What do two chuckwagon drivers, a saddle bronc rider and a barrel racer do when they aren’t busy competing at the Calgary Stampede rodeo? On Thursday, July 13th at 11AM they will be cooking on the Western Showcase Kitchen Theatre stage in BMO Market Hall A, competing in the first Kitchen Theatre Cowboy Cook-off.

Chuckwagon drivers Chad Harden and Codey McCurrach will go up against Barrel Racer Tiany Schuster and Saddle Bronc Rider Cody DeMoss in a battle of the breakfasts. They will be making their best version of eggs, a breakfast dish using Spolombo’s sausages and finally some tasty biscuits.
