Are you a heavy-duty tailgater?
Then you probably have this tailgating thing down!
For the rest of us non-professionals, some tips might be useful before heading out to cheer on your team – and eat like a champ!
Tip #1 – Prepare as much food as you can beforehand. You don’t want to spend ALL your tailgate time working away over a hot propane stove.
Tip #2 – Keep it simple. Do you really want a four-course meal with dijonnaise sauce and delicate fritters? No! You’re out in a parking lot for goodness’ sake. Try brisket. Ribs. Burgers. Steak. Bite-sized appetizers.
Tip #3 – Never, ever run out of food. We don’t want a brawl on our hands. Those fans get hungry!
Tip #4 – Since you will be following tip #3, make sure to bring a cooler specifically for leftovers. Tailgate food is great even the next day! But you have to store it properly so it will keep.
Have fun cheering on your team at your next tailgate party. And eat a rib for me!
