Chuck wagon Etiquette
No one eats until Cookie calls
When Cookie calls, everyone comes a runnin'
Hungry cowboys wait for no man. They fill their plates, fill their
bellies, and then move on so stragglers can fill their plates
Cowboys eat first, talk later.
It's okay to eat with your fingers. The food is clean
If you're refilling the coffee cup and someone yells "Man at the pot."
You're obliged to serve refills.
Don't take the last serving unless your sure you're the last man.
Food left on the plate is an insult to the cook.
No running or saddling a horse near the wagon. And when you ride off,
always ride down wind from the wagon.
If you come across any decent firewood, bring it back to the wagon
Strangers are always welcome at the wagon.
When Cookie was finished with
his work for the day and before hitting the sack, he would always place
the tongue of the chuck wagon facing north. When the trail master
started in the morning he would look at the tongue and then knew what
direction he would be moving the herd.
