After the Blazin' M Ranch's gates open at 5 p.m., visitors can wander through the Old West courtyard, modeled after a 19th-century ranching town. At 6:30 p.m., the dinner bell sounds, summoning visitors to the barn to fill their tin plates with a heaping cowboy dinner. Authentic cowboy meals include juicy chicken and ribs, baked potatoes loaded with butter and sour cream, and slow-cooked pinto beans. Servers toss fluffy biscuits about the dining room to waiting hands, and meals finish off with apple-caramel crisp and vanilla ice cream.
Sated, visitors lean back and take in the performance of the Blazin' M Cowboys, featuring Jim and Jeanne Martin. Five-time winner of the Western Music Association Yodeling Award, the duo sets toes tapping with dizzyingly dexterous guitar picking and tongue-tying hollers. Supporting characters pitch in zany comedy and funny stories before visitors get one more chance to head through the town's stores. The Chuckwagon supper and Western stage show will be closed all of January 2013. Children aged 2 and younger are admitted for free, but they must be mentioned when making a reservation.
Blazin' M Ranch
In 1966, Chuck Mabery bought a cattle ranch that dated back to the late 19th century, planting the seeds of the Blazin' M Ranch. After stints herding and growing vegetables, the flood of 1993 forced the Mabery family to start over, inspiring them to show off their musical talents at a traditional chuck-wagon dinner staged on the property. Fully renovated in 2010, the ranch now hosts an authentic Arizona frontier town where visitors can experience the cowboy life through such activities as lassoing mechanical steers, shooting wax bullets out of a real Colt .45, and learning how to easily covert ten-gallon hats into metric. A selection of shops fits customers out in Western-themed apparel, the copper Spur Saloon serves local wines and microbrews, and a museum delves into the history of the ranch, pioneer-era Arizona, and the Yavapai-Apache Nation. An old-time photo studio, "Pistols and Petticoats", allows groups to have their likeness captured while wearing Victorian costumes. At the museum, the unique Wood'n West Gallery enthralls visitors with moving dioramas of Western life, hand carved over 30 years by a master whittler.
