Two gallons sounds about right. Tiny taster bowls?

I'm cookin in the lot. What's the fun in having it pre-made?

I suggest one rule: No road kill.

Define Road Kill. How long can it be setting on the road before the rule kicks in? If I hit it myself is that road kill or fresh game?:cheers:

I'm lucky that I have the "Chipeta Cottage" with a full kitchen. Mine will simmer all night long, sorry to be cheating but someone's got to do it...
Your not the only one with a full kitchen :)

I am of the opinion, and chime in if youre with me, that whatever YOU may define as chili is fine. I mean this should be all in goood fun right? I mean after all, if I were to apply myself too much it just wouldnt be fair, I AM a professional.:rofl: But seriously, I think it would be great to just have everyone go willy nilly(is that my grandma talking) and just make what ever, when ever, how ever they want all those in favor?

I agree, Chili is such a regional thing that there is no sure definition. I would think that as long as no one gets sick that all is good. Hotter than hell is also acceptable although I would recomend a caution sign.

:flame::flame::flame:You mean a "this will hurt a lot more at the other end" sign? :flame::flame::flame:

Or perhaps just put a fire extinguisher out in front of the pot of chili so that everybody gets the message?

Maybe a lifesize photo of FROGEYE destroying the protected species cactus with too much chili onboard?

Oh, this could be so much fun.:lol:

Fatbob doesn't do Texas Chili. Only good old New Mexico Chili Con Carne.
New Mexico style cooking is my all-time favorite. FROGEYE will have a difficult time topping that. It sounds as if the gauntlet has been tossed and FROGGY's honor is at stake.

Chili is a serious thing.

Do you add beer to the chili, do you add coffee? What is the best "secret" ingredient? A lady I know made the BEST chili and her secret was filet mignon another guy I know used prime rib and the juice was added to the chili (killer) + mild poblano (sweeter and a bit hotter than Anaheim chilies). It wasn't a hot chili, it was just delicious.

The secret ingredients are legion, but they are key to the variety and taste of the chili. I even know a guy that added sugar to his chili. I thought he was nuts, but the chili was delicious.

Then the issue of beans/no beans - con carne or meatless?

I'm looking forward to tasting - can I be a judge? The Moderators as judges?

You can make it so hot that it has no flavor. The hard part is what is hot to one person is not to another. I make mine the way I like it, if it's to hot or mild that's the way it is. I don't really want to have a contest, just enjoy cooking and the fun that goes along. :cheers:

I used to make it really hot back in the day. But after so many "it's too hot" complaints, I've toned it down and am now focusing on flavors.
Froggy, forget about everyone else and make it the way I like it! ....isn't it all about me? I'll vote for you, you know I LOVE your chili!!!!

Sorry guy's, I just couldn't resist bringing this back! I don't think enough folks saw it the first time! ENJOY!!

THIS IS SOME KIND OF CHILI CONTEST!

If you can read this whole story without tears of laughter running
down your cheeks then there's no hope for you!

*Note: Please take time to read this slowly. If you pay attention to
the first two judges, the reaction of the third judge is even better!

For those of you who have lived in Texas, you know how true this is.
They actually have a Chili Cook-off about the time the Rodeo comes to
town, it takes up a major portion of the parking lot at the Astrodome.

The notes are from an inexperienced Chili taster named Frank, who was
visiting Texas from the East Coast: Frank: "Recently, I was honored
to be selected as a judge at a chili cook-off. The Judge #3 called in
sick at the last moment and I happened to be standing there at the
judge's table asking for directions to the Budweiser truck, when the
call came in. I was assured by the other two judges (Native Texans)
that the chili wouldn't be all that spicy and, besides, they told me I
could have free beer during the tasting, so I accepted".

Here are the scorecards from the event:

Chili # 1 Mike's Maniac Mobster Monster Chili

Judge # 1 -- A little too heavy on the tomato. Amusing kick.

Judge # 2 -- Nice, smooth tomato flavor. Very mild.

Judge # 3 -- (Frank) Holy ****, what the hell is this stuff? You could
remove dried paint from your driveway. Took me two beers to put the
flames out. I hope that's the worst one. These Texans are crazy.



