Compiled after more than four decades of observing and picking the brains of a plethora of top shots and creative camp chefs, the ultimate collection of wingshooting wisdom and tasty culinary delights is now available to the public.
“Bustin’ Clays & Cookin’ Game with Old Boots & Bacon Grease II” masterfully melds together the worlds of wingshooting and outdoor cooking. The unique offering is a collaboration of Old Boots, an award-winning author and the 1984 Live Flyer World Champion, and features masterful illustrations by the 2004 Texas State Artist Sam Caldwell.
“Bustin’ Clays” offers a collection of fun, easy and informative suggestions on how to handle a variety of clay targets and wild game – featuring outdoor recipes for all types of tasty dishes.
The fun tales, delightful dining delights and healthy dash of veteran wisdom are a must have for the gear bag of outdoor enthusiasts of any skill level.
“Bustin’ Clays” is the third in a series of Old Boots cookbooks and was preceded by the publication of “The Campfire Chef: Old Boots and Bacon Grease,” in 2002; and “Revenge of Old Boots and Bacon Grease,” that was the Texas Outdoor Writers Association book of the year in 2006.
In addition, Old Boots is the mastermind behind Chef Ralph’s Super Seasoning, the best universal seasoning since salt and pepper that brings out the good taste in a variety of game, meats, fish and vegetables. A dash on the rim of a margarita glass makes a “Ralph-A-Rita” a magical beverage.
The wide variety of artistic creations and illustrations featured in “Bustin’ Clays” vividly display the talents of Caldwell, a veteran award-winning artist who is among the very select few to be honored with the title of Texas Artist of the Year.
Caldwell’s creations are both entertaining and informative, providing an artistic perspective of the great outdoors through an accomplished illustrator’s eyes.
If smacking targets with authority and enjoying the bounty of the great outdoors is a person’s goal, “Bustin’ Clays & Cookin’ Game with Old Boots & Bacon Grease II” can help get the job done.
Examples of Winingham’s smokepole and camp cooking wisdom can be found scattered throughout this site for the entertainment and enlightenment of my fellow outdoor enthusiasts.
