1st Place Green Chili
Red Chili - 2nd Place
Warriors of the Crimson Pepper rose to the
occasion for this event and did not disappoint.
This was a fantastic first year cookoff - with many more
years ahead of it.
There were plenty of cooks on hand for
the cooks party the night before. As dawn broke and the sun climbed into
the sky, the chili cooks donned their ceremonial garb
and prepared to do battle.
This is a great cookoff to
attend if only to see old friends and cooks that don't
always make it down to the Colorado events.
Additionally, there is always a good abundance of Music,
Beer, Vendors etc...etc.. Temperatures were
in the high 80's, so most of the hungry attendees were
hot...inside and out.
The judges all agreed that this was
the best tasting batch of chili's that this event had
ever seen! That's saying a lot. They also all agreed that these were
some of the hottest chili's that that they had ever
tasted. With two preliminary rounds for
Red and two for Green the judges may have worked as hard
as the cooks!.
With long lines at every
cook's tent the attending public got a taste of some of
the best chili in the world. A bit of a rain
shower towards the end of the day cooled off some of the
folks, but did not dissipate the crowd. Most of
them held out to see which chili cook would prevail.
When it was all over the
Warriors of the Crimson Pepper walked away with 3
All in all, a great day for the team!
