2015 Church Chili Cook Off

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

So our church is having a chili cook off this year, and I thought I'd enter and give it a try. I've never really had that "go to" chili recipe nor have I ever tried making food in any sort of cook off. But, I figure it'll be fun. I'm using Tommy's World Class Chili as a base from this thread.

Doing a couple things different. I'm using 3# of my PP from last Sunday, 3# of my homemade bacon, and 6# of top sirloin that will be smoked to an IT of 140 and slow as possible (but within 4 hours). It'll then be cubed and browned a bit in the bacon grease before all the rest of the ingredients are thrown in a simmered. Also, I roughed chopped all of the peppers and onions yesterday and cold smoked them for 6 hours with the AMNPS and pittmaster dust. 

 

Had the smoker going, so I threw in 6 blocks of simple cheese (cheddar, pepperjack, and colby). A couple photos.

Well the chili was made last night. The wife was pretty tired and sleeping with our new born, so was watching my 2 year old at the same time cooking so the only picture I got was off 3 lbs of chopped and crisp bacon....that's a lot of bacon! I simmered it until 11 pm and then let it cool overnight and put it away in the fridge this morning. I actually added a tsp of homemade habanero dust another member of SMF had made and was kind enough to send me. 

 

The chili is amazing and has a nice warming spice. It barely fit in my pot. I'll be sure to get more photos of the event and plated chili tomorrow.

Nothing wrong with a picture of a pile of bacon! Good luck with the competition!

Thanks for the support. I'm looking forward to it.
