    If you don't plan on grilling, I suggest walking tacos. It works well if you have a bunch of people coming. Each person brings one ingredient.

    Re: Tailgate Food

    Take some potatos, onions, pepers, mushrooms, and what everelse you like; slice them all up, put them in foil put half a stick or so of real butter on them, close the foil and put them on the grill. In 30 mins or whenever the tatters are soft take them off and enjoy. Heck you probaly could chop some steak up and fry in the foil as well.

    Re: Tailgate Food

    Main course - steak baby, do it on the grill. Use burgers and chicken breasts as side dishes and brats as appetizers. Mmmm, that's good eating.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    Re: Tailgate Food

    We're having Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches, specially prepared with cardinal and gold bell peppers. These are always a big treat at a tailgate and their relatively easy to make, although I can't help you with the recipe. My job is to eat them.

    the best chili i've ever made uses elk burger instead of beef. the elk has a very good flavor and texture, and also won't mask the flavor of the other ingredients like the beef will.

    We use the lots just east of the volleyball courts, back by the haunted forest. Cost last season was $15 and I don't think there are any restrictions as far as who can park and who can use tents. I think it's open to anyone. I believe they open at 12pm (noon) this week.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong.


    TRUE & VALIANT

    Re: Tailgate Food

    Last week I took about 4 lbs of chicken wings, dry rubbed them with some garlic, grille seasoning, liquid smoke (and whatever else was within arm's reach) and grilled them. After grilling, I put them in a crock pot with a half stick of butter and a bottle of wings&things sauce. After about 30 minutes, they were falling off the bone. This of course requires electric for the crock pot- we have a sweet '72 Winnie.

    Can't disagree with MontyBurns though- Brats are always a good appetizer!
