Nobody watches the Super Bowl on an empty stomach, and that’s not about to change this year. Get your shopping list ready for the year’s biggest football game by checking out Bradley Smoker’s essential eats for game time!
Smoked Pork Spare Ribs
Fire up the Bradley smoker Sunday morning and smoke up a rack of barbecue ribs for game time! They may be a bit messy and take your eyes off the game while you’re eating them, but gnawing on a mouth-watering rack of ribs like this is certainly worth it! Don’t let another Super Bowl pass you by without making some ribs.
It would be unpardonable to omit guacamole from the Super Bowl essentials list, but there are a few out there who just plain don’t like avocados. You can change that. Try this delicious recipe that uses tomatoes, onions, cilantro and limes to its advantage. It gives guacamole dip a whole new kick, and will have your friends serving up more at every commercial break.
Smoked Chicken Wings
Chicken wings are the go-to food for Super Bowl Sunday. We’re not sure how it all came about, but we’re cool with it. Don’t do it the lazy way and order take-out. Good chicken wings are made at home with fresh ingredients. Smoke, grill, roast or fry them with your favorite seasonings and sauces, and you’re sure to win the hearts of all your amigos.
This is one dish that you can conveniently get out of the way ahead of time and keep in the slow cooker until serving time. Adding a little pork will give your BBQ baked beans a delicious flavor, and a little extra substance! Serving the beans in a small Dixie cup can be a convenient way for guests to help themselves and contain the beans. Check out the recipe here.
Also known as sugar pups, these make wonderfully tasty finger foods that are ideal for parties and entertaining. They have a sweet and tangy flavor and are fun to dive into. The BBQ sauce you choose plays a crucial role in the taste of the sausages, so be sure to choose a common favorite! Everyone has a different way of preparing these, but the easiest would be using a slow cooker. Just be careful not to overcook them!
Veggie platters work great at Super Bowl parties because they offer a variety of cool, crunchy side dishes to go along with the meats and other hot foods. For example, celery goes really well with chicken wings. But that’s not all, the ranch dip also goes great with hot wings and it’s something you can customize. Add barbecue sauce to the ranch sauce to make a great dipping sauce or to spread on your sliders! Check out this ranch dip recipe.
Perhaps the best part about Super Bowl food is having a good variety of finger foods so that everyone is satisfied. To some, a shrimp platter like this will hit the spot like nothing else will. The dish may not even make it through the first quarter of the game!
We usually associate football with tailgating, and that means one thing, and one thing only – hamburgers. The trick here is to make the hamburgers on the small end, because not everyone wants to commit themselves to a whole hamburger when there are so many other delicious things to try. Meet the slider. It’s a smaller “bite-size” burger that will satisfy anyone’s burger cravings, and still leave them wanting more food! We recommend grilling the patties rather than frying them.
Buffalo Chicken Dip
You can dip bread, veggies or chips in this awesome buffalo chicken dip which makes it the perfect party food. It’s a great way for people to clean up leftovers by giving them something tasty to dip in! Did I mention that it’s downright delicious? You can spice things up by adding some jalapenos or your favorite hot sauce. Check out this recipe.
Since Super Bowl Sunday is an all-day event for many people, popcorn is the perfect snack to have around for people to enjoy, whether they are preparing food, setting up extra chairs, decorating, or just loafing around waiting for the big game to begin. It’s always nice to have something light and fluffy to munch on. Popcorn is considered a healthy snack food since it’s low in calories, so eat all you want!
Wherever you’re watching the Super Bowl, we hope you enjoy the game, commercials and above all else, the food!
