Chuckwagon Etiquette"

1. No one eats until Cookie calls
2. When Cookie calls, everyone comes a runnin'
3. Hungry cowboys wait for no man. They fill their plates, fill their bellies, and then move on so stragglers can fill their plates
4. Cowboys eat first, talk later.
5. It's okay to eat with your fingers. The food is clean
6. If you're refilling the coffee cup and someone yells "Man at the pot." You're obliged to serve refills.
7. Don't take the last serving unless your sure you're the last man.
8. Food left on the plate is an insult to the cook.
9. No running or saddling a horse near the wagon. And when you ride off, always ride down wind from the wagon.
10. If you come across any decent firewood, bring it back to the wagon
11. Strangers are always welcome at the wagon.

Dutch Oven Biscuits
1/4 cup lard or other shortening 1/2 cup warm water 2 cups flour 1/2 cup dry milk powder 2 tablespoons sugar 1 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt Build a charcoal fire with 36 briquets, and let them burn until they are covered with ash. Place 12 of the coals in a circle. Place a 12 inch Dutch oven over the circle of coals. Add the shortening to the Dutch oven and heat until melted. Using pot holders, tilt the Dutch oven to lightly coat the interior with the melted shortening. Pour the melted shortening into the warm water, and combine with the dry ingredients, which have been mixed together well. Stir just to make a soft dough. Drop heaping tablespoons of the dough into the Dutch oven. Place the lid on top and use a spade to place the remaining coals on the lid. Cook the biscuits until lightly browned, 15-20 minutes. Serve hot with wild honey.
