The air is crisp, the leaves are changing colors and every Saturday afternoon men and woman all across America are letting out a collective cheer for their favorite team…its FOOTBALL season!! And when it is football season that means tailgating parties and nothing is more frustrating than a bad tailgating experience.
With proper planning, however, you can have a great tailgating experience next time you go out. Here are a few items that can make your tailgating or fall grilling experiences even better:
FireStarters are packets of uniquely developed fire starting material that burns hot and clean with no harmful toxins. One FireStarter can start a charcoal or wood fire and burn at 1500 degrees for about 10 minutes, enough time to easily get a good fire going. Burns clean with no smell. Safe for transport, will not self-combust like other petroleum-based starters. Simple to use, just place the packet under charcoal, wood, etc and light one corner to ignite. Great for grilling as it ignites charcoal without the taste and mess of lighter fluid.
Grate Chef Grill Wipes attach to the bristles of any grill brush and apply high heat grilling oil to any grill grate, hot or cold, preventing food from sticking so you no longer have to worry about your hamburgers or chicken sticking to the grill. Grill Wipes are non-toxic and biodegradable and are non-combustionable so you don’t have to worry about frustrating flair ups.
Trash-Ease is a portable trash bag holder that attaches to picnic tables or any similar flat surface, allowing users to have a stable, large trash receptacle anywhere they happen to be. Great for a broad range of outdoor activities. Simply attach it to a surface, attach any standard trash bag to it and it is ready to use. Made in the USA, the sturdy design of the Trash-Ease makes it durable enough to be taken and used everywhere on a daily basis, while its slim, lightweight and one-piece design allows it to be transported and stored easily in a closet, shelf, trunk, camper cubby or nearly any other similar storage location without the need for tools.
Finally, the Thermacell Outdoor Lantern is the best option for keeping mosquitoes and other insects in any outdoor camping setting. The Outdoor Lantern is both a powerful insect repellent device and a functional and portable, long-lasting outdoor LED lantern, with both functions being usable separately or together. Providing a 15×15 ft mosquito-free zone, it is 98% effective and is non-toxic, safe and non-intrusive, being DEET-free, silent, portable and odor free. Since it is so lightweight it is perfect for tailgating, picnics, camping and more. 8 LEDs provide the light from the lantern, which has two settings controlled by a switch that is located on the base of the lantern and is powered by 4 AA batteries.
