How about sausage and peppers? Or pulled pork with sauce? You can make both ahead, leave them in large foil baking pans (like for roasting turkey) and then just place it on the grill, stirring it every so often. Have a nice assortment of rolls and breads available.

It's the remnants of Ernesto here, so it's damp and chilly. I'd consider large pots of mulled cider and cake donuts, as well.


I always enjoyed the tailgating part ever so much more than the actual game part if football was involved.

Thank you Gretchen!

It can be at other events other than just sporting events too. At every concert we go to we tailgate. depending on the show, you will find different things in the lot. For shows like the Grateful Dead or Phish you would find things like grilled cheese and veggie burritos and things like that. For Jimmy Buffet you would find all sort of things, but there would always be margaritas for tailgating.

geebs read my mind. We don't do football games very often, but have tailgated to a fare-the-well at concerts. The Buffet parking lot parties are legendary. Some people go to the gigs just for that.

Hey now ~ I've done Pitt Football and Steelers/Panthers/LA Rams/San Diego Chargers too. ;) But YES, my primary tailgating is NASCAR. 35 years or so. Basically, it's any event where you bring your cooking with you. Grab the grill and go. 150 is a huge number. I'm impressed.

When Ernesto was rolling through I told my wife "I bet you wish I had made a pot of chili now, huh?" Where's the icy stare smilie?

For football parties (haven't done much tailgaiting) I like chili a lot! Also steaks and brats would work. Keeping it simple allows me to focus on the game.
