I would say tonight was a success. I managed 6th out of 7 which means I get half a crock pot of my chili to take home!!!! The one that won was decent. Plain, but with some heat, not too acidic tasting. 4 of the 7 tasted like bad soupy marinara with beans but 2 of those went for 2nd and 3rd. One was decent but too much worchestershire.
I thought briefly about offering to judge next year to hopefully sway the preferred flavor profile, but then I realized I would be forced to taste a handful of crappy examples and then have no good chili to fall back on when it was time to eat.
