An Award Winning
Chili Recipe

Everyone thinks they have the best chili recipe around, but this one has won a number of local chili cook offs. Why? It's delicious and it's unique, using both ground beef and smoked pulled pork.

My wife and I have been tweaking it and improving it for over fifteen years.

It is thick and hearty, and...well....just dayum good!

It also has two "secret" ingredients that we will reveal for the very first time. As always, I have also created a video that takes you step-by-step through the cooking process. It also includes a brief (and interesting) history on the origins and growth of chili here in the United States.
