Food Network invades parking lot for ‘Tailgate Warriors’

Before the Buffalo Bills hosted the Chicago Bears in a preseason game at Ralph Wilson Stadium back in August, Guy Fieri of the Food Network took to the parking lot for a tailgate throwdown. Two teams of veteran tailgaters from Buffalo and Chicago squared off in a serious competition. The results can be seen on “Tailgate Warriors,” a one-hour special that will air on the Food Network on Saturday, Oct. 17 at 9 p.m. ET.

As part of the competition, each team had to create a themed menu capturing the spirit of the Buffalo/Chicago game. Teams were required to make one appetizer, two entrees, two sides and a dessert. They were judged on taste, execution and creativity. The food (and their flair) was graded by three judges with years of experience in tailgating, entertaining and eating.

(Shameless plug: One of the judges was Ray Lampe, a.k.a. Dr. BBQ – author of the The NFL Gameday Cookbook.)
