Tailgating has become a serious hobby not only for football fans but also for racing fans, baseball fans, and the fans of just about any other stadium event you can think of. It’s a lot of fun to arrive early and party with your friends and fellow fans while getting in the right frame of mind for the game. With all of the interest has come a lot of great gear to make the tailgater’s experience comfortable, fun, and convenient. Of course, tailgating is primarily about the food and that’s ok with me. But as the author of The NFL Gameday Cookbook, I like to see tailgaters go beyond simply grilling some brats, so I’ve included a giant and powerful wok kit on my list. It’s really a great item for a big stir-fry. I’ve also included a little oven that runs on a one pound propane tank and can cook a cake or a pan of lasagna anywhere. Your guests will need to be comfortable while they prepare for the game and The Tailgate Party Trailer is at the top of the list for that. If you’d like something a little simpler the Lafuma Recliners are a favorite of mine. No matter whom you’re rooting for, I predict your tailgate parties are about to get better when you get some of the best gear.
