    Let's have a tailgate party

    For a little something to do let's throw out some tailgate recipes. Rules are anything that can be made at home and brought to the party or anything that can be made on site using basic tools like knife, fork, spoon and mixing bowl. We will have a Webber Smoky Mountain Cooker (water smoker), a Webber Kettle grill and a Webber Summit Gold B4 gas grill. with one side burner, on site for cooking on site. Bring out your best and post the recipes.

    Catagories are:
    Snack food and appetizers includes dips, finger food and snacks
    Main dishes which include everything from pulled pork, steaks, chili, burgers, chickens and sausages.
    Side dishes
    Deserts
    Drinks

    Let's give it a month and see what kind of tidefans tailgating with the tide cookbook we can come up with.

Brown flour in oil to make a roux (make sure oil is hot first, then add flour and STIR CONSTANTLY so that the roux does not burn. When it is the consistency you like, and dark brown add to gumbo mixture and let cook about 30 minutes. Remove from heat and sprinkle about 2 tablespoon's of FILE on top.

    Gumbo is going to fall in the catagory of main dish along with chili.

Stir in eggs, one at a time, stirring well after each addition.

    Cake: In a saucepan, boil oleo, water and cocoa for 2 minutes. In a small bowl, beat eggs, buttermilk, baking soda, vanilla, and vinegar. Add dry ingredients and mix well. Add hot mixture and mix thoroughly. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes in a jellyroll pan or long cookie sheet(about an inch deep pan is the best). Batter should be thin. Ice while hot.

    Damn. You beat me to my favorite recipe. Except I always include a couple of bottles of water, one that I carry into the stadium, and the other for the ride home. A 32-oz jug of Gatorade in place of water is recommended for September afternoon post-game consumption.

    And one more thing about your 45 minute chill time. Although it is best to chill as long as possible, canned beverages will chill much quicker than people expect. After many experiments with cooler technology, I have discovered that if you take a 12-pack of room-temp canned adult beverages, place them in a cooler, and dump one standard 8 lb bag of ice found at most convienence stores on top, your beers will be cold and drinkable in 8 minutes. That's right--EIGHT minutes. And I'm not talking about them being a bit cold. They will be very cold. Nothing wrong with having them marinate longer, but don't sit around for thirty minutes waiting for a beer when they will be done in 8 minutes. I have conducted this experminent many times under variuos conditions, and can assure you of the results.
