PIrates of the ChliBean and Trailer Trash ChiliPirates, Chili, and Beer – Oh My!  Lots of well constructed sets and role-playing by the competitors.  We were told that those competing usually arrive the day before the event.  Some camp out, build their creative sets, start their recipes early and enjoy themselves during the Saturday event.  Some competitors even start their planning processes a whole year in advance!

Southside Steve from Atlanta's Rock 100.5This year’s host was radio personality Southside Steve, who is part of the popular radio show The Regular Guys on Atlanta’s Rock Station, Rock 100.5.  Sensitive Southside Steve was more than happy to share with Pennie Tour his favorite ingredients for chili and his softer side to entice the ladies.  Yeah, C’mon!




Pennie Tour looks forward to next year’s newest chili recipes at the 2011 Great Miller Lite Chili Cook-Off!
