The All-American Cowboy
by Cheryl Rogers-Barnett, Ken Beck & Jim
A sequel to The All-American Cowboy Cookbook, The All-American Cowboy Grill
is blazing a new trail through the Old West as it partners more than 250 savory
recipes from American cowboys and cowgirls of movie, TV, rodeo, and music fame
with 200 photos and a couple of dozen sidebars of related interest. Writers Ken
Beck and Jim Clark are known as hearty-eaters, but they also had just enough
Cowboy wisdom to include Cheryl Rogers-Barnett, daughter of Roy Rogers and Dale
Evans, in compiling this book.
Of particular interest to Mayberry fans
will be recipes from and photos of Don Knotts, George Lindsey, Betty Lynn, James
Best, Denver Pyle, Gail Davis, Buddy Ebsen, Howard McNear, Sue Ane Langdon, Leo
Gordon, and director Earl Bellamy.
Riding shotgun with the recipes of
the celebrities are mouth-watering recipes rustled up by cooks from some of the
top real-life ranches of the western United States.
This time around the
call to "come and get it!" has the cooks focusing on recipes for the home and
patio grill. The bulk of the recipes feature entrees, the star of the grill, but
those recipes are complemented with a variety of other dishes that can be
prepared on the grill, including vegetables, breads, and desserts, and an
assortment of foods that would accompany a grilled supper such as cool, cool
beverages and side dishes.
