Welcome!

We are over halfway through the football season and man oh man, what a year so far. We’ve had some crazy upsets, awesome plays, and first and foremost, some kick butt tailgating! Just in the past few months, we’ve met hundreds of hospitable Superfans and some TRUE tailgaters. We’ve been busy here at Inside Tailgating since the beginning of the season, but not too busy to put together an excellent issue for all of you die-hard tailgating fans out there! In this issue we’ll touch on topics ranging from Beer (mmm…beeeerrr), to tasty tailgate recipes, featured celebrity chefs, and even automobile accessories to pimp your tailgate ride. We also have a Q and A with the Founder of Fans Against Violence (F.A.V.) that you should make a point to check out!

The 2013 football season might be winding down but there is still a lot of tailgating left to do, so get out there while you can! If your team doesn’t make it to the postseason, we’re sure that you’ll have a ton of fun watching all of the action during your homegating parties! This issue has a wide range of topics and products to peruse so, in the meantime, sit back in your fold up chair, crank up your firepit, slip on the snuggy that you got for Christmas last year, and read through this issue. We hope this issue will give you some inspiration for your next tailgate or homegate party! Enjoy the issue,

New and Innovative Grills that Will Make You the MVP of the Tailgate

on the Block

rills make a statement about a tailgater’s personality. If you are like me and have multiple personalities, you need multiple grills for tailgating. For this issue we are covering a lot of personalities by featuring some awesome new grills with new shapes, features and functionalities…one of these is bound to be a fit for you or at least one of your personalities.

Hot Box Grill

The name speaks for itself…it is a portable grill in the shape of a box. What the name doesn’t tell you is that this 370 square inch charcoal grill that can cook a 15 pound turkey, over 20 hamburgers, or smoke 20 pounds of pork butt. A great feature for this grill is that it can fold up and be stored in two tote bags. When in tote bags, it will take up less cubic feet of storage than grills half its size. The set-up and break-down process takes less than five minutes. When fully assembled, this grill is 18” x 24” and can easily fit on any table top and feed a party of 10 or more with no problem. The Hot Box is made of heavy duty galvanized steel and features three charcoal grates and two different levels for placement giving the grillmaster a lot of flexibility to show off some skills. If that fails to impress people, stand on it, as long as you are less than 400 pounds, it will support you. The Hot Box is made in the USA with a starting price of $339. For more information check out www.hotboxgrills.com.

AUT ACCESSORIES

our vehicle is an essential part of your tailgate. It can act as not only the means by which you get to the game, but it’s also your party hub for the day’s pre and post-game festivities. When it comes to tailgating vehicles, we’ve seen everything from decked-out old school buses to pimped-out hoopties. But, chances are, you don’t have the money or the time to customize your vehicle the way that some people do. Don’t think for one second that you can’t make your vehicle stand out in terms of being a fan or a dedicated tailgater. Here at Inside Tailgating, we see tons of awesome products that make tailgating a lot easier for the average tailgater. So we have collected a few of items that can turn your vehicle into an efficient, tailgater-friendly mobile party fan-wagon. By: “Gameday” Steve Long, InsideTailgating.com

PowerDecal:

For many die-hard fans, stickers and magnets just ain’t gonna cut it. They have to show their pride AT NIGHT too! PowerDecal is a definite upgrade from your average run-of-the-mill sticker, magnet, or window cling. Powered by three standard AA Alkaline batteries (that are included), the PowerDecal shines while you are rollin’ home from the game. If you are worried about the batteries wearing down, this modern display of pride uses light sensors to turn itself on and off when the sun does up and down. To attach, it is easily mounted on the inside of your vehicle’s window, and with a flip of a switch, you have an illuminated sign that shows off your team spirit. Ranging from 24.99-29.99, this high-powered decal was featured on ABC’s Shark Tank, and is now making a splash into tailgating lots across the country. Find your favorite NFL, NCAA, MLB, NBA and NASCAR team logos (and even custom logos too) at www.PowerDecal.com.

YOU WANT ON YOUR

TAILGATE TEAM aving won a few national grilling titles and labels in the American tailgate market the past half-decade, I’ve been featured at the Pro and College Football Hall of Fame, Fox, NBC, as well as in national magazines and newspapers. Has it been an experience to cherish? You bet it has! I wouldn’t have ever traded that for a date with Jennifer Aniston...well…maybe! I can say though, that these experiences have led directly to the most rewarding part of tailgate travels. And that has been the opportunity to forge some great relationships with not just hundreds of tailgate friends and clubs, but many celebrity and notarized chefs as well. What I derive the most from these relationships is the camaraderie amongst them, and the willingness to share both knowledge and passion on a continuum that continues to fuel me day by day. I recently sat down with 4 iconic tailgating chefs to discuss what fuels their passion for the tailgate cuisine. These four chefs are better people than they are chefs. They bring their own passionate flare to the world of food and tailgating. Inside Tailgating is proud to feature a few of their succulent recipes for your next gameday feast! We are also happy to share some exciting conversations with these folks to give our readers a quick look into their passion for food, culinary arts, all things tailgating, and its marriage to sports.
