    Hi, my name is Susan from Mesa, AZ. I just bought an electric smoker and used once to smoke salmon. Pleased with the results, but am clueless where to go from here. Would love to know about a book that addresses electric smokers specifically, if there is one available.

    Yes, I mean....there are books available, start with the Library if possible, as I did. Truthfully, the 'search bar' above is your best, greatest learning tool anywhere IMO. Whatever you want to smoke or grill just type it in and dozens of posts will show up, most with pictures, to help guide you and to use as a reference. Start a folder on your desktop and start copy & pasting recipes in it for future use. Trust me, you're 'to do' list will get long as you see things you must make. Pork butts are a very forgiving meat to start with, as is some chicken, like quarters. Not a very expensive loss IF you make a mistake. A member by name of BearCarver has numerous step by step tutorials for various cuts and he uses an electric smoker. So, you're off to a good start...just do some research here and you'll be smoking up a storm......HTH, Willie

    Hi Susan, welcome to the forum. Lots of great info and great folks here. You won't find a book that has more recipes, info, tricks and tips than you can find right here. And there isn't a book out there that can answer a question for you in the middle of your cook like you can right here. Just ask and you'll get all the help you need. Welcome aboard, you'll be smoking like a pro in no time.
