I’m sure you’ve seen them too…back to school commercials. They seem to get earlier and earlier every year but for many of us it only means one thing; it’s almost football season and football season equals tailgating season! So instead of putting together the school stuff we need, we’ve put together this list of 9 Must Have Tailgating Supplies perfect for tailgating anywhere and easy to transport that you can use in the driveway or the stadium parking lot. We know to some of you tailgating is an art form so let us know how we did. Happy tailgating!

  • Portable Charcoal BBQ Grill

    At the very top of this Must Have list of Tailgating supplies lies this portable grill. If you’re tailgating it means you’re getting to the stadium hours before you plan to head in and watch the game. For my family, that means we’re going to be eating before we go in. A portable charcoal grill is exactly what we need.
