Give me your favorite tailgating recipes

Going to be doing some tailgating tomorrow for the game, and I was just wondering what everyone else does when they tailgate. We usually cook burgers, but I don't feel like making 150 burgers for tomorrow, so I think I might do fried chicken. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Burgers are the old standby, but chicken is good too. Kabobs of all different types work real well. We also enjoy sausages. Another favorite that stems from our poor college days is grilled cheese believe it or not.

Beef strips, hot dogs (all beef), hamburgers, BRATS!!, steak, you name it, we've tailgated it. Of course, you are probably tailgating just ;) a football game. We tailgate NASCAR which is a full weekend proposition. Fried anything is taboo. It has to be fully grilled. Chicken breasts work but are costly if you are feeding 150. If it can be grilled, we've done it. What game are you tailgating?

150, and chicken is easier. We tailgate at least 12 times a year so it is always something different. The other night we had ribeye sandwiches. I have made fajitas, pulled pork, ribs, chicken breasts, caesar salad, brats, Vietnamese chicken salad, stata (for late morning), chicken fingers, pork tenderloin, etc. etc.

Thanks for the replies. We are tailgating for the first football game of the semester. I think kabobs could be a good thing to try, since they are relatively easy to assemble and I could make a ton of them. Due to cost constraints (fraternity), I think we are just going with hot dogs and sausages for tomorrow. Most of the money is put towards keeping everyone properly hydrated, since it tends to get pretty hot down here this time of year.

for us, it's the old standby of a pot of meatballs and sausages. it stays warm for a long time without reheating.

it's a fun challenge to try to make something that represents your opponents. such as turkey legs for when the giants play the eagles, or seared tuna when the jets play the dolphins.

haha I like the theme idea. Although I'm unsure as to how we might sear up some rajun cajuns (we're playing ULL).

Excuse my ignorance, I don't get what you all seem to understand about tailgating. As far as I know it involves cars driving too close behind the other. Can someone enlighten me? Thanks!

Tailgating is the name for the picnic you take to a football game (usually) or in Sephora's NASCAR case, an event where cars turn left for hours at a time. You set up your spread in the parking lot The football game can either be a college game or a pro game. It can be a VERY elaborate setup as we have seen at NCState games or just a picnic lunch out of the trunk of the car.
