Time for Tailgating

Time for Tailgating

The best time of the year is here — Tailgating season is in full swing as we start to gear up for college football. What’s better than sitting under the lights, eagerly waiting for your team to run out of their tunnel, all while you jump up and down decked out in fan gear? There’s only one way to prepare yourself for the intensity that this game has to offer — and it starts with the PRE GAME TAILGATE.

Never underestimate the power of BBQ, drinks, and good music. We’ve got you covered on three steps to throwing the ultimate tailgate.

1. Music sets the vibe — Having the right music playing carries the power to make or break the ambiance of any tailgate. Get on your Spotify playlist and play their “Tailgate Party” anthems for the perfect songs to get everyone excited.

2. Keep your friends excited and rowdy with some special drinks (never forget the beer). Opt for our Fuego Jungle Juice.

2 (46 fluid ounce) containers of hawaiian punch
4 quarts pineapple and orange juice blend
4 quarts pink lemonade
2 gallons apple pucker
2 bottles white rum
2 bottles of Tequila
2 bottles vodka
1 bottle Sprite
Oranges, lemons, strawberries

**Stir together apple pucker, Hawaiian punch, lemonade, Sprite, pineapple-orange juice blend, vodka, and rum in a large container.

3. The most important part of a tailgate is the BBQ! Fire up your Fuego Grill and whip up some Sriracha Spicy Chicken Wings: For The Tailgater Who Loves a Good Meal.

3 lbs chicken wings, drummettes
½ cup Sriracha hot sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon lemon


Step 1: To make the sauce, mix the Sriracha and all dry ingredients together in a bowl
Step 2: Mix the chicken wings into the sauce.
Step 3: Squeeze the lemon juice over the marinated chicken wings. Then set aside and let it sit for 30 minutes
Step 4: Light up the Fuego grill, wait until grill is hot before placing the marinated chicken wings on the grill.

*Tailgating tip: Make the sauce before arriving at your tailgate*
