September 24, 2015 | Melissa Ireland

Football and Tailgating go together like PB & J, bread and butter, peas and carrots, you get the gist! However, today’s definition of tailgating is very different, it has come a long way from throwing frozen burgers on your portable grill. We’re talking about hauling out your smokers, deep fryers and outdoor cookers out on game day for shrimp skewers, smoked pulled pork, homemade pub burgers and even lobster boils. If you are ready to up your tailgating game make sure to grab these must have tailgating products!
