to embarrass her. >> but after i saw him dance the first time, i said he's going to be fine. >> not everybody loves to dance, but everybody loves to eat and every football fan loves to tailgate. what do you have going on with this great pork recipe challenge? >> well, as you know, you may not know this, but 42% of the people who are tailgating, prefer pork over any other meat. so what we are doing right now, we are showing people and giving people an opportunity to enter into the contest. you can go to the otherwhitemeat.com and join in at the great pork recipe playoff and submit your recipe as a recipe that can be voted on and if you are voted as the one recipe to win, you can join me at the big game in miami and we can have our own tailgating party. our own cookoff, our own challenge with my ribs, your ribs, your pork shoulders, my pork shoulders.
your pork loins, my pork loins. we can have a ball. >> the food there you have looks fantastic. >> we have some corn here. we have some coleslaw. we have some chips. >> we have emmett's favorite, famous ribs also on the grill. which are amazing. emmett has an awesome recipe, where he uses cayenne pepper, garlic salt, liquid smoke, pepper, he marinates them overnight in a zip lock bag or a big container. it is absolutely amazing. he is kind of modest about it, but i got to brag on him a little bit. >> it's generally marinated in a big container. we normally fixing about 7 to 8, maybe 10 slabs of ribs at a time. so therefore, i have to prepare my meat the night before. i have to make sure my heat is perfect. i have to get my temperature up to 200, 250.
when i put the meat on there, the smoke is coming. you can smell the smoke throughout the neighborhood. i have birds flying around, hanging out on the walls watching me cook, because it is smelling so good in the neighborhood. >> not only does this man dance and play football, but he is a good griller, too. >> you got it made, pat. >> i got it made. >> look, as long as we are talking football, what do you think of the ravens this year? because we are all big fans on this end. >> i think the ravens are going to do fine. i think joe did a great job last year and he should be turning the corner now. i expect a lot more from him. but i think the baltimore fans are expecting joe to continue to turn the corner and get that ravens team headed in the right direction. they have a great leader over there, ray lewis and ed reed back in the secondary. so your team in baltimore should be competing against the titans and many other teams in the afc side and having a chance to really truly make the playoffs this year. >> and also, i wish you luck
in 2010 hall of fame voting. >> well, i appreciate it. i tell you, i'm nominated in january. hopefully i'm voted in or nominated this year and hopefully i'm voted in. if i'm voted in, trust me, believe me, the tailgate party, you ain't seen a party like a tailgate party we are going to have. it's going to be a nice time. >> lots of ribs. thank you very much. >> lots of ribs. >> i'm going to write down your recipe from the otherwhitemeat.com for your tailgate ribs and maybe enter the contest. >> you won't get the whole entire recipe. you are going to get some of it. >> oh, come on. >> the secret side, huh? >> i have to keep some of it for myself. >> all right. >> no one is taking my recipe and competing against me with my own recipe. >> when i win the contest, i'll come down and eat your
