Carnivore kitchen was basically a one man operation by a brother named Wade, and he set up for the first time in the parking lot at the 1995 New Mexico annual gathering. He set up inside the gathering at the 1997 and 1998 annuals. As its name says, it was a kitchen that served meat, and only meat, kept before cooking in ice chests which he had to arrange to be refilled constantly, something he voiced his frustration at often. His intention was to provide an alternative to the vegetarian menus of almost every other kitchen at the gathering, and he was able to find many takers when he was able to offer it. He supplied himself from his own funds and the donation can that he set out, and served only at his kitchen, never sending to the main Dinner Circle.
