From Putumayo World Music, in an interview with Kermit Ruffins, trumpeter in the Rebirth Brass Band and Barbecue Swingers:

So you originally were barbecuing to have some hot food at the [Barbecue Swingers] shows, then the idea just caught on? Yep, the tailgating started [it] all. I would cook hot sausage for the guys during break time, and whatever was left over, we would give it to the fans. Then I bought a big grill and started cooking for everyone, still up [to] today!

Sounds like my kind of show. [via Boing Boing]
