On Sunday there were 35 cooks and we didn't even make final table. The winner on Saturday didn't make final table Sunday either, it's frustrating that way.
I have even cooked and turned in two exact same pots of chili before and got two completely different results. It just don't make any sense.
I have to just keep reminding myself it's for charity and it's about having a good time and not about the prize.
The wife had fun and I had fun because she had fun. It's good to get out and be around good folks doing good things for a good cause.
You can see in the far left bottom of the picture, on the table, that is my new inverter. It ran our spice grinder and big fan all weekend. Folks were coming by, pointing and saying "We need to do that". That's what happens when you bring a prepper to a chili cook off.
I plan on making a portable power pack with a solar panel to recharge the battery so I can have power where ever I am at. I know they sell them but I want to make one.
Next, we will be in Wichita Falls Texas trying it again.
Enjoy your day,
