GBH A&M-Mizzou Tailgate Event Recap

New, 42 comments

We hosted over 2000 people at our second tailgate of the season.

We held another real-life GBH Tailgate before Texas A&M vs. Mizzou on 11/15, and it was an unforgettable party! A couple thousand of our closest friends enjoyed great beef and pork bbq, chicken and waffles, jambalaya, beer, wine, spirits, and more. We're done tailgating this season but we plan on hosting more events in 2015. If you, your company, or someone you know might be interested in sponsorship or donating products, please contact us at gbh@sbnation.com for more information.

750+ people RSVP'd on Facebook alone for the tailgate and the event was promoted by sponsor Candy 95 along with our website and other social media accounts.

A Message from Pitmaster Joe

Thanks everyone for coming out and helping us throw another fun tailgate! American Homestead Natural Meats returned to provide all of the pork and 44 Farms graciously provided the awesome beef ribs. The pork shoulders and ribs again were outstanding quality and based on feedback, we will be doing more with the pork bellies in tailgates to come. 44 Farms beef short ribs were phenomenal and you can see why many well-known BBQs and restaurants around Texas use them. We have already had conversations about branching out to try some other great cuts of beef.

What an amazing tailgate y'all put on! The food was amazing, drinks were great, and it was a lot of fun. The hospitality couldn't have been any better. Big shout-out to the guy who was manning the grill/running the thing. We were in the long line for the bar and he came over and asked what we wanted. So he brought us both a can of beer. Then I saw him making the rounds with a case of beer because he felt bad about the long line. What an Aggie!

Seriously, this was such a great tailgate. I'm glad my fiance and I stopped by. I hope you continue to throw them in the future, because we'll definitely be there!

Gig 'em,
Maria
