Ladies State Chili Championship (CASI) Cookoff -
Howdy ROOoooOooOoOooooooo (CASI) Cookoff- New Chili recipe! 163 cooks! Regional Championship! Spots 1 - 5 are automatic Terlinqua qualifiers! Beautiful weather! Scary trees!
Seiously scary trees... that is what was over my head while I was cooking....
Spent some time with some old cook friends from both BBQ and chili.
Oh yeah, Jon competed in BBQ...
Seriously, this is getting old. But Mama Sue came in second and a friend stopped by to hang out for a bit so that was wonderful!!
I tasted the leftovers when I got home and realized I didn't have enough salt in it. Ok let me retry this ....
Sarge Bell and Rory Martin Memorial (Tolbert) Cookoff - I love rolling out of bed and going to a cook off thats just a few miles from my house!! Just a lazy feel to the day yay!
We rolled in at about 815 am. Jon was cooking ribs or I would have gotten up much later or gone to the gym first lol. And another perfect weather day.
We registered and started setting up.
I cooked my chili as usual. Jon cooked his ribs and one of his bandmates came and hung out with us for the day.
Awards ceremony about 5 pm and Jon took third in ribs!! Yay Jon!
Then they announce the chili sigh. First place is automatic qualifier for Terlinqua "behind the store" and there were enough competitors for second through tenth to get points. I don't know how many there were but enough apparently.
10th place chili-not me.
9th place chili-not me
8th place chili - not me
7th place chili-not me
6th place chili - not me
5th place ch.... wait a minute.... go back one... 6220?? Is that what he called??? Oh sh&^ that IS me..lol
Yup, I got sixth place in chili and even beat out a past Terlinqua champion or two. Can you hear the angels singing?? Oh that's me sorry lol
And if you are wondering what is the difference between CASI and Tolbert AND Terlinqua and Terlinqua "Behind the Store"...I will explain it all to you in my next posting!
Next cookoff is in Blanco TX...until then..... come one...let it out.... its time...
