Wings & brats ready to be eaten!

Sometimes our food needs to have a little alcohol in it...

As a major college football fan, I know all too well  that our favorite teams have given us huge highs & depressing lows at this point in the season. From winning the big game too almost losing the easy one, this is the moment in the season that we could all use a shot.

But instead of breaking out the alcohol, why not just add it to what we have on the grill?

Introducing my new Tequila Lime Wings recipe! Cook these bad boys over some hot Cowboy Charcoal and you will be able to enjoy next Saturday whether your team wins or loses.

Because in the end, good food and great drinks make us all winners!
