The summer season lends itself as a time for the scent of deliciously grilled food in the air and nothing drives our kids crazy like knowing we are grilling up some chicken fajitas! With a little prep in the kitchen you can transport your dinner table to any outdoor venue using the Blackstone Tailgater grill. Because of the collapsable legs, it folds down and even comes with a carry case to make transportation easy to take along to the park (one of our kids favorite destinations), the game, or the beach.
One part grill, one part griddle and one part burner-direct cooking, the Tailgater portable cooking station makes it simple to grill burgers while griddling onions and bacon, or remove the grill box and use the burner beneath to pan fry, pot boil and more. On our Blackstone Tailgater like to use the griddle to sizzle up our fajitas!
This recipe is our family favorite and even spices up a backyard party.
