NFL season is just around the corner and thousands of people staked their claim early in stadium parking lots and we are talking tail gating and we are joined by the bad boys of barbecue I'm out of Franca and this is the sports. It's time to turn up heat appears this sports dish. Which she honor for uncle. Joining me thinking of the Grail heat its record for the bad boys of Barbeque hurt a pregame party out there raiders game it's like no other I've ever seen before. Yeah we are one of the most extreme tailgate in the country so she can do well at all stark. When the raiders came back in 1995 there was just myself and you guys. And now or the point where between three and 400 people every game. Wow and this is plague your average pick up truck that you guys take out to the game you have like a full on arrayed like stacked with everything you need for tailgating. Yeah we have actually two enclosed trailers. The trailer that night so we call a party in a box only need as a location. We have everything you can imagine we have grills. Smokers cookers tense cables we have a refrigerator. We don't have that you probably don't need it and our second trailer. Is immediate trailer that in every home game would bring about ten televisions. And we set those up so we can watch all of pregame early games while Warren join our barbecue. So what's it like when you had to a raider game like this Sunday do you wake up at 5 in the morning load everything up and go stake your claim. Are you always in the same spot every weekend. While we can wake up at 5 in the morning but the trailers are pre loaded the night before which makes a whole lot easier we do you have the same spot. It's one of the benefits that we've been given from the raiders organization. For all we used to help promote. Happy atmosphere. Out there. So when you say there's Warren to people that had a tear tailgate did you know. These Bieber they just friends of family they hear about you and they just come up and they just they wanna participate. Know people actually come from all over the world they come from Canada Scotland England Australia Japan Mexico. And of course all of the United States. So it's like he's selling ticket and then they'd get feud fur tail gating prior to the game or is it just kind of whoever comes up it's a plate. Well actually what we. I'll networks about we have wrist bands and you can open you up portraits or wrist band will put it on you so it makes it real easy to identify who's part of the parties who has sent because. There's so much going on all the food to keep these we have an easy out there are so the party gets rocket and I mean assist. Really a lot of fun because people bring their kids their wives or girlfriends. That's the kind of outlets are we created out here. And so what do you surfer typical game day spread. Well we start with an important start with a sword sausages hot links pineapple plot that could be kebab. Or whatever else could buy an unduly sausage to give the party go on while they are cook and we have our ever. Famous grilled chicken. If you could come with a plastic fork try to get that the staple that they they come from everywhere awesome games will do Ramsey could be pulled pork could be Boris get. We do grilled salmon we have fresh oysters we get from Washington State tonight before. We do have our side issues beans Celtics center we'd ever main state we're I would try to mix it up a little bit just to keep people guessing. Any of the step that you just named it could be something you're eating at a tailgate party before it. Oh absolutely and we provide all the sodas and water you possibly can handle. How much is a typical risk and cost are supporting organ donation. That's actually pretty fair I think even gonna hang up for a couple hours and party with your friends with drinks and shoot twenty FedEx is a really good deal. You know we're out there you know why are try to make it very affordable for everybody because as we know law it's getting more and more expensive to do anything these days so. And it works out volume basis where Evelyn do a lot for a little too that everybody have a good jobs. So really come as Anders standing at the best tale attitudes are ones you can hold with one hand. In theory that's correct but we've taken it to another level all the things we do it. In the past people will be like Barbour a hot daughter saw something you can older sandwiched. We upped the game a little bit you know wanted to. These are little different so we give you a small plate put everything on you can sit down and relax a little bit socialize yeah have a good I'm. Mason I'm a begin Aaron I'm heading out to tailgate and I want that you know. A stop at a barbecue and you know makes MP what is the best advice you have for beginners. Simple foods especially you know that your early knew that it because. It takes a little bit odd percent of your grown on everything and there's only a few hours before game time so you don't want to elaborate with things that the other good thing it's a pre prepared we think at home so here you are site initiatives and your confidence already ago he consult on a backer whatever. And have a right there make it as simple as possible. Cancer Kirk of bad boys a barbecue joint team right now on the sports dish so.
