"My Bad Boyz of BBQ is the unofficial tailgating ambassador of Raider Nation. We've fed 50,000 people, many of which are opposing fans. We're not beating anybody to a pulp -- we don't even serve alcohol, just upscale food. At an average game, we go through 250 pounds of meat, including salmon, fresh grilled oysters, chicken tri-tip, ribs, tenderloin, even whole hogs. The last hog, at a Jets game, we named Sanchez. He was tasty."
