We’re quickly racing towards the one special event gear heads can’t live without. The Daytona 500 is set for 2/21/16 1pm ET, and now is the opportune time to get ready for the show! Whether you and yours plan on watching the much-heralded race at home or in Daytona, you’ll certainly need an ample supply of meat snacks.

The Jerky Beer Bucket is perfect for celebrating at home or near the famed racetrack. Jam packed with meat snacks, it doubles as an ice bucket. And since temperatures in Daytona tend to be relatively high in mid-February, ice is certainly going to be a tailgating necessity. For those watching the race at home, having ice next to the barcalounger may not be such a necessity.

So, the beer bucket could easily be used to hold a great-tasting party mix. Personally, we love party mixes that include wasabi peas, cinnamon honey pretzels and cheese curds. Before adding the wasabi peas and pretzels into the beer bucket, simply melt some butter and add a bit of hot sauce. Then toss the pea and pretzel mixture into it.

Afterward, bake the coated peas and pretzels in a 250 degree oven for no more than a half hour and let them cool. Otherwise, they’ll melt the cheese curds. Then mix the three snack foods together and drop them into the empty Jerky beer bucket. They’ll go great with the Jack Link’s Jerky and Sticks. You may also want to slice up some summer sausages and Wisconsin cheeses.

And if you are going to be tailgating before or during the Daytona 500, don’t forget the grilling meats and specialty sauces too. Your racing buddies, friends and family will love you for being so thoughtful. After all, nothing softens the blow of a loss or elevates the excitement of a win like perfectly charbroiled, New York strip steaks and center cut pork chops.

Enjoy the race!
