GBH Real Tailgate Recap

New, 55 comments

We rolled out two pits and a mess of great donors and sponsors for a Good Bull Hunting tailgate for Texas A&M vs. Ole Miss. The results on the field were forgettable, but the tailgate was legendary.

We held a real life GBH Tailgate before Texas A&M vs. Ole Miss on 10/11, and it was a huge success! Hundreds and hundreds of people cycled through the massive tract of land Tailgate Troubadours secured for the event. The Troubadours' setup included five tents, two TVs, a full service bar, a BBQ pit (we brought one too), and plenty of tables and chairs.

Due to popular demand for the A&M-Missouri game on Saturday, November 15th, we plan to throw another tailgate party. If you, your company, or someone you know might be interested in sponsorship or donating to the event, please take a look at this PDF for information and contact us at gbh@sbnation.com

At the last event, we hosted at least 750 guests after receiving 550 RSVPs on Facebook alone.

I hope everyone enjoyed the BBQ. We cooked approximately ~150lbs of meat and didn’t have any leftovers. A huge thanks goes out to American Homestead Natural Pork. If you enjoyed the meat, as much as I’d love to take all the credit, I was given some really great pork to cook with. The marbling and tenderness of the cuts was obvious and it’s no wonder they supply some of the nation’s best meat sections. Definitely give them a look online, especially if you are doing some serious smoking or grilling. - Joe Delaro, Pitmaster

There was a lot of discussion about the different beers and how great they tasted. I am not a whiskey drinker, but the shots were popular and it tasted great. - Roy Clark

Getting to match up faces with satirical anecdotes and Photoshop excellence was probably the highlight of my day. The setup was wonderful and so accommodating, and the folks that I had the privilege of meeting were hands down some of the most wonderful people I’ve met. Thanks GBH! -Amanda Leach '13

I had a great time at the Good Bull Hunting Tailgate. My mom had never been to College Station so I brought her with me to the tailgate and she loved it! The beer from Southern Star was great. I usually don't drink beer, but it went really well with the barbeque. I'm definitely planning on going to the next one! - Claire Camstra, Texas A&M Grad student

The Good Bull Hunting Tailgate before the Ole Miss game was a great time! It was fun having free whiskey from Rio Brazos, and the cupcakes from Cake Junkie were delicious! I'll be sure to stop by again! - Kendra Williamson, Texas A&M PhD candidate
