Comment of the Day: Tailgating 101

Here on Eating Our Words, the commenters absolutely make the blog, and our Comment of the Day honors the best of the bunch.

Every day, we read you guys and pick the commenter, or commenters, who made us laugh, cry, salivate over something delicious, or think about things in a new way.

In return, we offer them a virtual White Russian.

Sorry, but here in Texas and in the south in general tailgating has never been about "just plain burgers and dogs". If you aren't smoking brisket, ribs or sausage you aren't tailgating, you are just cooking out in a parking lot.

We'll have what he's having. Happy weekend, food nerds!
