Default Chili Winner Here

Last weekend my wife and I headed to Door County for the annual Winter Festival in Fish Creek. I have been entering the Chili Comp for the lst 8 years. This year I had mixed feeelings on my entry and decided to add something. I fired up my crock pot Saturday morning in the condo and had one our freinds do some taste testing. What does it need? I asked. She said more heat. So out come the spices and I added about 4 Tblsp of Todd's Cajun Dirt and about 4 Tbsp of Frank's Red Hot Sauce. Bingo that was it. I drove my wife and our freinds down to the contest and asked my wife to take it in and sign up while I park. She did so, under her name. Well we finished 6th in the judges voting and after that anyone can pay $5 to taste test all the chili you want. You also get one vote for the "Peoples Choice". Last night we got a call from the committee and we won the Peoples Choice Award. I thought we may be in the running, as my 7 quarts of chili was gone in about an hour. So the wife gets some assorted goodies and gets to be a judge in next years comp. Now, who do I get to take my chili in next year

Congratulations Bluesman! You do know that it's Brethren tradition that you give us all your winning recipe right? I am a chili fanatic in search of the perfect chili so I must have your recipe!

P.S. If you want to break tradition and not share with everyone, kindly PM me with it.
