In honor of the start of the season, we’re cluing you in to our must-have tailgating accessories and tools. Just promise you’ll save us some buffalo chicken dip!

1. Cuisinart Grillster Portable Propane Gas Grill

The key word here is “portable”. This grill comes together in just five minutes, making it ideal for bringing to both home and away games. You can’t beat the price either; would you believe us if we told you this baby costs less than $75?!

2. Williams Sonoma BBQ Tool Set

A grill is important, but so are the tools that make it possible to use said grill! This set comes with a fork, tongs, spatula, and basting brush. Pack your four tools away in a stainless steel storage case and rest easy knowing that their synthetic black handles will stay cool no matter how hot your cooking may get.

3. Samuel Adams Octoberfest

Where there is a tailgate, there is usually beer! Get into the autumnal spirit with Sam Adams’s seasonal fall offering, Octoberfest. Its caramel notes pair perfectly with sausages, chili, and apple pie. Though best served cold, you’ll probably feel nice and toasty once you’ve sipped on a couple of these.

4. Treklite Plus Coolerpack Chair

Coolers often double as chairs during tailgates, so why not embrace these dual uses with a cooler designed as such?! This Coolerpack Chair can be transported as a backpack, freeing up your hands to carry other tailgating essentials. And it holds up to twelve cans, so you can pack enough beer for you and your buddy to enjoy all afternoon.
