A DVD by Joe & Victoria Dinsmore
    Best guide to the pre-smoking method
  • Excellent step-by-step instructions
  • Efficient tanning method
  • It is a home video (don't expect Dances With Wolves).
Joe and Victoria Dinsmore's home video guide to the popular pre-smoking method. These two tanners have proved the effectiveness of this traditional method in a way that has inspired many brain tanners to adopt it whole-heartedly, and nearly everyone to use it to some degree.

Like any tanning method, the results come from getting the details right and understanding how it works. In this video, Joe and Victoria walk the viewer through the entire process and show you exactly how they do it, and why. By far the best resource on the pre-smoking method.

Worth its weight in gold
Reviewed By: Timothy L Blanchard from Albany, New York     March 11 2000

I just received this video. I couldn't wait to see it. It is worth it's weight in gold! The Dinsmores did an excellent job in this video. After watching the process on video I really feel confident to start tanning hides. I will be watching this again and again! They definitely make you feel that tanning hides really isn't so hard or complicated. I cannot say enough good things about this video! It will be in the VCR every step of the way once I get started tanning! 

I would like to know how long to smoke the hides. Joe said in the video that he smokes them in his smoker for 9-12 hours. Does he turn the hide over or not? Does he put the flesh side up or down? What does he use as a guide to say that the hide is done being smoked? I am already figuring out where I'm going to build my smoker. This video is an excellent reference on the pre-smoke method. It is money well spent for anyone considering tanning hides!
