    Tailgating Recipes/Ideas 2008 edition

    It's that time of year again. What are some good, easy tailgating recipes? Labor Day is also coming up, so fresh ideas for grill recipes would be nice to know.

    Re: Tailgating Recipes/Ideas 2008 edition

    I'm having smoked Brisket on Thursday. I'll apply my 'secret' dry rub, give it two hours of smoke using hickory/apple and peach chips then I'll wrap it in tin foil, give it a cup of beer and a handful of kosher salt, wrap it up tight and let it slow cook for an additional 8 hours. Let it rest for 20-30 minutes and then it's eating time.

    Granted I won't be at the game, but I'll be sitting on the patio pretending to be tailgating.

    Any kind of food interferes with my buzz, so I've got nothing for you

    I tried some pineapple brats a couple weeks ago. They were excellent and really matched up well with the bottle(s) of Newcastle I had.

    Re: Tailgating Recipes/Ideas 2008 edition

    I'm doing this for burgers:
    1 lb of beef
    2 garlic cloves
    Onions and peppers (amount and variety up to you)
    one egg
    handfull of bread crumbs
    seasoning salts/spices (again, do your own thing here)

    I'll be doing all the prep work wednesday night. Chop the onions, garlic and peppers up very finely, and sautee them in olive oil with some vinegar until they are soft, and then mix them with the beef along with the egg and bread crumbs (holds everything together, and makes it easier for forming patties) and your desired spices. Mix it as evenly as possible, and shape into patties. Top it off with some pepper jack, and wash it down with an Olde Main Off-Kilter (at least this is my plan) and you have a winner! As far as the pepper/onion/spices go, I'll be using red onions, fresno and jalapeno peppers, lawry's, garlic salt, chili powder and worchestershire sauce.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Those sound excellent. I suggest mixing in some bacon and cheddar sometime as well if you haven't tried it. Do you find the higher fat (80/20) works best for holding the patty together or do you go with a more lean ground beef?

    Ever tried doing a shrimp boil?

    Shrimp, kielbasa, corn on the cob, potatoes, and whatever else you want to throw in. Pretty tasty....

    I'll actually be using venison that has been mixed with beef tallow. It retains that leanness of venison, but it actually tastes just like beef. I think higher fat beef holds together better, but if you use the egg and bread crumbs, it does the trick w/out sacrificing leanness. You can also use and kind of ground meat you want. For example, I've used ground pork before and it turned out really well.

    Re: Tailgating Recipes/Ideas 2008 edition

    Since I won't have enough time for prep I thought I'd just go with homemade guacamole (sp?) dip with On The Border chips. oh, and beer!
    Have to admit though, the pineapple brats someone else mentioned sound mighty fine. And beer.

    I'm trying to think of something really good for the ISU/iowa game. Possibly Hellfire wings or something. And beer.


    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    I'm a big fan of the Butthole Chicken/Hawk for Iowa games. It's very easy and one of the best tasting chicken dishes you'll ever have. It also provides for a lot of good jokes around the grill.

    CFers, Iowa State tailgating is in my opinion the best in the nation. Tailgating, great food and friendly people is synonymous with Cyclone football. Be good hosts to your friends, extend hospitality good food and good beer to strangers and visting fans! Be bold in your menu choices. Wow people at JTS. Cook like champions!

    If anyone is doing a Shrimp boil, I will be there!

    I think we are going to do Phillies this game. Maybe brats...


    Just in case you didn't know... I'm a girl.
