Blue Tornado Tailgating Brunswick Stew Recipe

Tailgate Bites



Tony Gabbert Headshot“My family loves to host our Friday night tailgates at McCallie. Nothing pleases us more than to have a whole bunch of people show up, socialize, and have a great time. The key to a successful tailgate is having great food! While I spend a lot of time grilling at the events, this particular recipe receives a lot of praise and feeds a lot of people.” – Tony Gabbert, East Brainerd
