If you’re an NFL fan, you probably eagerly await the start of a new season so you can stand out in a parking lot, drink beer, grill food, and yell at rival fans for hours before kickoff. Normally, you do these various activities in the parking lot surrounding your favorite team’s stadium. But, due to limited capacity (and some teams not allowing fans), you’re going to have to do all of that in your backyard or driveway.

But, fear not. Even though you might not be venturing to Orchard Park, Foxboro, Arlington, or Santa Clara this season, you can still get the full tailgate experience at home. To help you out, we came up with a guide so you can remember all of the important things you need to eat, drink, and do to feel like you’re standing in the middle of a snowstorm, munching on lighter fluid-drenched chicken wings, and chugging cheap beer instead of sitting in a lawn chair a few feet away from the comfort of your living room. Check them all out below.
