Looking for a good book on Smoking
Not sure if this post belongs here or Home Cooking, but it's a general topic. Anyway, I am interested in a good book for a newbie smoker (of the BBQ variety). I'm getting a Weber Smoky Mountain and I'm wondering if you 'hounds have any recommendations. I prefer books to YouTube videos. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
If you have not already be sure to do the WSM required reading at the Virtual Weber Bullet site:
"Smoke & Spice" was my first BBQ book and it is the best. Once you start getting comfortable with maintaining your temperatures "Paul Kirk's Championship Barbecue" is a great way to start moving up to the next level:
Best all round I've found, and I've got pretty much all of them. Covers grilling and bbqing extensively and in detail, plus lots and lots of solid recipes.
Also like Robb Walsh's Legends of Texas BBQ. More Texas style specific, but all Walsh's stuff reads well along with good recipes.
Thanks for all the suggestions. I'll be heading out to Borders this week to check out the Jamison book. I'm pretty good at grilling, but figured it was time to try my hand at smoking!
BTW, thanks CDouglas for the recommendation for the virtualweberbullet website--great resource!
