Jamie's American Road Trip: Episode 2

Tuesday, September 8 on 4

This week, Jamie wants to see if the cowboys he loved as a kid still exist. Following the traditions of the pioneer settlers, camp-fire cooking, simple recipes and hard graft are the order of the day. First stop is Cody, Wyoming, where Jamie joins the young men taking part in the rodeo for their traditional pitchfork fondue: hunks of steak fried on a pitchfork. Keen to sample real cowboy life for himself, Jamie travels upstate to work as a ranch-hand and camp cook at a local working ranch, taking in branding, roping, as well as castrating cattle.
