Dr Pepper Game Time Gear

Brought to you by Dr Pepper® and Albertsons Companies.
With college football season nearly upon us, here's a great way to save $5 on fan gear for the new season. Before we get to that though, let's see how we prepare for our weekend football homegating. 

Our secret to homegating is plenty of barbecue food. Either takeout from the local rib joint or something home cooked in our smoker, you'll never go home hungry if you stop at our place for football. We also couldn’t forget Dr Pepper from our Albertsons store.

Our favorite meal to eat out of the smoker is smoked lamb shoulder. Similar in nature to pork shoulder/butt, the meat is full of muscle. For best results, you want to cook the meat low and slow to get the lamb tender. No more than 195 degrees Fahrenheit. We made the mistake once of letting the meat get up to 200 degrees. Big oops of a $40 cut of meat. Yes, lamb is not cheap, so be extremely careful with it. But it is tasty... Boneless works best as it is easier to pull apart, plus you're not taking up all the space in the smoker with the bone. Typically, the butcher will cut it out for no extra charge.

Once the meat is cooked, we'll pull the meat apart and more than likely make quesadillas with it. Pulled lamb sandwiches are another favorite to eat. Anything you might put pulled pork in, you can replace with pulled lamb. I have not tried pulled lamb with coleslaw though. It does go well with pulled pork, so I would think it would match up well. I just can't vouch for the success of that combination.

Now onto the deal from Dr Pepper...

Right now when you buy any 2 Dr Pepper 12-Pack 12oz Cans, 6-Pack 16.9oz Bottles, or 8-Pack 12oz Bottles from the family of stores run by Albertsons and text FANGEAR to 811811, you can get a $5 Fanatics promo code. Follow instructions to send a photo of your Albertsons receipt to and you'll get a $5 Fanatics promo code. Of course you can check out the Hot New College Products at Fanatics anytime, but after you get the $5 promo code, you'll be more likely to purchase something....

Then be sure to incorporate Dr Pepper into your own football season gatherings.
