State Fair of Texas to unveil ultimate tailgate food

  This tailgate item features ribs, pulled pork, deboned chicken wings, sausage, a burger, jalepeno poppers and cheese.

Texas does not mess around when it comes to tailgating.

The latest proof: The State Fair of Texas is unveiling one of the most incredible tailgate items you’ll ever see starting next week.

The Fried Tailgate Party features baby back ribs, deboned Buffalo wings, pulled pork, sausage, jalapeno poppers wrapped in bacon, a burger and cheese all inside of fried biscuit dough. A football design is then made on top of the biscuit with ranch dressing.

No, we're not making this up. This is actually going to be sold.

If you’re brave enough to order this calorie bomb, it won’t set your wallet back too much. The fair is selling the Fried Tailgate Party for $7.

The item will be accompanied with either a Texas or an Oklahoma napkin in honor of this year’s Red River Showdown between the two teams that will take place on Oct. 10 at the Cotton Bowl.
