TALE GATING 101. You have to be at the ball park to have a true“Tail Gate Party”. Ms. Goofy and I had everything ready to go. We were on our way to the’ Oakland A’s versus the San Francisco Giant’s” pre-season game. Everything was ' Mise en place'. We are having Chicken Wings with Chipotle Honey Barbeque Sauce and Bacon Wrapped Asparagus. Everything is place and lightning strikes. The weather threatens and the sewer backs up. I will spare you the details. We had to salvage the day. We stayed at home , cooked our appetizers and did not pay 10 dollars for a beer. These two appetizers are the bomb. I hope you give them a try.

1. 3- 5 pounds of wings
2. Rub (‘Wild Willy’s Number One-derful Rub)
3. Chipotle barbeque sauce

Barbeque Sauce
¼ cup honey
¼ cup cider vinegar
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1/ 2 cup chipotlle puree
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt & pepper
Place all ingredients in blender. That’s it.

Rub your wings with rub and barbeque over medium heat. When they are almost done, coat with barbeque sauce.

1. 1 pound of Asparagus
2. ¼ pound of bacon thinly sliced. (I am lucky to have Schinken Speck) or Prosciutto
3. 1/8 cup lemon juice
4. 1/8 cup Olive Oil
5. 1 pinch of salt & pepper
6. 1/8 cup of Parmesan cheese
Take 3 Asparagus Spears and wrap 1 piece of bacon around the spears. Take a skewer and secure bacon and Spears. Place in pan and marinade with rest of ingredients for at least 1 hours.

Place Asparagus bundles on indirect heat for 10 minutes. It does not take a lot of time.
We did not make the game but we sure scored some runs with the Crackerjack Appetizers!!
