We love barbecued meats, the ribs, the briskets, poultry and on and on. So I finally bought a smoker, an 18" propane fired Smoke Vault, and socked in a collection of wood chunks to flavor the meat with. Yesterday on my first try I used Meathead's (amazingribs.com) recipes to do a rack of baby backs and a whole chicken, and they were good. But I am looking for a book that will guide novices like me through the process and provide a variety of recipes. I see several on Amazon but wonder if our BBQing chowsers could recommend their favorite books on the subject. I confess I do like books that are well illustrated and recipes that are not complicated.
Thanks for the help.
