    Is it too early to start a thread on tailgating menu for this Saturday? What is everyone thinking of cooking up this Saturday?

    We are having a difficult time coming up with something new and would like to hear what everyone else is thinking.

    Our potential ideas are:
    pork loin
    bbq pork
    I want to find a recipe for something buffalo wing style. Maybe homemade wings.
    All else fails, brats and burgers.

    The bacon in the middle looks raw.

    You mean for my seasoning, or what?

    I'm just going to cut the bone off friday night, season, and throw it on the grill saturday. Probably top it with some cheese and Gates BBQ sauce.

    Yeah, seasoning, rub, or marinade, whatever you prefer. Seems like most people have their own trick for getting their meat just right, and I like to learn what other people are doing.

    silly me. My first scan of your post read "beer brats with a sizzling side of panther lather on..."

    After a few seconds of consideration, I decided to re-read your post, and of course it made more sense.

    I've never made it but my buddy did and brought me a taste to try and it is well worth the 18 months it shaves off your life. That just means less time in the nursing home...

    Lately, I've been going with a combination of garlic salt, parika, black pepper, cumin, and ancho chile powder on my pork. I've been doing dry rubs on almost everything I've grilled the past couple years. The exception is deer. I cook deer at a few tailgates, and ALWAYS marinate it.

    That's probably what I'll hit it with on saturday.

    It's a lot of sodium intake, but oh so delicious. With other sides, one bacon explosion log will feed about 6.

    Not sure what I am doing yet. Pork chop sandwiches are easy. I like to use a thinner cut of boneless pork and marinate it in something first then throw it on the grill. Lots of possibilities depending on what you like for flavor our you can just grill it plain with a little bit of seasoning and add some BBQ sauce too.

    In the past I've done boneless pork roast and sliced it off for sandwiches too, for chicken boneless breasts, chicken quarters, chicken drumsticks, or even wings, can do all sorts of things with all those too.

    Beef is a little more tricky, pretty limited to steaks, boneless ribs, and burgers but you can do something like a hobo dinner where you take hamburger, cheese, and veggies and put them in tin foil to cook. Those are pretty good if you put the right ammounts of seasoning and contents in it Seems like the chunk cheese works better than the shredded every time I have done them.
