Please post any tailgate friendly paleo foods or recipes (preferably those that can be prepared ahead and don't need heating) - for a mid day football game.

I'll start:

-spiced nuts -guacamole (w/ raw veggies) -chicken wings

what else...

Egads, good call on the booze! I have to stop assuming that everyone travels with a flask and toddy makings like I do.

If you are truly tailgating, meat is a necessity. Pork shoulder, pork tenderloin, hamburgers, "paleo friendly" sausages, etc. can be prepared ahead of time. I would suggest a small propane grill to reheat the items covered in foil. You could also think about putting your warm items in a warm crockpot before you leave home. I've found an AC/DC converter plugged into the cig lighter in your car to be very handy for crockpot purposes.

Other than meat items, might I suggest bourbon?

Smoked salmon, or really any smoked fish. Also goes for smoked meats of any sort.

Bacon wrapped shrimp and/or scallops.

Bacon wrapped mushrooms, you can pop the stems out and fill them with something.

Proscuitto wrapped asparagus.

Caviar or salmon roe on fresh veggie slices.

Chili in a crockpot will stay warm for ev er if you keep the lid on until you start eating. I don't mind my chili a little cooler but the power inverter I got for my car is probably the best tailgating purchase I've ever made to plug things like crockpots in. Or bring one of those little Weber camping grills to keep a pot warm. A proper tailgate needs a grill anyway. Then you can do wings, burgers, kabobs, ribs, sausages, seafood...

Here is some tastiness that can be eaten by hand or on a plate. I have things that probably you aren't going to want to eat every day - but they should be pretty fun to have on game day:

  • Charcuterie: you could do an easy tray of a variety of smoked meats
  • Pickled vegetables + pickles-
  • Plantain chips, kale chips, root vegetable chips
  • Sliced roast beef and ham: make rollups out of them, fill with pea shoots, slices of avocado, pickle, greens, etc. Easy to grab and eat with hands, kind of fun.-
  • Skewers: chicken, beef, or pork. If you do a couple different marinades before grilling or broiling they'll be really tasty hand food. Beef marinated in sesame oil, garlic, ginger, rice wine vinegar. Pork rubbed with cumin, oregano, garlic, black pepper. Chicken marinated in garlic, jalapeno, fresh herbs, chili, lime juice, yogurt, an onion (whir all up in a food processor/blender then marinate the meat before cooking)
  • Herb potato salad using a lemon vinaigrette
  • A big fat chopped salad full of crunchy vegetables

And I found this that would be awesome for a sweet, scroll down and it's in the post from @sherpamelissa: http://paleohacks.com/questions/29029/chefs-paleo-chocolate-salty-balls#axzz1aVJcMSOZ
