All the cooking times and temperatures are based on charcoal heat and not electric. I have an electric masterbuilt smoker and was looking for a cookbook for electrics. Book states it has 100 electric smoker recipes, did not find any. Very disappointed.
Why are all the recipe's heat source CHARCOL? I thought this was a book for Masterbuilt ELECTRIC smokers ! Is that not a little misleading?
Smokin' Bob Jensen has smoked too much! If English is your first language, you will not miss the terrible sentence structure, confusing directions, and the ridiculous typos. . For starters, there is a disclaimer on the first page. I can see why, since, "The smoker can (?) be heavy. Be very careful not to drop it on your damn foot." The directions for setting the time-to-cook repeatedly refer to temperature, instead of hours and minutes. I will quote just one sentence:"Be sure to cook the past first" (Pg 91) (should be pasta, not past). There are several sentences that make absolutely no sense!I bought the Materbuilt smoker for my husband at Christmas. It will come out of its box today. I hope it is still under warranty, as the book says we will need a retrofit kit for the (mostly) non-working smoke tray. So, I have learned something from this book...and am sure I will continue to learn. However, $16.00 for a paperback that has not been edited, is totally in black an white, and manufactured poorly, is a rip off. (Some pages were folded into the book before they were trimmed.) In addition, Smoking' Bob wants me to download the book to take advantage of an ACTION GUIDE that will help me have the most success with cooking.....isn't that what THIS book should do??? This is painful reading. Take your head out of the smoker, Bob!! I'm back a week later...I have now opened my Masterbuilt smoker, read the directions, and used it as well. All I can say in a short amount of time is this: do not do what Bob says. Read your smoker directions and follow them. Some of the recipes (like for chicken) are good as far as seasoning goes. Then you are on your own! NEVER put charcoal in your Masterbullt smoker!!!
This is all in black and white and there are misspellings and errors. I am not a fan, guess I am critical because I work in education.
This book is very poorly written and produced. Full of typos, inconsistent recipes, pork under beef recipes, "whole skin-on boneless trout" doesn't exist, different cooking times in recipe and summary, and over all poor. Would return but not worth it.I'm not sure there is a good smoking cookbook.
While SOME of the info in here is good not all of it is. The wording is bad. Is was NOT edited you can tell. This is suppose to be for electric but it is basically charcoal. There is only a handful for electric recipes. The recipes do sound good though and ithe reader knows what they are doing can make it work the correct way unlike that the author is telling readers to do. Glad I didn't pay full price.I received this product at a discount in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
This book is supposed to be an "unofficial" masterbuilt smoker cookbook. Basically some guy copied and pasted things about smoking, recipes, etc and made a book out of it and is selling it under the famous masterbuilt name. The book might be more successful as a smoking meats book, using all kinds of smoking techniques, woods, and devices.Some tips if you are just starting out from my experiences with the Masterbuilt Smoker:1. Read the instruction manual that came with your masterbuilt electric smoker.2. Join the Masterbuilt Facebook group "my masterbuilt electric smoker".3. Smokingmeats.com forum and website offers a lot of tips and recipes.4. Don't buy this book. It's a waste of money because it's not edited for grammar and spelling. The temp and times are off. No pictures of completed recipes or step by step photos. No recipes for swineapple, the fatty or other stuffed meats. While some recipes are unique, they seem incomplete or not tested where they would be in more detail. For instance with the spice cake recipe, he tells you to put it in a baking sheet but doesn't specify what size. Cooking potatoes for 1 hour at 300 (when your masterbuilt smoker doesn't go up to 300) doesn't work. It should be 275 for 1.5-2 hours in your electric smoker.5. Buy Steven Raichlens book "Project Smoke" instead".
If you are a novice at using a smoke to cook your meat this book will be a big help in getting you started on the right path. Lots of basic tips on the different types of smokers the ones to buy or stay away from. Great tips on meat prep, smoker prep and plenty of good recipes. Although the book is written for the masterbuilt smoker it doesn't ignore the rest. I did purchase this a a discount for a fair and honest review for the kindle version. Bit at the end of the day if you want to learn to smoke the correct way it is a good read.
