Contestants are welcome to bring 1 (ONE) gallon of pre-made chili. The chili must be served HOT so all contestants must have a source of heat to keep the chili ready for service. It will be Veteran’s Day so the spirit prize will be for the most patriotic booth. Judging will be promptly at Noon. Public tasting will follow.
Prizes will be Amazon Gift Cards Grand Champion- $100 Second Place- $75 Third Place- $50 Spirit- $100 Young Chili Chef- $100
Judging Criteria: - Color -- Does the chili look appetizing? Does it look bright and colorful or dull and bland? - Aroma -- Does it smell good? Does the aroma make you want to dig in? - Consistency -- How is the meat-to-sauce ratio? It shouldn't be runny, mushy or overly thick. - Taste -- How is the flavor? Do the ingredients blend well, or is one too overpowering? Does the first bite make you want another one? - Aftertaste -- Once you swallow, is there a spicy taste ("bite") that stays on your tongue? Is it pleasant?
