I pulled out my old food dehydrator this week and it's seen better days so I've decided to get a new one. I've also got the resources to build a cold smoker so I'm kicking around the idea of building one of those as well. (Heck - I might even build my own food dehydrator too if I could just find the fan, the element and the proper controls. )

But rather than surf the net I'd rather add to the cookbook library as it gives me something to read on snowy and rainy days.

So - for those of you who make your own sausage, jerky or dehydrated foods, what books would you recommend?

Thanks for the advice - I'm looking for some of those books now.

How about books by Monte Burch, Rytek Kutas or A. D. Livingston - anyone read anything by them?

I'm putting together a shopping list and I'm now getting a few books in early April, as I just reorganized the library and freed up some shelf space. (That was by getting rid of my old Windows Server course material as it was a decade out of date and I've gotten new stuff since.)

Oh - and does anyone know any good books specifically on jerky or on food dehydrating? As I mentioned above, there's both a dedicated cold smoker and a food dehydrator in the works for me this year.
