Football. Tailgating. Chili. Three words that are often spoken simultaneously this time of year. The act of tailgating is very old indeed, with roots dating back to the civil war. Spectators would pack picnic baskets and lay out blankets to view the battle. Sounds dangerous and slightly crazy, doesn’t it! Chuck wagons were the next to resemble the modern day tailgate. Wagons were outfitted with a kitchen and the chuck wagon cook provided food to weary travelers and cowboys on the trail.
