When you purchase a meat smoker and try it out, you actually know nothing. In this book it explains the importance of curing the meat befor smoking it, the temp you need to get the meat to for safety reasons, and for what period of time the amount of meat needs to cure. It is definately a book to be purchased with a smoker for the beginner as well as the novice.
This book gives you all the sausage making and meat curing information you will ever need. Complete, highly detailed instructions and recipes. The only quibble I have is that he recommends a lot of ingredients that are appropriate for the commercial sausage maker, but completely unnecessary for the home sausage maker. Just leave out anything that isn't available in your groceery store and the recipes still turn out great.
this is the most imforative and detailed books i have ever enjoyed and would recommend it to anyone that is interested in learning to make sausage.
