The Chili Cook-off draws cooks from all over the South to showcase different dishes. Over 70 cooks competed in 2012 and even more are expected this year. The Chili Cook-off was the first of its kind in the area, and continues to be a fun competition for the whole family to enjoy.

The Chili Cook-off features dishes from multiple categories. Submissions will include barbecue, salsa, beans, dutch oven bread, a dutch oven open entry, fruit dessert, pork ribs, chicken, pork butt and brisket. In addition to the main event, there will also be a mixed-drink competition with bloody mary’s, margaritas, and an open-ended appetizer dish March 22nd.

“The Chili Cook-off is a great opportunity to taste competition level food from some great cooks. The food is just tremendous and the addition of the car show makes this a must-attend event,” said Mike Beckelhymer, Vice President of Operations.

Prizes will be awarded for 1st through 3rd place in each category. The cook with the most points will be awarded a $200 cash prize. At the end of the event, select dishes will be served to the public for just $5.00.
