Tailgate Tips & Tricks

Does your perfect weekend consist of football, greasy food, cold drinks, and thousands of screaming fans?  Then, we've got a few tailgate tips to make your concrete, parking lot dreams a reality.

FOOD:

Depending on when kick off is, you'll want to prep food the night before. Ziplock bags and Tupperware are two resourceful items to help to keep food fresh. But, most importantly, don't stress yourself out planning a gourmet meal. Keep it simple. Attendees expect the typical brats/hotdogs, burgers, chips, and potato salad. Everything else is just an added tasty bonus!

DRINKS:

If possible, pre-freeze your coolers the night before. This will extend your cooler's temperature control ability. We also recommend freezing a few water bottles. This will help keep food and drinks cool, while keeping the party hydrated.  Their dual purpose is great for trying to save on space. Check out these tips and tricks on How To Pack A Cooler.

GAMES:

No tailgate is complete without a few lawn (tailgate) games. Be sure to pick up a set of corn hole/bag toss, a deck of cards, ladder golf, etc. Crank it up a notch and set the tone with wireless bluetooth speakers. Don't forget to pre-charge your speakers and music devices the night before. You might even consider bringing an extra charge just in case!

PRODUCTS:

Having reliable products at your tailgater will not only remove stress, but it'll make it that much tastier. Here's a quick run down of our tailgate favorites:

COOKING:

FURNITURE:

DON'T FORGET:

In the midst of the crazy party planning, you're bound to forget a thing or two. Don't forget the bug spray, sun screen, trash bags, trash bin, hand sanitizer, canopy, cups, condiments, utensils, napkins, and paper towel.

 

Do you have any tailgate party/pre-game tips and tricks? Let us know in the comment section below.

Camp Chef Woodwind

It should be no surprise that Camp Chef's Woodwind Pellet Grill that launched April 2017 is still our top seller.  Customers love the diversity of the included side sear box. Pair these two cooking styles together makes the Woodwind one of the most versatile grills on the market.

“I decided to go with the Camp Chef Woodwind grill with [Sear Box] and I couldn’t be more pleased! I now have a single grill that will truly smoke, grill, bake, and sear! In fact, my wife and I meal prep on it! We can use the [Sear Box] to quickly grill our chicken (4-5 minutes) while smoking pork tenderloin! Culinary multi-tasking! Gotta love that!” - Cody O (Amazon Verified Review)

2. SMOKEPRO DLX PELLET GRILL - Bronze

Camp Chef SmokePro DLX

“We should have bought one years ago. We have cooked whole chickens on the rack and boy it is the best chicken ever...crispy outside and very moist and tender inside. Ribs, salmon, and steaks are really great also...Would recommend this BBQ unit to anyone.” - Brian V (Amazon Verified Review)

3. FLAT TOP GRILL 475

Camp Chef Flat Top Grill 475

The Flat Top Grill 475 is the smallest of the Flat Top Grill fleet by Camp Chef. And boy, they’ve been selling like hot cakes this season. Speaking of hot cakes, that’s not all they can make.

“I’ve never had a flat top grill, but I am sold on the way it cooks and cleans. Cooking is very fast compared to my covered cooker, and just scrape, season, wipe off the excess, and the grill is clean. Very compact! This will fit anywhere!” - HDTVMAN

4. SMOKEPRO LUX PELLET GRILL

Camp Chef SmokePro LUX

The SmokePro Lux pellet grill was made for our customers who want a larger cooking area. Enjoy all the features of the SmokePro line on one of Camp Chef's biggest units. Get 875 -quare inches of unrestrained savory smoking space. This sleek black grill is the perfect addition to your back patio.

“I have had my Camp Chef Pellet Grill LUX for a few months and I couldn’t be happier. Before I decided on my purchase, I did a lot of research on other brands and found that the Camp Chef had the most features, for the best price. Win-Win! The pellet hopper, has a pull out, which makes it easy when you want to switch flavor of pellets, instead of running the pellets all the way of the hopper and auger chamber. The other feature that Camp Chef has, that I haven’t seen on any other pellet grills, is the ash cup clean out. It’s nice not having to get out the shop vac every time you are done cooking just to clean out the fire pot. This pellet grill cooks great and has plenty of room! It will fit at least 6-8 full pork butts (depending on size). I put 7 in there for a work party, and it cooked like a dream. Filled the hopper and it did the rest. I am very happy with my purchase and I would buy this pellet grill again.” - Boss Man

