The Tailgate Foodie: A History

A Short History

I started a food blog in 2018. We started a seasoning company in 2020.

A Long History

It all started in 2018. My love of food, grilling, and sports were solidified FAR before that fateful day, October 16, 2018. However, my professional life within the realm did start until then. The Tailgate Foodie food blog was created due to a missing section of the pregame party in which true flavor and great food existed. 

Fast forward to July 2020 and the ever-so grand idea to truly bring flavors to the parking lot festivities was hatched. Through the wonder of will power, The Tailgate Foodie, LLC was created. With 5 of the most flavorful seasonings to start, we were on our way. 

Fast forward another 4 years to now. We have been “Bringing Gourmet To The Parking Lot” for 4 years and expanded our premium seasonings and bbq sauces exponentially. Our BBQ, grilling, and smoking game has went from a hobby to a profession to an obsession. That is where our book (and soon to be book series/line) come in! 

Sharing our obsession with the world is HIGH on our priority list. Whether it is our seasoning line, our bbq sauces, our soon to be realized bloody mary, or our books, we want to share our knowledge with you so you too can “Bring Gourmet To The Parking Lot”. 

A Future...History?

We decided early on, we are a flavor company. No matter what the product is that we are creating it has to be flavor packed and balanced. No flavor note should take over.

We also decided that we wanted to be more than just a BBQ company.

While BBQ is a mainstay within our groups, we want to do it all. We want hot sauces. We want bloody marys. We want snacks. WE WANT PIZZA!

And that is what our furture...history is all about. Creating a true "flavor company" not tied down to one place, but being part of many!
