Products We Use
Below are some of the Equipment and food manufacturers and vendors we use in throwing the biggest and best tailgate party for the NY Jets and one of the best game day fan clubs in the NFL. These guys represent the best at what they make or sell.
Crown Verity Grills: Crown Verity is the official propane/gas bbq grill of TailgateJoe. CV makes the finest professional grade grills on the market. Some of the features that sets Crown Verity apart are full stainless steel construction using the best grade #304 stainless, high heat reaching over 800 degrees in under 8 minutes, a large number of burners providing even and precise heat, lighter tube ignition system, split gas system on grills 48in and longer from 2 propane tanks, easy cleaning with a powerwasher safe layout. If you are serious about outdoor grilling, there is no better brand than Crown Verity. Feel free to ask Joe for an up close look and demo of our Crown Verity grills at the next party.
Yeti Coolers: It gets tiring and expensive replacing coolers year after year. Cheap hinges, and even cheaper handles and latches, and thin walls of most of today’s coolers just don’t hold up to regular high capacity use. We finally got serious about storing and transporting our supplies and called the guys over at Yeti Coolers. Yeti’s are pro grade equipment, with pro outdoorsmen and guides in mind and the abuse they dish out on equipment. Some of the features setting Yeti apart from the pack include their NeverFail hinge system, T-Rex latches, DoubleHaul and LipGrip handles, and Vortex drain system. Yeti’s are built so strong with roto-mold construction that they are even bear proof.
Best Of Times Mobile Bar: What a great product! We love having our portable bar setup at the tailgate parties. We use it as a sign-in/registration area. The bar goes together quickly and is made of quality steel and roto molded plastic. This bar is perfect for tailgate parties large and small as well as home use outside on the deck or by the pool or inside in any guy’s man cave. Best of Times developed a winner with this product! Look for a review on our site soon.
Pat LaFrieda Meat Purveyor: We LOVE LaFrieda! As anyone who has been to a TailgateJoe party knows, it all centers around the food. Some of the larger tailgate parties out there are into the too loud music, or whacky characters and their schtick, we are about a great atmosphere with the best food you will find in the lot. Pat LaFrieda and his awesome burger blend and meat make that easy for us to accomplish. Our custom sized chuck/shortrib/brisket blend burgers fresh ground on Friday are out of this world. Google LaFrieda and you will see that when it comes to burgers and meat, there is nobody better.
Kelso of Brooklyn Beer: Kelso is a true local microbrewer. Kelly and the gang at Kelso are located in the heart of Brooklyn, and you will only find Kelso on tap at the better restaurants and bars in the Brooklyn/NYC area. Kelso has teamed up with TGJ to be our “Pour of Choice” on game day at our parties. In addition to serving there Pilsner, Nut Brown and other Kelso favorites, we also have brews made exclusively for us from time to time.
Esposito and Sons Pork Store: To put it quite simply, Esposito’s is the #1 pork store in NYC. Their sausage is what make’s our Italian sausage and peppers the best you will ever have.
Royal Crown Bakery: Royal Crown is a name familiar to anyone from Staten Island or Brooklyn. They are known for their incredible bread. After working with the artisan bakers at Royal Crown in coming up with the perfect hot dog bun for our 2012 first place entrant in the Great Hot Dog Cookoff, we decided have them make us our hamburger buns for our tailgate parties. These buns are picked up fresh out of the oven the night before game day at 10pm to ensure freshness.
