    Chili - Beans or No Beans

    Weather finally dropped here in Texas so everyone is making their yearly start of fall/winter chilis. So, the question at hand. Do you put beans in chili or not? My family puts all kinds of beans and some corn to add sweetness. Love to here the forums thoughts.

    Taking My Brisket Chili to the Next Level

    I am making smoked brisket chili for an upcoming Super Bowl Party. In the past I have made smoked brisket chili by just replacing ground beef with smoked brisket. That time I don't think I had enough meat, so I intend to add ground beef with the smoked brisket. I am planning on cooking it all...

    My wife is leaving me, and going to Mexico tomorrow. Don’t worry, she will be with my daughter and will hopefully be coming back. I’m crossing my fingers for her return. So, in my lonesomeness, I decided to invite some friends over for a chili dinner. I started out yesterday by smoking a...

    Chili & Lime Pork Loin Sous Vide....

    So... I loved my SV pork loins so much, I decided to do another hunk. This time, I seasoned it up with Chili Powder, a bit of smoked salt and for a twist some Oregano. The book calls for 149 degrees for 6 hours. So trying that. I'm thinking about getting some Pinto Beans and cooking them into a...

    Pulled Chuck Chili

    We had our annual New Year's Eve Chili Cook-Off at church tonight. I had 2 lbs of smoked chuck leftover from my chuck tacos, so I decided to use that in my chili. My 8 year old heard the word "competition" and wanted in. She's insanely competitive and started working on a recipe about 3 months...

I've read both smoke the meat first then add it or get a big metal pot and smoke the actual chili low and slow. Anyone have any good recipes/experiences they would like to...

    Chile's Chipotle Chile

    Participating in a Chile Cook Off today. I'm using a variation of my 'Chile's Chipotle Chile' which I've done very well in past cook-offs. Over the decades it has placed and/or won various categories. It is constructed as a very meaty chile. But it easily adapts itself to suit many tastes, so...

    Hey everyone! I got a chuck roast that I wanna smoke this weekend in my WSM 18. I have a pretty good idea of what I *want* to do - but this will be my first attempt at what I'm doing and I don't really know if it's something I * should* do: Smoke chuck roast, to shred it - maybe cube depending...

    Smoked chuck chili

    Chili is one of our favorite comfort foods, especially when it is cold. We like it both ways so always make it two ways: Chuck roasted in a pellet cooker for 1.5 hours Meanwhile dried beans, a variety of dried chiles (stemmed and seeded), diced tomatoes from the garden, cumin, thyme, salt, and...

    Chili with Sirloin and Smoked Brisket (No Beans)

    Last year I made a fantastic chili with top sirloin and leftover smoked brisket. It was a (only very slightly) bastardized version of a recipe I had stumbled across on the interwebs; my modifications were essentially the addition of diced fire roasted tomatoes and some tomato paste, plus some...

    What's better for chili?

    I plan on smoking either a brisket flat or a chuck roast to put in a chili? What do you think is better? What temp should I cook them to for cubing (don't want shredded). Any other advice for using a smoked meat in chili? Thanks
