Add a western theme to your next get together with food served from our authentic John Deere Chuck
Wagon. Meals prepared the old time way in Dutch Ovens and big cast iron pots,
cooked over real wood coals. No charcoal briquettes used here. In fact, we shot the last feller that brought
a bag in to camp! Our food is prepared just like the old cowboy cooks did it in the trail drive days.
 An old cowboy named Neil Clark put it pretty well when he said " A man who has had a hand
in the work and eaten Chuck Wagon food while sitting on a pail, is not quite the same again.
He has been his own man and lived free."
We can cook for large or small groups, corporate "get togethers," weddings, birthdays, or posse's.
We can even bring our team of Mules Pete and Jake.
We specialize in Cowboy Stew, Cowboy  Potatoes, sour dough biscuits, corn bread,
Mexican corn bread,
Cheryle's famous beans, cobbler, and Arbuckle's coffee!

Have the Bar E Crew cook at your next event!

 


 
 

Our wagon is also available for display only.
If you need an authentic Chuck Wagon on site for your next event give us a call.
We stay with the wagon, visit with your people, and give out a nice handout that
outlines the history of the Chuck Wagon.
Kids can even sit in the seat while mom and dad take their picture.

Anasazi Beans -
These beans date back a thousand years.
They're named after an extinct tribe of Pueblo Indians whose descendants still live in the four corners region of Colorado.
They can be substituted for pintos or red kidney beans.
They cook quicker, are very flavorful, and contain 75% less of the carbohydrates in pintos that cause gas!
They're hard to find in a store but we've managed to obtain a supply of them.
Our favorite bean! One pound package $2.50

A Little Cooking History

Tom started cooking before he was old enough to go to school because his mother became sick and was bed ridden for a long period of time. In their small four room house she could see into the kitchen from her bed and would direct his efforts from the bedroom. He had to stand in a chair to reach the stove and counter top. He's been cooking every since.
Cheryle got a late start at age 18 and was self taught as her mother never asked her to cook. They have about 100 years of combined experience in the kitchen. Tom says "we don't cook stuff you can't pronounce or use ingredients the average person never heard of, or knows where to get. Just good country food!"
