Amazon Reviews of Food Smoking a Practical Guide:
“Superb introduction to Food smoking. I recently purchased another book by a TV celebrity and was very disappointed. The book was very comprehensive but the expensive smoking equipment recommended wasn’t very helpful. This book is far better for the person that wants to try smoking food at home on a budget. It shows you how to smoke food in a cheap home-made cardboard box smoker.
It’s written in a informative way and very easy to understand. Turan even runs courses on smoking and curing if you want to gain some practical experience from an expert. I highly recommend this book if your interested in smoking your own food. “
