This cookbook flashed across my page as I had recently bought a group of "Gunsmoke DVD's." Being a person that likes to cook and being a fan of Gunsmoke and other westerns I was naturally interested. I have tried a few of the recipes on the family and they were quite impressed with the meals. The recipe for the James Arness "Gunsmoking Chili" is very good and very hot (spicy), nothing like a chili that makes you sweat. The chili needless to say was very arresting (hope that made you laugh Jim). The cookbook is filled with pictures and stories of all the great cowboys and cowgals. This is a great book for the fans of cowboys and westerns. Well recommended.

I loved the stories behind the recipes as much as the recipes. I have tried quite a few of them and they are easy and hearty. I read the book from cover to cover as there are bits of nostalgia and trivia to delight any one who remembers the old westerns.It's functional, funny, and touching.
