    I've confirmed that they will allow us into the football parking lots as early as 8:00 AM so that people can come and park for the football game and go to both the basketball and football games. So that's good. Here's the issue - Assuming the basketball game gets done at around Noon, that gives us 3 hours or so for tailgating. That's not bad, but jambalaya takes a full hour and a half to actually cook. That doesn't leave enough time, and frankly, I'd rather not be pressed to leave the basketball game to run over to the lot and fire up the jambalaya pot.

    So, some ideas as to how to pull off a tailgate that will be enjoyed by all would be appreciated. Maybe have 3-4 people get some chicken wings or sandwiches? Burritos? I'm open to suggestions. Ever since I saw the two games on the same day, I've been trying figure out how to make this work.

    Paleo-raw food tailgate? No cooking or messy cleanup.

    Burritos could really work. What about throwing on some flanks for carne asada and then putting tortillas out?

    Flank is very hard to cook properly. Get some trip tip and slice thin

    Understand this: I'm not cooking flank steak for the burritos. If somebody else wants to do that, fine. I'm planning on pre-making up some seasoned ground beef and assigning folks to bring stuff like cheese, salsa, tortillas, etc.

    This will probably not play out well- especially since nobody has ofificially invited me to attend, but in the absence of a big fat, thick, meat filed burrito, I'd like a nice fat juicy sausage dripping hotness and creamy goodness in my mouth for the tailgate.

    Thanks in advance,

    flukes

    Sounds excited. => Invited.


    I've never been filed by meat before. Does it hurt?

    Anyone willing to change their handle to sausage buff? Flukes had burrito last time and now wants something different.

    I'm not changing my name to Taco Palazzo. My screen name is sacred.
