It’s official! This Sunday, the New England Patriots will be playing against the Philadelphia Eagles at Super Bowl LII. By kickoff, you want an off the field game plan for hungry family and friends. Did you know that Super Bowl Sunday is the biggest winter grilling day of the year? It’s the one day that grillers and BBQ enthusiasts brave the cold temperatures outside to grill and smoke mouth-watering food to enjoy during the biggest game of the year.
Whether you’re new to throwing a Super Bowl party or you throw one almost every year, Jim Ginocchi, president of Coyote Outdoor Living and Chef Jonathan Collins, also known as ‘The Outdoors Chef’, have created the ultimate entertaining playbook. These expert grilling tips and game-time recipes will help you score a gourmet touchdown and earn you your fair share of bragging rights. After all, every party needs good food and unlimited ice-cold beverages.
Here are simple grilling and party tips that you should be following to make the most out of your Super Bowl party:
- Allow time to warm up: Pre-heating your grill is essential to having a successful cookout. Light your grill and wait 10-15 minutes before putting any food on it.
- Limit the turnovers: You can’t get those classic grill marks by turning over your meat as many times as the opposing quarterback turns the ball over. Take your time and turn the meat 90 degrees after a couple minutes of grill time to get those mouthwatering marks.
- Keep the helmet on: Once the food is on the grill, keep the cover closed for optimal results.
- The two-minute warning: Ran out of cold ones late in the game? Finish the party strong with the two-minute chill drill by spinning the beer in some heavily salted water for two minutes to instantly chill your beverages.
