Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.
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.

I've been smoking meat for quite some time, I'm on my 4th smoker, so I really was hoping for something more advanced. For the newcomer this book is great though. And for the price it is not a bad deal.
You just can't find a better "meat smoker" out there and a more supportive host.
Last summer I bought my first smoker (a basic Brinkmann Charcoal Smoker) and had some trouble getting the hang of how to use it and was overwhelmed by the number of recipes and other information you can find online. Tried a bunch of different things and was getting a little better each time but it was a slow process and I messed up a few different meals because I didn't really know what I was doing. Nothing I found online came close to what I learned from this book.
After reading through it, I went from a beginner to an experienced smoker almost overnight. Friends, family and neighbors all tell me that my ribs, pulled pork and brisket are as good or better than any restaurant they've been to. Not trying to brag...but I agree. Wouldn't be right to try and take any of the credit for myself though - it all goes to Jeff.
I love the recipes. I follow the directions and haven't been disappointed yet. 3-2-1 Ribs are by far my favorite. Last thing: Be sure to sign up for the emails - he sends out awesome recipes all the time that are a lot of fun to try out.
My family got me a smoker for Christmas and I've been looking for tips and tricks as I learn to use it. I found Jeff on his website, which was full of interesting an helpful information. So much so, that when I saw he had written a book, I decided to give it a try. I've been impressed with the recipes in the book. We decided to smoke up a bunch of chicken this last weekend and even as a newbie, I was able to produce a great spread by using this book.
You can look at the table of contents for an idea of what's covered. The first, informational chapters, are very much on point. They inform without being overly wordy and pretty much cover all the basics of using a smoker to safely produce a great meal. The chapters on different meats give advice on how to cook each one successfully. The sides chapter gave us a great recipe for "Fire Corn".
My family is excited to get more from me and I look forward to trying more of the recipes in the book and getting better at using the smoker I have. This is definitely a book that's more pointed to a newbie like me and I'm glad I found it.
