Is Your Tailgate Ready for Kickoff?

Bring on the heat for bowl season!

Fans flock to their team’s city or gathering place hours before kickoff to enjoy socializing with friends and family and celebrating their team. When thinking about the basic items needed for the perfect tailgate, there’s food, drinks and a TV. If you’ve got those three things covered, you’ll fit right in.


If you’re traveling for the game, you’ll need to be sure to select a grill that is easily portable. We like the Blue Rhino Outdoor LP Gas/Charcoal Grill because it gives you a couple of cooking options. If you’re looking for something to throw burgers on before entering the stadium, you might like the gas option, so you can get the grill hot quickly and cooled down by the end of the game. For those who setup on campus or at the field to spend the day and watch the game from the tailgate, you might prefer the charcoal option so you can continuously toss new items onto the grill while you watch the game. You’ll be able to safely control the grill cooling off while watching the game from your tailgate. This grill is easy to carry and fits nicely in the back of a car’s trunk or SUV. The grilling surface can accommodate up to 18 burgers and the tray on the side can hold all condiments and drinks while you fix your plate!

If you’re staying home to watch all the games, you may want prefer a larger, more stationary grill. The Vision Kamado Grill allows you to smoke, bake, sear or grill. The wide temperature range on the Vision Kamado Grill is what allows you to cook in so many different styles. With this grill, you can get up on Saturday or Sunday when the first game begins and smoke ribs all day leading up to the 7 p.m. kickoff and not have to worry about the grill getting too hot or too cold. This grill maintains your desired temperature to ensure your game day meals is a winner. If you’re tailgating from home, this is the grill you want at the tailgate party! It comes in red, orange and black, so you can pick the color that best suits your patio or deck (or team).

A full day of tailgating can be tough. The YETI Rambler 20 oz. Tumbler keeps your beverage hot or cold. With its double-wall vacuum insulated stainless steel design, it will keep you hydrated throughout the day! With the Rambler, your beverage will stay hot (or cold), keeping you hydrated from the first spark of the grill in the morning to the final seconds of the game. YETI Rambler Tumblers also fit in most cup holders, making traveling with these cups a breeze.


Whether you’re tailgating near the stadium or in your own backyard, you’ll want a crisp picture on the TV screen. The TCL 65" Ultra HD Roku TV is the perfect TV for tailgating on a covered patio for the day. At an impressive 65” you can watch the game safely while manning the grill so you won't miss any action during the game.

We may not agree on the same team, but we all agree that tailgating is an important part of any football or sporting season. Check out these items to make sure you’re all set to get your tailgate set up this season.
