BBQ and Smoking Book Suggestions?

Like you, I have a nice selection of bbq and smoking books - Jeff Phillips, Meathead, Myron Mixon, Aaron Franklin, Steven Raichlen - just to name a few. I consider many of these to be staples for folks like us. But over the last year or two, many others have come on the market from Rodney Scott, Tuffy Stone, Big Mo Cason, Bludo, and many more.

Mamy of the new ones give chapter after chapter on the author's history. These are more biographies than bbq books and are not really what I buy a bbq book for.

For example, Rodney Scott's book is 65% biography, 25% on how to build a pit and cook a whole hog, and 10% recipes and techniques. This is totally useless to me. This is not the type of book that I am looking to spend my money on.

Which books do you consider essential reading and of the new ones, which would you recommend and why?

Peace.
