PROJECT SMOKE: Seven Steps to Smoked Food Nirvana

PROJECT SMOKE                             STEVEN RAICHLEN

From America’s “master griller” (Esquire), a step-by-step guide to cold-smoking, hot-smoking, and smoke-roasting, and a collection of 100 innovative recipes for smoking every kind of food, from starters to desserts.

Smoke is the soul of barbecue, the alchemy that happens when burning wood infuses its magical flavors into food. Project Smoketells you how to make the alchemy happen, with Raichlen’s seven steps to smoking nirvana; an in-depth description of the various smokers; the essential brines, rubs, marinades, and barbecue sauces; and a complete guide to fuel, including how each type of wood subtly seasons a dish. Then the recipes for 100 enticing, succulent, boldly-flavored smoked dishes, including Bacon-Crab Poppers, Cherry-Glazed Baby Back Ribs, Slam-Dunk Brisket, Jamaican Jerk Chicken—even Smoked Chocolate Bread Pudding.    

Illustrated throughout with full-color photographs, it’s a book that inspires hunger at every glance, and satisfies with every recipe tried.

This was a good cook book, going over different types of smokers, wood, or charcoal, and then temperatures to cook the different types of meat for the smoke flavor. He also goes over what happens when it is to hot and how it destroys the flavor. He has a guide for each meat group on the temps that you are looking for to know when the food is done. He also gives you recipes on many different items you can make using the smoker. Some I would not have thought of like making bread, or dessert. The pictures are excellent and he gives easy to follow directions on the recipes he gives in the book. I also thought on all the different types of smokers was very useful. Overall a good book. I got this book from netgalley. I gave it 5 stars. Follow us at
