+1 I started myself with this book before there was this internet thingy, and the times and temps are WAY off. I ruined more meat as a result. Plus, they leave you with the idea that 220 is good, but 210 is better, and 200 or lower is THE way to go. C'mon Man!!!! Give me a ****ing break! It's been many years now, but I didnt bother selling the book, I literally threw it away. As Doc said above, LOTS of other good books out there now.

As I recall, I purchased 3 or 4 books originally. The only one thrown away was the one I used to start with; Smoke and Spice. Paul Kirks has lots of great starter recipes. I would highly suggest starting as simple and with as few ingredients as possible and working up to more complex flavors...
Hance - Lake Dogs Cooking Team - MiM/MBN/GBA CBJ and comp cook
Lake Sinclair, GA (strategically about an hour from darn near anywhere)
Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.
