Tailgating Food: Easy Super Bowl Recipes

Tailgating is an important part of the football ritual. It's an art – of planning, execution, and delivery – much like the plays your team is running on the field. This season, the Otto Wilde Team wants to pay tribute to all the dedicated tailgate grillers out there. Here's your guide to this season of Super Bowl tailgating.
