So your fantasy football draft is coming up next week, and you think you’re ready. You’ve done all the research on sleeper picks and injury risks. You’ve got your cheat sheet printed out, checked your wi-fi connection more than once, and stocked the fridge with beer. All set, right? Um, no. If you’re going to have upwards of 10 football enthusiasts in your house for three solid hours, you’d better have some food on hand.

Enter Wicker Park’s Smoke Daddy, whose new “Pig in a Box” promotion will please pigskin fans with — you guessed it — pork. Make that lots of pork. For $48, you’ll get four sections of baby back ribs, eight spare ribs, six rib tips, one pound of pork, six buns and two pints of side items (sweet potato fries, smoked pit beans, mac ‘n’ cheese, etc.). We’d recommend at least two orders for a full league gathering — we’d also recommend ordering a day in advance. Actually, that’s what they require to prepare such a meaty feast. And it’ll be worth it, trust us. Just make sure you’re not so distracted by BBQ that you end up drafting a kicker in the third round.
