Tips for tailgating this season



Published: Wed, August 28, 2013 @ 12:00 a.m.

Family Features

Grilled food is good anywhere for any occasion. Whether you’re tailgating in the stadium parking lot or watching the game in your own backyard with family and friends, get ready to take your grill skills to the gridiron.

While you might not be in the running for MVP this season, everyone has a shot at being Tailgater of the Year.

Try these tips from world champion pitmaster Chris Lilly to tailgate like a pro this season:

Score an Early First Down: Marinate meat before guests arrive. Try KC Masterpiece marinades, such as Santa Fe Picante, which gives a real kick to meat, seafood and vegetables. It can add flavor to meat in as little as 30 minutes. Also, to be confident your grill will be ready to cook in about 10 minutes, try Kingsford Match Light charcoal.

Avoid Turnovers: Frequent flipping of items on the grill can dry out the food. Instead, let food brown before turning to develop a flavorful crust, which is the signature of great grilling. When it’s time to flip, use tongs or a spatula in place of forks, which pierce food and release juices.

Don’t call in the second string: One of the best parts about tailgating at home is that you own the “concession stand.” You wouldn’t call the deliveryman from the stadium, so make sure you follow the same rule when watching the game at home. Fire up your grill to experience the sights, sounds and smells of the stadium right in your own backyard.
