An electrical outlet will be available for each entry and a crockpot is recommended. Spoons and cups for use in serving chili to the general public will be provided. Condiments will not be provided

5. Each contestant must cook a minimum of four (4) quarts of competition chili.  A portion of this chili will be submitted to the judges

6. Each contestant will be assigned a “contestant number” by the scorekeeper and be given a container in which their chili will be collected for official judging.

7. Judging will be based on score cards which are numbered. 50% of the final tally will be from judges score cards. 50% will be from scorecards from “people’s choice.”

8. There will not be an area for cleaning of dishes.


In this competition the chili will be blind judged (no one knows the identity of the cook) and scorecards will be based on the following five characteristics:

1. Texture: The texture of the meat shall not be tough or mushy

2. Flavor: The chili should have good flavoring

3. Consistency: Chili should be a smooth combination of meat and gravy not too thin or too thick

4. Spice and taste: Blending of the spices and how well they have permeated the meat

5. Color: The submitted chili should look appetizing

There will be a People’s Choice ballot box for people to score the chili. Scorecards will be collected at the end of the judging and tallied and that score added to the final tally.

BrewHound will provide the cups and spoons for sampling chili and containers for your competition chili submission.  *

Power will be available to keep crock pots hot

There will be an overall winner & a most creative winner but remember the theme is SAVORY!  

Tickets will be sold for small cups tastings of the chilis and votes will be cast.
