Keep 'Em Full and Keep 'Em Rollin': The All-American Chuckwagon Cookbook

Front Cover
Globe Pequot Press, 2021 - 224 pages
A local rancher and Texas Panhandle pioneer, Charles Goodnight, is credited with inventing the chuckwagon, an iconic part of the great cattle drives of the 19th and early 20th centuries, and a critical part of keeping cattle moving across the Great Plains. The fire-pit cooking techniques used to keep the hard-working cowhands fed are still popular today. And many experienced chuckwagon cooks are still hard at work today--chuckwagon cook-offs are a popular competitive arena for their skills. Keep 'Em Full and Keep 'Em Moving: The All-American Chuckwagon Cookbook is full of more than 100 recipes and the histories of the ranches. It also includes first-hand accounts of life on the range from the men and women who worked them alongside archival images and stunning food photography.
