When it comes to cheering on your favorite football teams, there is a lot to be excited about, including the food! Whether you are pulling out a portable grill and tailgating or creating a delicious spread at home, we've gathered together some inspiration to feed a variety of appetites, including some ideas that incorporate shortcuts. For instance, dive into our Smoked Right Here meats! Our pitmaster will put in all of the work (and flavor), and you get the credit by finishing it off with a special touch or favorite sauce. Next, stock up on all of our Made Right Here dips and spreads! Just think of all of the fun that can be had by pairing them with veggies, artisanal crackers and breads, DLM White Corn Tortilla Chips, and more! Have fun this season crafting your snack playbook! 

Gourmet Tailgating: The Quarterback



Huddle up with your team around this tailgating spread that has a touch of gourmet infused throughout!

  • Rosemary Lamb Gourmet Sliders

Divide up our flavor-packed Rosemary Lamb Gourmet Burger into slider portions at home prior to cooking. Serve with Cedar's Tzatziki or Labne and Brooklyn Delhi Tomato Achaar on our Ciabatta Roll.

  • Chicken Lollipops

Take your snacking spread to the next level with these impressive chicken lollipops. Starting with the thinner end of a DLM Natural Air-Chilled Chicken Drumstick, carefully cut through the skin and meat until you've reached the bone. Repeat this process going all the way around the drumstick. With the back edge of the knife, or your hands, push the meat towards the thicker end of the drumstick and pull the skin over to help form the lollipop shape. Bake or grill and brush with Jack's Grill Honey Ginger Teriyaki Grilling Sauce for a perfectly sweet and savory bite.


Heat up some of our Smoked Right Here Baby Back Ribs and slather with your favorite BBQ sauce. You'll also score big with a cheese and charcuterie tray, Killer Brownie® quarters, Marcona Almonds, and a variety of crudités.
