Much to the chagrin of tailgaters everywhere, the Margaritaville Tailgating Grill, and to a larger extent the Freedom Grill FG-50, are not completely extinct but spotting one in a tailgating parking lot is like seeing a 1956 Desoto on a road trip. We even gave these grills a proper send off when we wrote the Margaritaville Tailgating Grill Eulogy back in March of 2012. Reader Brent emailed us saying he had customized his Margaritaville Grill and wanted to share photos of it. His email said,
My alma mater has finally started a football progam and it’s off to a great start. To support my Charlotte 49ers, I’ve customized my Margaritaville Grill and would like to send you pics for your website. Where/how can I send you pics of my grill?
As you may have guessed, we were definitely interested in seeing his handy work. He sent in the photos and check it out. (Click images to see larger, detailed view)
As you can see in the above gallery, Brent’s attention to detail was unrivaled and he even customized his propane tank.
Nice work Brent and glad to see the few grills out there getting some spirit.
