Default Eggbert Does Chili

Chili in an Egg? Why not? One of the Big Green Egg forums members, Egret, came up with this recipe. It's in the Eggtoberfest 2007 Recipe Book, page 24.

Cow Lickin’ Chili

Ingredients :
Olive Oil
1.5 lb ground Chuck
1 lb Italian Sausage (casing removed)
2 cups Onion (chopped)
1 Green Bell Pepper (seeded and chopped)
2 Jalapeno Chiles (seeded and chopped fine)
1-2 Serrano Chiles (seeded and chopped fine)
1 Tbs Garlic (minced)
1 can (28 oz) Diced Tomatoes and liquid
1 can (15 oz) Diced Tomatoes and liquid
1 can Rotel tomatoes
2 cans (15 oz) Pinto, Dark Kidney, or Black Beans (drained)
3 Tbs Chili Powder
1 Tbs Ancho Chile Powder
1.5 Tbs ground Cumin
1 tsp Cocoa Powder
1 tsp ground Cinnamon
2 Bay Leaves
1 tsp Tabasco Sauce
1 tsp dried Oregano
3 Tbs DP Cow Lick Steak Rub
2 cups Beef Broth
1 cup Dry Red Wine
2-3 dried Chili Peppers (chipotle, ancho, etc.) to float on top
Salt and fresh ground Pepper to taste
Wood Chunks

Preheat your Egg to 350° with inverted plate setter (legs up). Add 2 or 3 fist-sized chunks of wood to coals. Place dutch oven in the egg on the plate setter and add 2 Tbs. olive oil. Add the ground chuck and sausage (break up into smaller pieces with a wooden spoon). Close lid and cook for about 1 hour, stirring every 10-15 minutes. Remove dutch oven from egg, remove meat and drain on paper towels. Wipe dutch oven dry with paper towels. Return dutch oven to egg, add more olive oil and saute´ onions, green pepper, jalapenos, and serrano(s) until limp. Add garlic and continue cooking for 2-3 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and cook, uncovered, for about 2 hours (add water as needed to prevent drying).

Remove bay leaves, dried chiles, correct seasoning and serve.

Note: After the mixture starts to simmer, you can reduce the dome temperature to 300-325degrees.

I started out with my DO in the Egg at 350 and put in the ground beef and Italian sausage.

After an hour I took out the meat...

and added the veggies...

I think having the meat sitting out while the veggies sauted bothered my sous chef

Once the veggies were softened I put in the rest of the ingerdients

After two more hours it was done

and we ate!

Chili Ronello.
Looks tasty.
I was trying to think of something to cook this weekend, and I think this is it.
I'll use some "boneless country style ribs" though.
OK, I'm hungry now.

Looks great RonL. Thought maybe you would have used some brisket in leiu of ground chuck.
Looks awesome plated and on the table.
Looks like you have been using the egg and like the way it cooks.
