"It’s not enough that football and BBQ go so well together. We want to be a part of the experience, the celebration whether that’s in your living room, your tailgate, or in our stores watching Saturday college football or Sunday pro ball," explains Chris Morocco, a past Clemson Quarterback and executive with Shane’s Rib Shack. "As an all-American barbecue concept, it’s natural that Shane’s supports America’s favorite sport, not just in the food we serve but at the high school level as we engage in programs that recognize future stars."
Staging the Perfect Tailgate:
Shane’s is making it easy this football season by providing three party platters in small (satisfies 5 to 6) and large (satisfies 10 to 12)--Baby Back Ribs, Chicken Wings, and Chicken Tenders--all accompanied with an ample supply of Shane’s sauce. Going along with Shane’s barbecue is a list of tips for hosting the best tailgate according to tailgate commissioner, Joe Cahn.
1. Dressing in team colors.
2. Planning your menu.
3. Making a list of needed items.
4. Flying a spirited locator flag.
5. Decorating your tailgate site.
6. Meet your tailgate neighbors.
7. Have food ready to eat one and a half hours before kick-off.
Of course, this football season, Shane’s plans on making barbecue a part of high school, college, and professional football weekends--at home, at the stadium, or at Shane’s--regardless of rank, school size, or division.
The original Shane's Rib Shack was founded in 2002, in rural McDonough, Georgia, by Shane Thompson who started the restaurant using the secret BBQ sauce recipe of his grandfather, Big Dad.
