As I wandered the parking lot at Dover International Speedway, looking for tailgaters, I met lots of nice folks. Most had table top grills and nice free standing propane grills. I came across a man that had a new tailgating idea. It’s not a totally new idea, but it had some differences that I had not yet seen in any tailgating rig to date.

The rig dealt with sliding drawers and grills attached and an umbrella. I will not give too much more info as it is patent pending.

I did not come across any BBQ smokers, or outdoor propane deep fryers. There were no slow cookers that I saw either. There were many trailers though. Quite possible a slow cooker was set up inside one of them. I always set up my slow cooker on the table outside so that I don’t have to move it later on. All you have to do is show up with spoons and bowls. There were many people eating brats, dogs, and sausages. Some people told me about there breakfast which included sausages and eggs. It really seemed a bit boring. Maybe tomorrow things will perk up menu wise. My tailgate menu is usually off the hook. Pulled pork, chipotle tequila lamb, grilled orange chili shrimp, bacon wrapped scallops are just a few of my past tailgating menu items. I even made beef stew once. Don’t get me wrong. I’ve made brats & had cold cut sandwiches, but put a little imagination into the menu. I’ve seen tailgaters at the NHRA track, that would put these NASCAR tailgaters to shame! They not only bring charcoal & propane grills, they bring BBQ smokers & outdoor propane deep fryers.

So, we will see what tomorrow brings.
