RIDGEWOOD, N.J., Sept. 7, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- The football season is here, and along with it the quintessential American pastime: tailgating. It used to be just burgers and beer before the game, but these days it's become a much more elaborate affair with fans spending thousands of dollars on grills, chairs and even fancy canopies. But most of us know that the key to a really great tailgating event is good friends and food.

Enter David Joachim, the "grill master" for the American Tailgaters Association and the author of 3 grilling books, including the new definitive guide to outdoor cooking "Mastering the Grill," who offers up some great ideas to bring to the stadium parking lot.

"The key is to plan ahead, take advantage of super-convenient products, and take it up a notch with some interesting -- yet very simple -- recipe ideas."
