From Hill Country:

“Long has it been debated if there’s a right or a wrong way to make chili. Hill Country Barbecue Market is putting the debate to the test in its inaugural Hill Country Chili Cook-off on Saturday, February 1st from 1 to 3 pm downstairs in the Boot Bar.

Local amateur teams will present their original chili recipes to a panel of judges who then will score each chili on its taste/flavor, creativity and presentation. Guests attending the event will also have the chance to vote for Fan Favorite after tasting their way around the room.

The Hill Country Chili Cook-off is open to the public. Tickets will be available at the door the day of the event for $10 (cash only), which comes with 10 tasting tickets. All proceeds from the ticket sales will benefit Cohn’s Kitchen + One City Eats.

Teams interested in entering their original recipe for the competition must register by 4:00 pm on January 17, 2014. Full details, including contest rules and the application, are available online.”

        And Hill Country co-opting your recipe and making millions off of it with no compensation to you, the winner. :|

    I’d be interested, because I make the best chili in the world (fact), but having to present an exact recipe beforehand is absurd.

    Also, good chili can be very expensive to make, so putting together 100 servings and paying a $25 entry fee should come with the possibility of a cash prize.

      Agreed, except where you say you make the best chili in the world because I do.

      Sorry for the delay in responding to this. The first place winner wins dinner for 6 ($300 value), a trophy and their recipe published in the March e-newsletter. There are prizes for 2nd, 3rd & people’s choice, as well. There are still one or two spots available, and I’d be glad to extend the deadline, Anon.
