    Easy low cost tailgate food

    Ok guys.. looking for those of you that cook alot for ideas on something different for Tailgating. Looking for something different than hotdogs, hamburgers,chicken tenders or sausages.

    This is a morning tailgate so we will have bacon on the grill but lookin for something original to do this Saturday. Usually I get packs of chicken strips and marinate them a day or so in whatever and they are pretty good but I'm wanting something different.

    If you give suggestions please give recipes!

    Caribbean style chicken..can use thighs, wings, legs...or cut some breast on bone into thirds.

    Sirloin strips are always excellent grilling beef, great for marinades

    Corn on the cob...leave husks on, remove some of the silk, pre-seasoned butter

    Grilled veggies such as sliced squash, sliced taters, asparagus, sliced bell peppers

    Pork Tenderloin sliced, marinaded. Tenderloin not from shoulder.

    Grilled pineapple rings, mango

    I'm a big fan of Caribbean style cooking....I use a base of jerk paste from either Walkers Wood, or Graces.

    Add to that...some pineapple juice, or mango juice, and/or lime juice. Fresh chopped cilantro 'n garlic. Soak at least overnight for best effects. Great combo for beef or pork or chicken or even seafood.

    You can usually get the "fresh frozen" shimp that are just fine and low cost.


    I like the Beer can whole chicken. Get a 22 oz of your favorite beer, add your favorite dry rub to the chix, open beer can, put chix on can and cook 45-60 minutes.
    Now, Hank, touch your throat. That tube you feel is your trachea. Think of it as your handle. That thing your thumb is on is your carotid artery. Think of it as your button. I want you to grab the handle, push the button.

    What I learned with that is that punching a couple extra holes in the top of the beer is key. Also you may as well ad some spice to the beer

    You guys just aren't right!
    Although I have been expecting to see posts like- tube steak (smothered in underwear), Georgia pork rolls (swinging high in the smokehouse)

    Best option- Catering...

    Also green onions are great on the grill, just take a couple minutes and you can graze on them while everything else is cooking

    Turkey burgers with roasted peppers (the roasted peppers is key IMO) are mighty tasty

    A pot of express chili is good, cheap, and great if its cool outside. I'll look for the recipe for you.
