Ahhhh, so it seems most of you have hot food when tailgating. We always have a cold picnic when tailgating here as it means opening the back of the vehicle and laying the food out in there a la royal polo match style.
(At least to us it does.) Otherwise, if a grill is involved, we just call it a BBQ.
And I guess that is not totally right either.
It all gets confusing somehow...lolol
Its always interesting how different parts of the world do/call things another way. I have always got to remember that Americans call what we know as prawns, shrimp. Shrimp here are the wee ones.
Anyways, it sounds pretty wonderful your kind of tailgating. Some great food ideas. May just adopt your style if I can convince the Kiwis to give up the bacon and egg pie and banana cake!!
