There are a coupla decent ones out...Myron Mixons and Steve Reichlin (sp) and I believe Paul Kirk has one as well. I usually go to the Library and get some, then copy what I want out of them. They sometimes have some old, obscure ones from years back on smoking to preserve things.

I recently got one by Paul Kirk called Paul Kirk's Championship Barbecue. It has 575 recipes, but more than that, It has a lot of how to, not only for getting into competition cooking, but basic how to also. UPC 9781558322424 ISBN 9781558322424, I think. :)

Good luck,
Jason

I'm with Al.  I have read every book I could get my hands on.  SMF is by far the most helpful and comprehensive resource I have found.  Thanks to all the SMF members who have guided and inspired me!

Good luck and good smoking!

Posting problems again.  I'm X3 with what Al says.  Also, get over to roll call and get signed up for the free tutorial and the starting of all the links to a lot of information.
