It’s the time of the tailgate. The big games are back, and it’s all about gatherin’ with your friends, making your fantasy draft picks and cheerin’ on your favorite team. What goes best with a tailgate? BBQ, of course. Here are four smokin’ recipes handcrafted by Sonny’s Pitmasters that are sure to score you some big points.

1) Brisket Burnt Ends

Now here’s a fan favorite. Our Pitmasters take juicy Burnt Ends and coat them in a sweet and smoky glaze made in just three steps. Once you’re on the field, get ready to send in your second string, because these delicious bites are sure to go quickly.

2) BBQ Chicken Lollipops

Time to bring the kids into the huddle. Take Chicken drumsticks, smoke ’em, and then baste ’em in Sonny’s Sweet BBQ Sauce. Don’t forget the dipping sauce too. Your younger fans won’t be able to get enough of them, and they’ll soon be a new game-day tradition.

3) Smoker Barrel Nachos

Nachos and tailgates are always a touchdown. It’s a known fact. This tempting tower piles tortilla chips, brisket, tomatoes, beans, jalapenos, cheddar cheese and sour cream. It’s easy to stack and an even easier game-time decision.

4) Loaded Hot Dog

This is not your average hot dog. Wrapped in bacon, topped with juicy vegetables, melty cheese and Sonny’s Smokin BBQ Sauce, this Loaded Hot Dog offers barbecue goodness in every bite.
