It’s almost football season, so we’re perfecting our favorite tailgating and homegating recipes! Whether you like hamburgers, wings, brats, ribs or something cooked with beer, we have everything you’ll need for the perfect tailgate party. We always like inviting friends to join our tailgates because the EGG is about community and having fun, so make sure if you’re inviting company you make extra - the food will be gone before you know it!

    Thanks Paqman - I will look at going there next time.

    Thanks Mdozier - only challenge was the drip pan dried out sometime during the cook - not sure if this makes a difference or not.
