Sausages, bacon, ham, venison, turkey, ribs, cheeses, salmon… These are just some of the many amazing foods you can make with a smoker!
If you’re dreaming of delicious, freshly smoked food made in your backyard, then this is a great project for you – your smokehouse. Most commercially sold smokers are small and are only for hot-smoking – this limits the kind and amount of food you can make. So a great solution would be to make your own. You can make as much as you want or a family occasion requires.
Most books on smoking just give some elementary information and then are filled with recipes; this book is the reverse, scholarly information and theory as it applies to smoking meats and a few recipes that will get one started.
This cement block smokehouse is a great DIY project that will inspire you to experiment with making delicious food. It has a lot of room, so you can smoke huge amounts in a single batch. It also allows for cold smoking, which is entirely different from hot smoking.
