Big News!! My first cookbook, Healthy Electric Smoker Cookbook: 100 Recipes with All-Natural Ingredients and Fewer Carbs!, will be coming out on May 7th! This book is a labor of love, with many of my most popular blog recipes included in this book that will show you how to add smoky flavor to just about anything, from spices and cocktails to smoked desserts! I’ve also included Cast-iron cooking techniques that make it easy to go right from smoker to table for easy entertaining, with all of the recipes being all natural with no junk ingredients and paleo and keto friendly swap outs for those following those diets. And while the book says it is for an Electric smoker, these recipes can be used on any kind of grill or smoker- I promise this book will make you look like an outdoor cooking rockstar!

Using smoke to add UMAMI to anything you cook

I’ve included entertaining menus for weekend cookouts, brunch, Thanksgiving and even a Tex Mex themed dinner party to set you up for success. You’ll also find wood pairing suggestions, optimal meats for smoking, smoker maintenance and much more.  Some of my favorite recipes include:

  • Smoked Artichokes with Chef’s Dressing
  • Citrus and Herb Smoked Whole Snapper
  • Garlic and Bacon Smoked Oysters
  • Jamaican Jerk Chicken
  • Chipotle Cherry Beef Jerky
  • Alabama White Sauce Smoked Chicken
  • Smoked Tri-Tip with Chimichurri
  • Poblano Peach Blue Corn Bread
  • Bourbon and Salted Caramel Apple Pie
  • Cedar Planked Peaches with Mascarpone and Honey

A little smoky flavor can also be a game-changer for a classic cocktail.


Books that do well on Amazon Pre-order get better ranking when the book becomes available so I’d be SUPER APPRECIATIVE if you can share some love and give me an order! I wrote this book during an emotional time in our family as I lost my cousin to breast cancer and then my dog in the same month, these recipes provided some distraction and emotional support during that time. I hope they bring you joy by empowering you to make amazing food that warms the hearts and tummies of those around you!
