I do several tailgates a year and that is exactly how I do it. I have done brisket, pulled pork, abts.. pulled chuckie and smoked brats. All come off without a hitch and there always a bunch of smiling faces. you're good to go.

I've done the same. I would make sure that you have some extra broth to moisten things up if needed, but this will work great. Enjoy the game!

That looks amazing! I grew up 25 minutes outside of center city Philly and Thursday nights were "cheesesteak night." Now I live only an hour and a half west and you can't get a good cheesesteak anywhere around here. Keep up the good work!

It's not ideal, but it'll work just fine. Sometimes you just make the best of what you got. Unless you can scrounge up another grill and griddle somewhere.
I'm sure they'll still be tasty and if you feed everyone enough beers no one will bat an eye. :thumb:

The lot where we tailgate for ND games doesn't allow "open fire". I usually just cook ahead of time. I put everything in aluminum pans with some sort of broth mixture and take my gasser with me to use as a warmer. Like was said...not ideal, but still pleases the crowd.

We've done this tailgate for years and pulled it off just perfectly.
The problem is that we have this little Weber Q with griddle attachment and we end up trying to cook all this meat on this little grill. In 40 degrees and wind this can take forever.
Question: What do you guys think about precooking the sliced ribeye at home and transporting it in an aluminum tin? Then reheating the meat on the little grill (at least it would be already cooked)?
Think we'd lose any flavor or texture? At least this way the majority of our time could be focused on just reheating the meat, onions and rolls.
Tailgating is my forte. I think if that is what you have to cook on in that weather then yeah you should pre cook. Tomorrow, i's have some beef broth and some oil. I'd liberally use the oil to get the griddle nice and hot and use a little broth as I heat it up. I would have some disposable aluminum pans that I would use to tent the griddle and help steam the meat as it heats. Then maybe drop a few rolls open side down on top of the meat to catch some steam and flavor and soften them as the temps will harden them.

BTW, maybe too late for you, but the best way to slice them super super thin is to freeze the steak.
