My wife went to school in Oxford, not too far from Cincinnati. She also swears by Skyline chili. She makes the chili with the spices and cocoa. Not only is it one of our family faves (five way with vermicelli rather than spaghetti ), but it is great for chili-dogs if there is any left over.
The other Cincinnati favorite is Goetta (sorta like an oatmeal scrapple using pork). I plan to make some of that and cold-smoke it some day soon.
