Nothing beats a good bratwurst. Add the kraut, potato salad, pretzels, even kielbasa, etc... in October, A miniOktoberfest/tailgater!

Other fare for non-Oktoberfest tailgaters: Bacon wrapped shrimp, bacon wrapped boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliders, roasted red cajun taters, Raichlin's BBQ onions, tater bombs, atomic buffalo turds, any sort of kabobs, planked fish, marinated salmon fillets, custom pizza, spareribs.

Maybe get a rotisserie for your grill (if you don't already have one) and do whole chicken or cornish game hens.
Here's a link to the tater bomb recipe(s)/method:


You could even grill up lobster or portobello mushrooms

That said, I know some Cheese Heads who can out tailgate anybody. They're fun to hang out with. And who knows how scientific the "study" was; it very well could have been pulled out of the author's tuchus. So take my "king of tailgating" comment above with a rather large portion of "tongue in cheek".
Aw, we're just trash talkin ya a little bit!

This weekend went nicely. Made White Bean Chicken Chili ahead of time and just reheated on the grill.

There are a few strips of green grass along the sides of the parking lot where we set up the table and grill (Don't have a shelter, but rely on the grace of God to give us good weather, which has has provided thus far.)

My plan for next game might be bacon wrapped shrimp skewers. The best thing about these (besides eating them, obviously) is that they create a generous portion of aromatic smoke, that will probably drive all the other tailgaters crazy.

This week our neighbors made THICK juicy burgers and reheated what looked like pork tenderloins with some drizzle from their marinade.

Oh, and I'm planning on bringing a small football to throw with the kid. She spent the whole time reading some book called "Maximum Ride" (I think). I think she would enjoy some NERF time.

Haha I couldn't resist pointing that out. Seems like its all region preference. The south is known for BBQ and love of football but not to say anyone can't get the job done. For me its about who I am there with.

Also, the big green egg cooks the best meat in my opinion.

I've done everything from sausages, ABT's, chili/soup (crock pots can usually run overnight and then be brought part and parcel to the tailgate and stay plenty-hot), pulled pork, brisket, salmon, to quesadilla bars and we have done breakfasts with egg mcmuffin style sammiches, pancakes, eggs and bacon. Forgetting a lot of trial and error menu items, I am sure.

Whatever you decide to bring, my tips are:

1) It is all prepped and ready to go, you don't have to do anything day-of but cook and/or set the goodies out and be done.
2) Know your audience and the weather and prepare accordingly... some foods will work better in colder weather than warm or a windy day will make your life hell (chili/soup vs something lighter when it is hot)
3) If you want to converse and enjoy yourself more, don't do something that requires you to cook continuously with a lot of your attention focused on it. Items that might burn easily if you turn away and get caught up in conversation for an extra minute or 2 are not recommended.
4) Easy cleanup and loading back in the car.

It's pretty hard to feck up a tailgate, IMO.

The BBQ Pit Boys also did stuffed pit bbq'd lobster & portobella caps stuffed with burgers mixed up with different things with cheese melted over them.

Cowboy Stew

Baked Beans
Bacon
Hot dogs
Ground beef (or turkey)
Cook the beef and bacon and cut into small pieces
Add cut up hot dogs, some beer, ketchup, mustard, hot sauce and brown sugar to taste

So bad for you, but so good! Eat with cornbread
