Melt-in-your-mouth pork shoulder topped with jalapenos, pico de gallo, and a homemade cheese sauce. Is your mouth watering yet? The primal flavors of the Realtree Big Game Rub will enhance the authentic flavor of the meat, so don’t be shy. Shake it on there like you’re doing a victory dance.

Why make plain wings when you can make Cajun Smoked Wings? These wings are so packed with Louisiana-style flavor, you’ll be licking every last finger. Pair with blue cheese dipping sauce and you’ll be the talk of the tailgate.

A cheesy twist on a classic. Homemade pimento cheese adds an oozy element that’ll have you reaching for the paper towels. This burger doesn’t need a lot of topping--just lettuce and tomato. Take your taste buds for a spin and bite in.
