About the Author

Authors of fifteen cookbook and travel guides, Cheryl and Bill Jamison write with passion and wit about barbecue, American home cooking, the food and culture of the Southwest, and tropical beach travel. Considered leading authorities on each of these topics, the Jamisons are among the nation's most-lauded culinary professionals, with honors that include four James Beard Awards, an IACP award, and numerous other awards. Bon Appetit has pronounced the Jamisons "the king and queen of grilling and smoking." They are the authors of many books, including the best-selling Smoke & Spice, which has sold over one million copies, and The Border Cookbook. When not busy researching, developing recipes, or writing, the Jamisons are frequent guest instructors at many prestigious cooking schools, including Les Gourmettes in Phoenix and Central Market's five Texas locations. Cheryl is a guest instructor at the Santa Fe School of Cooking, teaching traditional and contemporary Southwestern and Mexican cooking. She is also a member of the International Association of Culinary Professionals, Slow Foods, and past president of Friends of the Santa Fe Area Farmers' Market and the Northern New Mexico chapter of Les Dames d'Escoffier. Bill grew up in Texas, understanding from birth that smoked brisket was the food of gods. Cheryl grew up in rural Illinois, where 'barbecue' was a Sloppy Joe, so she had some catching up to do. For two decades they have lived in Tesuque, New Mexico, just outside of Santa Fe, in a converted adobe dairy barn shaded by fruit trees.
