Chicken Wings are great, but smoked chicken wings are better. This is by far my most requested meal by friends and family.
Pulled pork is a great tailgate party recipe. It’s a versatile cut of meat, and people absolutely devour it.
Similar to pulled pork, shredded beef is versatile and delicious. Serve it with corn tortillas and watch the meat disappear.
Baby Back ribs are great tailgate food. They’re easy to serve, and you can eat them with one hand…
One of my favorite things to make on a smoker. Chicken Thighs are so damn tasty, and the perfect simple tailgate party recipe.
If you haven’t tried pork belly burnt ends yet, you’re missing out.
They’re called poor man’s burnt ends, but the flavor is rich and delicious.
Everything is better wrapped in bacon.
If the temps have dropped, this hearty chili is just what you need.
Don’t let their simplicity fool ya. If you serve these at your next tailgate party, they won’t last long.
Burgers are better when they are stuffed with mushrooms and swiss cheese.
Meatballs stuffed with cheese and wrapped in bacon. What else needs to be said?
