TAMPA — A lot of Kansas City Chiefs fans in the Tampa area will be at a watch party at a soccer stadium during Super Bowl LV.
The Florida-based Chiefs fan club Arrowhead South is hosting its “Run it Back 2 Back BBQ Tour” at Al Lang Stadium in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Richard Fergola of Fergolicious BBQ in Gardner, Kansas, has helped organize the event. Entry to the event includes a plate of barbecue
“I grew up in a family where eating brought everybody together and barbecue does that. I just like putting smiles on everybody’s faces,” Fergola said.
He flew to Florida from Gardner and is using the help of Florida-based pit master Rub Bagby of Swamp Boys BBQ to smoke the meat.
Bagby is a fan of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The team faces the Chiefs in the Super Bowl. Both men admit there’s been some trash talk back and forth.
Proceeds from the event benefit the Kansas City Barbecue Society’s foundation.