5. PRO 90X THREE-BURNER STOVE

Camp Chef Pro 90X

For our ever-active outdoor cooking enthusiasts, the Pro 90X is our best selling stove.  Set up for a Friday night football tailgate part, then seamlessly transition to the campground on Saturday morning. The two folding shelves are perfect for extra prep or rest space, while the three-sided windscreen helps protect from the elements. Cook brats, burgers, and everything in between on three powerful burners.  For even more added fun our consumers love to mix and match other 16 inch accessories like a fry griddle and pizza oven.

“We’ve used this several times now and love it. We bought the cast iron cook top to use on it and have cooked everything from breakfast items to steak, etc. It works great and folds up easily for better storage. It is heavy, so it’s hard for me (a 5’1” female) to get in and out of my LQ horse trailer to use if my husband doesn’t go with me...but not impossible. Just takes lots of muscle and maneuvering. I would definitely recommend it if you cook a lot camping. I do think we would have been ok with a 2 burner instead of a 3 burner but it’s nice knowing we have that extra burner if we need it or camp with a big group and want to cook lots of food.” - Countrygrl4u2nv (Amazon Verified Review)

Bonus: BBQ TOOL SET

BBQ Tool Set

The Camp Chef BBQ Tool Set is our best selling accessory to date. Its multi-use, three-piece set pairs well with just about every grill on the market. Get a silicon basting brush, a grill box spatula, and a pair of tongs—nothing but the grilling essentials.

How To Pack A Cooler

Are you venturing outside to brave the heat this summer? We're going to help you pack your cooler for optimum chill whether you’re going on a weeklong trip through the backcountry or enjoying an afternoon barbecue on your patio.

You may think that packing a cooler is a foolproof process that only requires adding ice to whatever you are trying to keep cool. Well, you're not wrong; however, we have some pro tips on how to pack your cooler like an expert for optimum ice retention so you can stay out longer.

 

Before You Go

Practice

Just like you had to practice before you could ride a bike, becoming a “master packer” is a learned skill. Collect all of the items you’re going to bring on your trip and do a dry-run to make sure that everything fits. Remember that you will be adding ice so you don’t have the full capacity of the cooler at your disposal.

Pro tip: Organize your cooler into different meal sections so you always know where to find all of your ingredients quickly.

Pre-Chill

The best-kept secret of the outdoor cooking community is the idea of pre-chilling your cooler. Beginning your trip with a frosty cooler will greatly extend the life of your ice.

Fill your cooler up with a couple bags of ice the night before you head off for an adventure to trap as much cold air in the cooler’s insulation as possible. Dump the water and ice and you are ready to start packing your cooler for real.

Another method of pre-chilling is bribing your local grocer/restaurant/friend to allow you to store your cooler (with the lid open) in their professional grade freezer overnight.

Ice-Blocks

It's best practice to use larger ice-blocks rather than traditional cocktail ice cubes. Ice-blocks melt at a much slower rate than smaller traditional ice cubes and their block shape makes it easy to pack your cooler.

Prep The Food

Clean all of your ingredients prior to packing so they and ready to eat right out of the cooler. If you're planning on taking a multi-day trip - freezing your meats will help keep your cooler cold without taking up additional space with ice.

 

While In Use

Keep it Closed Keep it Cool

We believe in the closed door policy (at least when referencing coolers.) We’re sure you’ve seen the Corona commercials that make relaxing next to an open cooler overflowing with ice and beer look amazing. You know what isn’t amazing? Warm beer.

Every time you open your cooler you are exposing it to warm air and shortening the lifespan of your ice. Make sure to only open your cooler with purpose. We recommend organizing your cooler to avoid leaving it open for prolonged periods of searching.

Drain

Draining the water at the bottom of your cooler will preserve the life of your ice and we recommend doing so if you are going on an extended trip.

If you're taking a day trip and the majority of your cooler is filled with drinks, the direct contact with the cold water will actually keep your canned and bottled beverages colder than contact with the ice itself.

 

Post Adventure Cleanup

Scrub The Grub

As soon as you get home from your adventure, dump the ice and give your cooler a good clean. Store your cooler in a dry, safe place so it is ready for your next adventure.

