With football season rapidly approaching and tailgate parties gearing up to go into full swing, having an arsenal of recipes on hand to entertain the masses is essential. When it comes to football food, BBQ’d and grilled is always a favorite. But what do you do if you’re hosting your football party in your apartment?
