I want to egg some chili tomorrow, and I was wondering what the best temp would be for the cooking after everything has been put together, as well as how long do ya'll keep it on there? Normal stove top to me is simmr of course with lid adjar, but if there are any pros to give a brief step by step I'd sure appreciate it!

Thanks to everyone for being who you are!

The Dude: Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

    danv23,  I cooked chili the other night,  Used woo, grill above the felt line.  Used ground beef.  Easy couple hour cook.
    BTW almonds are optional, used to help grind the chilies added no flavor.
