    Thank you Susie for hosting the event! What a lovely home you have. Dale thanks for all of your help and organization as well. What a wonderful afternoon. I loved being a judge. I understand this was our first judging meetup. We're all learning and working out the kinks. I applauded all of you that worked so hard to participate in chili and cornbread. Thank you everyone! So wonderful to meet more people this time!

    What a fun idea for a meet up!

    July 1, 2013

  • Laurie

    This sounds fun, but I cannot say that chili is my speciality, so Ill pass this time being a contestant. :(. Let me know what's needed most, I will be happy to fill in. I look forward to meeting everyone since this is my first event.

    Please let me know which I can bring: salads, desserts, drinks. :)

    June 4, 2013

    • Dale M

      Hi - any of the above to share would be great. We will have a table for pot luck type of contributions, such as salad and dessert. If you have a cooler, bring that along for drinks. If no cooler and you want to share drinks that is fine too. Soda, bottled water .. some people bring beer or wine. All contributions are welcomed. Thanks for the suggestions.

      June 15, 2013

  • Angie

    I think I'm going to make a trial batch tomorrow to see if I need to make any adjustments. I've made this recipe a number of times, but it is a chili cookoff after all. This is going to be great fun!

    Hi.. I was planning to make Lousiana Gumbo on Friday.. Can I make more and bring that..

    1 · June 13, 2013

  • Tiff

    Susie do we cook Chili & Cornbread at you're home or bring it prepared & just heat up? Who will be judging the contestants? Just curious

    May 28, 2013

    • Robert B

      Good question!

      May 28, 2013

    • Dale M

      I'll jump in here and maybe Susie will provide additional comments. The chili should be ready to go, prepared ahead of time. Contestants should bring their own crock-pot or other ways to keep warm for serving such as portable warming tray with canned heat. I am assuming the cornbread would also be prepared beforehand, ready for serving.

      May 28, 2013

  • Kay C.

    This will be my first meet-up! I make a kick-*ss chili and a not bad cornbread. I am looking forward to meeting everyone and enjoying an afternoon with "new" friends.

    May 17, 2013

  • Ujjal G.

    Oh I will be a contestant. Watch out It will be "The hottest chili" you ever tasted?
