Having Successfully Fed Strangers in New Jersey, SI's Tailgate Tour Heads to Purdue

Now that the event is in the rearview (tailgate joke), those of you who had great or passing interest might be wondering: How did it go?

It went well. In particular, I defy you to look at the smoked pork butt (:51 mark) and not weep:
