8 Tailgaiting Tips Every Guy Should Know this Football Season

8 Tailgaiting Tips Every Guy Should Know this Football Season

Let the games begin! It’s officially football season and you can kick off the season with a bang with these ingenious tailgaiting tips every guy needs to know. From etiquette tips to bringing along the right foods for your gathering around the tailgait, we’ve got you covered. 

Packing Essentials.    If you have a truck or SUV, bring along your tool box and fill it with these essentials including: BBQ tools, wipes (a package of wipes goes a long way), a roll of paper towels, trash bags, Ziplocs, sunscreen, a standard first aid kit, and any seasonings and condiments that don’t need refridgeration. 

Prep Ahead.     Make your burger patties, chicken, or skewer your meats and veggies the night before and place them in a sealed container or Tupperware. If you plan on having toppings for your meats, slice those tomatoes, lettuce and onions early as well. 

Label your Coolers.      Meats or condiments not stored at the right temps could make everyone sick and the last thing you want is diarreah with only portalets around. Your cooler should be at 40 degrees Farenheit to prevent the meat from spoiling and don’t forget other condiments like mayo. Naturally, you will be icing down some beers as well. Label your coolers so that your meats are not exposed over and over again from fellow tailgaters looking for a cold beer or soda. 

Team Spirit.      We hope you are representing with team with a tent but you can dominate your tailgate with Tail Titan’s illuminated trail hitch. Tail Titan’s illuminated trailer hitches means you can tailgait even when you are not tailgaiting. Choose from officially-licensed NFL and NCAA teams.

Fire it Up:     If you plan on using coal to grill out bring along a metal receptacle where you can safely dispose of hot coals. NEVER leave a grill unattended and make sure to properly extinguish your grills. 

Plastic Tubs are your Friend.     Not only can you pack up non-refridgerated items in a large storage container but items such as disposable plates, cutlery and those Solo cups can be stored safely. You can also use a storage container to return any non-disposable plates with you. 

Jumper Cables.      Nobody wants to be stuck in the parking lot for good. Always a good idea to bring these along—you never know. 

Positioning your Grill.      Grilling out while tailgaiting is a right of passage so be sure to position your grill based on elements such as wind direction.
