I knew before I came to work last Friday that I wasn’t going to win this year’s cook-off. I took last year’s crown with my first ever attempt at making chili. I did what I know how – I grilled, smoked and spiced and it worked. This year I decided to bring some Ohio flava to these crab eaters. I made Cincinnati chili from scratch and brought all the fixin’s to create up to a 4 way. Those that already knew what Cincy chili is about loved it. Most everyone else was at the very least, intrigued. At the very least, I enlightened a few people and ate some damn good chili! I’m already working on my recipe for next year. Please believe, I WILL be winning that belt back!
