Tailgate Snacks


Taking the RV out for a football game, especially the big game, if you have tickets, is much better than taking a truck for tailgating. Depending on the venue, you might even be able to camp out in the parking lot. Tailgating just got even more fun. You can wake up and cook a big breakfast of eggs, bacon (BACON!), toast, sausage, hash browns, corned beef hash, pancakes and all of your other favorites. And then, play some parking lot football until it’s time to break out the grill for some great tailgate food.

Honey Barbecue Wings

  • 1 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 cup honey
  • Wings


Mix the honey and barbecue sauce in a bowl. Thoroughly coat the wings with the sauce and barbecue. Save the leftover sauce to baste the wings as they are cooking.

Buffalo Wings

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp. Cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp. Garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. Salt
  • 1 cup hot sauce
  • 1 cup butter
  • Chicken wings


Mix the flour, cayenne pepper, garlic powder and salt in a resealable bag. Add the chicken wings and shake them until they are thoroughly coated. Refrigerate the wings on a cookie sheet for an hour. If you don’t have room in the fridge, put them in a large cooler. Meanwhile, add the hot sauce and butter to a sauce pan. Heat the mixture until it’s melted.

Dip the wings in the sauce and barbecue until they are cooked through. Use any excess sauce to baste the wings as they are cooking.

Baby Back Ribs

  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Badia’s Redfish seasoning
  • Paprika
  • Cumin
  • Hickory smoked barbecue sauce
  • Ribs


Liberally coat the ribs with all of the spices. You can either sprinkle the spices on the ribs or you can mix everything together to create a rub. Coat the ribs with the barbecue sauce. Cook until they are done on a grill. To make the ribs super tender, use a closed grill and set the flame so the temperature is about 185 degrees. Cook for 4 to 5 hours, flipping and basting them with barbecue sauce every hour. Cut the ribs and serve as finger food.
