Posted by coltsindianapolis on November 9, 2013 – 6:11 pm

The Colts and Indiana Pork have partnered in search of the best pork tailgate recipe in all of Colts Nation, and guess who is in charge of it? Yours truly! We’re going to be searching for the best pork tailgate recipes you have to offer and naming a winner before every home game. This week’s  winner is Kyle Carmichael from Greenwood, Indiana. Kyle’s recipe is a unique approach to an nontraditional tailgating dish. Now this will take some prep work, but there’s nothing wrong with starting the smoking process the day before while you’re watching  college football, then finishing it off on Sunday. This is a great meal to spice up your tailgate as we start to get into the colder months.
