**The following rules are to be adhered to by all cook-off cooks, judges and/or assistants:

1. For the Hella Chili Cook-Off, Chili is defined as any kind of vegetables, meat or combination of meats and vegetables cooked with chili peppers, various other spices and beans.

2. The entry fee will be $50.00 per chili entered. Contestants may enter more than 1 batch of chili, for an additional fee. There will be an award for first place – a winner’s trophy, monetary prize and a chance to be featured at one of The Creators Place at the Artisan’s future events.

3. All ingredients must be pre-cooked and treated prior to the event – chili is to be brought ready to eat.

5. Each contestant must cook a minimum of two (2) quarts of competition chili. A portion of this chili will be submitted to the judges and the rest will be for publicconsumption.

6. Each contestant will be assigned a “contestants’ number” by the scorekeeper and be given a container in which their chili will be collected for official judging.

7. The decision of the judges is final. Judging will be based on score cards which arenumbered. 80% of the final tally will be from judges’ score cards. 20% will be fromscorecards from “people’s choice.”

8. Each contestant is responsible for policing and cleaning up the area at the end of theday and removing all items from the area. There will not be an area for cleaning ofdishes. No items shall be allowed to remain after the close of the Cook-off.

**Judging

In this competition the chili will be blind judged (no one knows the identity of the cook)and scorecards will be based on the following six characteristics:

1. Texture: The texture of the meat shall not be tough or mushy

2. Flavor: The chili should have good flavoring and chili pepper taste should be labeled as: mild, medium or spicy

3. Consistency: Chili should be a smooth combination of meat and gravy not too thin or too thick

4. Spice and taste: Blending of the spices and how well they have permeated the meat

5. Aroma: This will be a personal preference of the judge

6. Color: The submitted chili should look appetizing

**There will be a People’s Choice ballot box for people to score the chili. Scorecards will be collected at the end of the judging and tallied and that score added to the final tally.
