I got this from my dad for my birthday and I immediately knew who it was written by. I have seen shows with him in it as well as his show on PBS and he is a funky guy, but smart.

The book, so far has been great. It is much less a cookbook than an explanation of how he got where he is and his philosophies on cooking, building smokers and more.

I am just getting to his section on wood (recipes are at the back) and will keep on going.

Makes me want an offset smoker (not a cheap one) as no way can I build one like he does.

In case anyone is interested:

His place in Austin has been getting plenty of run lately. He walks the walk, cooking on 4 huge offset smokers. He also has a bunch of Youtube videos, cooking on a little backyard offset. I think most might be from his PBS days but they are still entertaining.

It is a good read, and, in particular, his views on cooking temperatures were useful.

As far as I know, still coming. Had a slight delay when his two fabricators/welders left to start their own company. I think they probably saw the light & potential profit of working for themselves.

One thing that I was thinking of (as I was talking to my wife about Aaron's book), he pulls his briskets off at midnight and doesn't open until 11am and they slice to order.
What does he do with all the briskets when he pulls them off? Put them in huge coolers? Cambro's? That much thermal mass would take a long time to cool off, but what do you do with it all?
