    Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings

    When the Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers face off on Sunday, there will be more on the line than just a playoff game: barbecue will also be at stake.

    The two cities' mayors have made a friendly wager on Sunday's game. If the Packers win, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings would provide Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt barbecue from the Pecan Lodge restaurant. If the Cowboys are triumphant, Schmitt agrees to supply Rawlings with a basket of what a statement describes only as "Wisconsin favorites."

    Schmitt says he's not just ready to eat some barbecue but to sample the "sweet taste of victory."

    But Rawlings cautions Schmitt if he wants Pecan Lodge barbecue, it'll have to be "on his own dime, since the Cowboys are bringing home the cheese Sunday."
