All you guests will love jumping in to create their own version of the "best brisket slider", plus you can keep the options open no matter what foods some people love (or love to hate).
You can stick with a classic combo of a white bun, brisket, pickles, red onion and cheese.
Or shake things up with a Hawaiian bread bun, coleslaw and pickled jalapeños!
Not to mention all the stress this whole DIY slider bar takes off you as the host/hostess... But that's just an extra side bonus to everything loving the food and having fun, right? ;)

Tailgating is a must, no matter what team you are rooting for. Hitting the parking lots and getting amped up for the big game is the only way to ensure your team will bring home the victory. So you want to make sure you are hosting the most epic tailgating party ever, right? You might be a seasoned tailgater, or a complete newbie; regardless we've got the keys to assured tailgating party success right here. Buckle up BBQ peeps, it's time to get down and dirty with tailgating party prep.
Game Day Decorations You don't have to drop $500 on decorations, but making sure you are displaying those team colors loud and proud is the ultimate way to set the mood. Grab tablecloths, napkins, plates, the works. Everyone needs to know that you bleed those colors! Tailgating On the Go? Turn your SUV into table. That's right, just lay down the seats and pop the truck. Add a tablecloth to the floor and a cooler full of drinks. You can even set out your mad food spread right there so even a little rain can't ruin your party scene.
FOOD AND BOOZE Most importantly, don't skimp on the food and the booze, not to mention water for when everyone inevitably drinks too much without hydrating. Check out any of our killer Sauce + Style recipes for inspiration, or just grab a Pig of the Month BBQ feast so we can do the cooking for ya! Just make sure you're making everything handheld - no one wants to sit down with a knife and fork. Get Those Butts a Rest All that standing, boozing and eating means people will need a little rest from time to time. Be sure to grab plenty of collapsable seating for everyone! Chilly Out? Stock up on the blankets! You can even use this as an opportunity to bring in those team colors in another way.
Pump Up the Jams A mix of current jams and upbeat 80s classics are perfect for setting the mood. Don't forget to load up the team's fight song! Say Buh-Bye to Red Cups Those red cups are getting a little old aren't they? Class up your shindig with some mason jars instead. Give Them Something to Do Standing around for hours drinking and eating can get a little boring. Set up a game of cornhole, or just bring a couple balls so people can throw around the pigskin.
Grilling? If you are busting out the big guns and grilling up tasty meats for your peeps, don't forget to haul along extra charcoals and propane. Make sure you also have everything you need to safely cool down the grill and dispose of ashes before heading into the game. Follow these little tidbits of advice and you are going to have a legendary team celebration bash no one will forget. Just be prepared to be asked to host every tailgating party from now until forever.
How is it already the end of August?! Before we know it the summer will be over and we'll be sipping pumpkin spice lattes while we tailgate for our fav football team. So how am I getting the most out of these final days of summer? Three words. Sparkling Watermelon Punch.
Watermelon is my favorite fruit to gorge on during the summer. It's refreshing and light so you can eat an entire watermelon and not feel like a total whale afterwards. Not that I've ever tried to do that or anything... So it's only natural to put all that fresh watermelon to good use - in a cocktail. This big batch punch is perfect for your next summer BBQ. It's light and bubbly, which is exactly what you want to be sipping on while you are grilling up all those meats. It's just a little tart and not too sweet, so even the dudes at the party won't feel too girly sipping on it too.
The best part? It's only 4 ingredients and it comes together in less than 2 minutes. Forget spending all that time fussing over complicated recipes! You need to be out on the patio, sipping this punch and soaking up what's left of the summer sun. Go ahead and pin this bad boy now because you know you're gonna want to bust this out all weekend long when Labor Day rolls around next week! Speaking of Labor Day, keep an eye out on the blog, because we're rounding up our favorite Sauce + Style recipes to keep your celebrations going all weekend long, Pig of the Month BBQ style.
