Chili Cookoff, Sunday, January 27

Traditional Chili is defined by the International Chili Society as any kind of meat or combination of meats cooked with red chili peppers, various spices and other ingredients.

The rules and regulations for the ALVA 871 Chili Cook Off are as follows:

  • All contestants must sign up on the sheet provided in the Rathskeller. There is no entry fee for contestants.
  • Entries are limited to 15 contestants.
  • Contestants will be assigned a random number on the day of the cook off.
  • A $5.00 tasting fee will be charged for non-contestants.
  • Contestants should use a large Crock Pot to transport and serve their chili.
  • Due to space constraints, contestants should heat their chili prior to coming to the club. Chili that must be reheated at the club is the responsibility of the contestant.
  • If MSG is an ingredient in your Chili, you must notify the coordinator at drop off.
  • Judging will be based on the following considerations:
    • Flavor
    • Texture of the meat
    • Consistency
    • Blend of Spices
    • Aroma
    • Color
  • The decision of the Judges is final. No Appeals!!!
