2017 Alabama Tennessee Tailgate and Welcome Thrillist!

Finally, fall is in the air!  This week we welcome a couple of things to campus.  #1 is the Tennessee Volunteers and I hope we beat them like a rented mule.  #2 is Thrillist!

Thrillist is in their second season of filming Food/Groups and Alabamatailgate.com is lucky enough to have them join us for this weekend’s tailgate.  They’ll be shooting some footage at the tailgate, visiting the Quad and filming some other segments here in Alabama – check out a sneak peek of season 2 here.  Join us in helping welcome them to Tuscaloosa.

This week I’m working the visiting team’s state back into the menu.  It’s had to think of Tennessee and tailgates without Jack Daniels coming into the picture, so I’ll be using it in a sauce.  In doing research, I found that Mt Dew was developed in Knoxville – so I’ll be doing a desert with Mt Dew.

With a 2:30 kickoff, I’m shooting to have food off at 12:30


  • Bacon, Egg and Cheese sandwiches



  • 14 Hour Brisket
  • Smoked Chicken Wings
  • Smoked Chicken Quarters
  • Crimson White Sauce
  • Jack Daniels BBQ Sauce

Hope to see you Saturday!

Roll Tide,
