What says Cowboys more than a chuck wagon?
It was the center of a cattle drive. The hearth where the cowhands gathered for nourishment and camaraderie.
Where the cook reigned supreme; tolerating no complaints and certainly no horses near his fire. Carefully arranged to the cook’s exact liking, not to be messed with or invaded.
The chuck wagon was his domain: he guarded it jealously, but shared it generously.
