AbstractArticle provides an in-depth examination of the food, meals, and cooking techniques commonly used to feed a traditional cowboy outfit. In the case of cattle drives and round-ups, meals were prepared for the cowhands by a cook who ran the chuck wagon and was also responsible for setting up the campsite. The cook was considered so vital to an outfit that he generally commanded wages equal or greater than top hands. The author describes how various food items were stored and prepared in a cowboy camp.
