"This is a must-have book in any food preserver's library. Not just for canning but for just about all methods of food preservation. There are excellent instructions on building and using a cold smoker. I notice quite a few differences in this new updated edition compared to the old 2nd edition I have and sometimes makes me wonder how we ever survived the back-to-earth movement of the 70s if all that information is now wrong. Still, definitely one of the best How-To books around."
