Personal Notes:
I made this dish in an iron kettle for 20 ranch hands when I was young. The cowboys liked this food but before long the boss decided they needed me for other jobs. For one thing, I could imitate the sound of birds and animals and on the ranch, when a calf was missing, I would make a call of a calf calling for its mother so convincing that the mother of the calf would go find it. She didn't go to the sound, she knew I wasn't the calf. Ernest "The Birdman" age 83 (or more!)
