You might think 10 itty-bitty sample cups of chili wouldn’t fill you up, but you’d be wrong. From guilt-free vegan, paleo and gluten-free chilis to kicked-up classic versions packed with beans, brisket, even smoked duck, it’s not a food festival meant to celebrate finesse – it’s just a damned good time. Watch competitors and judges down bowl after bowl of Texas red, have your taste buds blown off at the “Al Gore’s Worst Nightmare” tent and if it rains, that just means more samples for you.
