Traeger Tailgating Tips

Posted by Mary M. on September 4, 2013

The glorious days of football are back. Tailgating with your Traeger combines everything you love about football with all of the tasty smoke and flavor that you love about your Traeger. So we figured we'd give you some tailgating tips and pointers to help you keep those face-painted masses full and satisfied.


Avoid the unexpected hurdles by doing your prep not just one day, but two days ahead. Pre-chop those vegetables, marinate that meat, make any sauces or mixes and pre-cook as much as you can before taking to the tailgating field.

2. K.I.S.S. - Keep It Simple, Stupid
Tailgating is not the time to show off your souffle or seared foie gras prowess. Don't limit your creativity, but make it easier on yourself and don't over-complicate the food. Stick with dishes that require minimal tools to eat and for which you can do most of the prep and even some of the cooking at home.

With all of the food and games you've got packed in your truck for tailgating, don't forget to make room for the right tools. You've got your Traeger in there, of course. Make sure you also bring your High Efficiency Power Converter to give your Traeger some juice or the PTG - our handy portable Traeger, which was made to be easily packed up and taken to the football stadium.

The early bird gets the worm; so to get that prime parking space you've got to show up early (about 3 to 4 hours before the game starts). Allow plenty of time to set up and relax, hang out and play some games. Don't forget that you'll also need to plan for enough time to pack everything up as well.

If you can, get a space next to an open grassy area so you'll have plenty of room to Traeger as well as throw around a pigskin. And if you can get a spot with some shade, even better. (If you're a tailgating newbie, you may even want to go scout out the area a couple of days in advance.) If you do end up with close tailgating neighbors, make friends with them. Luckily, the Traeger has a natural way of doing that.

Don't forget to bring a folding table or something that allows you a work surface to lay out and assemble all the eats. Designate one area with all of your tools and ingredients and another area for serving the food that is ready to be devoured. It will make the grilling and the serving a whole lot easier.

Sometimes the weatherman gets it wrong. (Shocking, we know.) Dress weather-appropriate but also bring some extra jackets, umbrellas and ponchos just in case. Also, be prepared to cover or anchor down your food in case the skies start to look gray or wind picks up.

Thoroughly wrap up and bag any leftover food so that when you come back after the game your car doesn't smell like a food bomb. (Why not use aluminum pans for cooking and make your clean up at home significantly easier too?) Be a courteous tailgater and clean up and leave the space like you found it. To be safe, look up the policies for your tailgating site to ensure you keep to their rules.

Now get to Traeger Tailgatin'!

The professional web promotion Company can really do more than just getting high rankings for your website.
