National Tailgating Day

August 31, 2018

Celebrate National Tailgating Day with us on Saturday, September 1st, 2018. I'll be on WZZM 13 around 7:45 am with a tailgating segment. I'll show you my version of a Detroit Coney Dog, which I call my Campfire Coney Dogs. 

 

Updated on 9.1.18 - Here's a link to the tv segment. 

I like to simmer my hot dogs or brats in beer and then grill them. Whether you are using a grill or a campfire, I like to split them down the middle and grill them at the very end. The inside of the hot dog or brat is juicy and outside casings have a nice snap.

 

 

 

 

Tailgating Checklist - 

Coolers - If you have more than 1 cooler, label them 

Ice and a few frozen water bottles

Tent or canopy

Chairs - folding tables - extension cords 

Portable grill and accessories

Food - labeled - I like to use disposable containers for quick and easy clean up

Condiments - I use muffin tins with cupcake liners to hold the condiments 

Drinks - labeled 

Paper plates, napkins, plastic ware, cups, zip lock containers

Cook ware and utensils (don't forget knives and cutting boards)

Blender

Blankets - Music 

Clean-up supplies in a labeled bag (trash bags)

 

The easiest way to incorporate a lot of these items is to have a great cooler. I have a cooler called the "Coolest Cooler" and some of the great features include a cutting board, 2 separate compartments, ceramic knife, plates, wine opener, bottle opener, tie down bungee cord, waterproof USB charger, LED light switch, Bluetooth speakers, a blender and a rechargeable battery. I recommend finding a cooler that has tons of features so you have less items to pack for your tailgating adventure.
