The Jamisons have played a leading role in the recent revival of good, robust American
cooking. Cheryl and Bill helped to stimulate the trend with American Home Cooking, A Real
American Breakfast, and The Border Cookbook, all finalists and winners of prestigious awards
from the James Beard Foundation and the International Association of Culinary Professionals.
Often called "America's Outdoor Cooking Experts," they are among the country's foremost authorities
on barbecue, grilling, and smoke cooking. Their top-selling cookbooks in the field include Beard
Award-winners The Big Book of Outdoor Cooking & Entertaining and Smoke & Spice, as well
as Good-Times, Good Grilling, and Born to Grill. Cheryl is Contributing Culinary
Editor for New Mexico Magazine and writes a monthly column and regular blog called Tasting NM.
