After almost a week of voting, the finals of the KSR Tailgate Food Bracket are finally upon us. Wings dominated Queso 73% to 27% in the semifinals, while Fried Chicken held off Sausage Balls 57% to 43%. That sets up an all-poultry championship: WINGS vs. FRIED CHICKEN. Which tailgate cuisine will reign supreme? Here’s what our esteemed panel had to say about the matchup:


WINGS: First of all, wings are fried chicken, which is why this is an interesting match-up. We’re comparing apples to apples here.

But I will give wings the nod because they’re easier to eat in a parking lot than a big ol’ piece of fried chicken.


FRIED CHICKEN: Fried Chicken in a Bears vs. Patriots 1985 Super Bowl beatdown. Wings were invented by the Soviets. Fried chicken is a Kentucky and American delicacy. Too easy. Go Chicken.


FRIED CHICKEN: You could eat a tiny piece of chicken, or you could eat an entire chicken. It’s time to make a crown for the Colonel because Fried Chicken is KING.


WINGS: Even though Nick makes a fair point about picking one small part of the chicken when you could have the whole thing, I’m voting for WINGS. Korean, Thai, chipotle, habanero, cajun, garlic or straight up buffalo, the variety of sauces gives wings the win in my book, as do accoutrements like celery, sliced carrots, and ranch. Sorry, Colonel.

    I have never seen wings at a tailgate. This final is like Outback v Cheesecake factory. Everyone loses.

    Wings at a tailgate sounds like a great idea until you actually try to find a place to buy them, then it becomes a complete hassle. Fried Chicken is perfect for tailgating. It’s convenient to find and to eat. It’s substantial enough to counter balance all the Wild Turkey or PBR you’re going to drink.

    There’s a reason KFC, Bojangle’s, Popeye’s, Church’s, et al have drive-thru windows and BWW doesn’t. It’s for tailgating. No contest.
