Tailgating Recipes for the Grill

Throw these meats and veggies on the grill for an extra-ordinary tailgating feast that requires little fuss.

It’s time to get fired up about football season! Whether you’re cooking with a backyard grill or smoker, a tricked-out tailgating rig, or on a portable grill in a stadium parking lot, we have tailgate grilling recipes for every setting. These dishes are designed to please and feed a hungry crowd without too much fuss that will distract you from the game. If you’re looking for a new way to make chicken on the grill, try our Chili-Barbecued Chicken, Grilled Herbed Drumettes with White Barbecue Sauce, or Honey Barbecue Chicken. In the mood for burgers? Impress everyone with our Dixie Beef Burgers, topped with tangy Banana Pepper Spread and Chowchow Spread. For something deliciously different, try fish on the grill—we have a winning recipe for Cumin-Dusted Catfish Sandwiches. And don’t forget the side dishes! We have Grilled Potato Salad, Vegetable Kabobs, Grilled Corn, and more creative sides for tailgating that can be made on the grill.
