Grady Spears latest cookbook, Cooking the Cowboy Way: Recipes Inspired by Campfires, Chuck Wagons, and Ranch Kitchens, is another one to add to your collection if you are a fan of barbecue and Southwester recipes.

Filled with wonderful tastes from ranches throughout the US and Canada, Cooking the Cowboy Way offers southwestern twists on many favorites.

Some of the tasty delights you will experience in this book include recipes for:

  • Eggs over Sourdough-Battered Chicken-Fried Steak
  • Green Chile Cream Gravy
  • Lamb Tenderloin with Green Olive Jam
  • Great Grandmother’s Hoecakes
  • Ranch Rubbed Prime Rib
  • Bob’s Famous Baby Back Ribs
  • Cheesy Corn Bake
  • Brazos Berry Cream Pie
  • Green and Citrus Salad with Lemon-Basil Vinaigrette

Because cowboys spend long days outdoors in every kind of weather, sometimes for weeks at a time, satiating a cowboy’s hunger is a challenge for ranch cooks from Texas to Florida, north into Canada, and south of the border into Mexico. This collection of almost one hundred recipes is not only the result of Grady’s journey across North America, but also the cowboy’s journey through history.

In this, Grady’s new cookbook, you’ll have a ringside seat at the rodeo as Grady wrestles down new recipes from some incredible cowboy cooks and kitchen wranglers who know what hungry cow folks want to eat. And in the process, you’ll hear stories about the heritage of the chuck wagon and ranch kitchens, where the menus are still stoked by the traditions of the Old West just as they have been for a century or more.
