Gameday comes with a lot of shared traditions. One of the best is getting together with friends, family, and other fans to have a tailgate. Whether you host a homegate in your backyard or arrive first thing in the morning at the stadium, you need the right tailgating accessories. Inside Tailgate Magazine features some of the newest and best tailgating gear. We offer reviews, insider tips, and buying guides. To help you enjoy the tailgating tradition, here are some of our favorite tailgating accessories.
Coleman Roadtrip LX
When it comes to picking a tailgating grill, portability is everything. You need something easy to transport, that also is large enough to grill everything from skewers to a full rack of ribs. Enter the Coleman Roadtrip LX. Initially designed for camping, this stylish portable grill is ideal for tailgating. It has continually topped our lists of the best tailgating grills. This propane grill folds up for easy portability, has variable heat control on two burners, and has two pop-out workspaces. It is a definite must for any tailgating.
There’s a lot of awesome coolers on the market, but none cooler than the Coolbox. This grill is loaded with features. This cooler does it all! It has Bluetooth speakers, can charge two phones at once, and can keep your beers cool for up to five days! You can stream the pregame commentary while chilling your beers at the same time. The best part is that it has three different handles making transporting it incredibly easy.
Once you’ve pulled your favorite beer out of your cooler, you’ll need a coozie. These magnetic coozies not only keep your cold ones cold, it also prevents you from losing your beer. The easy magnet can help you set your beer down where you’ll be able to find it again. With these coozies, you’ll never have to worry about losing your beer (or worse drinking a warm one) again.
Sometimes the best tailgating accessories are the simplest things with a great design. The Go Plate is exactly that. This doughnut-shaped plate has multiple dividers that keep your side dishes separated and fits right over the neck of your favorite beer. With this plate, you’ll be able to keep one hand free at all times. You’ll never again have to worry about setting your beer down and losing it to eat.
Pizzacraft PizzaQue Portable Pizza Oven
Now some people may question whether a portable pizza oven is really a necessity for tailgating. Pizza definitely is a tailgating necessity though. So if you love making your own pizza creations from scratch rather than ordering them, this is a must-have. This portable pizza oven is powered by propane and makes the most delicious oven-fired pizza. Maybe not a necessity but definitely one of the coolest tailgating accessories around!
In a perfect world, we’d be able to attend every single away game for our favorite team. Luckily though, homegating can be just as fun with the right tailgating accessories. The most important accessory is a way to watch the game and to really get the full tailgating experience you want to be outside. However, the sun can cause glare and make it hard to see the plays. The Sunbrite TVs solve this problem. They were specifically designed to watch the game outside. They are waterproof, anti-glare, and easy to set up and take down.
There’s nothing better than grilling and chilling before the big game. No one can chill if they are standing the whole time though. That’s why one of the must-have tailgating accessories is a comfortable portable chair. The Strongback Chair is so ideal for tailgating, you’d have thought it was designed with tailgaters in mind. You’ll feel like you were parked in a La-Z-boy. It’s also really functional. It’s foldable, sturdy, and has a deep cup holder for your cold ones. It’s a definite must-have.
All Cornhole Professional Boards
One of our favorite parts about tailgating is having some fun and healthy competition with our friends. Arguably the best tailgating game for a little competition is cornhole. Cornhole is really portable and everyone can jump in and play. We love the boards from All Cornhole. They are beautifully designed and built to professional specs. You’ll definitely want to have this at both your tailgating and homegating parties.
