While some people love rolling out the grill and cooking up a storm on Super Bowl Sunday, I'm a big fan of bringing in at least a few items from the outside world. Not only does it ease up on the stress factor, but it also allows you and your game day crew to enjoy some dishes that you might not be able to execute on your own.

Do you really have the patience to make an IPA chili sauce with beer that you brewed for your smoked hot wings, like they do over at Beachwood BBQ? How about a recipe that comes even close to HeirloomLA's wild boar lasagna cupcakes or house-cured charcturie? Do you have 5 smokers working round the clock at your crib, cranking out brisket and ribs like Bludso's? I think not.

Last week we wrote about our favorite places to pick up some catered goods, and then shared them on the KTLA Morning News. Anchor Sam Rubin was so impressed by Bludso's brisket that he called to Kevin Bludso off set, saying, "You are the hero of the world. You have saved lives." Now, if only he could help me patent my 'que sauce perfume. I'm pretty darn sure that I wouldn't still be single if I smelled like his Texas-style BBQ.

Watch on.
