    Miscommunications abound!

    So.
    The Y is a member of the local American legion. and this weekend past, they held their second annual (can you call it annual, yet?) Chili Cook off. and the Y entered us.
    I made my Texas Bowl of red Chili, Beef, no beans, no tomato, just what Cookie would have made on the trail (yes, he had beans available but in Texas, BBQ is Beef and Chili ain't got no beans!)

    I Wasn't feeling great so I told him, "Take some pictures for me so I can post them" I wanted you guys to see the lovely bowl of Red We had made, topped with Limed Sour Cream and fresh Salsa Verde.

    IT tasted GREAT! and the Y took pictures. herein attached. (The winner of the competition was the organizer, BTW, not me)

    so, enjoy!

    The organizer. Imagine that. Loving the cool whip “Tupperware.” Those container along with margarine were the Tupperware of choice at my grandmas house.

    Nice to see you about.

      We save pretty much all of our pint size Romano cheese tubs from the supermarket as well as Kozy Shack rice pudding and quart size yoghurt tubs. Not to mention soup containers from Chinese takeout (pint and quart.)

      I know, that's where my Tennessee half kicks in and says, "no, no it's not". I MUCH prefer pork. but Chili is beef there, too and that is a good thing.

      yeah, some folks do pork and some will even use chirizo which makes sense, but I go back to the trail cook

      it's a simple one.
      dried anchos & Pajillas, toasted & soaked
      remove flesh with a spoon. add 1/2 large onion and 3-4 garlic cloves
      some soaking water
      *** process smooth

      Bacon diced
      chuck roast (diced)
      **seared most oil drained

      deglaze with 1/4 cup AC VIn
      add stock or water
      **I add a few tablespoons of my Hot Pepper jelly here
      2-3 TBSP whole Cumin
      1 TBSP WHOLe coriander
      1 TBSP whole black pepper
      8-12 mace leaves
      ***toasted & ground
      1 1/2 tsp salt
      1/2 tsp white pepper
      Chipoptle peppers in Adobo (adjust to taste, we used about 2 oz)

      3 TBSP Nutrional Gelatin
      3 TBSP Masa Cornmeal

      All in the crock pot on high for 2 hours then low an hour or so.
      ______

      THis is designed on the simple ingredients available in cattle country, If it grows together, it goes together, and slow & rich. Notice there are no green veg or herbs in this. YOU won't have much fresh on a CHUck Wagon and not many available off season in the desert SW. It's about making a simple, spiced Beef Stew. I like to top it with Lime Sour Cream and salsa Verde (Which would be available to carry in crocks)

      If you have limes and time, you can make the lime sour cream by heating cream and adding lime juice to it. I LOVE making Lemon cheese with Milk doing this. heat the milk to 180 and add lemon juice to curdle it. WHEY would be either fed to the cows or used to make corn bread

        and remember, everything is adjusted to taste. and DO scrape out the Anchos. that ancho skin is very irritating if you forget and leave it in the sauce

        LOL! The Y Said someone 'entered' that as a joke. Please note, it is unopened.

        Meanwhile, apparently the organizing group is the local "Motor Cycle Club". I don 't WANT to win.

      If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

      Placeholder

      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

      Placeholder

      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

      Placeholder

      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!

      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

      Placeholder

      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.

      The Undisputed Champion!

      Placeholder

      Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

      Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

      Placeholder

      The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

      Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

      Placeholder

      The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

      Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

      Placeholder

      This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. 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'.

      The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

      Placeholder

      Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
