Tailgate Party - 10 Seasonings for Brats, Burgers and BBQ

This American tailgate party tradition is more than just hanging out in a stadium parking lot! It’s about getting pumped for the big game, kicking back with great company and serving up a vast assortments of finger-licking good food.

The time to pack up the cooler, load your vehicle with chairs and barbecue food before meeting up with family and friends to head to the game is rapidly approaching.  In the midst of the crowd and all the excitement comes that moment we all wait for - the time to fire up the grill for the tailgate party. 

While you more than likely have your own go-to BBQ food staples, we want to help elevate the flavor and turn your typical tailgate party into a home-run. Don't settle for plain frozen burger patties or store-bought brats when you can be the MVP of the season by making your own crowd-pleasing burgers, wings, and sausages at home.

To highlight the spirit of the tailgating experience, we'd like to share some of our top choice BBQ seasonings that will help kick start your tailgate taste buds. 

1) No. 281 Tailgater Bratwurst Seasoning

This bratwurst seasoning blend brings the ultimate tailgating experience straight to your mouth. Just the right blend of salty and tangy with a hint of onion flavor. This is a must-try for any sausage maker who is also a hardcore tailgater. Don't be afraid to put your own spin on it: try adding some finely chopped onion to the mix and make your tailgate party brats, the very best! Dare we say, it could even be better than a ballpark brat!

2) No. 680 Bacon Cheeseburger Bratwurst Seasoning

How clever are we? We've taken the flavors of a juicy, smoky bacon cheeseburger and put it in a bratwurst seasoning blend for you to stuff into your very own tender brats. Packed with our special blend of spices, garlic, onion and natural butter flavors. Add some smoked bacon and high-temp cheddar cheese to the mixture to take this german sausage to the next level. This one is sure to have fans returning to your grill for more!

3) Mac & Cheese Brat Seasoning

Can you think of anything better than your favorite childhood meal encased in a brat? We sure couldn't, which is why we made our Mac & Cheese Bratwurst seasoning with creamy cheddar cheese, butter, and real noodles (no boiling required). A flavor your whole family will love, add in extra high-temp cheddar cheese or bacon and jalapeno for an extra kick of flavor to your german sausage.

4) No. 687 Sriracha & Onion Bratwurst Seasoning

We transformed the taste of sriracha sauce and packed its full-intense flavor into brats seasoning that is sure to blow your mind. Take your taste buds on a trip to Thailand with this blend of spicy red pepper, tangy hints of vinegar and garlic, sweet notes of brown sugar and of course, onion. Sriracha fanatics may want to make a few batches, but keep in mind, this one is not for the weak of palates.

5) No. 678 Sassy Honey BBQ Bratwurst Seasoning

Don't be fooled by "honey" in the title. We call this one sassy for a reason. It may seem sweet, but it packs a slight heat. We've combined the flavors of sweet honey, brown sugar, tones of onion and garlic, natural smoke flavor and our very own blend of spices to give this seasoning a little kick. Just the right amount of sweet and sassy when seasoning bratwurst.

6) No. 296 Bacon Ranch Bratwurst Seasoning

We took an old-time favorite and put it into a brat seasoning. This blend contains the perfect balance of creamy ranch and smoky bacon flavors. Take one bite and experience a mild blend of savory spices, smooth buttermilk, and natural hickory smoked flavors. If you enjoy anything with the combination of bacon and ranch, you need to try this one! 

7) Beer Brat Burger Seasoning

If you're from Wisconsin, beer is a necessity for tailgate parties and barbecues.  We know how well the tangy carbonation of beer partners with brats and burgers and this burger seasoning is no exception. We've taken that tangy beer flavor and made it into a burger seasoning that is simply perfect for your very own home pressed burger patties. No more need for soaking! Simple mix the seasoning in with your ground meat, grill and serve! Voilà!

8) The Backyard Better Burger Seasoning

Inspired by the famous Wisconsin butter burgers, this burger seasoning blend combines black pepper, salt, garlic with natural butter flavoring for an indulgent patty. This buttery burger seasoning blend is also great on fries, baked potatoes, veggies, and anything else you can think of.

9) Texas-Style Rodeo Rub 

They say everything's bigger in Texas, so we packed our Rodeo Rub to the brim with big-time BBQ flavor. We lassoed brown sugar, spices, and hickory smoke together to make a BBQ rub that's as good on burgers as it is on smoked brisket. Follow our step-by-step tutorial on making mouthwatering burgers from your leftover brisket trim:
