Chuck Wagon Dinner


Don’t miss our Chuck Wagon Cook-Off!

For great food, great fun, and a real taste of the old West, there’s nothing like a Chuck Wagon Cook-Off competition.

The chuck wagon has been an important part of our Western lifestyle since the cattle drives of the 1880’s.

On Saturday, we’ll have a group of authentic 1880s chuck wagons preparing the finest in cowboy cuisine, cooking up the best meals fit for the trail — all using traditional slow-cook, wood-fire methods.

The Chuck Wagon Cook-Off at A Painted View Ranch is officially sanctioned by the American Chuck Wagon Association. Our chuck wagons will be competing for cash prizes in a variety of categories including best wagon, best beef, potatoes and cobbler.
