Is Grub Slinger use today for cook?

Postby teresa1971 on Fri Jan 16, 2015 8:56 pm

I know there are working ranch out there that have their own cooks. Are these terms or slang are in use today for ranch cook?

Grub Slinger, Grub Spoiler, and Grubworm.

I wonder if I used Grub Cook if this the correct term.

Teresa :D :) ;) :o :shock: :? 8-) :lol:

Offhand, I've heard of "Hash Slinger", usually meaning a quick order cook.

I believe cooks on a ranch are just called Cook Joe

Yep. and if old Ian Tyson says, so I'll not argue the fact. Read his lyrics to "Night Rider's Lament":

While I was out a-ridin'
the graveyard shift, midnight 'til dawn
The moon was as bright as a reading light
For a letter from an old friend back home.

And he asked me, "Why do you ride for your money?
Tell me, why do you rope for short pay?
You ain't gettin' nowhere, and you're losin' your share,
Boy, you must have gone crazy out there."

He tells me, "Last night, I run into Jenny,
She's married, and she has a good life.
Boy, you shore missed the track
when you never came back -
She's the perfect professional's wife.

And she asked me, 'Why does he ride for his money?
Tell me, why does he rope for short pay?
He ain't a-gettin' nowhere, and he's losin' his share,
Well, he must have gone crazy out there.'"

But they ain't never seen the Northern Lights,
They ain't never seen a hawk on the wing,
They ain't never seen spring hit the Great Divide,
Well, they never heard old camp cookie sing.
