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
