    Tailgating -- Charcoal Grills

    I've brought up a charcoal grill before, but are these technically against the rules?

    Re: Tailgating -- Charcoal Grills

    Not that I know of, I wish they'd make a charcoal disposal somewhere like some stadiums do because I feel bad just dumping the ashes out on the ground.

    Re: Tailgating -- Charcoal Grills

    What do most people use for grilling at tailgates?

    Re: Tailgating -- Charcoal Grills

    No! like if you have a small charcoal grill (I've seen full-sized ones in the lots too) Arrowhead stadium has a big bin you can throw the ashes in which would be nice to have a few of those located in the lot. Would keep the lots cleaner and less chance some hot coals start something up.

    Re: Tailgating -- Charcoal Grills

    I have a small charcoal and gas grill for tailgating. I've used charcoal plenty while tailgating. We've always dumped ashes into whatever receptacle was available.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Tailgating -- Charcoal Grills

    I have seen people burn there feet from coals from charcoal grills from people dumping them between vehicles and not properly getting rid of them. I know a few that had to go to the hospital.

    But according to the people that dumped the coals it was there fault for wearing flip flops and not paying attention to where they walked.

    So you're the guy starting fires in the plastic garbage barrels?

    People who use charcoal at tailgates should have to eat the leftover coals rather than dumping the coals on the ground or into plastic garbage barrels.

    We dump water on them and throw them in metal garbage barrels.

    Yes we use this same grill and it works great....
    But when it gets cold we do bring a fire pit to stay warm and yes we do make sure the coals are put out for all the people worried about buring thier feet.

    I use the same Weber grill setup, best grill for tailgating.

    A COUPLE OF YRS AGO, WE HAD MAJOR FIRES IN GARBAGE BARRELS BECAUSE OF COALS BEING DUMPED . I Have nothing against charcoal grills, just the MORONS who dump hot coals.

    Ya that grill is the best. I have TG in G7 for 2 years now and havent seen said fires but yes, those would **** me off as well. Everyone I go with does it the right way with charcoal, with that said there will always be idiots.

    Re: Tailgating -- Charcoal Grills

    Here is mine... Love it.. Used twice so far, once at the Indy race and once for the Nationwide race.



    upgraded from this...



    Have to say the fire and ice was with me for 6 years about so it was hard to get rid of.
