Dusted off my old competition recipe and made some chili last night. Last time I made it with leftover pork butt but it's meant to be made with smoked brisket. Made some cornbread on the side and of course large amounts of butter to go with it.

That looks mighty fine! Did it cook longer or was it served like that?

It's a VERY ingredient heavy recipe so it ends up being chunky. Almost all the liquid content comes from the raw ingredients. I only add enough water to mix all the dry ingredients together.

No cheese? :mope: lol j/k

I make mine in a crockpot, and use 3 blocks of cheese. Usually a block each of habanero, horseradish, and pepperjack

When the leftovers come out of the fridge, it congeals up so much, you can cut it like cake because of all the cheese :rofl:

Bean is a 4 letter word. Under no circumstances will I ever put beans in my chili. It's only meant to be a filler in competition batches served to the public. Most competitions they are not even allowed for the batch served to the panel of judges.

Looks tasty Ed. I have a contest coming up next month. I do three or four a year. Each one has different types of judging and I'll tweak my recipes accordingly. Usually finish in the top two.

Nice. Good luck! I haven't done a competition in years. It was a lot of fun though. Just a ton of prep that goes into doing one. And money.

You talking about putting it in the entire batch or mixed into an individual serving? Either way, If its what you like then go for it. Just like beans. I guess.. lol
