A weekend of family-friendly competition, entertainment, and delicious frontier food awaits during the annual Pigeon Forge Chuck Wagon Cookoff Competition.

Teams will circle their wagons at Clabough’s Campground in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee for a day of frontier-inspired fun. Visitors can see the cowboys cook just as the early American chuck wagons did in the 1800s, relying on simple ingredients and cooking without modern conveniences like running water and electricity.

The cowboy cooks are judged and awarded based on food categories, including meat, potatoes, bread, beans and dessert, as well as the historical accuracy of their chuck wagons. The Chuck Wagon Cookoff helps in the preservation of cattle drive trail days and offers a great opportunity for visitors and locals alike to learn about America’s history.
