Recently Grillocracy's master griller Clint Cantwell helped kick off tailgating season with some great game day eats on HLN's "The Daily Share" (be sure to check out the entire clip here!).
Among the various recipes and tips featured on HLN are:
A BURGER SLIDER BAR. Allow your guests to create their own custom sliders by offering up a variety of different toppings, buns, and condiments. Click here for some great burger bar topping ideas.
A SIGNATURE BBQ SAUCE. Sure you can make your own barbecue sauce from scratch but it can take a lot of time and ingredients to get it just right. Instead, use a store bought sauce such as KC Masterpiece Original as a base and make it your own by adding dried spices like chipotle powder, honey, jellies/jams, liquid butter (for richness), fruit juices, and more.
SMOKED BACON WRAPPED WINGS. Buffalo wings are great but smoked wings wrapped in bacon are on a whole other level. For the complete recipe, click here.
