Keys to the Tailgate: The Food

We've discussed the best games to play and what beverage people like partake in at a tailgate. But what about the food? Clearly the heart of the tailgate is the food. What food do you cook? What do you bring to cook it? Do you have any secret tailgate recipes. Choosing the right food could make or break your tailgating experience.

I know we've all walked around the parking lot and seen some guy with a huge grill and a rack of ribs that puts your hot dogs and Bubba burgers to shame. Personally, I bring my charcoal grill and get some Italian sausages, peppers, and onions going. Grab some chips or pasta salad or whatever and we're set. Another go to for me is grabbing some infused bleu cheese and bacon cheeseburger from Fresh Market here in town, it might cost a little more but those burgers are money.

So I want to hear it from everyone. What's your spread looking like at the tailgate? I know someone made a hell of a brisket at the Hogs Haven tailgate last year (liger?).
