Heroin comes in a freebase hcl powder, in this form it can be smoked or snorted. But most users IV (inject) heroin as it is much more intense. Cooking heroin simply means mixing it with water (and sometimes citric acid) then heating untill the powder dissolve and what is left is a brown liquid which is then sucked into a needle (through a filter) then injected. So to put it simply, 'cooking heroin! is simply a preperation for injecting.
