Got what it Take to Be Immortalized as Kingsford’s Tailgater of the Year?

September 17, 2013


Coach Carl will judge the Ultimate Tailgating Party

If there were a Tailgating Hall of Fame, Coach Carl would be among its first inductees.

A backyard griller since grade school who dreamed of nothing more than to someday join the parking lot pros, his legendary game winning recipes not only kept friends, family and fellow fans on their feet all game long but also earned him a record-breaking three “Tailgater of the Year” titles during his storied career.

Today he can be found drawing up plays along the sidelines of tailgating events across the country, while constantly in search of a successor to his barbecue sauce stained throne.

Think you’ve got what it takes to beat him at his own game and walk away as the 2013-14 Kingsford® Tailgater of the Year?  Simply click here and upload a photo of your Ultimate Tailgating Party for your chance to win the highly coveted tailgater title as well as four tickets to a College Football championship week game and a life-sized statue of themselves*.

Coach Carl will pick eight finalists over a four-week period beginning August 27th from which the public will select this year’s king or queen of tailgating!

To help kickoff your ultimate tailgating party, here’s Coach Carl with 8 Rules for Game Day:

* There’s NO PURCHASE NECESSARY.  Sweeps open to legal US/DC residents 18+, and ends 10/11/13. Void where prohibited.  Check out the complete rules, prize descriptions and details at
