Just a few years after I was married, I was given a small Brinkmann smoker-the one that looks like R2-D2-and I set out to learn how to use it. I was determined to make the most of that smoker no matter how many folks told me that it was cheap and hard to use. This sparked in me a love for the taste of smoked meats and a passion for the tools and techniques you need to produce them . . . I will equip you with the basic knowledge you need to produce succulent slow smoked food right in your very own backyard- food that will make you a legend in your neighbourhood and maybe even your town.
