Chili Cook-off

As so many people appear to be soooo into "pot stirring" I was thinking that a good use of these skills may be to have a chili cook off.




I know MY chili is pretty fantastic, I'm sure quite a few others think theirs is the cat's meow as well.

So... I'm thinking that chili is a GREAT thing to eat in the fall and am thinking that perhaps planning for around the end of October would be good.

The "where" is a bit more of an issue... what area would be best (and equally fair on the fares for everyone's travel)? Indoor somehow? Outdoor with some camping type pots to heat the chili over public grills?

First, apparently you missed the "equally fair for everyone's travel" part.

Second, you need to think outside the box.

I'm thinking it is MUCH easier to transport ingredients and empty pot rather than a pot of MADE chili. Yes, I understand that many (and in the case of a cook off most if not all) will want to pre-cook beans and whatnot. In these cases, that's exactly why Tupperware and the like was created.

Even so, wouldn't it be more fun () to rent a camp site or some such and those for whom chili is a many-hour process can head up the day / night before and share ghost stories and drinking choice beverages around the campfire while the chili is cooking cowboy style over a fire?


Yes, I know, grandiose daydreams I have. I DO think it would be a blast though.

Re: Chili Cook-off

In case you could use any or all of them, here are the official rules of the Chili Appreciation Society International (CASI):

I. CHILI COOKING RULES

A. CHILI COOKED ON SITE - All chili must be cooked from scratch on site the day of the cookoff. All chili must be prepared in the open (no cooking in motorhomes, etc.).
1. CHILI COOKED FROM SCRATCH - "Scratch" is defined as starting with raw meat. No marinating is allowed.
Commercial chili powder is permissible, but complete commercial chili mixes ("just add meat" mixes that contain premeasured spices) are NOT permitted.

2. NO FILLERS IN CHILI - Beans, macaroni, rice, hominy, or other similar ingredients are not permitted.

3. SANITATION - Cooks are to prepare and cook chili in as sanitary a manner as possible.
a. INSPECTION OF COOKING CONDITIONS - Cooking conditions are subject to inspection by the head judge or his/her designee and CASI Referee. (Failure to comply is subject to disqualification.)

b. COOKS MAY HAVE TO TASTE THEIR CHILI - At the discretion of the head judge or CASI Referee, chili cooks may be required to remove the lids from their chili cups and taste their chili before turning in for judging. (If a contestant refuses, his or her chili will be disqualified.)
B. ONE CHILI PER COOK - Each head cook is responsible for preparing one pot of chili that he or she intends to be judged and turning in one judging cup from that pot. No more than one judging sample can be taken from any one pot.

C. COOKS MUST SIGN NUMBER SLIPS - Chili cooks must sign their secret ticket slips in ink with their first and last names at the time cups are issued. A cook will not be eligible to win (place in the top 10), if their secret ticket is unsigned when presented. NOTE: Cooks must present their signed secret ticket to win.

D. PROTECT THE JUDGING CUP - Once judging cups have been issued, each head cook is responsible for his or her judging cup. Cooks must not remove or tamper with the ticket on the outside of the cups. Any marked or altered cup must be replaced prior to turn-in or it will be disqualified. (See Page 2, Sections A.4 and 5 for cup replacement.)

E. FILLING CUPS - Cups will be filled ¾ full or to the level designated at the cooks' meeting.

F. CHILI TURN-IN - Chili will be turned in at the place and time designated at the cooks' meeting or as otherwise designated by the head judge.

G. PYROTECHNICS - No chili contestant may discharge firearms or use any pyrotechnics or explosives at a chili cookoff. Contestants discharging firearms and/or using explosives or other pyrotechnics will be disqualified from the chili cookoff.

H. PENALTIES - Failure to comply with CASI rules will result in disqualification of an individual cook for the cookoff. Decisions of the official(s) are final. In case of disqualification, the CASI official monitoring the cookoff will immediately notify the head cook and give a reason for disqualification. In the event disqualification of a cup of chili occurs after judging has started, it is not necessary that the cook be located or given an explanation for the disqualification.

Well, they take this stuff pretty seriously around these parts. A more relaxed set is probably in order for an event in CH.

NO BEANS?!?! Not so pleased with that rule, but totally in agreement with regulation G.

