Search for top tailgaters stops in Green Bay

For the second straight year, Jack Daniels will be searching the country for the best tailgaters in pro football, including Green Bay.

This Sunday, prior to the Packers' home opener against the Atlanta Falcons, representatives from Jack Daniels will be in the parking lot of Lambeau Field between 9 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. searching for the best tailgate teams.

Tailgate teams will be judged on creativity, team spirit and food/drink preparation. Winning tailgate teams will be awarded a trophy and will be qualified for a trip to the Jack Daniel's Ultimate Tailgate Party in San Diego on January 24-26.

This year, renowned chef Bobby Flay and former All-Pro quarterback Phil Simms will lend their tailgating expertise to the program. Flay and Simms not only will have involvement in the tailgate search and cook-off, but will also contribute facts and recipes to a Tailgate Guide due out in the fall.

The company also developed some recipes for tailgaters. Here is one for Jack's Hot Mustard Sauce - A perfect sauce for some hometown brats.
