Backyard Oil follows the fortunes of the most boot-strappinâ€™ oil men in all of Appalachia â€“ magnate Jimmy Reliford, and his howling sidekick Mad Dog; greasy olâ€™ polecat Coomer — whoâ€™s raking in a tidy $300K per month thanks to an oil strike in his own backyard; a bearded hillbilly named Rascal, who uses a set of brass rods to dowse for oil; and the Page Boys, a father-son team who canâ€™t help but bicker about everything…except finding that sweet, sweet crude! Hellfire, boys. Weâ€™re gonna be richer than…aww come on, YOU know! Now that oil fetches close to $100 a barrel, thereâ€™s a modern day oil boom hittin’ these hills, and folks are a-clamorin’ to enlist the services of our heroes…at $25,000 a pop. These are the Newbies, a motley lot whose future rides on a jet of “black gold” spewing from that blowpipe. If they hit, itâ€™s a gilded trot up Easy Street. If they donâ€™t…well, shoot. Better luck next time! You ainâ€™t a real oilman till youâ€™ve lost money in this here game. Play your cards right, and youâ€™ll laughing…all the way to the bank.
