Brisket/Dutch Oven = Chilli

Ok guys, 

I picked up my DO today. Got a Lodge CI 7qt. I almost grabbed the enamel coated cast CI but didnt want to smoke the pretty red color. I figured the uncoated could take more abuse. I do regret it doesnt have the campfire handle but I dont camp so it should work. 

I smoked a brisket last weekend and I have about 2.5-3 lbs remaining. I need a chilli recipe thats not toooo spicy. There are so many recipes out there but most of the m seem to be on the spicy side. I dont mind but SWMBO doesnt want it too hot. Ill reserve the hot batch for the fellas on game days. 

Also, I have the woo2; should I use a grid and place the DO close to the lump or should I Use the BGE plate setter and sit the DO right in top? 

I am all excited for tomorrow's cook and dont have the technique...

I have:
smoked brisket
italian sausage
crushed red pepper
chilli powder
onions
garlic
salt pepper
dizzy pig cow lick

What else, any advice? I am going to the grocery store in the morning. Hoping to have the egg fired up before noon.

    Nice!  I leave all peppers out of the cowlick recipe and it is still pretty spicy.   Let us know how it turned out with the brisket.  I've only made it with sausage/ground beef.

    This thread is from 2 years ago, but the chilli was fantastic. I have made it several times since then. It really isnt too spicy. Just enough for the Mrs. I actually bumped the heat up a notch about 3 weeks ago. So good.

    It still looks great, even after 2 years my friend.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out.

    Whatever you put together is going to be awesome with that brisket!  Post some pics of the results.

    I did my first CI DO chili a while back and posted all the details HERE.  
    It was good!   :plus_one:
