My sweet hubby and I attended the 2011 Cowboy Symposium and Chuck Wagon cook off at Ruidoza Downs in Ruidoza New Mexico. What an event! It was three full days of chuck wagon cooking, county music, dutch oven demonstrations, western arts and crafts. We attended a Mel Tillis Concert and Mel did an amazing job along with the Texas Playboys. This happens every year in October so if anyone gets a chance, make plans to go.
|This little wagon that is pulled behind the bigger Chuck wagon is called a "hoodlum"|
|Just setting up camp!|
|Everything on the wagon is authentic and each camp is judged and awarded points for each item such as ax, water barrel, tools, bedrolls and even shaving items of the era.|
