For many people, food just seems to taste better when cooked and eaten outdoors. And with the boom in tailgate parties before sporting contests and other events, outdoor grilling is more popular than ever. In fact, more than three in four Americans own an outdoor grill or smoker, according to recent findings by Mobile Research. For those who enjoy tailgating, many companies produce grills that are easy to transport and use when away from the comforts of home. To choose a tailgate grill that is perfect for you and your guests, first consider whether you prefer to cook over gas, charcoal, or wood pellets.
