For many, nothing is quite as mouthwatering as a glazed smoked ham or a side of perfectly smoked salmon.

Whatever the food or the type of smoker (electric or wooden), there's a detailed description that even beginners will easily follow. With useful troubleshooting tips, advice on herbs and spices, and over 30 recipes (including the author's legendary Swiss Steak and Smoked Crabmeat), this handy book transforms smoking into an art.

Equal parts butchering handbook, cookbook, and food history book, The Complete Book of Pork Butchering, Smoking, Curing, Sausage Making, and Cooking allows food lovers to take on culinary challenges, such as making their own sausage varieties or breaking down an entire pig, start to finish.

Even the folks who buy their meat in more manageable quantities can tackle new recipes and techniques in this book. The book offers recipes, photographs, and illustrations to turn average cooks into nose-to-tail butchering enthusiasts.
