It seems as though the market for one-handed eating has expanded to monstrous proportions as of late. A few years ago there were only a few products out there but it seems in just the past year we have reviewed and tried out a number of plates that hold your food and your drink all in one place allowing your free hand to eat, take a drink, shake a hand or give a high five all while...

Canopy Cooler Price Reduced

Do you remember last year when we introduced you to the Canopy Cooler? You probably thought it was an awesome way to weigh down your canopy on windy days and to also elevate your cooler off the ground. You probably didn’t buy it because you thought the price was a little high. The good news is that the price has been lowered on the Canopy Cooler and is now available via our online...

Video: Drunk Dude at Luke Bryan Tailgate Gets WWE Remix Treatment

Image of drunken ******* tailgater falling down courtesy of Deadspin Concert tailgaters tend to be a different breed. Concert tailgating is a lot more of high volume and rapid delivery of alcoholic beverages and not a lot of grilling and food consumption like you see for sporting event tailgating. Those in Pittsburgh were treated to a Luke Bryan concert and with it came a lot of...

Product Review and Giveaway – Ball Park Park’s Finest Hotdogs

Hot dogs are among the many staples of fare found at tailgate parties.   Most of us develop a taste for them as children, and carry it well into adulthood.  However as we grow older our palates usually become more diverse, and as a result some move away from the simple ketchup and mustard dog, and towards something more adventurous.   We’ve all seen the advertisements for the...

Product Review – nyne BASS

Every good tailgate has a few things in common.  You’ve usually got tasty food, fun games, and plenty of great people.  You might also have some good music just to bring everything together.  In the past you might have dragged out the old boombox or even just turned up the radio in the car as I’ve done.  However, the old methods may not be useful anymore.  Let’s face it...

Dihydromyricetin – Another Hangover Cure?

Here at Tailgating Ideas, we have tested a few hangover cures and remedies. Some have been rather effective. Others have not and we chose to not publish the results of those hangover tests here. More importantly because we did not want to give said hangover cure a bad reputation but also because we were probably too hungover to get ourselves to the keyboard to blog about it. We were...

Adjustable Bag Buddy

They say one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. But when it comes to tailgating, trash for one tailgater is pretty much trash for the rest of us tailgaters. Finding an easy and convenient way to dispose of that trash while tailgating has been the hard part. You really don’t want your tailgating space to resemble North Campus at the University of Georgia after a football...

It’s one of those food items that seems to make the world go round. In fact it’s among the worlds most traded commodities, and a multi-billion dollar industry many times over. So what does coffee have to do with tailgating? For those of us who have gotten up at the crack of dawn, or even before dawn, to head out to the lot after getting to bed late because you were preparing...

Johnsonville Big Taste Grill

440,000, yes that’s four hundred forty thousand, BTU’s. Thats the amount of propane produced power pumped out by Johnsonville’s Big Taste Grill. Combine that with enough grill space to hold 750 brats at a single time, and you’ve got the recipe for a machine built to spit out 2500 piping hot brats in an hour. This thing is a tailgaters dream. (Although I bet the cost to park...

Shot Straws

Some people love to take liquor shots while out tailgating. The purpose of liquor shots is usually not because you enjoy the taste. If that were the case you would wander around the parking lot with a scotch on the rocks. Most tailgaters taking shots are doing it for the end result of catching a buzz. Willy Wonka said it best when he said, “Candy is dandy but liquor is quicker“...

Grill Easy Lump Charcoal in a box

As tailgaters, we all seek out tailgating gear that is convenient. How else can you explain the proliferation of zipper lock plastic bags and the wide use of single use and disposable items taken to tailgate parties? Convenience and portability are two huge factors when deciding what to buy and bring tailgating. Unfortunately the way charcoal and particular, lump charcoal, is packaged...
