Chili - I was honored to be one of the judges again this year, and the chili was fantastic (as always). I was deeply saddened to learn of Curtis Berger's death and offer his family and friends my deepest condolences.

But Curtis and his team at Chugalug University really do know how to make superb chili.

Chili, Are you serious? Your question is almost like asking Mrs. Lincoln how the play was.

The chili was AWESOME! Chug-a-lug won best overall chili AGAIN! After 20 years, I think they reached perfection! Curtis Berger was a main ingredient that will be sorrily missed next year in person, but NOT in spirit!
