We're right in the middle of football season and that means it's time to tailgate as much as possible. Whether you're planning on attending some college or NFL games, or you just want to have a neighborhood block party and watch the games on the weekend, you should do everything you can to tailgate to the best of your ability.

From serving the right types of BBQ to wearing the perfect jersey, these tips will help you tailgate like the pros.

Tailgate with the right people
If you're not tailgating with your friends or family -- it might be tough to have the perfect time. Having some drinks and enjoying some good food with strangers can be fun, but if you really want to ensure an amazing time, you need to have your best friends in the world right there by your side.

Bust out the Pitmaker smoker
According to the Hearth, Patio, and Barbecue Association (HBPA), 60% of grillers cook outdoors all year-round. Tailgating season is the perfect time to get that Pitmaker smoker and make some delicious food. Check out custom smokers for sale online and cook up some of the best tailgating food imaginable.

Keep a toolbox in your vehicle
You should have a toolbox in your tailgate but ditch the tools. Rather than having a hammer and some screws inside, have some tailgate essentials inside your toolbox for a great time. Keep a bunch of bottle openers, toothpicks, spatulas, tongs, trash bags, paper towels, basting brushes, and other tailgate essentials inside your toolbox.

Bring plenty of fun with you
Simply sitting around and having a beer can be a blast, but if you're tailgating for a while you should consider doing some other activities to pass the time. Bring can jam, a few footballs, a table for games, and anything else you can think of that might be fun for you and your group to enjoy.

Claim your area right away
Tailgating can actually be pretty competitive. It's important to get to a good location as early as possible and begin setting everything up right away. If you wait too long, other tailgaters will put down their tables and chairs in your space and you won't have as much freedom to enjoy yourselves.

As long as you go into your next tailgate party prepared, you'll surely have a fantastic time. Enjoy yourself and if you want to find quality Pitmaker smoker grills, contact Lone Star Grillz today.