I make chili with my class of preschoolers and kindergarteners every year for Thanksgiving. Not exactly the traditional menu, but we like it! We also make our own butter and cornbread muffins. It's pretty great. And I put a full 1/4 cup of chili powder in and they *all* eat it! It's amazing how when children cook something themselves, they almost automatically like it!

Anyway, great idea Peg A! Three cheers for chili!

Re: Chili Cook-off



Texas Chili Cook Off

Old, but still fun




INEXPERIENCED CHILI JUDGE


Notes From An Inexperienced Chili Tester Named FRANK, who was visiting
Texas from the East Coast: "Recently, I was honored to be selected as a
judge at a chili cook-off. The original person called in sick at the last
moment and I happened to be standing there at the judge's table asking
directions to the beer wagon, when the call came.

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 ONE: A little too heavy on tomato. Amusing kick.

JUDGE TWO: Nice, smooth tomato flavor. Very mild.

FRANK: Holy shit, 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 ONE: Smokey, with a hint of pork. Slight Jalapeno tang.

JUDGE TWO: Exciting BBQ flavor, needs more peppers to be taken
seriously.

FRANK: Keep this out of the reach of children I'm not sure what I am
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 ONE: Excellent firehouse chili! Great kick. Needs more beans.

JUDGE TWO: A beanless chili, a bit salty, good use of peppers.

FRANK: 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 shit-faced from all the beer.
__________________________________________________ __________

CHILI # 4 BUBBA'S BLACK MAGIC

JUDGE ONE: Black bean chili with almost no spice. Disappointing.

JUDGE TWO: Hint of lime in the black beans. Good side dish for fish or
other mild foods, not much of a chili.

FRANK: I felt something scraping across my tongue, but was unable to
taste it, is it possible to burnout taste buds? Sally, the barmaid, was
standing behind me with fresh refills; that 300 lb. Bitch 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 ONE: Meaty, strong chili. Cayenne peppers freshly ground, adding
considerable kick. Very Impressive.

JUDGE TWO: Chili using shredded beef, could use more tomato. Must admit
the cayenne peppers make a strong statement.

FRANK: 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 a 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 rednecks!
__________________________________________________ ______

CHILI # 6 VERA'S VERY VEGETARIAN VARIETY

JUDGE ONE: Thin yet bold vegetarian variety chili. Good balance of spice
and peppers.

JUDGE TWO: The best yet. Aggressive use of peppers, onions, and garlic.
Superb.

FRANK: My intestines are now a straight pipe filled with gaseous,
sulfuric flames. I shit 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 ONE: A mediocre chili with too much reliance on canned peppers.

JUDGE TWO: 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 Number 3, He appears to be in a bit of distress as he is
cursing uncontrollably.

FRANK: You could put a grenade in my mouth, pull the pin, and I wouldn't
feel a damn 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 shit to match my
damn 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 LESTER'S LAST OF THE RED-HOT LOVER'S CHILI

JUDGE ONE: A perfect ending, this is a nice blend chili, safe for all,
not too bold but spicy enough to declare it's existence.

JUDGE TWO: This final entry is a good, balanced chili. Neither mild nor
hot. Sorry to see that most of it was lost when Judge Number 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 Yank, wonder how he'd have reacted to a
really hot chili?


Doc.

Re: Chili Cook-off

I agree...Texaner may not like to hear this, but there IS chili outside of Texas, and some of it uses beans. Though I love the primo, beanless stuff in TX, too...;-)

Re: Chili Cook-off

Hooray! I'm glad to see it's not such a kooky idea after all and a few folks are interested - at least in the eating part if not the cooking.

I'm also glad to see that my imagination isn't necessarily so far off from a "real" cook off... cooking it there.

So far as "the rules" go (thanks Texaner!), I was thinking that IF we get into this, maybe the first year to be more for fun instead of judging and getting so into the rules part...

Of course, with some chance to scope each other out and the different chili styles (I do use beans and am a bit picky about the beans used.. but beanless is alright also), perhaps next year we can get actually "serious" about it with judging and figure out prizes and such.


September also is alright timing. October I had in mind because it should be plenty cool out by then and less chance for flies and mosquitoes... it had nothing to do with my b-day, honest!

I'm pretty good with ideas, less good with plans... if we really want to do this, perhaps a few of us could put our heads together and figure out the where, when and how of it all.
