    Chili, Soup, & Stew - category

    So in the winter I find myself not being in front of the smoker and grill as much as I would like (I know I know, shoot me). That being said I still enjoy cooking and love a good chili, soup, or stew during the cold months. That being said I haven't ventured into this area of cooking too much but was wanting to try some things out this winter and looking for a good exchange of information.

    I was hoping that there may be some other pitmaster members that would be interested in this area of conversation and that it may become a sub category of the "Recipes and Techniques" forum if there was enough interest. Hopefully to share some recipes and techniques as well as competition info and such.

    I know there are some little BBQ competitions in my area that are also hosting chili cook offs at the same time and some people are attempting to compete in both.

    While I prefer to hangout in the "Pit" I would still appreciate any good online resources etc... that anyone may have to offer or have some experience with in regards to this (especially competition chili).

    Would anyone else like to see this become a sub category?


    I'd enjoy that


      w0nq , are you just looking for info as well or do you cook competition chili cook offs?

        Nope, just a fat dude who likes to eat

      yes, chilli recipes would be much appreciated


        I'm in for this. I've been making chili for 40 years. My recipe has gone from simple/traditional to complicated, and back to simple (but completely different).

        The great thing about chili is that there are so many ways to make it, and they all taste different, yet they all taste like chili. One of my favorite oddball recipes calls for cubed beef, no beans, no tomatoes, and it uses caraway seeds and sesame seeds along with the standard chili spices of cumin, chile, garlic, and onion.


          Great idea. Done!
