Houston Texans fans tailgate before the Texans play the Kansas City Chiefs in a NFL game on September 13, 2015 at NRG Stadium in Houston.

HOUSTON - Tailgating is a serious business in Houston, but what do hard-core superfans have to have when the Texans take the field?

From music to shelter to, of course, food, KPRC 2 viewers shared their tailgating secrets on the KPRC 2 Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages. 

Here are some of the most helpful, interesting and funny responses from our amazing viewers.

Anthony Ojeda reminded KPRC 2: "Don't forget your favorite tailgating band! Houston Texans Deep Steel Thunder!"


Whether it's a tent or a full-blown shelter like the Texans Tavern, it's a good idea to have some place to go if the sun or rain gets to be too much. 

First Aid Kit: 

While some folks said Pepto and Imodium were essential, a nurse shared a reminder than an entire first aid kit is a good idea for tailgating. 

Many, many photos of alcohol were submitted to us, as well as one-word responses, such as "beer." Chilling out with friends and a cold one – or two -- is a tailgating tradition. 

And have you seen one of these – a shotski? 


Food. Lots of food:

Gyros, fries, potatoes and guacamole were just some foods people mentioned, but we know there are plenty of other foods that make a tailgate complete, from brisket to wings.

What's your favorite tailgating food?
