First off I truly did not hate this book, for I bought it for the canning recipes and procedures, but after reading book many times, I was shocked and amazed that someone would actually put the other items in this book into print.
Let me explain,,,,, Curing, Brining and Smoking of meat is an art, like making cheese, wine, or hundreds of other things that we as a people have learned and mastered, but this book and the writers of it give people enough information to basically poison themselves with!!!
Secondly, most there info is found on the "web", or they use "I would" not "I have", or I have not done or so on and so on, and on page 40 David using pine evergreen, soft wood for smoking, WHAT the heck who would even consider this, then he adds "I haven't smoked that much meat" and "most hardwoods are okay". Seriously this book worries me alot. I have been smoking, curing meat for 40 plus years, and these fine folks should not be writing books about stuff they know little or nothing about, or as my dad would say "Know something about everything, but masters of nothing"
Good Folks, this book is screwed up on so many levels, I am amazed someone would even publish it, the double speak and triple speak is down right amazing. Especially the part of the book on Goats and Sheep, really, Susan.
Great Book on canning (period), the rest of this book is trash and Amazon should pull it before some nice person ends up in the E.R. from the CRAP in the book.
Heck I could even publish a book from stuff I found on the "net" cause we all know the internet doesn't lie...................
Granted that most English professors don't can bear meat, these authors would do well to pay an experienced editor before they release book two. I found ten typos in the first seventy pages and two clear misspellings. The style is annoyingly inconsistent and slips from folksy to formal and back constantly. I think that the number of places where the text reads, "I've heard of this but I've never tried it." belongs in an addendum at the end of the book titled, "Rumors worth researching" or "Currently being researched: see book two". I think this lack of editing gives an unjustified feel of, "I will just dash this off" to a piece of work that obviously represents a lot of work and a lifetime of personal experience. It deserves to make a better impression. I like the book, I will give it a five for content, but it could use a cleaned-up behind the ears.
