If y’all know anything about us, you know we love Georgia football. Heck, we love all football…we’ve even been known to watch a powder puff game or two back in the day. One of the best things about college football season is tailgating! There’s something about hanging out in a parking lot with your friends and eating food out of plastic containers or fresh off the grill that makes us both say YUM! Maybe it’s more of a guy thing, but it’s definitely a sure thing for the best Saturday afternoon in the fall!
We’re happy to share another of our many tailgating recipes found in this issue of our magazine, The Deen Bros. Good Cooking. It’s packed with recipes and tips for making your football season a winner! Go Dawgs!
