Peach cobbler, biscuits stir up appetites at San Antonio rodeo

The crowds are expected to be big at the rodeo this weekend. If you are headed to the Freeman Coliseum, you might want to go hungry.

Butch Dohmann has been making biscuits and peach cobbler for forty years. He is with the Soup Bone Cattle Company and specializes in dutch ovens. 

Biscuits are a treat for rodeo cowboys. Especially this year with the cold arctic blast.

“Everyone comes over for peach cobbler too it goes real fast,”  Butch warns.”We won’t be able to keep up with biscuits. It takes ninety seconds to get rid of fifty biscuits.”

You’ll find Butch at the rodeo pouring hot cowboy coffee, making hot biscuits and making dough for peach cobbler.
