Audra Lowe: Okay, since it is pretty tough to compete with football for your man’s affection, why not just make him the best tailgating food possible, why not. Well, Better Man show us how then the Food Network Star, Kevin Roberts, here is your Tailgating 101.
Okay, Kevin Ill put you to the test; here we go Tailgating 101.
Kevin: Tailgating 101, I think I’m going to pass this task.
Audra Lowe: I do.
Kevin: —of course, I got to have block him away, avocados are super good on tailgating 101.
Audra Lowe: Must have, right?
Kevin: Must have, yes. And here’s my twist, roasted garlic, parmesan cheese, it’s really nice because they’re nice cheesy kick. The roasted garlic is a nice caramelized garlic flavor. Then, here’s my new thing, I’m calling it my hot babe.
Audra Lowe: I thought I was your hot babe?
Kevin: Well, you are baby.
Audra Lowe: Alright.
Kevin: Girls have tailgating more and more and then big — eaters.
Audra Lowe: Right.
Kevin: So, these are my hot dates, I’m just taking dates. I’m taking the little seed out and I’m stuffing it with Gorgonzola cheese, this was my little marsupial kinds of love.
Audra Lowe: All things you would say something like that with that easy finger food, right?
Kevin: Exactly, wrap them with some apple smoked bacon or your favorite bacon. Pair some with the toothpick, boom put them on a grill.
Audra Lowe: And you’re done.
Kevin: Good to go. Yeah, they caramelized, get all nice and crispy, the date, the cheese melts, it’s love, good luck.
Audra Lowe: I could see that, I could see that alright.
Kevin: And of course you know I'm paying this for my wings.
Audra Lowe: Yes.
Kevin: Tavern style.
Audra Lowe: Yes.
Kevin: This at my restaurant I sell about $1500.00 of this a week, here’s my trick with my wings, I boil them first.
Audra Lowe: Why do you boil them?
Kevin: I boil them 8 to 10 minutes because it’s non stop for 80% of fat gets a really nice and tender and then I throw them on the grill get them nice and crispy but here’s my—grab my tongs.
Audra Lowe: Grab you tong, grab it.
Kevin: A little softer.I used half barbecue sauce. Alright so it’s got that nice, sweet molasses type of flavor and of course French red hot baffle of wing sauce.
Audra Lowe: Don’t forget that.
Kevin: Of course it’s actually the original sauce, it’s the original baffle of wing ever 1964, mix all that together, that’s my tavern style sauce and we fill the wings right into the sauce.
Audra Lowe: Okay, I’m taking one. So, what do you do?
Kevin: Yeah, yeah. Just sauce them up and put them on a plate and you're—getting heaven.
Audra Lowe: That’s it?
Kevin: That’s still getting everything right there my friends.
Audra Lowe: Okay I love it, that was quick and it’s fast and it’s easy. Can you give us another tip for the wings at all?
Kevin: Yeah, what’s great about boiling the wings if you’re going at a tailgate party or going to the game, you can actually put this in Tupperware and take them so they’re not officially raw anymore. So, you don’t do a lot of raw chicken because—are not in really tough for a game—so that’s a little trick on a trade. And of course you always end a tailgating party with.
Audra Lowe: No, this man is crazy, drink in it. Alright, so we got the guacamole, we’ve got a date and of course we’ve got some little wings.
