Welcome the perfect chili dog to your tailgate, via Washington, D.C.

Food blogger Daina Falk (daughter of renowned sports agent David Falk) just published a cookbook of her favorite tailgating dishes. From rookie recipes to legendary snacks, entrees and desserts, The Hungry Fan’s Game Day Cookbook has a winner for every sports fan out there.

Jeff Green is a fellow Marylander and such a great guy. He is one of my favorites of my dad’s clients and also one of the first that was in college when I was. Jeff is a big food fan like I am, and when I asked him what his favorite sports food is, he quickly replied D.C.-style spicy half smokes served with potato salad and honey barbecue baked beans. (I think someone used to frequent the classic D.C. spot Ben’s Chili Bowl.) Here you have Jeff’s half smokes recipe. Per his advice, serve these with potato salad and my BBQ Baked Beans.
