50 years, mostly using Weber grills and after market products, many of which I have reviewed here. The books by Jamie Purviance ( I believe that there are now nine) have been and are the basic "go to" resources when I need either a recipe or some grilling advice. I suspect that buying "another cook book" other than by Jamie would provoke a "domestic tsunami" but, as I write this, I see the SO eyeing the book, and I'd probably draw some ire if I didn't buy it.

So, gentle reader, why should you shell out some coin for this one?

Well, if your idea of outdoor cooking is burning burgers on Memorial Day and the 4th, my advice is: Don't! But if you are at all like me, and grill a lot, I urge you to get and read this book, and here are some reasons why.

1. IT'S A LEARNING TOOL. If you smoke on a regular basis, you can skip this paragraph. But if you don't, one good reason to get this book is to learn how. As Jamie notes, and I underscore, smoke is a seasoning, and as with most seasonings, "less is more". Too much salt, garlic or smoke can ruin a meal, while just the right amount can take good food into the stratosphere! Jamie is a good teacher in this book, and if you read and follow the advice he offers, you will start getting some serious "atta boys!" (or "atta girls!") when the food hits the table (hopefully plated).

2. THE RECIPES ARE SIMPLE. One of the constants in the Purviance/Weber library is that there is an emphasis on simplicity. Not at the expense of flavor, mind, but in ease of understanding, preparation and cooking. At my advanced age, I am simply not interested in spending three days preparing a meal, nomatter how good the finished product is.

3. DOING NEW THINGS WITH OLD FAVORITES.

Expand your outdoor cooking horizons and waistlines with Weber's "Smoke"! The latest cookbook from Jamie Purviance is the first (as far as I know) undertaking into the world of low and slow authentic BBQ. The book is helpful for those who want to transition from high heat grilling into low and slow smoky BBQ on a kettle, gas grill or smoker. To speed up this transition, the books composition is easy to follow and exciting to explore. An overabundance of vibrant photography and illustrations serves to help the reader soak up information like a sponge.

Even a BBQ enthusiast like me has found many useful tips, tricks and nuggets hidden between the lines. Moreover, the recipes are inspiring...traditional and non-traditional BBQ dishes that challenge beginners to experts. Also, the inclusion of Latin cuisine is my favorite theme about this book. I grew up with parents who cooked authentic Mexican cuisine and I have incorporated that into my BBQ for years. Jamie Purviance's experience in Latin cuisine brings a whole new level of flavor to the table...literally! If you haven't tried BBQ tamales, you're missing out...this book has the recipe!

Some hardcore pitmasters may be disappointed to find that this book is not like the "storyteller" BBQ books that have come out recently or that Jamie does not touch on long standing low and slow debates such as..."should the brisket go fat side up or down?" But for the casual backyard weekend warriors, the tutorial and recipes in this book will guide you to impress your family, friends and neighbors. Well done!

Weber's Smoke brings together decades of knowledge about smoke cooking and barbeque in a book that enables beginners through moderately-skilled backyard chefs to step up their games! I'm a professional BBQ cook with Velvet Smoke BBQ and Kansas City BBQ Society (KCBS) judge so I'm often asked for recipes and cooking tips. However, many of the recipes used out on the competition trail are long, laborious and technically difficult. Weber's Smoke balances the basics of grilling and smoking with professional tips that are easy to understand and perform on the grill you already have. There are a lot of smoking and barbeque books out there, but for one go-to book that delivers real results with proven recipes, this is the one! I also recommend Real Grilling, also from the Weber collection, for those interested in grilling techniques and even more awesome recipes. Good luck and good smoking!

Disappointed. Around 50 recipes for smoking foods on a charcoal grill. Around 20 for smoking on a gas grill. 15 for a Weber SMOKER, and that included making jerky, bacon, canadian bacon, pork belly and tofu. So for my use, 10 recipes remain that are ideally suited to the smoker. Not what I expected.

SMOKE is a book about barbecue that will get you up and out to your grill. The recipes are easy, the techniques clearly explained, and the photographs are devilishly contrived to make your mouth drool. Get this one.
