OK, this is ridiciulous that I can't win an International Chili Society [ICS] Chili Cookoff. So, I've spent the last 13 hours looking at recipes, past winners, checking ingredients and relearning to type and grammer. Losing that effort, also. Here is the latest version to improve my first recipe. I'm headed to cookoff's in Forsyth and Springfield. Oh boy-two days of cooking and a good road trip out of town. I've added a couple of minor variables into ingredients and technique. Hope, it works. I know the new ingredient SIBM will definately help the road trip part once I'm there. I LOST BOTH FORSYTH (12th OF 13) AND DON'T KNOW ABOUT SPRINGFIELD AND NO ONE SENT ME ANY WINNINGS.
