Super Bowl Party, What are you Cookin?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Super Bowl is coming time to plan a party, what are some of your favorite things to serve? (please include some recipes)

Right now I'm thinking of:
  • Hot Chicken Wings (not a football party without hot wings)
  • Veggie Platter
  • ABT's "Atomic Buffalo Turds" or Stuffed jalapeno wrapped with bacon, cooked on bbq
  • Chips & assorted dips & salsa
  • Smoked BBQ Ribs
  • Maybe some smoked Kielbasa
  • Chili Con Carne or Smoked Pulled Pork
  • Chips & assorted dips & salsa
Does anyone have a recipe for Smoked Shrimp? would replace one of above if I found good recipe for Smoked Shrimp.


1st time I ever made Hot Wings I nailed it, they were some of the best wings I had ever tasted, that computer died, and the recipe was lost. For the past couple of years I bought a bag of frozen wings from the restaurant where I worked, and served with Franks. I no longer have access to the commercial wings. I am member of Sam's Club and Costco, can someone recommend a frozen wing brand? Sam's has Franks so no problem there.

Buffalo wings made the original way, deep fried and dipped into franks hot sauce and butter. Smoked walleye (my brother in law just brought me 4 he caught last weekend) stuffed mushrooms (btw the BBQ pit is in the middle of a 4 foot snowbank :lol: ). 4 kinds of sliced cheese and 2 kinds of summer sausage, misc crackers, chips dips, a veggie platter and whatever the company brings.

All sounds great, especially the Walleye. I have never had Walleye, being a calif. dude. However, I love to fish, and used to go ocean fishing almost every weekend. Kept a 18 cubic ft. freezer stuffed with fish, ate fish 3 or 4 times a week. Haven't done much fishing, only freshwater since we moved. I used to smoke, tuna, yellowtail, bonita.

Enjoy your super bowl party!

Smoked shrimp can be tough - quite literally. They can also be pretty good. If cooked too low and too slow shrimp can turn out rubbery. I'll suggest marinating them in some lemon juice, olive oil and minced garlic for 20 - 30 minutes before threading onto skewers and then slapping them onto the hottest area of your smoker.

One thing I like to fix for parties is pretty simple, involving mostly prefab ingredients. Brown about a pound of ground beef with a bit of diced onion. Drain some of the grease then dump into a crock pot. Add a small can of diced green chiles, a jar of salsa of your preferred heat level, a couple cans of cheddar cheese soup - stir together, let it all get hot and dip in your chips, tortilla wedges, celery sticks, Snyder's Pretzels, whatever.

Try not to dribble too much on your Terrible Towel.

Yeeeeeeeee...HAW

Crazed party enters planning stage...

Our daughter who lives in Picksburg (you have to be there to understand this) and her two kids are here for a visit and we had a big family reunion including our older son and his family, with an eye peeled at the NFL playoff, which ended very well. The family feast was pretty good, too.

As we carry the wine bottles to the recycle bin, we are getting ready for the all-time tailgate party. :crazy:

Funny, none of the family had the slightest interest in professional sports until our daughter was transferred from SanFran to Pittsburgh, where they found the entire population was Stillers-crazed, and fell into it themselves. We've spent enough time visiting to get sucked into this as well.

Our youngest granddaughter brought her #7 Rothlisberger jersey to wear,and we ler her wave our Terrible Towel during the game. It worked. :D

Well, all this kind of defies explanation, but if you have some tailgate-party suggestions, I'd be happy to have them.

Mike :crazy:

What? No Imp and Iron? That's a shot of Imperial, a really cheap gawd awful whiskey followed by a can of Iron City beer. Apparentlyit was a popular barroom combination among the foundry workers back when the Steel City was actually the Steel City. Of course, who am I to speak, I was drinking mostly Chardonnay during the game while working on my spaghetti and meatballs. I do hear that there was a good sized Italian population in the area back then, so I guess that was an appropriate meal to fix.

Anyway, something I did a couple of weeks ago was breaded chicken fingers. Instead of the usual bread crumb coating the slices of chicken breast were rolled in moderately coarse ground almonds, courtesy of judicious pulsing of the blender. It could be an interesting twist on a popular favorite that the family might enjoy.

Oh, and since the Cardinals beat the Eagles, I guess we will be watching an actual Super Bowl and not just the Pennsylvania State Championship :lol:

"...back when the Steel City was actually the Steel City."

Funny you should mention that-

Our youngest son was in the industrial valve business for ten years, travelling the country to collect used valves, shipping them to Houston to be rebuilt and sold. He worked with heavy stuff, and helped tear down several steel mills in Pittsburgh to salvage the valves. :o

He's visited our daughter there along with us and, as we travel up and down along the rivers, he will point to a shopping center, a condo complex, and other nice developments and say, "I tore down the steel mill that was there."

It's a much nicer town now. We have a coffee-table book titled The Valley of Work which consiste of lavish copies of a hundred and fifty years' of painting and photographs of Pbgh and environs. There's nothing but smoke, fire, soot, clouds of steam, and virtually no sunlight in any of the pictures. They were iron men in the Steel City.

I'm starting to plan the super Bowl tailgate. Thanks for the suggestions.
