"Cooking the Cowboy Way follows cowboy cooking across the continent - from Perini Ranch in Buffalo Gap all the way to Homeplace Ranch in Alberta, Canada. There are a couple of urban detours along this tour: the famous Gates Bar-B-Q in Kansas City, and Spears' own tailgate party in Arlington. ... Cooking the Cowboy Way is not a guide to old-fashioned ranch and trail grub. And that's a good thing. The book is an homage to the cowboy legacy, which Spears finds evolving on the nation's ranches." --Dallas Morning News
"[Grady Spears and June Naylor] went all over the country, with a heavy emphasis on Texas, of course, drawing inspiration from cooks on and around ranches large and small. They then took these recipes and adapted them for regular kitchens and modern uses (i.e., dinner parties and backyard cooking). The results sound great." --Texas Monthly

Santa Maria-style barbecue is a method of outdoor cooking that dates back to the early ranchos and land grants. It is still extremely popular and these days men spend weekends grilling away in grocery store parking lots on mobile barbecue pits; the smell of the oak wood fire, and grilling meat wafting in the air. Because of my Aunt Onie our family has a strong link to the area as well as to this style of cooking. As a child during the summer months the Nipomo's Men's Club held community barbecues on the weekends.Read more ›
When my girls were just knee high to a grasshopper I would take them camping and they always liked waking up to the smell of bacon,biscuts,home fries,eggs and grits over the camp fire.My girls are all grown up now and have children of their own and have blessed me with more memories,taking my grand children to those memorable camp fires, the morning breakfast and the adventure of the outdoors.
Nothing will ever compare to the time spent with your children and grand children,making memories for when you grow old and can't do it any longer,I hope I never see that day come.
But just like my grand mother handed down the cast iron cookware to my mother and my mother handed down same to me,I too will hand it down to my children along with the memories I will cherish forever.
The Cooking the Cowboy Way is about one of the finest recipe books I come across and would reccommend it to anyone,it's cooking made easy.
Why not start today and build memories with your children and grand kids.They grow up too quick and before you know it the time is gone, lost forever.
