Garlic Bread: Buy a few loafs of bread from the grocery store, cut them in half, spread the inside face with butter and sprinkle some garlic on. Throw the garlic bread on the grill for a few minutes so it turns crunchy. After, put the bread back together and start slicing it.

Set out sides for the corn like butter, hot sauce, cilantro, and Parmesan. Trust us, they wont be able to refuse. Be sure you get a large bulk of corn, they’ll go quickly
Barbecue chicken and tri-tip: The meat is the most important component of a tailgate. At least it is to us. Be sure you always have more meat. It’s better to have extra than to run out.
