This is a brilliant idea, glad to see it!

Personally I usually fire up my BBQ/Smoker about 6PM on Super Bowl Sunday. Sainsbury's do a pretty decent shoulder of pork (1KG with bone in) which I cook around 150 for 3/4 hours - wrapped in foil and my own blend of a wet BBQ sauce.

I serve that up in buns for some pulled pork burgers, usually throw a combination of cajun wings (from my local butchers) and ribs into the mix too, with plenty of sweet potato fries and nachos!!

Oh and of course, plenty of drink! I usually range from Anchor Steam to Sierra Nevada.

Anchor Steam, Brooklyn lager and Samuel Adams have entirely replaced my love for premium European lager, a day I never thought would come

As far as food is concerned (though this year for Super Bowl we're at a family member's house) - it's usually quite simple affair for me. Firedogs (get them in any supermarket) with cheese and/or bbq sauce. Some homemade burgers (easy as pie, and you'll never buy them ready made again), wings, ribs, all staple football food.

Must invest in a good tailgate recipe book before next year - though we don't have space for a smoker or anything like that I do desperately want to expand my horizons, maybe try something different for each week.

Can't see past decent IPA these days - except for Sam Adams which is the standby-staple for regular season games. Well stocked up for tonight - Large Tescos and Majestic Wines stock a whole range of decent beers.

If you like cracking American IPAs then go for 13 Guns, Easy and Lagunitas

Have to give those Firedogs a try. Never heard of them but I see they sell them in Morrisons and there's one in town.

I've never managed to find a good 'tailgate recipes' book. I bought this one a while back (Amazon) - http://goo.gl/aQRSH2 - and it's ok, not great.

Best recipes I've found worth trying are on websites - there's plenty that specialise in tailgate food.

something simple from me, Sweet Potato wedges/chips
its a tough recipe
cut up some sweet potatoes, steam, let them cool, get some mild and light olive oil and cover them in it and stick in the oven until crispy.
nice plain or with dip and much better than regular potatoes.

I do them with frylight as opposed to oil to be extra healthy......More calories available for beer!

If we're having friends over for the game I tend to make my take on frito pie. I make a beef chili and layer it up like lasagne with a layer of corn chips, a layer of chili, a layer of refried beans. Then repeat the layers again and top off with cheese and peppers. Oven bake at 170c for 20 minutes.

Donut burgers are a good treat too but I wouldn't recommend regular consumption of them unless you're a fan of diabetes. Make cheese burgers and salsa but instead of using a bread roll cut a sugared ring donut in half and brown it off under the grill and use that instead of bread. It's not as sickly as it sounds, honestly.

One of our friends is Canadian so we're morally obligated to make poutine when she comes over.
