Finally a book on just Smoking, one of the Best!,
This review is from: Backyard BBQ: The Art of Smokology (Paperback)
Since getting into the bbq world, I have purchased many books on this subject. I can honestly say that this book, since receiving it, is a gem! The whole book is all about smoking, not any stories about himself or grilling. It is truely a book about the art of smoking. He does a great job in breaking down the things to do before you get to the smoker, what happens during the process and how to change or improve your results, and what to do after the process.
I have even email the chef and received a respond to one of my questions and in a timely manner.
The book covers all the basic meats of smoking and then touches on the harder to do items, like expensive cuts of meats and the always hard to do seafood. His section on seafood brining and smoking is one of my favorite chapters.
If you are looking for a book that cuts through all the hype and stories about themselves and just focues on the Art, this is the book for you!! It is not a pretty book, but it is a great book for producing some awesome bbq!

Thanks for that great review. "The whole book is all about smoking, not any stories about himself or grilling" is EXACTLY what I wanted to find out. You made a sale with that sentence, so I figure Amazon owes you commission.
