    Gameday: Favorite Beer & Snack Combinations

    As I sit watching wild card weekend... I have beer (currently a Guinness, shortly will be switching to a local hazy IPA), but I don't have any good snacks. What are your favorite snacks for gameday to have with a cold one? Open to store bought or homemade. I'm craving some honey roasted peanuts and Jalapeno poppers.

    For homemade snacks, favorite recipe?

      Could be worse. You could live in Houston.

      I’m a Michigander so... I am very familiar with rooting against my own team to get someone in management fired

    Whatever beer I have at the moment. Today it’s Budweiser. I don’t snack a lit during games. But when I do, it’s usually a cheese, salami, cracker type thing. No fuss, no mess.

      Bloody Mary’s and anything greasy or salty. Also typically meat and cheese cut up.

            If you live in Texas, go to HEB and get these. Trust me. These are the best tortilla chips and salsa I’ve ever had. Their chips are the only tortilla chips I’ve eaten that don’t need a dip. You can eat them like potato chips. A little bit spicy with a hint of cumin and lots of flavor. The salsa comes in 3 flavors, this Serrano is my favorite. Everyone I’ve turned on to this stuff has said it’s the best they’ve had. The salsa is only sold at HEB, the chips are also at Walmart, at least in Texas. I’m snacking on this today watching football. And just to garner a few laughs, I only drink Coors Light beer. I’m not that adventurous concerning beer.

              They've closed all the HERB shops around here.

            I ended up with Pizza, wings, Dod’s pretzels, honey roasted peanuts, and jalapeño chips for wild card weekend “snackage”. Serving me well so far

              My sad and I always called it snackage growing up... when my mom would ask how much we bought at the store before a game day (football was big in my house”, we’d always say “oh just a little snackage” regardless of how much we actually bought

              Even a Texan was rooting for Russel and the Seahawks. Damnit that they lost.

              That spread looks better than the point spread.
              Where is the PBR?

            Panhead John these are my go to’s up here Herdez is the closest salsa I’ve found to San Antonio momnpop bistro salsa
            I like a thin light nacho and these Que Pasa nachos fit the bill next are by a restaurant called Jack Astor’s who makes them fresh as ordered
            Visits to Texas have spoiled and jaded me against industrial nachos and salsa

              smokin fool Yes sir! That is also an excellent choice. I’ve had the Herdez salsa before and it is good. I try and look for ones made in Texas or New Mexico if I’m not familiar with them.

          Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

          The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

          The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


          The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

          Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


          This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

          Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


          The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

          Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

          We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
