In part one of this week's Three Course Meal, we gave you a look at Jason Boso, owner and executive chef of Cowboy Chow and Twisted Root Hamburger Company. In part two, we asked Boso to complete our thoughts for us. In today's final installment he shares a recipe for Brisket Sloppy Joes.

I was so excited when Boso sent this particular recipe. I somehow imaged it was a tightly held secret, but as Boso told me, the true secret is patience. Since I was stuck home because of the snow, I tried this recipe myself. You can see the results in the photo above and the last photo on the next page. The verdict? Shockingly easy, though very time consuming -- though mostly waiting as opposed to working. And they were delicious.

Another Jason Boso story??? I think this makes 3 in one week. With the Super Bowl in town this is the only story line you can promote? There must be a "special relationship" between the DO and Boso for him to get this kind of positive coverage.

How about telling DO readers the story behind the Bosso story.
