    When's supper? I love chili and make it a lot. Now that I have a nice smoker, I'll be doing some testing and I'll definitely be trying what you did there. Nice work

    Ever try a wendy's style chili with lots hamburger and no beans? Make your typical batch but without beans then split it in half and add the beans for your wife.

    I was going to say the same thing about leaving out the beans. But that chili does look mighty fine just the way it is.[​IMG]

    I love beans and that chili looks fantastic. I thought I'd just state the obvious and suggest a winner winner chili dinner.

    Well I did try some . made sure I didn't get any beans . It had more of a kick to it then i thought it would. think next time I will made my own without beans and the wife can have her with beans.

    Very Nice smoke! I like beans but in chili don't fill it full of them because they are cheap. Wendys chili is nothing but beans and a couple crumbs of a hamburger dropped on the floor.  Same as a Taco Bell Burrito Supreme, they load it down with paste beans and no meat!

    Beans and cornbread is a different story, or Garbanzo beans my wife makes with pork meat,,,damn, very good!

    Oh really? Woops, I've never actually had chili from a restaurant! I just saw a Wendy's commercial and I thought, wow, that looks like beef soup/chili w/no beans. Apparently that's why they call those, "Commercials"!

    The past couple years I've been making my chili with a lot of burger and a fair amount of small cubed steak. I just love to have a small piece of steak in every other bite!

    What a great meal the chilli looks wicked i will love a plate or two.
  15. That chili looks great! I don't use as many beans and sometimes no beans, I haven't tried it with PP, added to the list. I do add small chunks of elk meat in addition to the elk/pork burger. Awesome job.

    Looks good to me?

    Chili wars at my house.  Beans VS no beans?

    Why the problem?  Good chili is good chili.

    Let the flame wars begin!  [​IMG]

    Good luck and good smoking.
  19. My wife has a phobia of hamburger. She has to make two batches of chili with and without. Same with spaghetti sauce and anything else with hamburger.
