It’s that time of the year folks, that’s right it’s the 3rd Saturday in October. Though it’s really the fourth. Alabama is coming off another great road victory. So why don’t you come join us for a tailgate?
I’ve done a few different things through the years. Sometimes it was Jack Daniels based dishes, sometimes it was all things Orange (orange curry chicken anyone?) and sometimes it was just Oktoberfest themed.
This time around I’m going to combine a little bit of each of these. In honor of Ole Smokey we’re going to fire the smoker up and go from there. Each of these dishes pair well with AlabamaTailgate.com’s beer of choice, Cahaba Brewing’s Cahaba Blonde. If you can’t make a tailgate, they are distributed throughout Birmingham.
Here’s what I’m thinking:
- Jack Daniels Slushies
- Smoked Chicken Quarters with Jack Daniels BBQ Sauce
- Smoked Beef Brisket
- Smoked Apples and Pear Slaw
- Grilled Potato Salad with Bacon Vinaigrette
- Green Beans with Smoky Bacon
With a 2:30 kickoff, I plan on having everything off the grill around 12:30.
