Canadian River Renegades

The 21st Annual Chuck Wagon Cook off is scheduled for April 22 - 24th this year.

We had a really good turn out last year and are anticipating the same thing this year.

If you need tickets give Bucky a call at 575-403-7680 or Sharon at 575-403-8320,

and we can hold them til noon on the day of the event, after noon we will release them for resell.

Last year thanks to people making donations to our scholarship fund we were able

to give away 3 scholarships to local high school seniors.  Those seniors were

Kambry Burns, Adrienne Stone and Keilee Judd.




The 20th Annual Canadian River Renegades Cook Off was held last year and we ended up with 4 new

wagons that had never been to Logan

Ute Lake is open to out of State Residents and Camping is open.

You will need to make reservations if you are going to camp. Keep watching this web page

for updates on the Cook Off and Ticket sales 




As we finish our 20th year for the Canadian River Renegades Chuck Wagon we just want to take a minute to say Thanks to all the Wagons that participate and all the Sponsors that make this possible. Some of the Sponsors have been with us from the First Cook Off. Thank you for believeing in the event! Some of the Wagons have been here for all of the Cook Offs and they have become family as well as friends.

APRIL 23rd, 2021 will be our 20th year for the Cook Off - so mark your calendars!

2021 Cook Off at Ute Lake State Park

Even though we didn't have the Cook off in 2020 we had Wagons and individuals contribute money so that the Scholarships could be given. 

Thank you to those individuals that helped provide the Scholarships.

Chuck Wagon Etiquette

  • No one eats until Cookie calls out
  • A cowboy should never help himself to food without Cookie’s permission
  • Never take the last piece of food until every man has had his meal
  • Eat first; talk later
  • Finish your food. A plate not licked clean is an insult to the cook
  • Riders coming into or away from camp should always be downwind from the chuck wagon to avoid dust blowing into the food
  • Do not use the Cookie’s workspace as a dining table
  • If a cowboy is refilling his coffee cup, and someone yells, “Man at the pot,” the cowboy is obligated to fill every cup that’s held out, along with his own.
  • Strangers are always welcome
