I am looking at Myron Mixon's book, I thought I saw a book called "How to Start a Fire" or something like that mentioned here, but i cant find it
any recommendations on good reading material would be appreciated.
There are so many good books out there including the "Smoke and Spice" book you have. There will be many suggestions, all good reading books.
Your best bet is to decide which way you want to move forward, and follow that path.
Two more I would recommend would be;
"Meat Smoking and Smokehouse Design" by Stanley Marianski, this is probably too much information, but it does go into how and why without recipes. Also talks about curing meats (Hams, Corned Beef, Ect).
"Peace, Love, and BBQ" by Mike Mills. a book with stories, recipes, and information.
