Smoking food is an age-old tradition. Today, however, we no longer smoke food to preserve it, but rather to enrich it and make it taste better. What was once a way to preserve food has now become a method to prepare "delicacies." Home Smoking will show you, step-by-step, how to smoke meats, fish, and poultry using different cooking techniques and various woods, plus how to smoke on an alcohol stove, barbecue grill, in a roasting pan, and wok, and how to build your own barrel smoker. Instructions for preparing and smoking your own food also come with delicious recipes for both the hot and cold smoking of pork, beef, fish, game, and chicken. For chefs of all skill levels.

Smoking and curing originated as ways to preserve food before the advent of tin cans, freezers and vacuum packs. Nowadays, these ancient skills are enjoying a comeback as many of us look towards a more self sufficient and rewarding way of preparing, storing and eating our food. In this book, author Joanna Farrow explains how with some basic ingredients and equipment, you can soon be salting, curing, air-drying, and smoking a whole range of seasonal and year-round produce. With clear instructions and advice to help you get started, plus 25 original recipes for meat, game, and shellfish, this book will give you the confidence and know-how to begin your own experiments. What could be more delicious than home-cured bacon, subtle smoked salmon, or air-dried ham? With guides to setting up your own smoker, preparing salt and brine cures, drying, and preserving, Self-Sufficiency Home Smoking and Curing is the perfect introduction to making the most of meat, fish, game and poultry.

Informed by the history of classic southern recipes, Southern Smoke is an intriguing dive into the barbecue of North Carolina, the Lowcountry, Memphis, and the Delta, with must-try meats, sides, and desserts. For years, Matthew Register, the owner and pitmaster of Southern Smoke Barbecue, has been obsessed with the history of southern recipes. Armed with a massive collection of cookbooks from the 1900s and overflowing boxes of recipe cards from his grandmother, he hits the kitchen. Over weeks, sometimes months, he forges updated versions of timeworn classics. Locals and tourists alike flock to his restaurant in Garland, North Carolina (population 700), to try these unique dishes. In this book, Matthew teaches the basics of smoking with a grill or smoker. He outlines how to manage the fire for long smoking sessions and shares pitmaster tips for common struggles (like overcoming "the stall" on large pieces of meat). He then explores iconic barbecue regions and traditions: Start off in North Carolina, the home of slow-smoked pork and tangy vinegar sauce. Other highlights include chicken quarters with church sauce, barbecue potatoes, collard chowder, and pork belly hash. Travel the Lowcountry, where seafood meets barbecue. Go all out with frogmore stew, pickled shrimp, and fire-roasted oysters, or sample unique recipes like funeral grits, likker pudding, and James Island shrimp pie. Then take a trip to Memphis and the Delta, a longtime barbecue hub known for dry-rubbed ribs. Other standouts might surprise you! Learn the secrets behind Delta tamales, Merigold tomatoes, okra fries with comeback sauce, and country style duck. And, of course, what barbecue spread is complete without baked goods? The final chapter includes everything from skillet cornbread and benne seed biscuits to chocolate chess pie and pecan-studded bread pudding. Whether you've long been a fan of barbecue or are just starting your own barbecue journey, Southern Smoke offers a unique collection of recipes and stories for today's home cook.

Often referred to as 'required reading' for school governors since its original publication, Joan Sallis' down-to-earth approach ensures that it is the most relevant introduction to working practices for new and recently appointed governors. School governors are overwhelmed with instructions on what they have to do. This book is different - it concentrates on helping them to do it. It gives governors a survival kit based on a clearer understanding of their role. This includes guidance on boundaries, better management of sensitive relationships, and knowledge of those rules and good practices which make for better teamwork. Joan Sallis is nationally known and respected for her writing and lecturing on school government and her weekly advice column in the TES. Above all, she is known for treating difficult issues with humanity and humour in everyday language. In 1996 she was awarded the OBE for services to education. In her role as the national president of the Campaign for State Education and as a consultant working with and on behalf of school governors for many years, Joan believes passionately that a better partnership between schools and their users offers the only hope for better funded and respected state education. She has been a governor of her local comprehensive school for many years.
