To make the sauce, melt the butter over low heat in a shallow dish. When the butter is melted, add the garlic and brown sugar. Stir until the mixture resembles caramel. Drizzle over each green bean bundle.

Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 35 minutes. Serve at tailgate in a warming tray or crock pot placed at low temperature. You also may cook these on the grill, careful to keep away from direct heat to avoid flare-ups.

Cut bacon into 4-inch strips. Wrap one piece of chicken and a small onion slice with bacon and skewer. Repeat with beef.

Place skewered meats in separate plastic containers and refrigerate. Take to the tailgate stored in an ice chest.

60 fresh jalapeno peppers

2 pounds pork breakfast sausage

32 ounces cream cheese

Brown sausage in a skillet, drain and cool. Mix sausage with cream cheese.

Cut tops from peppers and core out seeds.

Using a butter knife, scoop and stuff cheese mixture into each pepper. Place into a plastic container and take to the tailgate in an ice chest.

Place peppers in a stainless steel pepper tray, so that they cook standing upright. Place tray onto a hot outdoor grill and cook until peppers begin to brown on the bottom and the cream cheese bubbles. Once someone tries these they will come back for more.
