From the truck to the game or the cabin without breakin’ a sweat, the Tailgater packs a full-size punch in a portable package. It weighs only 62 pounds and comes with EZ-Fold Legs for max portability. Infusing big, wood-fired taste in tight spaces, now you can grill, smoke, bake, roast, braise, and BBQ wherever and whenever you damn well please.
The Tailgater is serious fun, wood-fired business. It's perfectly portable, and fires up full-fledged flavor on the fly. Get ready to grill everywhere.
An induction fan circulates rich, hardwood smoke throughout the cook chamber for even heat and epic flavor distribution.
Load the hopper to the brim with 100% Hardwood for hours of smoking and grilling without reloading.
It fuels the fire, moving Hardwood from Hopper to Fire Pot—briskly for hot and fast, or gradually for low and slow cooking.
A hot rod at the bottom of the Fire Pot ignites the Hardwood, keeping the fire going so you can relax and drink a cold one.
Powered by a standard, household outlet, it uses 300 watts for the first four minutes and only 50 watts for the rest of the cook.
This sweet setting keeps the induction fan running for 10 minutes to lift residual ash from the fire pot and shuts off automatically.
