You’ve heard of.09 Rockin’ the Beer Gut..we’re going to Deep Fry The 09 Tailgate.

Doesn’t matter whether you’re going to the football game, a NASCAR race, or The Kentucky Derby. Tailgating is an American obsession, and we’re darn proud of it. We like to eat, drink, and be merry at our sports functions and concerts. Ask a Jimmy Buffett fan if he’s got a gas powered blender in the car!

Seeing as deep frying is an American obsession as well, we’re going to deep fry the tailgate.

You don’t just have to take a grill to the parking lot. Deep fryers run on propane too. There are outdoor propane deep fryers that are small enough for just a few friends, or large enough to supply the biggest tailgate party around. You can even use your turkey fryer at a tailgate. Not only do they deep fry turkeys and other goodies, they are versatile enough to steam and boil with as well. You can make chili one weekend, steam lobster, corn & clams the next, and deep fry Buffalo wings the week after that. Sounds like a well rounded tailgate cooker to me.

Nothing against grilling and barbecuing, but you can deep fry just about anything. There are recipes for deep fried ribs, or even a whole roast beef. You can fry 3 chickens at a time in a turkey fryer. Get out there and deep fry! Beer, wings, and football are a natural combination. You can add all sorts of great stuff to your tailgate menu. French fries, onion rings, okra, you can even have a catfish fry.

If you feel that safety is an issue using a conventional turkey fryer, get yourself a Cajun Fryer. They are mobile, propane fired, and the flame goes through the oil in a contained tube. It will heat your oil sufficiently to fry anything. If any oil spillage should occur, it will happen at the front of the unit. Any flame is at the back of the unit. Therefore no oil & flame should ever come in contact. When you’re done cooking and ready for the game, if there isn’t time to cool the oil, there are ways around that. Just come prepared with a metal Gerry can, and have a radiator hose adapted with an end to connect to your oil release valve. Drain your oil, store the hot canĀ  somewhere that won’t be harmful to anyone still wandering the lot.Your fryer will cool down quicker too.

So, let’s get out there and deep fry the tailgate!
