Ducks have four home games in a row this year at the start of the season. Several are late afternoon starts, lots of time for tailgating and good times. Right now I am planning different main foods for each tailgate.
1. Pulled Pork - Will do it ahead of time probably and freeze reheat the morning of the tailgate, serve with potato buns, probably have some good slaw as a side.
2. Smoked Brisket - Will do some low and slow brisket, time it to come off early on game day, slice and put in Cambro's for the trip to the stadium. Serve with some of my great beans/burnt ends.
3. Paella - will do a Northwest market paella, fresh stuff from the farmers market, sausage and smoked chicken breasts, will cut the chicken into chunks. All ingrediants will be cut up and into zip locks, broth will be heated up and put into a large themal container for trip to stadium. Will do the paella in the parking lot.
4. Wine and Cheese tasting - will do this on a early start game, flight of six great Oregon Pinot Noir's along with four good cheeses, sliced pears, nuts, honey comb, grapes and maybe some good sliced meats.
Beverages will include Rogue and Hop Valley Micro's, assortment of Oregon PN's, 18 year old scotch, crown reserve, bottled water and assorted soda's.
What is everyone else doing?
