|Smoking is a
classic method of cooking with fire, but how many home cooks can
confidently say they really know the basics of preparing great smoked
food? Overstuffed tomes full of exotic recipes for smoked food abound,
but where can the would-be smoker turn for simple, easy-to-access
information on the subject?
| In 25 Essentials:
Techniques for Smoking, barbecue expert Ardie A. Davis makes it
easy and fun to learn techniques such as smoke baking, smoke roasting,
rotisserie smoking, spray basting, brining, and mopping.
Davis, who cooks and competes
under the 'cue moniker Remus Powers, offers simple and delicious
recipes such as Braggin' Rights Brisket, Smoked Stuffed Chile Poppers,
Classic Barbecued Spareribs, and Alder-Smoked Salmon Fillet, each
accompanied by a mouthwatering color photo.
