  • Jwirlwind, Sounds like the makings for a serious "afterburner" event! 8 - ) Here's the link to a recipe called "Wild Card Chili" that I've made many, nany times over the course of upteen years. It must be well liked as it has survived for perhaps 15 years on the web. I halve the chile powder amt. and use a 16oz. jar of roasted red peppers (sliced, along with their liquid) instead of the chopped red peppers. Heat is a subjective thing so go at it as you wish. Haven't tried it on a BGE but I don't see why it wouldn't be a go. I originally found this recipe in a Marlboro Country Cookbook (freebie) back in the 70's or 80's (I still have the original). If you're going to go at it, make a double batch as you won't be disappointed! And as per JW, I garontee! BTW, "Recipe Source" hosts a wealth of recipes for about anything you can imagine![p]Hope my spelin' aint too bad... Surviving 100 heat index on the Sun Coast of Florida, Rascal
