Transform Your Cooler into a Tailgating Necessity

Everyone knows that coolers are great for keeping things, well, cool. It’s no secret, it’s right in the name! But your cooler is capable of so much more — in this instance, it can easily be transformed into the only tailgating necessity you’ll need for the sports season.

Tailgating is a part of sports culture, whether you’re coming out to watch a soccer game, a football game or pretty much any major league sport. Generally speaking, it involves having a few drinks and enjoying some hot, grilled food outside of the sports arena to get pumped up for the game.

But that’s often part of the difficulty — getting that hot, grilled food to the sports arena.

You basically have two options: you can bring a small grill and make your burgers or hot dogs fresh, or you can make hot food at home and transport it to your destination.

Most of us (especially first-time tailgaters) would probably prefer to cook at home, where you have a grill/stove/oven setup already! Otherwise, you have to invest in a transportable grill and bring all your raw ingredients to the arena, which can be an expensive pain in the neck.
