An Irish Tailgate

Sunday, September 19, 2010 @ 06:09 AM

I went to an outdoor Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day party at our local fire department yesterday. Technically, it was just a big Irish tailgate party.

This was the most stock pots & outdoor propane cookers  (more or less outdoor propane deep fryer kits) I’ve ever seen in one place at one time.

There was so much corned beef & cabbage & potatoes cooking. They also had a grill for hot dogs, burgers, & grilled corn. It was a well rounded party. Good food, good music & good beer.

The party started out slow, due to iffy weather. It never rained and the crowds finally showed. That would have been a lot of leftover corned beef if it had rained. The whole fire department would have been eating Rubens & corned beef hash all week.

It was interesting to watch theses tailgate cooks at work. There was certainly something to be learned. My tailgate party is usually on a smaller scale, but it is nice to know that I have a place to go for advise should I need to.
