Chili Chef Rules 2018
1. CHILI COOKED - All chili must be cooked from scratch.
a. CHILI COOKED FROM SCRATCH - "Scratch" is defined as starting with raw meat. No marinating is allowed. Commercial chili powder is permissible, but complete commercial chili mixes ("just add meat" mixes that contain premeasured spices) are NOT permitted.
b. NO FILLERS IN CHILI - Macaroni, rice or other similar ingredients are not permitted. Beans are allowed.
c. SANITATION - Cooks are to prepare and cook chili in as sanitary a manner as possible.

2. COOKS MAY HAVE TO TASTE THEIR CHILI - At the discretion of the judges, chili cooks may be required to remove the lids from their chili crackpots and taste their chili before turning in for judging. If a team refuses, their chili will be disqualified.

3. ONE CHILI RECIPE PER TEAM - Each team is responsible for preparing one pot of chili (Crockpot) that they intend to be judged and for turning in one judging cup from that pot. No more than one judging sample can be taken from any one pot.

4. ALL SCORES SUBMITTED BY JUDGES ARE FINAL AND CONFIDENTIAL - No appeals may be made after final scores have been announced. In the event of a tie, a final blind taste test will take place with an alternate judge, who will be determined prior to the event.
