Whenever we work cattle, I have to hire extra cowboys. They show up early expecting cowboy coffee, and I'll cook them a little something over the fire for breakfast. They've made it clear: "No cowboy coffee, no cowboy work!" It's always ready when they get here about daylight. I just have to put up with the comments like, "It'll hold up a horse shoe" or, "You don't drink his coffee, you twist off a cup and chew a sip offa the top!"

If you like deer meat, you have to try this recipe. Every time i make this it never lasts more than 15 minutes in my house. All ingredients can be combined and cooked in crock pot on medium heat for better flavor.
This is a recipe a friend of the family made us when I was a kid, many years ago. I have played with it over the years trying to reproduce it, and this is close enough. As camp cook, I used to make this for my hunting buddies before everyone went out into the wilderness hunting for the day... They loved it. At home it is still a frequent treat.
This easy Jello(R) pie recipe is a family FAVORITE! The whole family went crazy, it's the best recipe on this planet! But refrigerate over night if possible. And don't use the freezer!

Green Chili is very popular where I live in New Mexico, you can find it in almost anything. I decided to pair up our state's famous green chili with eggs and cheese for a delicious breakfast burrito. As a nod to our neighbor state, Texas, I added jalapenos which gave the burritos a great kick. It's perfect "man" food for breakfast - it fills you up, has some heat, and doesn't take all day to prepare. Also, this breakfast is portable, wrap them tightly in foil and you are good to go!
Carne Asada tacos. Very easy entertaining recipe. If you can wield a food processor and a set of tongs, you are set. I always kick off the summer camping season by doing these over the campfire. The nice thing about this recipe is that you can do most everything beforehand, leaving you time to quaff a few with your buddies. Perfect for tailgating or camping where people stand while they eat.
The meatiest burger oozing with cheese a man could possibly create. Uses buffalo meat instead of beef for a slightly different take on the classic cheese-stuffed hamburger experience.
This is a vinegar and mustard based "Carolina Style" sauce, as opposed to most ketchup and molasses based sauces. The combination of sweet and tangy flavors brings out the absolute best in grilled pork and chicken. This is the only sauce I use for my ribs!
Spicy, sweet and tasty beef jerky. Very easy to make and very tasty. A good trail snack or while fishing. Good while watching a game on TV, or take some to your favorite watering hole and share the wealth around. Low in fat treat.
A slight deviation from the typical ketchup- or vinegar-based rib sauces; this sweet Asian-inspired sauce gives ribs a different taste.
