    Tailgating Question: Small, portable gas grill?

    Can I get some recommendations? The Weber Q and the Coleman Roadtrip look interesting, but I doubt they add much in the way of flavor.

    For complicated dishes (Dog's famous pulled pork), I expect to use my grill to warm up dishes completed at home.

    Otherwise, it will be used for kid friendly foods like hotdogs and burgers for a few years.

    It seemed to me that these guys had been in the parking lot the whole time. They were pretty much ensconsced in their chairs watching one of 5 screens on their customized Giants RVs.

    Maybe this goes on everywhere at all games, but I've never left a Jets game as early as I did last night (as I didn't really care about the outcome) so I've never fully appreciated or encountered it.

    I've used the Weber Q and I've found it to be solid. I'm not sure what gas grill would be adding flavor, but the Q is pretty compact, works well with the stand and fits nicely into a carrying bag (both of the last two are extra I think).

    I'm guessing you could incorporate some woodchips for flavor but I don't get that complicated in the parking lot.

    While it may not have been the case last night, I have known, at least pre-MetLife, guys that didnt have season tickets but lived close to the stadium (hoboken, etc.) that would come to a tailgate and then sit in the parking lot and watch the game on TV, some of them not even fans of the teams playing. I remember one guy who was a Cowboys fan who would tailgate with us for Jets home MNF games, and then watch the game in the parking lot. Not my thing, but they werent leaving an empty seat or going in late per se because they didnt have a ticket, and got to eat, drink, and socialize. Like a BYOB sports bar in the parking lot.

    Those guys last night, probably not the case though. with a Giants RV and that kind of setup.

    We used to do the post-game tailgate back in the day at the old stadium just to kill time. If you stay to the end of the game, and were in certain lots, you could either sit in your car for an hour waiting to get back to the NJ Tpke or GSP, or throw some dogs on the grill and socialize some more, and still get home at the same time.

    Sicillian Pizza, closest I can get (locally) to my favorite New York taste down here.

    definitely numerous home-cured meats. not going to get a chance to grill this sunday, and the meats definitely cut down on cooking time (probably life expectancy, too) and are delicious beyond belief -- got some sausage, proscuitto, pancetta, etc. probably incorporate them into breakfast and gametime fare with some cheese. guessing a dip of some sort. and I'm thinking chili simmering on the pot all day for something to chow on for the later games. maybe AM bloodies then PM brews.

    There's a theory that ticket prices and PSL's forced thousands of fans out of the stadium but not the parking lots. Many of these fans were in it for the beer and the guys anyway, so they just sit in the lot carousing, don't even have tickets. Get an HDTV, dress up in green, cook and drink and eat, watch the game with the buds, a nice cheap way to experience the game without sitting inside the stadium.

    Explains why the no-pass parking costs so much, trying to keep freeloaders out so there are spaces for paying customers.

    Leave it up to captain dip$hit for a stupid post like this. Apparently there can only be 80k jets fans. Just enough to get inside. Everyone else isnt a fan or freeloader. However, just compare how much the jets make from fans that come to the game compared to the millions of others through any television contracts and merchandising.

    You live in Pittsburgh. Where are you tailgating? Your driveway?

    There are a lot of fans that show up to the parking lots on gamedays who don't enter the stadium. Perhaps it's because they don't have tickets. You don't attend Jets games so you don't understand the true-fan experience.

    If you want flavor you would go with charcoal and some wood chunks.

    Gas is purely for convenience.

    Weber Q is the way to go. Check craigslist, there are usually some good deals. Just clean it up a little and it is good to go.

    Thanks for the responses. I was specifically speaking about season ticket holders who stay in the lot the whole time--or show up late to the seats and leave early before the end of the game--not folks who watch the game in the parking lot.

    From my experience the Solaire Gas Go Anywhere Portable Infrared Grill was the best. Never thought much about infrared heat until I saw a friend use it. Built well and will sear meat. It starts with a portable tank but can be converted to a 20 pound tank(which I did) or natural gas.

    And who cares if they go into the game. The fan experience can be enjoyed in many different ways.

    If you never miss kickoff and dont leave early, how do you know that there are "a lot of fans who dont enter the stadium".

    Do you go in between quarters and check out the parking lots?

    Anyway, anyone know of some good side dish recipes?

    Personal favorite is a backed clam dip....very simple, ritz crackers, butter, clams, heat for about 30 minutes. Good for a tailgate since you can crush up the crackers, clams and melted butter before you leave, and heat in pot on the grill.

    Also buffalo chicken dip always goes over well.
