Joe stopped by to give us his die-hard list of "Tailgating Must-Haves". He’s totally on target here folks so make sure when you pack up your mini-grill to take to the games this year that you also note the rest of the items on this list.
Bull’s-Eye Barbecue Sauce:
Barbecue sauce is the new ketchup! Bull’s-Eye uses high quality ingredients and has no high fructose corn syrup, so I think it’s the best bottled sauce on grocery store shelves. No one will know that it’s not your secret recipe.
It may seem silly, but toilet paper is one of the most important pieces of equipment for a tailgate. Port-o-lets never have enough toilet paper, so make sure you’re always prepared when nature calls.
Portable Power Station:
After an entire day of partying in the parking lot, you don’t want to be left in the dark with a dead battery after the game.
Tailgating check list:
Nothing is worse than someone forgetting ice for the cooler, charcoal for the grill or tickets for the game. A check list is a great way to keep organized and to ensure that you’ve packed everything. And it’s free!
They’re not as fancy as the barbecue sets that you can find in stores, but they work the best and will stand up to the elements to make it through many tailgating seasons. Tools that I like include a Stainless Steel flexible Spatula and Stainless Steel Tongs.
Waterproof Oven Mitt:
This oven mitt is finished with a special coating that keeps liquids and steam from penetrating the fabric and seams, so it prevents steam, water and grease burns. It also has extra length to protect your forearm and is dishwasher safe for easy clean up.
Food Storage Cereal Dispenser:
With so many people visiting your tailgate, a cereal dispenser is a great way to make sure that dirty hands don’t get into the peanuts or trail mix. The airtight container will also keep food nice and fresh.
American Red Cross Family First Aid Kit:
Whether there’s a burn at the grill or rogue football that bounces off a tailgater’s head, having a first aid kit on hand is always a must.
This is the world’s smallest and thinnest 10 megapixel camera.You can slide it into a pocket so that it’s always on hand and it also has a YouTube mode, which allows you to record video and easily share memories with your new tailgating friends.
Tundra Fire Extinguishing Spray:
To ensure that your tailgate doesn’t border on scorching, keep this extinguishing spray on hand to put out any flames and to keep your guests in the clear. It’s powerful and easy to use, just point and spray.
