TNG – Tailgate N’ Go

tngRon, Taylor and Kobe Johnson seek a Shark to invest in TNG – Tailgate N Go – their portable kitchen in a box, in Shark Tank episode 1103. TNG is the result of a question Ron asked his daughter Taylor while she was preparing for a family cookout at a local lake. Taylor had all her tailgating supplies in six or seven different bags and she was a tad unorganized. That's when he asked “where's your chuck box?”

A chuck box is where campers store ALL their cooking supplies for preparing a meal on the go. It comes from the “chuck wagons” of the old west: the wagon that was the trail “kitchen” on a cattle drive. Modern day chuck boxes are generally designed to fit into an automobile or truck.

That question inspired Taylor to create TNG with her dad and brother, Kobe. After six prototypes, the family came up with the chuck box to end all chuck boxes. Each TNG model has cutting boards, condiment holders, a knife magnet, storage nets and racks and more. There are attachments that turn it into a complete outdoor kitchen, too. You can add a griddle, a grill, a single burner stove, small sink and a cooler to the TNG. There's even a swing out trailer hitch so you don't have to lift it and can access it from both sides.

There are two models: the TNG at $1650 and the Outlander at $1550. They also ell numerous accessories to trick out your TNG chuck box. They likely want a Shark to help them with production and distribution. Will a Shark want to dine on this modern chuck wagon?
