College football small-space tailgating: Win or lose, you need good food

Let’s face it, other than the game itself the most important part of tailgating is the food. Even if you don’t have a giant trailer-sized smoker or an outdoor kitchen you can still make some delicious food for your small intimate crowd.

The NomadiQ Grill is the perfect small-space grilling accessory. Folding up to about the size of a large women’s handbag and coming in at just over 12 pounds, this mighty mini-grill has a lot more bang than the old rusty Hibachi.

All you need is a propane tank to hook into. The NomadiQ comes with everything else other than the food to throw on its non-stick metal surface. There’s plenty of space for burgers, dogs, chicken, or even a couple of man-sized steaks.

Of course, you need some sweet treats to follow up your meal, and you can accomplish that in many different ways regardless of how little space you have.

You could opt to have a supply of chocolate bars, squares and other treats on hand from Skinny Me Premium Chocolate. These sweets have zero sugar (sweetened with stevia), are keto-friendly, gluten-free and have only 40-50 calories per serving.

Perhaps you’re more interested in the sideline than the waistline, and you’re looking for a more traditional sweet to serve. There’s no sweeter treat more American than the S’more. But smaller spaces don’t have the luxury of a fire pit or other available open flame needed to make them.

We’ve all seen disastrous videos of people attempting S’mores over their gas or electric stove.

City Bonfires to the rescue!

These portable flame pits are just big enough for a small space, and the S’mores Night Pack comes complete with the grahams, marshmallows, chocolate, and even the sticks to toast your mallows.

Even the smallest patios are the perfect size for a City Bonfire s’mores night.

So even dwellers in the smallest of spaces can have some big tailgate parties with these great products. After all, it’s not the size of the party, it’s making the most out of the college football season every week.
