Tailgating, Tips and Tricks

Tailgate Tips

Cooking for a crowd is hard enough — but making everything portable requires some MacGyver-like skills. Here are some simple ways to overcome tailgating hassles.

  1. Make hand-held food. Only napkins needed!
  2. Freeze water bottles. They pack well in the ice chest and you can drink them later.
  3. Semi-homemade. The cook should have fun, too. Purchase items that don’t require a lot of work: pre-sliced cheese, bottled sauces, chips, bakery cookies, etc.
  4. Clean up. Bring an empty tub and load all of your dirty dishes into it to haul home later. Use chlorine wipes for quick wipe-downs.
