Can You Throw the Ultimate Tailgate?

November 4, 2011
What are you cooking up for your next tailgate?

Football season is in full swing, and there is no better way to prepare to watch your favorite team take the field than throwing a tailgate party with your closest friends.

Throwing the ultimate tailgate is an art form – not only do you need to have the ideal spot, but also cold Harpoon beers in the cooler and mouth-watering snacks that will hold you over for the entire game. We all know that one person who makes the best game-day dips, wings, pots of chili and everything in between… and the burning questions has always been, how do they make it?!

Well, for those who have the affinity for making any tailgate a culinary experience, make sure you don’t miss out on the best contest of the football season – Football Nation’s first-ever “Tailgate Recipe of the Year Contest.”

That’s right.

Submit your most creative and mouth-watering recipes for a chance to win a party package for 10, with prizes from Whole Foods, Mr. Bar-B-Q and Harpoon Brewery,  just in time for you to enjoy the biggest football game of the year on February 5th! is the hub of passionate, deeply engaged NFL, college and fantasy football fans, which means these fans are constantly thinking of football, tailgating, food and beer,” said Andrew Miller, the founder and president of Football Nation.

After deciding on your show-stopping recipe, post the dish online for your chance to win.  Send your friends and family your recipe’s link from the contest page so they can vote for your meal.

We’re a fan of anything cooked with beer, as you may remember from the BBQ chicken recipe that Jaime Schier shared with us.

Feeling inspired? Grab a Harpoon IPA and fire up those grills – it’s football time!
