Over the past two years since we have started customizing these tailgating grills, there are a few grills that stick out and are truly exceptional. This Notre Dame Tailgating Grill is one of them. Take a look.
As you can see from the above photo gallery, this grill is quite a bit different than others we have done in the past. The fact that the grill lid and basin were customized to replicate the the golden helmets worn by Notre Dame football players sets it apart from any other we have done. Because both of those areas get hot once the grill is in use, we had to use heat resistant paint that was rated up to 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit. (Of course, the grill would never get that hot but we wanted to ensure the paint would stay on and would not chip or flake while grilling and tailgating.)
This grill was customized for a reader of ours who lives in Campbellsville, Kentucky who makes the nearly 350 mile trek north via I-65 to South Bend for every home game. For a tailgater with that much dedication, you know we had to go above and beyond the call of duty and put a little extra into this grill.
