I'm bringing the heat this year for the chili cook off at my wife's work. Got 3rd place two years ago and 2nd last year. Fuck that. I want that TITLE! I am even going to "name" it after my daughter so I get the sympathy vote. All is fair in love and chili cook offs.

It's very good and spicy. I am expecting victory.

my brother in law won a chili cook-off recently. Very informal and similar to what cotton is talking about.

Remember a true chili has no beans. If its not a real competition, you can get away with some I guess. What we did is puree the beans and add it as filler. Another ingrediant we added was chorizo. It really gave the chili a great flavor.

So about 5-6 years ago we had a big snow storm out here. So I made a batch of chili and had a few people over. They loved it. So I continued to make it over the next few years and it was always a hit. So a few years ago I decided to try a chili cook off. I registered for the Wyoming State Championship Cookoff in Chugwater, Wy. I got there the night before and stayed in a little hotel with the girl I was dating at the time (she was my helper). I got up early and went to the site and there were motorhomes (from all different states) lined up and people up early getting prepared. I didn’t know people take this stuff so seriously. So I pull up in my truck and we parked and setup where available. We get setup and start cooking. People were decorating their booths, showcasing their previous awards and trophies, etc. Thankfully my chili turned out really good, which I was worried about since I making a huge batch I didn’t want to mess up the ingredient ratio. But Mike is correct, CASI rules state you cannot add fillers such as rice and beans but that was perfect because I don’t add beans anyways. But anyways there was about a 100 entries, and I got 1st place people’s choice (which was the highest honor according to the host) and 4th place with the judges!! When they are calling the awards they recognized the top 10, and start with 10, 9, 8 ect so when they get down to 5 you are starting to think that you didn’t make the podium. But I was super happy that I got 4th my first time.. and then I got the “Green Horn Award” for best newcomer chili. I took home 3 trophies which was the most hardware of anyone.

Then a year later I entered into “The Big Chili Cook-off” in Evergreen Colorado and finished 2nd with the judges. Fun times.

Good luck Cotton! Win or lose give us the outcome.

I've read that about chili and it shocked me to be honest. I've always liked a beef and bean mix with there being a 3/1 ratio more of beef. I never got the whole reasoning for it being "official" only if it has no beans. It's weird.

I've been wanting to enter my wife in one of these. Her chili is so fucking good. She does use beans, however. I've never heard of Mike's high society of chili rules! She'll fry up some bacon to chop for the toppings, and then just dump the bacon fat into the stew. Yum.

That's goddamn Texas style chili. Screw their rules. Chili requires beans.

I know. I had someone bring it up to me the other day. I just think it is absurd that some "chili group" made those rules up.

I see a chili spice pack in that photo. Rule #1 says no "just add meat" mixes allowed. Breakin the law breakin the law.

Rule 3b is interesting, cooks may be required to taste their own chili, if they refuse they are disqualified. I wonder what prompted that rule.
RIP #40
