I've Got Zak's Back Chili Cookoff

I've Got Zak's Back
Chili Cookoff


1st Place Green -

1st Place  Showmanship - 5th Place Red

A beautiful Colorado spring day in the 70's made for great chili tasting weather at this event which benefited the Zak Kissel Fund.  Held Saturday May 19th, this "Event from the Heart" brought hundreds of people, young and old out to enjoy the day's festivities.

The sound of live music was shared with the aroma of Cumin, Onion, Garlic, Chili Powder and all of the other things that make up Texas Red and Green Chili.
With a Silent Auction, Family Bike Ride, 25 mile Bike Ride (for the serious peddler, and Kids activities, there was something for everyone.  The event was held at Lefthand Brewery, one of the premier "microbrew" breweries in the country.  The Chili Cookoff and other events brought hundreds of hungry spectators to this beautiful Colorado setting.
The Chili Cooks and all of the Volunteers were treated to "complementary" pints from the onsite brew pub.  Many a cook took advantage of this.  In fact after the event was over, the owners extended the "cooks special" into the night.
By mid-day, the attendees from all over enjoyed and devoured the selections of red and green chili and ensured that even the largest of chili pots were bone dry.
Steve Lee and his Warriors of the Crimson Pepper claimed the Showmanship Crown for the day.  Steve also picked up a first place win in the Green Chili Category.
Lyman Wilkinson, The Colorado Pods own Great Pepper, picked up a 3rd place win.  His wife Linda took 4th, Son in Law Robert took 2nd and his daughter Christi took home 1st Place.
Hey Lyman - Want to let us in on what the family secret is?
