Cowboy cooking at its best!

Do you follow Cowboy Kent Rollins on YouTube? If you do (and you should) you are already familiar with his signature brand of good, honest, cooking, food that sticks to your ribs and gets you ready to tackle life head-on with a full belly and a happy heart. His infectious personality makes every video a pleasure to watch and his food is the kind of stuff you really crave. There's nothing fancy here. It's about delicious food.

Rollins is the king of the cast iron skillet and the grill, and now there's a new way for you to enjoy his down-home, from-the-ranch recipes. In his new cookbook, Faith, Family & The Feast, Rollins and his wife Shannon bring you oh-so-tasty, cravable recipes "to feed your crew from the grill, garden, and iron skillet."
