Wildcard weekend is upon us, and while it may look different than in past years, that doesn't stop us from wanting to cheer on our favorite team, the Buffalo Bills, to victory!
 

While fans have been allowed back into Buffalo Bills Stadium, tailgating has been banned in the stadium parking lots. Many people have decided to in-home tailgate. No matter what size gathering, these terrific football inspired recipes are sure to be a crowd-pleasing hit!

Go Bills!  :cheer2:

while other people bitched about 1PM game for other reasons, i hate it from the food perspective!!!!

 

Saturday at 1..will have people over at 10 for a home style southern brunch...eggs benedict , but made with sausage gravy and biscuits with eggs on top!

 

Then boatloads of Genny Creams...i am always way to wound up to actually eat during the game. 

 

By 4:30 will need food as wife will be telling me its 4:30 and I already had way to many beers!!!!!!

Well, I made legit beef on weck last year for Houston, so I'm not doing THAT again........

 

I'm thinking why mess with success, and perhaps just some wings? Go out, fill a growler at 10am, have my oil hot by 12, get R done by 1, and hopefully hit Rivers many times in what is going to be a COLD day for the colts.

May do a slow cook during the game and eat afterwards.

The early game Saturday sucks for food.  If it were a Sunday at least, I'd have the day before to prep.

I’ll have to post the Texas brisket oven roast recipe that I’ve made a few times. If you don’t have a smoker...it’s the BOMB! I’ll try to post tomorrow. I’m half schnockered right now and tomorrow is a busy day for me. But I’ll try. It’s worth it. Traditionalist will scoff, but again, if you don’t have a smoker, this brisket recipe/technique is the bomb.

Anyone else remember those cooking videos Kiko Alonso did with Campbell’s soup the year he was on IR when he played for us? I was going to post them in this thread for a laugh but I can’t find them on YouTube 

 

edit: Found them

BTW, i actually started using some Liquid Smoke in some things...for instance the marinade i use on chicken before o briase and use in gumbo. And don't listen to @LeviF91, gumbo made in Hammer Lot is awesome...he is just an idiot!

Texas Oven-Roasted Beef Brisket

Total time: 4 hrs. 10 minutes Active: 10 minutes

Yields 10 servings

Ingredients
2 tablespoons chili powder (feel free to add about 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper to give this a bit more of a hot kick)
1-tablespoon salt (the original recipe called for two Tbsp., but we thought that was too salty)
1-tablespoon garlic powder
1-tablespoon onion powder
1-tablespoon ground black pepper
1-tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons dry mustard
1 or two bay leaves, crushed
4 pounds beef brisket, trimmed – but leave on a good amount of fat on the outside (about 1⁄4”)
1 can of Campbell's Beef consommé and about 1⁄2 cup water OR (1 1⁄2 cups beef stock)

Directions
Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit
Make a dry rub by combining chili powder, salt, garlic and onion powders, black pepper, sugar, dry mustard and bay leaf. Season the raw brisket on both sides with the rub. Place in a roasting pan and roast, uncovered, for 1 hour.

Add beef stock and enough water to yield about 1⁄2 inch of liquid in the roasting pan. Lower oven to 300° F, cover pan tightly with aluminum foil (tent it to keep the foil off the meat), and continue cooking for 3 hours, or until fork-tender. (NOTE: Campbell's beef consommé is the bomb)

Trim the fat as desired, and slice meat thinly across the grain. Top with juice from the pan.

Believe me, it’s good. Really good. If you don’t have a smoker, this’ll do you pretty well. 
 

The pan juices are the real deal too. 
 

This is a shortcut for sure, but it works very well in my view.

I’ve made it about three times now. It’s always turned out well. Thing is, mostly it’s just the wife and me these days, and that’s a lot of meat to have hanging around.
