Default Tailgate parking lots

This is our second time out to Pittsburgh to tailgate before a game. Can anyone help with parking lots that you do not have to pay in advance? Close to the stadium would be good but if we have to walk a bit that's OK. What time do the lots open and how much earlier should we be there in order to get a space? Can we bring a fire ring to cook on? or is it just grills?
We are really looking forward to the partying and game. The boyz have to get themselves together and kick some Dolphin butt back to Florida!

Thanks for your help. Can't wait to get to the Burgh!

When you say 'don't have to pay in advance' do you mean way in advance, like a season pass? If that's the case there's lots parking near the stadium just be sure to get there early.

The ones that are close, like just past the science center near Reedsdale have enough space to do some grillin' but I would bring something portable.

Check this link for more parking info. http://news.steelers.com/article/55094/

FYI the $5 lots downtown are not tailgate friendly (unless your idea of tailgating is drinking beer out of a cooler in your trunk while breathing in CO2 fumes)

How early do you suggest? Is 3:00 early enough? I looked up the 3 maps of the city. Thanks. Our idea of tailgating is setting up a fire ring, cooking up steaks, and having some nice cold beers. Not out of a cooler. We like to mingle with the crowd also.
thanks for any additional info you can give us.

The lots around the stadium are all pre sold. Parking garages are open, and they charge $20. All Alco Parking lots open at 3pm. Gold Lots 1,2,3,4 are all pre sold. Red Lot 6 is also presold. If you get there at 3pm you will find a lot to get into. They are just a little more of a walk.

Default Tailgate parking lots

My friend and I are coming in from Massachusetts so we dont know the area as well as some people I know. Perhaps you could help us.

Which parking area which allows you to tailgates and which does not? Are those area that allows you to tailgate force you to pay advance and how early do we get there to avoid the traffic?

I also have a question. I'm coming from Indiana with my buddy and our 2 boys, his is 16, mine is 7. I got tickets to the Texans(nose bleeds), hey, can't complain. Anyway, I'm looking for a place to grill, drink, play, meet fellow stiller fans. Any help would be nice.
