Frequently asked questions.
Over the years we've been asked lots of questions about "How do we set up?" and "How many people can we feed?" and "Where can we do this?". Well listen up here and we'll try to answer your questions as best we know how.
1. How many people can you feed?(see what I mean?)
We have done groups of anywere from 10 to about 140
people. When we get above 45 people or so, we need
to add hired help. More help adds to the cost.
2. What beverages do you provide?
Cowboy coffee (thick enough to chew!) is provided
with most meals.
3. How do you cook the meal?
Everything is cooked in Dutch ovens or big pots over
mesquite coals. We typically need to be in an area where
we are allowed to make a fire. We can set up for
residential properties but we need to know ahead.
4. What are the menu items?
Well they vary from set up to set up. It can be anything
from pulled pork bbq to cowboy stew. Any cowboy meal
just has to have cowboy beans and biscuits. Dutch oven
peach cobbler and coffee fill in any left over spaces.
5. What is the cost per person?
The cost per person depends on how many people,
what type of menu you want. Give us a call and we
can talk over menus, numbers and prices.
6. Where do you set up?
Sometimes at the host home providing there is enough
space to set up the wagon and build a fire. Other places
can be arranged but we need plenty of notice.
7. How much is the entertainment and what kind
of music do you play?
A four man band $125.00 per man for 2 - 45 min
sets but, can be arranged differently if needed. The
music is late 1800's jug band, and Cowboy music.
9. Is your service available year round?
Typically we run the chuck wagon from
September thru May. The summer months
tend to be too hot for cooking over a FIRE!
No Holidays. ( We have families too)
10. Do you serve beer?
No we do not as we do not have a
liquor license, but we are not opposed to
BYOB if permitted and the parties are
responsible type folks.
This is the real deal folks, with cowboy
cookin' done over a mesquite coal fire
in cast iron Dutch ovens. Food just seems
to taste better that way. We encourage
folks to dress western as it adds to the
ambiance and fun.
