hey there everybody i dont know if im in the right section to wright about this but i was wondering if anybody knows any good cook books for smoking? Just got my first smoker on saturday smoked a chicken last night turned out really well! The only problem was that the skin was thick and chewy but hey maybe ill do better next time! Also the smoker i got was a brinkmann red electric smoker. Anyways if anybody knows a good cook book for smoking please let me know going to smoke alot this summer! have a great day!
there are all kinds of great smoking and BBQ cook books out there.

Jeff that runs this forum had a very good one I highly recommend and Myron Mixon also have several

his newest Every  Day BBQ is awesome 
Hey Bubba, I also purchased Jeff's book and it is quite good. Have not tried any of the recipes yet, but it has al meats; Beef, Pork, Fish, and other cool stuff...enough for a newbie like me to play around with all summer!
Good to see you here, Bubba. Good luck with your smoking endeavors!

The comments above have got you started in the right direction in your selection. Amazon also has a whole bunch listed in their BBQ/Smoking cookbook section. Be sure to look in some of the BBQ books because they will also have some great recipes. Also, go to some of the on-line cooking sites for ideas.

Hope to see your results here soon.
Bubba one of my favorite books is smoke & spice. It is wonderful in terms of recipes and how too. Good luck
