Homegating | Learn How to Tailgate at Home

The smell of grilled meats in the crisp fall air, the company of fellow fans in team colors, and the building anticipation for kickoff — these are the hallmarks of a great tailgate. But did you know you can cultivate that game-day atmosphere without fighting stadium crowds and traffic? It’s called homegating, and here’s the most important piece of the playbook: stack your squad with a game-ready grill, all-weather TVs, and whatever other outdoor living amenities you need to recreate parking-lot parties on the patio. Fortunately, you don’t have to spend hours scouting options in advance of the big game; everything you could want is right here at BBQGuys!

Start by studying our top-rated grills and smokers, which every good tailgate needs. Stock the sidelines with the usual tailgate trappings, from patio furniture to outdoor TVs and refrigeration (some good tunes won’t hurt, either). And if you’re having trouble putting the whole game plan together, consult our free 3D outdoor kitchen design service for complementary sketches that help you conceptualize your homegating setup. Our coaching clinic doesn’t stop there: we offer buying guides for homegating necessities, traditional tailgating recipes to make at home, and outdoor kitchen inspiration to get you started. So buckle your chin strap, call up your tailgating buddies, and get ready to cheer on the home team from the comfort of home.
