These Are The Best Jobs At A Tailgate

Whether it’s before a football game, concert or whatever, it’s always fun to hang out in the parking lot and tailgate before the main event. But there’s a lot that goes into making sure it’s a fun time. And that’s particularly true when it comes to food, and it seems there’s one responsibility most people don’t mind taking on.

A new survey finds:

  • The most desired job at a tailgate is being the “grill master.”
  • In fact, 29% of those polled say being in charge of the grill is the best job to have at a tailgate, followed by:
    • Side dish taster (25%)
    • Game hype man (23%)
    • Cup refiller (18%)
    • Food server (18%)
  • And most people agree, you really should only have one person on the grill, with 34% preferring a single grill master, compared to having the job rotate between people (30%) 
  • When it comes to tailgating, the average person attends two tailgates a year.
  • And while some can get really big, most people agree 11 is the optimal size for a tailgating group.
  • Most tailgaters are likely to arrive two hours before a game.
  • 84% of people agree everyone who attends should bring at least one item.
  • And 46% say that if someone doesn’t bring anything, it’s unlikely they’ll be invited to another one. 
  • When it comes to food, the perfect tailgate has five different dishes.
  • 29% of people say they prefer to make something from scratch for the tailgate
  • Another 22% pick something up at the store.
  • The best foods to serve at a tailgate include:
    • Burgers (66%)
    • Hot dogs (56%)
    • Chips (52%)
  • The worst foods include:
    • Ice cream & popsicles (41%)
    • Pie (24%)
    • Salad (23%)
