Summary
"Don't Mess With The Cook" was a well known saying in the ranching culture. They took no guff from anyone including the boss. They ruled their kitchens with an iron hand and a meat cleaver if necessary. Regardless of where that kitchen was, whether on the ground, in a camp wagon, cam house, or the shiny new kitchen at headquarters, it was theirs, and from those kitchens came some of the best food in the world. May their genius never be forgotten
