I ran across an excellent post over at Burnt Orange Nation, and decided that it would be a great idea to get a WCG perspective on things.
It's always fun to share recipes, and, while this is not my own, it is one of my favorites. I make this at least once a month during football season. Courtesy of Chef Paul Prudhomme, The Best Darned Grilled Chicken I Ever Ate!
Combine the Seasoning Paste ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Place the chicken pieces and bay leaves in the bowl and rub the pieces evenly with the seasoning paste. Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 6 to 8 hours.
When ready to cook, light the coals or prepare the grill according to directions. While waiting for the coals to reach the white-ash stage or for the grill to reach the cooking stage, bring the chicken to room temperature. Melt the butter. With a spoon, gently scrape as much of the seasoning paste as possible off the chicken, combine it with any paste remaining in the bowl and stir it into the butter.

In the meantime, what are your favorite recipes for Game Day? Any age-old family recipes you'd be willing to share? Do you cook something at the stadium that people can't get enough of, or any awesome recipes you cook in your backyard that the neighbors drool over? Feel free to drop the ingredients and directions in the comments section.
As an added bonus, the WCG staffers will cook up some of the recipes that sound the best, and report back to the community our critique.
So, what are you eatin'?!