Gas Grill Cooking Tips for Your Next Backyard BBQ

Backyard barbecue season is almost upon us, which means it’s time to clean up the gas grill and roll it out to the back patio. We’ve rounded up some awesome info on how to get the most out of every cookout this year.

Learn the Heat Zones

Any grill master will tell you it’s all about heat management. Just because your grill has four powerful burners doesn’t mean all of them need to be at full blast. Instead, you should use the tried-and-true combo of indirect and direct heat zones.

Direct Heat

Direct heat means you are cooking over a lit burner, so the heat source is directly below your food. This is most often what we imagine when we think barbecue. And for good reason—you’ll want to use direct heat on most of the classic BBQ foods like burgers, brats, steaks, kabobs, and veggies. This will leave them with a great seared taste and texture.

You can use direct heat with any of your burners’ temperature settings. High works great for searing, medium is best for hot and fast cooking, and low is good with more fragile foods. No matter how hot you’re cooking, be sure to preheat your grill for 10-15 minutes before you start.

Indirect Heat

Indirect heat is your best option for roasting or low-and-slow cooking on your gas grill. Rather than lighting up the burners right beneath your food, you’ll want to ignite the burners on either side, leaving the middle burners off for convection-style heat. With a closed lid, this method will cook from all sides evenly. This is perfect for thicker foods or foods that need a slower cook, like whole chicken, turkey, roast, ribs, bread, and more. As noted above, make sure to preheat your grill for 10-15 minutes before throwing the food on.

You can also utilize the indirect heat zone for regular barbecuing with burgers and similar foods. Leaving a burner or two open as an indirect heat zone will give you a place to keep food warm while you wait for other items to finish cooking. That’s right: no more burnt burgers or cold brats.

Searing Like a Pro

When you’ve got high, direct heat, you’ve got a recipe for a great sear. Try some of these tips for searing steak, burgers, chicken, and more:

    Direct Heat Grilling
  • Pat meat dry before cooking. A dry surface is easier to brown and sear just right.
  • If you want an even, thorough sear, try flipping your meat multiple times throughout the cook so neither side burns with the high heat. Please note, this isn’t what you want to do with burger patties—just flip those one time.
  • Try the reverse sear method for thicker cuts: cook meat on indirect heat until you reach 15° F below your desired temperature; then transfer to direct heat to sear on either side until finished.
  • Cook with the lid open while you’re searing so your food is only getting heat on one side at a time.
  • Thicker meats that are at least 1-inch thickness will hold up to searing better than thin cuts
  • Rotate the meat to sear as much of its surface as possible. You can also achieve the trademark diamond sear marks this way.

Know Your Temps

The most common gas grill cooking mistake is cooking by time rather than temperature. The amount of time it takes to cook a steak will vary depending on the outside weather, the starting temperature of the meat, the heat of the grill, and more. In other words, it might not be the same every time you try it. To guarantee the best results, you should always cook according to temperature.

Make sure you have a reliable instant-read thermometer in your grilling tool kit. Poking the side of your meat to get the internal temperature—despite popular belief—will not release precious juices and ruin a steak. In fact, getting an accurate temperature reading can make all the difference for cooking meat to perfection. Plus, you can make sure you are cooking everything to safe standards before chowing down.

Key Temperatures

  • Fish: 145° F
  • Ground meats (including burgers): 160° F
  • Poultry: 165° F

Beef Temperatures

  • Rare: 120-130° F
  • Medium-rare: 130-135° F
  • Medium: 135-145° F
  • Medium-well: 145-155° F
  • Well-done: 155° F

Fruits and Vegetables

You can actually do a lot with produce on the grill. And for many fruits and vegetables, high heat and a good sear will enhance the flavors and textures wonderfully. But they don’t cook the same way as meat on the grill. Be sure to follow these tips when it comes to produce items:

    Grilled Veggies
  • Brush vegetables with oil before cooking.
  • Thin, tender produce (like asparagus, bell pepper, onion) is best over high, direct heat and cooks quickly (so time it accordingly).
  • Thick, tougher produce (like cauliflower, squash, and potato) is best with lower, indirect heat and needs more time to cook.
  • Root veggies like potatoes cook best when they’re cut into disks or chunks.
  • Try apples, peaches, pineapple, figs, and pears on the grill—they taste great!

