Tums Tailgate: Iraq Vets

  • A dynamic duo of Iraq vets serve up spicy sausage and pulled pork!
  • What's your pre-game pow wow look like? Show us and it could be featured on air!

'Tis the season for football fanatics to dream of college bowl games and NFL playoffs! This week, we headed to Houston, Texas to follow the tailgate style of two war veterans. Their friendship started when they both were stationed in Iraq and needed a football watching buddy! The pair have been back in the states since 2007. They've kicked their football tradition up a notch--serving up spicy sausage and pulled pork at Texas Longhorns' tailgates.

Can you beat that that recipe? Bring it on! Each Saturday and Sunday, HLN's “Weekend Express” is profiling some of the best food and fun surrounding your favorite college and NFL games. Send us original photos and videos of your favorite recipes, outfits, set-ups and more and they could be featured in the weekly “Tums Tailgate” segment.

If you are on Instagram or Twitter, just use the hashtag #TumsTailgate when you post photos. Or after the game head to to upload the pictures.
