TAILGATING TIPS

Break it Down
Use an empty beer box as a makeshift cutting board.

Bag It
Marinate the meat in a resealable plastic bag, then just pack the bag in the cooler when you leave for the game.

Cool It
When the party's over, pour the water from your cooler over the grill to cool off the hot coals.
