The Chuck Wagon

The chuck wagon was essential to the life of cowboys on the trail. It was the hub of the camp, and a kitchen for the cook. Cowboys took special care around the wagon so as not to disturb the cook or his food. “You don’t do anything to upset the cook because, well, he’s the only one you’re going to get anything to eat from,” John Conway, Rafter JB chuck wagon cook, said.
