If there is any consolation to summer’s end, it is football’s beginning. When it comes to that most American of traditions—tailgating; it makes no difference if support a college or professional team or both. Tailgating traces its roots back to a Princeton vs. Rutgers game in 1869.


Tailgates have become such elaborate affairs that some entertain through the entire game. It’s all about the food, drinks, and flying the fan colors.

Each year, there are inevitable lists of “best tailgating cars” and the Kia Sorento, Sportage, Sedona and Soul have all placed. With spacious cargo areas, they are well suited to handle a smorgasbord.


To kick off the season, we thought we’d share a Korean recipe that is certain to be the hit of your next tailgate.

3 lbs chicken wings
2 T canola oil
1 T sesame oil
1/4 cup Korean BBQ sauce
