Football season is in high gear and whether you are cheering on an NFL, College or High School team, there's nothing like tailgating to get you and your family psyched about the big game. To help make your next pre-game party a hit, we've got a fun Tackling Tailgating with Pork giveaway.
The National Pork Board and chef Michael Symon have created tailgating tips and recipes (including my favorite '?? the '??Porky Burger'?) which can be found here: Tackle Tailgating with Pork.
We love this tip:
The two hour rule: Whether you'??re tailgating in the parking lot or at a backyard barbecue, make sure the food is ready at least two hours before the game. This will allow for plenty of time to eat up and clean up before kickoff. No one wants to be doing dishes at kickoff or taking a plate for the walk to the stadium.
And don't miss out on Micheal's recipes. Take a look at the Porky Burger (picture shown--and you may not go back to red meat again!). Now let's talk about the giveaway! We'??ve put together tailgating goodies for you including:
* Gift card to a local retailer (to purchase the pork of course!)
* Grilling utensils
* An '??I Heart Pork'? apron
* Digital Thermometer
* Autographed copy of Michael Symon'??s Live to Cook
