One of the biggest parts of any good football season is the tailgate parties. If you plan on throwing one (or many) this season, here are a few tailgating tips.
- Stay organized. Used a toolbox to keep all of your party supplies organized. It can include things like grill tools, wooden skewers, condiments and sauces, sunscreen, a first aid kit, a mini flashlight, hand sanitizer, and other items.
- Pack a cooler. Of course you want to bring a cooler for your food, but knowing how to properly pack one can make a big difference. Make sure all containers are water tight. Put heavy bottles and cans on the bottom and add a layer of ice, pushing pieces in any spaces. Chill everything beforehand to make the ice last longer. Place other bags and containers on top of the drinks and add more ice. Pack it full to avoid pockets of warm air.
- Prepare early. Do as much preparation the day before as you can. For example, putting food on kebabs, shaping burgers, slicing veggies, etc.
- Skip the plates. To make clean up easier, only serve foods that can be eaten with your hands. Burgers and kebobs are a good choice, but you can also do walking tacos.
