How does a Giants fan celebrate the start of the World Series? With a community supported agriculture box, of course.

Winning the title for "Game tie-in least likely ever to be seen in Dallas," San Francisco's popular 4505 Meats this week announced it was putting together two packages of locally grown, processed, butchered and cured meats intended for game-time snacking. The deluxe package, priced at $90, includes homemade chicharrones, spicy peanut cracker jacks, pork rillette, six beer brats and six dogs made with jalapeño and cheese.

4505 owners Ryan and Cesalee Farr are distributing their World Series boxes at Local Mission Eatery this afternoon and couldn't be reached for comment. But there are a few items in the locavore box that suggest Texas -- rarely considered the Bay Area's culinary equal -- may have an edge on northern California when it comes to tailgate food.

The box includes beer and jalapeño brisket, bean dip and homemade Fritos, 4505's version of the chip C.E. Doolin pioneered in his San Antonio kitchen. All the Farrs forgot was a serving of scratch-made queso.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
