I am retired to Texas and come up for one or two home games per year. I have walked through the tailgating areas and it all looks amazing. I hear people talking about just walking through and eating/drinking with tailgaters, but I haven't ever done that. I'm willing to pay my share, so it's not like I'm just looking for a free food. So what is the protocol for a tailgate visitor like me? How do you know which tailgaters are open to visitors and which are not? Do I need to pay? I don't want to be an unwelcome crasher, so any pointers welcome.

Find one that looks good to you and locate who you think may be the host. Then just introduce yourself and tell them you’ve been considering a grill (or some other grilling equipment they have) like theirs and you’d like to know how it’s working out for them. Yada, yada, yada, as you thank them and begin to leave they say you’re welcome to stay and hang out. ;)
