Chili Cook-off/Buddy Rally, Texas Alamo Unit

I know this is a little short notice, but we would like to invite everyone to our Chili Cook-off/Buddy Rally to be held April 23 thru 26 th at Braunig Lake RV Resort, San Antonio, TX. (Same place the Vintage Rally was held) We plan on cooking Chili on Saturday and it will be judged, and consumed Saturday at the dinner meal. And, we plan on having LOTS of fun. You DO NOT have to be WBBI members, or even own an Airstream. Just an RV.

For additional information, or to RSVP, please e-mail Gail at: cliffgail@lakegranbury.com

Y'all come now!

The Texas Alamo Unit, WBCCI, is putting on the rally. The tea party at Alamo Plaze is on April 15th, tax day. Fiesta events this year will run from April 16th thru the 26th, so this will coincide with Fiesta....a great time for sure.

Wink Yall have fun. But pot luck chili can get real unlucky. As in hello IBS

Wish I could come. I can't.
So who is coming?

I am thinking that Sat the 25th evening is the Fiesta Flambeau parade downtown. Or maybe it is Friday the 24th.

Guess there's not a room in town. Surely not along the riverwalk.
Wonder if there are any out at the motel next to your rally site?

Lots of good chili in Texas. I used to make a fair bowl o' red myself if I may say so. Got tedious and expensive.
Now I am back to the really best chili in Texas.
Canned WOLF Brand. (no beans of course). Yep I said canned.
Con-Agra bought it out a few years back and has tried to ruin it, but the damm stuff was so good to start with they have yet to succeed. Not sure if it is even still made in Texas, but its damm sure sold here.

Oh we'll make much better chili than the Wolf Brand!

The last I heard there are about 40 trailers coming, so it will be a party for sure. The Fiesta Parade is on Friday, and almost all businesses and all schools are out for it.

I don't know about room availabilty, but we do still have some sites available for RVs. Wish y'all could come.

There are rooms right there at the RV park. It is part of the owner's complex.

Yes, there is a motel there as well. I couldn't find the phone number for the motel, but the toll free number to the RV park is (877)633-3170, and I'm confident they can at least tell you the number of the motel.

CHILI COOK-OFFS
NOTE: Please take time to read this slowly. If you pay attention to the
first two judges, the reaction of the third is even better.
For those of you who may have lived in Texas, you know how true this is!
They actually have a chili cook-off about the time the rodeo comes to
town.
It takes up a major portion of the parking lot at the Astrodome! You
will likely want to read this behind closed doors because, if you are
like me, you will be howling out loud.
INEXPERIENCED CHILI TASTER
Notes From An Inexperienced Chili Tester Named FRANK, who was visiting
Texas from the East Coast: "Recently, I was honored to be selected as a
judge at a chili cook-off. The original person called in sick at the
last moment and I happened to be standing there at the judge's table
asking directions to the beer wagon, when the call came.
I was assured by the other two judges (Native Texans) that the chili
wouldn't be all that spicy, and besides, they told me I could have free
beer during the tasting, So I accepted."
Here are the scorecards from the event:
__________________________________________________ ________
CHILI # 1 MIKE'S MANIAC MOBSTER MONSTER CHILI JUDGE ONE: A little too
heavy on tomato. Amusing kick.
JUDGE TWO: Nice, smooth tomato flavor. Very mild.
FRANK: Holy ****, what the hell is this stuff? You could remove dried
paint from your driveway. Took me two beers to put the flames out. I
hope that's the worst one. These Texans are crazy.
__________________________________________________ ________
CHILI # 2 ARTHUR'S AFTERBURNER CHILI
JUDGE ONE: Smokey, with a hint of pork. Slight Jalapeno tang.
JUDGE TWO: Exciting BBQ flavor, needs more peppers to be taken
seriously.
FRANK: Keep this out of the reach of children I'm not sure what I am
supposed to taste besides pain. I had to wave off two people who wanted
to give me the Heimlich maneuver. They had to rush in more beer when
they saw the look on my face.
__________________________________________________ ________
CHILI # 3 FRED'S FAMOUS BURN DOWN THE BARN CHILI JUDGE ONE: Excellent
firehouse chili! Great kick. Needs more beans.
JUDGE TWO: A bean less chili, a bit salty, good use of peppers.
FRANK: Call the EPA; I've located a uranium spill. My nose feels like I
have been snorting Drano. Everyone knows the routine by now get me more
beer before I ignite. Barmaid pounded me on the back; now my backbone is
in the front part of my chest. I'm getting ****-faced from all the beer.
__________________________________________________ ______
CHILI # 4 BUBBA'S BLACK MAGIC
JUDGE ONE: Black bean chili with almost no spice. Disappointing.
JUDGE TWO: Hint of lime in the black beans. Good side dish for fish or
other mild foods, not much of a chili.
FRANK: I felt something scraping across my tongue, but was unable to
taste it, is it possible to burnout taste buds? Sally, the barmaid, was
standing behind me with fresh refills; that 300 lb. bitch is starting to
look HOT just like this nuclear waste I'm eating. Is chili an
aphrodisiac?
__________________________________________________ _____
CHILI # 5 LINDA'S LEGAL LIP REMOVER
JUDGE ONE: Meaty, strong chili. Cayenne peppers freshly ground, adding
considerable kick. Very Impressive.
JUDGE TWO: Chili using shredded beef could use more tomato. Must admit
the cayenne peppers make a strong statement.
FRANK: My ears are ringing, sweat is pouring off my forehead and I can
no longer focus my eyes. I farted and four people behind me needed
paramedics.
The contestant seemed offended when I told her that her chili had given
me brain damage, Sally saved my tongue from bleeding by pouring beer
directly on it from a pitcher. I wonder if I'm burning my lips off? It
really pisses me off that the other judges asked me to stop screaming.
Screw those rednecks!
__________________________________________________ ______
CHILI # 6 VERA'S VERY VEGETARIAN VARIETY JUDGE ONE: Thin yet bold
vegetarian variety chili. Good balance of spice and peppers.
JUDGE TWO: The best yet. Aggressive use of peppers, onions, and garlic.
Superb.
FRANK: My intestines are now a straight pipe filled with gaseous,
sulfuric flames. I **** myself when I farted and I'm worried it will eat
through the chair. No one seems inclined to stand behind me except
Sally. Can't feel my lips anymore. I need to wipe my ass with a snow
cone!
__________________________________________________ _
CHILI # 7 SUSAN'S SCREAMING SENSATION CHILI JUDGE ONE: A mediocre chili
with too much reliance on canned peppers.
JUDGE TWO: Ho Hum, tastes as if the chef literally threw in a can of
chili peppers at the last moment. I should take note that I am worried
about Judge Number 3, He appears to be in a bit of distress as he is
cursing uncontrollably.
FRANK: You could put a grenade in my mouth, pull the pin, and I wouldn't
feel a damn thing. I've lost sight in one eye, and the world sounds like
it is made of rushing water. My shirt is covered with chili, which slid
unnoticed out of my mouth. My pants are full of lava-like **** to match
my damn shirt. At least during the autopsy they'll know what killed me.
I've decided to stop breathing, it's too painful. Screw it, I'm not
getting any oxygen anyway. If I need air, I'll just suck it in through
the 4-inch hole in my stomach

You guys sure don't rush to report how things went.

By now the irratable bowel syndrome should have calmed.
Should have gone with the Wolf Brand Chili.

How many folks in the Alamo unit are forum participants?
Does your unit have a website? What are some of your other annual events?
