Tailgating rigs

    I don't know if anyone has done this before but.... since football (tailgating) season is upon us I thought It would be fun to see what some of the best tailgating rigs in the country were.  I'm talking grills, smokers, trailers, whatever.

    I don't have a picture but a couple years back I found an old Sam Adams keg, cut a quarter off of the side for a lid and mounted it horizontally.  Fits in the receiver hitch on my pickup.  Can't smoke with it but it grills like a mother!

    When we tailgate at our Rams home games and a smoked meat has been requested I usually just take care of it at home and then finish it up with the resting process at the lot.  So far the only things we would even be able to do at the lot is chickens and ribs but our crew typically wants the pulled pork or brisket which certainly needs to be done at home.

    More and more I am hearing about wood and charcoal fires being banned at tailgate sites.  LSU for one has banned any open flame burning since a unattended grill burnt down a building.  Oh my!

    And let's not forget that someone, somewhere along the line will leave a charcoal fire going in a smaller grill and slide it under their car when they head to the stadium!  [​IMG]   I personally like the smaller gas grills because they cool down so much quicker and you can always load them back in the trailer/vehicle after 30 minutes or so.  The lot we are in does still allow for charcoal grills but the guy we tailgate with are all pretty good about dousing them before they ever leave the lot!
