Tailgating Fun With The Beer Blaster

Posted by Dave On July - 14 - 2009

Its a gun that shoots Beer!Tailgating and drinking outdoors go hand in hand. Many of us tailgaters enjoy getting outside but we also like to have a little fun while we do it. A while back I was told about a product on the market that is a squirt gun that shoots beer. You read that right. Instead of using traditional water to douse a friend on a hot day, The Beer Blaster is powered by a 12 oz. can of beer. The concept is simple but the fun can be great. Here is what you do:

1) Take a can of beer (preferably cheap beer) and shake it up vigorously.

2) Pop it into the  top chamber and slam it down so that it snaps into the gun.

3) Pull the trigger and the carbonation of the beer will propel the beer at a target from 10 feet away.

Sounds fun if you like foamy beer squirted out of a plastic toy gun. Take a look at a few videos to see The Beer Blaster in action.

Some other features of the Beer Blaster include a convenient bottle opener located on the bottom of the barrel of the gun. Also, the Beer Blaster can be ordered with a holster and a belt holder similar to The Beer Belt or the Beerdolier.

I’ll admit that when I first received the Beer Blaster I was a bit skeptical of their claim of being able to hit a target from 10 feet away. I decided to test it out for myself using cold and warm beers to see if the temperature of your ammo made any difference. Check out my findings in the video below:

If you want to get your own Beer Blaster in either blue or red, the price ranges from $22 to $30 depending on if you want just the Beer Blaster or want to add on the holster or the beer belt. For the ladies, they even have a pink colored Beer Blaster called “The Blasterette”. On top of that option they also offer The Freedom Blaster which comes in a desert camouflage motif. The Blasterette and the Freedom Blaster ranges from $24.00 to $32.00.

Special Section For Beer Pong Created

Posted by Dave On July - 9 - 2009

Playing games while tailgating is almost as big as grilling and eating. Most would agree that the game of beer pong has grown in popularity to the point that it currently ranks second behind cornhole as the most popular tailgating game in the lots. Because we have been tracking this trend over the years we thought it was about time to give beer pong its own section.

We have created a special section devoted to just beer pong where you can buy beer pong tables, beer pong rafts, customized beer pong balls, specialty beer pong cups and of course hard top beer pong tables as well. So now if you are looking to buy or just get some more information on tailgating games, check out the Buy Tailgating Games page. If it is beer pong you desire, then the Buy Beer Pong page is for you. We still have the Buy Tailgating Gear section where you will find information on tailgating grills, portable satellite systems, tailgating sunshades, etc.

No matter what your game, we hope these two sections make it easier to find what you are looking for.

Here’s a cool way to brand your hot dogs and hamburgers while supporting your favorite SEC Football team. They are called SEC Grill Toppers and you place them on your grill, they heat up and you can brand your team’s logo right onto your meat. They offer toppers for a number of different schools including Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisville, LSU, Miami, Tennessee and Virginia.

Julia Hurley went on a local TV show, Daytime Today Tri-Cities in Tennessee and was able to demonstrate what these grill toppers are all about. Check it out.

The Go Plate – Reusable Food & Beverage Holder

Posted by Dave On July - 6 - 2009

Let’s face it. Table space at a tailgate party can be at a premium. Now you don’t have to break up the game of beer pong just because you want to put down your plate and eat. Get a Go Plate that is a food and beverage holder all in one.

This plastic party tray fits right over your drink, so you can hold everything in one hand. When you set your beer down for a food run, you can lose track of it. Don’t abandon your bottle, can or cup when you can simply place one of the Go Plates on top of it. When you want to take a drink, simply lift the Go Plate off. Designed for warm or cold foods, they’re crafted from sturdy, reusable, recycled clear plastic that can go right into the dishwasher. The Go Plate was even featured on NBC’s The Today Show. Take a look.

Tailgating Gear Review: The Turkey Cannon

Posted by Dave On July - 3 - 2009

Camp Chef Turkey CannonAs tailgaters, we all love the taste of Beer Can Chicken. The only problem is getting the bird to cooperate and not fall or tip over during the cooking process. Also, once the bird is done, getting the can out can be a hassle and quite messy. But the allure of a moist, roasted chicken that has beer taste infused throughout is just too strong to pass up. I recently discovered an easier and more convenient way to cook beer can chicken using the Turkey Cannon made by Camp Chef.

Camp Chef Turkey Cannon

As you can see, the Turkey Cannon is made of stainless steel and you place the bird over the extended tube instead of placing the bird over a can of beer. Season the chicken as you normally would but before placing it on the Turkey Cannon, pour a can of beer into the cylinder. The Turkey Cannon has vent holes all along the length so that when your beer steams, the flavorful vapor will go right into the body of the chicken. This technique will keep your bird moist while slow roasting on the grill.

My wife picked one up for me for Father’s Day and I am happy to say it worked like a charm. We seasoned the bird with a flavorful BBQ dry rub and placed it on the Bubba Keg Grill for a few hours. The results were fantastic and the chicken was moist and stayed moist even when we pulled out the leftovers. We plan on smoking a turkey using the Turkey Cannon next time with hopes it will keep the bird moist as well.

You can get your own Turkey Cannon online for about 20 bucks from Buy.com or SHOP.com.
