Tailgating is one of those American traditions that comes to life at every sports game. You and your friends will have enjoyed chowing down at somebody’s tailgate and will have had ideas of hosting one yourself. A portable gas grill is the centerpiece for such an occasion, but a lot of preparation is needed.
If you are planning to grill popular tailgate foods such as burgers, hotdogs, and skewers, as well as preparing a salad, the night before the game should be spent on placing their ingredients in containers. All meat products should be well-marinated and ready for grilling.
It pays to have all your tailgating tools in one spot for easy access, such as your basting brush and sauces. You can put all cooking tools and condiments in a special toolbox. Other items like paper plates and plastic dinnerware may be organized in small plastic boxes or tubs for easy access. Don’t forget to stock your coolers with cold drinks and a lot of ice.
As long as you prepare your portable grill, ingredients, drinks, and other essentials ahead of time, everything else will fall into place, and you and your guests can enjoy the tailgate party over refreshing drinks and delicious food. In many important occasions such as a sports game, nothing brings people together better than tasty, grilled treats.
