Tailgate Food

I did a little practicing yesterday on some tailgate food and cooking techniques.

First thing to do was to fire up the smalls. I set one up indirect at about 225 degrees and the other up direct at about 300 to 350 degrees. This allowed me to move food back and forth as needed.


Second thing was to hang the beer flag:


I started with wings. They went on direct first to try to get the skin nice and crisp, then they want indirect to finish the cook and for some saucing:




Next were skins. Again, started them direct for the skin and then moved over to melt cheese:



And finally some chicken on stick. The were indirect first with smoke and then direct to finish up:



Everything turned out well and I am ready for Saturday!

    Nice demonstration of why multiple Eggs are a better thing.

    What a lineup for your tailgating party. Looks like you're good to go for Sat. Your food looks fantastic!!! I'm so excited that football season is here. :)
  • You ready for Oct. 3rd?

  • Dave....You'll be the envy of the party! ;) I am sure there will be more than one person asking questions about those "funny green things" you're cooking on! :laugh: ;) Food looks great! Have a blast! :laugh: :)
  • Dave, chicken on a stick AND a beer flag, you, sir, are the man! Marc
  • You will have people coming to see you instead of the game :woohoo: :woohoo:
  • If I was Iowa State Egger I wouldn't be worried about October 3rd, K-State and Bill "old as hell" Snyder don't have a very good team this year.

    I will be rooting for the cyclones since my Jayhawks have a bye week.

    Also, I hope the cyclones take care of business against the hawkeyes this weekend.
