Default Chili help

One of my sponsors has asked me to cook a chili cook in their home town to help the local school. Told them I'm a Pit Master but will give it a try for them. Now who has a brisket chili recipe that will make me look good?

5 lbs shredded brisket
1 large white onion chopped and sauted
2 large hot peppers chopped and sauted
2.5 28oz cans diced tomatoes
2 16oz jars chunky pace
1 pack of shelbys (basic spice and both cayenne)
Additional cumin and chili powder to taste
1 stout beer
2 16oz jars of water

simmer an hour

(option) smoker w/ hickory for 1 - 2 hours.

(option)4 habs makes hot and fruity.

Serve with cheese, sour cream, chives, green onions, fritos, whatever you want.

The nice feature of this recipe is it's really 'assembly' and less hard core cooking. You only have to chop the onions and peppers. Other than that it's open and pour. Perfect for cooking in a school cafeteria, etc and it scales very well because of the packaging numbers. Brisket can easily be premade and shredded. I've had many people eat this and say it's the best they've ever had.

Recipes from Past CASI Terlingua International Chili Championship Winners...

My favorite is Cindy Reed's, the only two time winner.

Also, if you're using already cooked brisket, I'd start with about 25% ground beef initially for flavor while everything's cooking together, then add the brisket for the last 1 1.5 hours of the simmer.