14 Camp Cooking Tips You Need to Try

Most of us go camping to escape the stress of the daily grind. It's a break from the pace of day-to-day life and a chance to relax in the peace of nature. However, campsite cooking can sometimes bring its own set of headaches. Limited food options, a lack of cooking gear, and the hassle of trying to prep food in the wilderness could quickly turn your camping trip from a vacation into a nightmare. But that's why we've come up with this list. Gone are the days of cheap hot dogs on roasting sticks. Follow our camp cooking tips below, and enjoy a delicious camping trip.

  1. Plan your meals ahead of time. This is usually a no-brainer, but it's worth mentioning. Measuring ingredients and packing items specific to each meal together can save a lot of time. Use zip-lock bags to keep dry ingredients dry and wet ingredients from leaking.
  2. Freeze your meat. This is two-fold tip. First, the meat will keep longer, which is perfect if you're camping for more than one night. This mean you won't have to eat all the meat on day one to keep it from going bad. Take fresh meat for the first day and frozen meat for the following days. Second, the frozen meat is a great way to help keep the temperature down in your cooler.
  3. Always keep a supply of aluminum foil. Just a good idea. Aluminum foil can keep food warm, cover food for later use, or provide a method of cooking over the open fire. It's a must-have for campsite cooking.
  4. Use heavy-duty aluminum bags. These are great for quick and easy cooking. They take almost no room at all and allow you to mix your meat and vegetables together. Aluminum bags can be used to cook on a camp stove, oven, or over the fire, which keeps your cooking options open. Also, clean-up is very easy.
  5. Chop your meat and vegetables before you leave. Prepping food at the campsite can be a pain. Doing all the work at home will save a huge amount of time and help avoid the mess at camp. Chopped meat and vegetables should be stored in plastic bags as mentioned above. This will avoid contamination and keep your vegetables nice and dry.
  6. Dutch Oven Cooking Over Fire
  7. Select and take only the cookware you plan to use. By doing this you can make sure that you dont forget important pots, pans, skillets, grills, or whatever you use to cook with. Keeping your cookware down to only what you need will save space and time when it comes to mealtime. We recommend bringing a cast iron skillet or Dutch oven as your go-to cookware. Cast iron is incredibly durable and versatile, so you can easily use one dish for all three meals.
  8. Heat your cleaning water while you eat. Once you have completed the meal, fill a hot water pot with water and start it warming on your camp stove or over the fire. This way you won't have to wait for it to warm up for cleaning after your meal.
  9. Put everything you can into squeeze bottles. Pancake batter, scrambled eggs, condiments, oils, dressings—you name it. Putting these foods into squeeze bottles will save you from using extra utensils and make cooking much easier. Plus, if the bottle ever gets cold, you can simply place it in a pan of warm water. No squeeze bottles lying around the house? You can also use disposable water bottles instead.
  10. Test your camp stove before you leave. Really, nothing can be worse than finally getting to your destination with a bunch of travel-weary people who are ready to eat and then discovering that your stove won't light. Make sure your stove is clean and that your propane tanks are full (or full enough). Need a reliable camp stove? Check out the Pro 60X or the Pro 90X.
  11. Coat the outside of pots and pans with dish soap before cooking. This helps immensely with clean up. Any food on the outside of the pan simply falls right off when you wash it. Just make sure you don't apply any soap on the surfaces you'll be cooking on—that wouldn't taste great. All you need is a thin layer.
  12. Keep food locked up. Nobody wants animals picking through their food, especially bears. Either keep your food in a chuck box, high in a tree, or in your vehicle. This will protect you and your family, as well as the local wildlife.
  13. Always cover food while cooking. Covering pots and pans will not only keep insects out of your food, but it will also help your meals cook faster. This can also save you space on packing, as you won't need to bring the lids to all your cookware pieces.
  14. Use a little cooking oil on the camp grill. Natural cooking oil will keep your food from sticking to your grill and help keep your cast iron seasoned. Plus, it will keep clean-up to a minimum by preventing a bunch of burnt-on food.
  15. Try cooking with your Dutch oven on your camp stove. Dutch ovens aren't only for over-fire cooking or charcoal briquettes. They're also great for stoves with a heat diffuser plate. You don't have to wait for charcoal to heat up, there's no ash to clean up, and you have total control of the heat output. For breads and other recipes that need a little extra heat from the top, try a Dutch oven cover to create convection circulation.
