Chef Dennis Stukel at the Bavarian Bierhaus is sponsoring a Chili Cook Off on February 5th 2019.
The chili cook off is open to the public. It is from 6-9pm in the bar, judging will take place at 7pm (must be in by 7 for entry). It includes complimentary buffet as well as sampling of chili. There will be 1st , 2nd and best in show winners.
Brandon Styll will have an excellent spread for us and the speaker will be the food fanatic Ed Butler, at the March gathering which will be on the 11th at Mere Bulles in Brentwood.
Here is the information for the barbecue sauce competition. It is sponsored by Nicks Famous Bar-B-Q, a company that Rick Kahre has owned with his business partner for 7 years. There will be 2 categories and a grand champion prize. 1 entry per category only, sauce needs to be premade, no onsite cooking.
1) Red sauce barbecue, traditional or not, but something in this category.
2) Alabama white sauce, Carolina mustard sauce, or something original.
3) Grand Champion or best in show.
The same sauce could win two awards. There will be points for originality, presentation, practicality, and taste. On a 100 point scale. 40 points for taste 20 points for originality 20 points for presentation 20 points for practicality
I saw a watermelon based barbecue sauce in Kroger years ago that exploded in the jar. A local weatherman created it and thought it would be a hot seller. Practicality - 0.
The competition will be held at Mere Bulles. The judges will be Ed Butler, Brandon Styll, Sir Russell Pyles. I don't want it to be a popularity contest.
Prize money. Red sauce $100, Original category $ 100, and best in show $ 200.
