I am forever looking for a new slaw recipe to try on pulled pork sandwiches and this one pretty much “takes the cake”. It has a kick that you won’t soon forget if you make it according to the recipe. If you are afraid it might be a bit much, consider leaving out the smoked habanero powder on the first go around as that stuff, as delicious as it is, packs a major punch.

smoke-wood-fire-book-cover

Smoke, Wood, Fire: The Advanced Guide to Smoking Meat – Unlike the first book, this book does not focus on recipes but rather uses every square inch of every page teaching you how to smoke meat. What my first book touched on, this second book takes it into much greater detail with lots of pictures.

It also includes a complete, step-by-step tutorial for making your own smoked “streaky” bacon using a 100 year old brine recipe.
