    I won the Chili cookoff

    I finally won the Chili cook off at my work. I've been trying for years. This year, I used Malcom Reed's Smoked Chili Recipe. I pretty much stuck to his recipe, with the only changes being I made my own spicy sausage using A.C. Legg Hot Pork Sausage Seasoning, and I substituted New mexico hot chili powder for the cayenne. Also, I used prime chuck since our local Cartwright's had it on sale. I think the win was for the execution of his recipe; I did it over a couple of weeks step by step using the freezer in between.
    There were 8 contestants and about 30 judges. I got 16 votes, second was 10 votes, third 4 votes... so, a pretty clear win. The second place also used smoked meat and it was really good.

                              The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                              The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                              the good one grill

                              The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                              Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                              Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

                              The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                              Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

                              The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                              We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5" x 29.5" footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.
