Cold, Hard Football Facts for Jul 14, 2005
Cast-iron cooking is one of our preferred methods of tailgate cooking. You can, of course, place your cast iron pieces right on top of a hot grill. You can even place cast iron right into a hot wood fire. Typically, though, you'll want a good, portable stove and there are many on the market.
- Coleman makes a small, inexpensive, easy-to-carry two-burner stove that works well for smaller tailgates and that you can pick up for a song at Wal-Mart. A skilled tailgate chef should have no problem feeding 10 to 20 people from this simple set-up. The stove is served by a small, screw-on propane tank. With the small tank and fewer than 10,000 BTUs, it's sometimes difficult to get cast iron hot enough on this stove to make dishes that require intense heat, like blackened catfish. Visit the Coleman "web store" at www.coleman.com.
- Cabela's and other outdoor outfitters make larger and more durable cast-iron stoves with one, two or three burners. These are more expensive than the Coleman stoves, but churn out more BTUs, work with larger propane tanks, and are generally worth it for heavy-duty tailgating. Visit the "food prep" section of www.cabelas.com. (You can also buy Coleman stoves and cooking equipment on the Cabela's site.)
