2019 Alabama v LSU Tailgate

It’s that time of the year – Gumbo time!  That can only mean one thing, Bama VS LSU.  As most of you know, I love this game.  I love this food.  I love this tailgate. I’ve got the tasso curing now and it will go on the smoker later this week.  I’ll start the roux […]

2019 Alabama / Arkansas Tailgate

With TN behind us, we have our first fall weather and night game in the books.  We’re still a few days out, but NOAA is calling for possible rain and a high in the upper 60’s. This weekend welcomes homecoming to the University of Alabama.  It’s always a great time catching up with old friends, […]

2019 Alabama / TN Tailgate – 3rd Saturday in October!

It’s that time of the year, fall is in the air and we’re welcoming in the Third Saturday in October!  It’s been a crazy series of games filled with some long streaks on both sides of the coin.  We’re of course hoping to extend our current streak by one more win on Saturday. This game […]

2019 Alabama / Ole Miss Tailgate

This week we welcome the Ole Miss, well I’m not sure who they are this year.  At any rate, we are excited about the first SEC game of 2019.  I’ll be out of town for this game.  Fear not, Jules, Chad and Billy will be manning the grill for this one. Mississippi is always a […]

2019 Alabama v Southern Miss Tailgate

Welcome back to Tuscaloosa Tide fans. This week we welcome the Golden Eagles of Southern Miss.  Looking back at the archives, I see we last hosted the Golden Eagles in 2014.  Like that year, cooler weather is in the forecast (it’s sad when the lower 90’s is cooler).  Unlike 2014 we have an early kick […]

2019 Alabama / New Mexico State Tailgate

Well, it’s that time of the year again.  I’ve mentioned it before, it’s always crazy when the season starts back up.  The last memories of tailgates included hearty meals, coats and fires.  The lingering memories of near 100 degree days sitting in the blazing sun are about to come to the forefront.  Is it going […]

2018 Alabama / Auburn Tailgate

Wow, what a great season up till now.  Got a few more games left, but this is the last home game and one of my favorite each time it rolls around. I say it every year but be sure to thank our hosts the Jarmon’s.  There’s a great deal of work that goes into maintaining […]

2018 Alabama / Citadel Tailgate By The Quad

Well folks, we’re in the home stretch of regular season games.  We’ve got two left in Tuscaloosa.  Last weekend was pretty chili.  So far it looks like the cool temperatures will stick around for this weekend’s game as well. This week I’ll be doing my annual trip to the Shelby County Alumni Tent.  If you’re […]

2018 Alabama / MS State Tailgate

After nearly a month off we’re back at home this week and welcoming in the Mississippi State Bulldogs.  These guys always play Bama tough and I expect this week to be no different. I’ve talked in the past about it can be tough doing a new menu for teams we play year in and year […]

Shane’s Grilled Vegetable Casserole

I was looking for a side dish to go with ribs and other grilled meats.  I decided to take a traditional casserole and grill the vegetables to give the dish an extra layer of flavor.  It turned out really well and I had a number of folks ask for the recipe.  Here you go. 2 […]
