So last night was the first time I ever participated in a chili cookoff.
I remembered having a chili a long time ago and set out to find a recipe for it.
Italian sausage and pineapple chili.
Won The People's Champ award and runner up from the judges.
Feel like being the first chili handed to the judges hurt my score because they were doing a ranking system instead of points.
Which as a side poll, should the judges be given a second taste if they request it?

Anyway, here is the chili

I bet that was good. There is a place for sweet in chili. And the pineapple certainly provides that.

Thanks for posting the recipe, but the last sentence doesn't make sense.

My wife was the conference manager at BCC during their recent chile cookoff . if you've never been to one you need to try it. there is more types of chile than you can imagine but after the event you will not want chile for several months


When I need expert advice I tend to talk to myself

Sorry.
If you are cooking on low, don't add the pineapples until the last hour or two.
If you are cooking on high, don't add the pineapples until the last 30 minutes to an hour.
This maintains some of the pineapples texture and doesn't make them real mushy.
You can add them all in the beginning and the chili will still be good, but they will be extremely soft and cooked down.

The only chili cookoffs/contests I've ever done have been for fun/charity and I don't really care about the judging. I figure they are all probably pre-determined.

Won two over the years, but never lost a single one cause I got to cook, hang out with good people, eat great chili and drink a bunch of beer.
