Voting & Award Categories

Grand Champion

A group of preselected judges will blind taste each chili and vote based on five categories:

  1. Taste - Taste, above all else, is the most important factor. The taste should consist of the combination of the meat, spices, etc. with no particular dominant ingredient.
  2. Aftertaste - The aftertaste, or bite, is the heat created by the various types of spices and/or peppers. (Note: HEAT is not a grading scale factor)
  3. Color - Chili should look appetizing. A reddish-brown appearance is generally traditional and expected.
  4. Aroma - Chili should smell good, indicating what is in store when you taste it.
  5. Consistency - Chili must have a good ratio between sauce and meat. It should not be dry, watery, grainy, lumpy, or greasy. Vegetarian chili (no meat) is also acceptable for entry, and will not be judged on meat content or lack thereof, but rather on overall flavor.

People’s Choice

Attendees will be able to cast their vote by purchasing a $5 meal ticket which will include voting tickets, chili samples, chips, and an ice cold drink. There will be jars at each chili station to collect voting tickets for that chili. The chili with the most votes wins the people’s choice award!

Most Unique

A new spin on an old recipe? One secret ingredient? Interesting blend of ingredients? Make the most unique chili and win a prize!
