Chili Cook Off & June Challenge Winners

By admin | In Challenges, Events and Announcements | on July 12, 2011

We’re counting down to our first ever Chili Cook Off this Saturday post WOD at 12pm, which will give you time to shower up and pick up your chili before you head over. Brian and Anna have generously offered their place which is less than a warm up lap away from the gym. We have 5 entries so far and are in need of at least one more judge, even though Jake signed up twice to judge (hoping for double portions!). There will be a cash prize for 1st place so come on out and throw together your favorite chili recipe or help pick out the blue ribbon best. Judging will start promptly at 12:30pm so don’t be late!

If you’re stumped for ideas, google paleo chili recipes and you’ll find a smorgasbord of inspiration! Use them as a starting point, but try to put your own spin on it. There will be categories for overall taste, aroma, originality, and aesthetics (will consider others, so post to comments!).

Several sites have posted about the “official chili cookoff rules” as put forth by the International Chili Society (ICS), and it’s interesting to note that “Real (competition) chili contains no beans and is made from a combination of chopped or ground meats, liquids, herbs and spices including red chili peppers, otherwise known as traditional red chili or Texas red chili.”

If you’re interested in entering or judging, please post to comments!

Also we haven’t formally announced the June Challenge results yet! The winners of the RKC KB Snatch Test are: Holley (131 reps @26#) and Brian (111 reps @53#)! Congrats guys! Well done!
