How To Cook Like A Cowboy

The best part of the Lubbock, Texas Cowboy Symposium is the Chuck Wagon cook-off, where cooks use authentic antique wagons and tools to cook a cowboy feast. Here's how to do it just like they did in the Old West.

Use this coffee grinder attached to your wagon to grind your beans.

The owner of this wagon told me the coffee grinder was really hard to find — he looked in antique stores and auctions for a long time before finding this authentically old one.


Recipe for Apple Pie Shots (you can tell I wrote it down after):

1 gal apple cider

1/2 gal apple juice

4-5 sticks cinnamon

3 cups sugar

Mix together and boil over an open flame, about 15 minutes.

When cool, add a fifth of Everclear. Chill overnight and serve. "Be safe and enjoy."