Chili # 2 Arthur's Afterburner Chili

Judge # 1 -- Smoky, with a hint of pork. Slight Jalapeno tang.

Judge # 2 -- Exciting BBQ flavor, needs more peppers to be taken
seriously.

Judge # 3 -- Keep this out of the reach of children. I'm not sure
what I'm supposed to taste besides pain. I had to wave off two people
who wanted to give me the Heimlich maneuver. They had to rush in more
beer when they saw the look on my face.










Chili # 3 Fred's Famous Burn Down the Barn Chili

Judge # 1 -- Excellent firehouse chili. Great kick. Needs more beans.

Judge # 2 -- A bean less chili, a bit salty, good use of peppers.

Judge # 3 -- Call the EPA. I've located a uranium spill. My nose
feels like I have been snorting Drano. Everyone knows the routine by
now. Get me more beer before I ignite. Barmaid pounded me on the
back, now my backbone is in the front part of my chest. I'm getting
****-faced from all of the beer.





Chili # 4 Bubba's Black Magic

Judge # 1 -- Black bean chili with almost no spice. Disappointing.

Judge # 2 -- Hint of lime in the black beans. Good side dish for
fish or other mild foods, not much of a chili.

Judge # 3 -- I felt something scraping across my tongue, but was
unable to taste it. Is it possible to burn out taste buds? Sally,
the barmaid, was standing behind me with fresh refills. That 300-lb.
***** is starting to look HOT . . . just like this nuclear waste I'm
eating! Is chili an Aphrodisiac?





Chili # 5 Linda's Legal Lip Remover

Judge # 1 -- Meaty, strong chili. Cayenne peppers freshly ground,
adding considerable kick. Very impressive.

Judge # 2 -- Chili using shredded beef, could use more tomato. Must
admit the cayenne peppers make a strong statement.

Judge # 3 -- My ears are ringing, sweat is pouring off my forehead and
I can no longer focus my eyes. I farted and four people behind me
needed paramedics. The contestant seemed offended when I told her
that her chili had given me brain damage. Sally saved my tongue from
bleeding by pouring beer directly on it from the pitcher. I wonder if
I'm burning my lips off. It really pisses me off that the other
judges asked me to stop screaming. Screw those ********!









Chili # 6 Vera's Very Vegetarian Variety

Judge # 1 -- Thin yet bold vegetarian variety chili. Good balance of
spices and peppers.

Judge # 2 -- The best yet. Aggressive use of peppers, onions, and
garlic. Superb.

Judge #3-- I **** myself when I farted and I'm worried it will eat
through the chair. No one seems inclined to stand behind me except
that slut Sally. She must be kinkier than I thought. Can't feel my
lips anymore. I need to wipe my ass with a snow cone.





Chili # 7 Susan's Screaming Sensation Chili

Judge # 1 -- A mediocre chili with too much reliance on canned
peppers.


Judge # 2 -- Ho hum, tastes as if the chef literally threw in a can of
chili peppers at the last moment. I should take note that I am
worried about Judge #3. He appears to be in a bit of distress as he
is cursing uncontrollably.

Judge # 3 -- You could put a grenade in my mouth, pull the pin, and I
wouldn't feel a thing. I've lost sight in one eye, and the world
sounds like it is made of rushing water. My shirt is covered with
chili which slid unnoticed out of my mouth. My pants are full of lava
like **** to match my shirt. At least during the autopsy, they'll
know what killed me. I've decided to stop breathing, it's too
painful. Screw it; I'm not getting any oxygen anyway. If I need air,
I'll just suck it in through the 4-inch hole in my stomach.





Chili # 8 Tommy's Toe-Nail Curling Chili

Judge # 1 -- The perfect ending, this is a nice blend chili. Not too
bold but spicy enough to declare its existence.

Judge # 2 -- This final entry is a good, balanced chili. Neither
mild nor hot. Sorry to see that most of it was lost when Judge # 3
passed out, fell over and pulled the chili pot down on top of himself.
Not sure if he's going to make it. Poor dude, wonder how he'd have
reacted to really hot CHILI.
