Format: Plastic Comb
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.

Not only a cook book, but a trip down "Memory Lane" with scores of pictures of Cowboy and Cowgirl stars of now and yesterday. Can be used as a "Coffee Table Book" as well as an addition to your cookbook collection. If the receipes aren't to your taste, the nostalgia will be!

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.

Cowboy Cookin' FUN!!!!!!!! Feb. 3 2007
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Plastic Comb
I absolutely LOVED this book. I'm a big fan of Gene Autry and Roy Rogers, and was delighted to see pictures of them in there, and actual recipes from the real people! Not only are the recipes real cowboy food, but the facts, trivia, and other neat stuff in the book is just as much part of the book as the recipes! The sections are labeled in a very western-y style: Appetizers are "The Frontier", Beverages are "Watering Hole", Soups and stews are "Stir-ups", and so on.

There's a whole section on chili, one of my favorite foods! I was very excited to find "Gene Autry's Texas Chili", and several from Roy Rogers too. There's recipes from all the greatest cowboys in there; from TV stars to rodeo champions, to just ranches who still love the American cowboy and his great food. There's a recipe from the show Gunsmoke, called "Gun-smokin' Chili", which I thought was really neat! The desserts are great as well (just like everything else in the book!). From pies to cakes to cookies and ice cream, it's got it all! I really love cowboys, and I am a cowgirl myself. I have my own horse, and wear a cowboy hat, boots, a leather belt and a big belt buckle with a horse on it every day. This All American Cowboy Cookbook really hit the spot! I can't wait to show it to my friend, who is also a cowgirl.

Still great after 15 years... Dec 1 2012
By BillR - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound
This cookbook is great in two ways-- first, for anyone who grew up watching Westerns like Gunsmoke, Bonanza, and The Rifleman, the book has pictures, stories and background on dozens of the old stars. It's a fun read where you'll find a few "oh, I remember that now!" moments.

Secondly, the recipes are good whenever you want to whip something up. More than once I've wanted to cook something and found the recipe here when it wasn't in any of my other books. For example, when I wanted to make peanut butter pie, a favorite from when I was young, none of my other books had it; this has not one recipe but two, depending on how fancy you want to get with it. I guess it's not such a surprise, since the recipes are the favorites of the actors they describe, but all that I've cooked from this book have been good. Try the chorizo corn chili- fantastic!

Best Of The West July 20 2009
By John Thomas... - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
I bought this cookbook along with 4 or 5 other cowboy/chuck wagon style cookbooks on Amazon. Of them all, this one is by far the pick of the litter. It is not only filled with a whole bunch of finger licking good old time recipes from beans and bacon to trailside stew, but its also chock full of all kinds of rare pictures and facts about our favorite TV westerns and movies from televisions golden age. Its fun, interesting, delicious, and well worth your money. No wonder it has become hard to find. There isn't another like it here or anywhere else I have found. Dang burn it.....Go for it!!!!!
