i Smoke and Spice: Cooking with Smoke, the Real Way to Barbecue (Jamison's)

Along with "Complete Meat" and "Louisiana Kitchen" this has been among my most referenced cookbook over the years. If you want to really get into barbecue this is close to a bible as it gets.

Cheers,
BD

I think Sublime Smoke, by the same person as Smoke and Spice, has a lot more good recipes and ideas. I have both of them. Sublime Smoke has a lot more PostIt notes than the other one.

BD, just out of interest, do you barbecue with a full-blown competition-style unit or do you apply the techniques to a smaller home unit, like the Weber? I admit to reading about your food but not paying attention to the method.

Agreed. Another winner!

Hi Glenys,

I use the Weber Smokey Mountain.

Weber Smokey Mountain (click on Charcoal Grills and the drop down list has a pointer)

There are other bullet smokers that would suffice just as well -- they mostly function the same. With one of these you can do anything that can be done in a professional smokehouse, the difference being convenience, control and most of all, capacity. Plus you're locked into either electricity or charcoal for the heat source as you would need a separate firebox to use wood.

But for the home the small footprint and lower price (~$200) makes the bullet smoker ideal.

Thanks BD! We use the Bradley at school,

but I'm looking for a new home version. If they techniques and info from this book can be applied, that's terrific!

The Bradley is a nice looking unit. Wow. As for the techniques in
i Smoke and Spice
being applicable, they are. In fact the directions are often given for both bullet smokers and firebox smokers when necessary.
