    I was pleased to find that not only is Texas BBQ represented in the first chapter, but the book also recommends the use of wood-burning, offset firebox pits. Unfortunately, the book is a let down when it comes to BBQ sauce.I have two major points of contention with the lone recipe that is provided:First, the authors admit that the only reason that the book even contains a BBQ sauce recipe is at the request of their New England-based publisher, and while their chastising is mildly amusing, I have to agree with the Yankee: the vast majority of Texas diners that I've met take their brisket/sausage/chicken/etc with sauce. It is disturbing that the Jamisons, while attempting to write a Texas cookbook, had to be strong-armed by a Red Sox fan into coughing up a BBQ sauce recipe.Second, the recipe that is offered is a tangy, syrup-y concoction the likes of which I've never seen served with Texas BBQ. I certainly can't claim to have tasted the sauces from a majority of Texas purveyors of Q, but none of the ones that I have tried, from Austin to Houston, resemble "Ol' Red's". I expect something thinner, not a glaze, more savory with a hint of smokiness and very little tang.The Jamisons need to rethink their seemingly limited view of "the perfection of cookery"'s most recognizable accompaniment.

    This cookbook was sent to my son, He cooks for a large number of people. I haven't heard any feed back. So he's either hasn't used it or he was not impressed with it.

    I have owned this book for over 10 years now and have cooked many things in it. I'm telling you honestly that I have yet to cook something out of here that doesn't get snacked on constantly or rave reviews from people that visit. My original copy of this fell apart from being used so much. What I wound up having to do was cut the spine off of the book and rebind it myself.

    Shortly after moving to Michigan from my home state of Texas I found Texas Home Cooking. I was doubtful that it would bring back the tastes of home I was craving. It has proven to be the only cookbook I pull out when seeking out a dish to wow my new family and friends. It truly is a reflection of Texas cooking from the Tex-Mex section (salsas, enchiladas, tamales and more) to the classic American home cooked favorites (B-B-Q, steaks, chicken fried steak, sweet potatoes) that are famous in the south. I use it for reference to recreate that dish I had and on a night when I want to try something new.

    I struggled for quite some time trying to find a Southern cookbook that wasn't, you know, full of frou-frou recipes that no one in their right mind would actually use. This is it. This has that recipe for jalapeno cornbread you've been looking for. Jambalaya dressing, Jezebel sauce, praline pie and enough different chilis to start your own cook-off.Stories and techniques accompany most recipes; shoot, I love just sitting and reading it. I may as well throw my Joy of Cooking away -- I'm never gonna touch it again.

    Most cookbooks have standard recipes that do an okay job of getting the food cooked._Texas Home Cooking_ does one thing that most others don't. They have all of those little cooking secrets that add an extra zing to what would have been standard recipes.Just their beer mop recipe has become a staple of my cooking palate. But they have so many other recipes that really make my guests cheer.Those extra steps make steaks, fried chicken, meat loaf, fries, and other american/mexican foods into real comfort food.This is my favorite cookbook (out of 40 in my collection)

    It's hard to imagine why this book appears to have been "remaindered" for sale in off-price bookstores, for it is a genuinely amusing, fascinating and generally excellent tour through regional Texas cuisine -- with none of the pretensions of the "celebrity" chefs. All of the recipes are positively fantastic. I give this book as a gift for anyone moving to or from Texas. Can't recommend it highly enough!
