- Due to a bug in the PS3 version of the game, it is possible to obtain infinite copies of the book from a raider in the Bethesda East offices who respawns every 73 game hours.
- An image of this book is copied onto a slide for the Vault Dweller's Survival Guide. The slide's identifying number is VDSG Plate #619-58.
- It is likely that "recipes" is an analogy to combat tactics involving the flamer, presented in a humorous format of a cookbook.
- This is the only skill book unique to Fallout 3, as it is not present in earlier games and does not return in Fallout: New Vegas, due to the Big Guns skill being collapsed into Guns, Energy Weapons and Explosives, as well as being replaced by Survival. Nonetheless, the item itself is still present in the resources of Fallout: New Vegas, but is not placed anywhere in game.
