This February day I joined many guests and other members of New England HOG chapters to sample and vote on our favorite chili.
The Paramount H-D service manager graciously closed the service bay for the day so there was ample room to walk around and sample the entrants. The dealership also offered a 10% discount on apparel and accessories to HOG members.
The ladies of Metrowest HOG pulled it all together...sold tickets, collected money, tallied the votes, etc.etc. etc...ya know, all the grunt work us ladies have to do...
Just like real men eat quiche, real ladies eat chili....quiche does suck though, doesn't it?
Scraping the bottom of the pan for the good stuff ...think this one was a fave
Chili today...hot tamale...
Thankfully there was a late contender because the trays were licked clean. The new batch was devoured as quickly as the first ten.
Paul Yorkis, chapter secretary and activities officer of Metrowest HOG, tallied the votes...
May I have your attention, please....the winners of this year's Metrowest HOG Chili Cook-off are:
3rd place goes to... David D.
2nd place winner - Mark L.
And the winner is...drum roll, please.......Rick L.
Congrats on your wins, gentlemen. Each entrant had their own special recipe, some had corn, some beans, some without, all had different levels of heat. The winner Rick has worked hard to perfect his recipe and has won several competitions. When asked if he would be willing to share his secret, he said, “I’ll tell ya what’s in it, you’re not going to be able to recreate it!” Oh, it's onnn....see you next year, Rick!
