Lazy Sunday Afternoon Chili

I finally had an enjoyable Sunday afternoon of not doing much of anything. I ran in a sprint triathlon in the morning, so I was able to just kick back in the afternoon. My intention was to grab a 12 pack of beer and watch some football while letting a pot of chili slowly smoke on the egg all day. Although watching the Browns seemed like a worth while goal, Dan and I ended up just sitting on my back patio having a couple of beers watching my Medium Egg happily smoke away.[p]Here is the recipe:[p]In a Cast Iron Dutch Oven,
Brown 1 pounds of cubed chuck tender beef
Brown 1.5 pounds of Hamburger
Add 1 large Onion, chopped towards the end of browning[p]Deglaze with .25 cup Jim Beam Bourbon[p]Add:
1 cup Water
1 cup strong Coffee
7 whole Tomatoes, peeled and cored
1 Tbls. Beef Better-Than-Bouillon
1 Tbls. Chicken Better-Than-Bouillon
Float 1 Chipotle Pepper [p]Bring to a boil and add: [p]4 cloves Garlic, crushed
1 Tbls. - Chili Powder
2 Tbls. – Dizzy Pig Cowlick Rub
¼ tsp. - Black Pepper
1 packet - Sazon Goya [p]Place in Egg, uncovered, on a platesetter at 250 using a chunk of Red Oak and a chunk of Pecan and simmer for about an hour, then add: [p]½ tsp. – Oregano
½ tsp. – Onion Powder
1 Tbls. – Chili Powder
2 Tbls. – Dizzy Pig Cowlick Rub
¼ tsp. – Black Pepper
½ packet – Sazon Goya [p]Simmer for approximately one hour. [p]Add: [p]1 Tbls. – Cumin seeds, crushed
½ packet – Sazon Goya [p]Simmer for approximately 60 minutes or until the cubed beef fall apart. Taste and add salt and cayenne as needed. [p]Just so you know, Sazon Goya does contain MSG. If you cannot tolerate MSG, then just add more Cowbell … Got to have more Cowbell … Dizzy Pig Cowlick that is.[p]Enjoy,


  • RhumAndJerk,[p]Sounds great! I'll have to try that when things cool off here in Austin.[p]See ya next month.[p]Cheers,[p]GM
  • GrillMeister,
    I am looking forward to some of that ten year old rye. At this point, you have me scouring stores all over the country to see what rye's they do have... Most people just look at me funny. Well, more funny than usual.

  • RhumAndJerk,[p]Not a problem. Thanks for the reminder, I'll just add that to my packing list.[p]Alberta Springs, 10 year old 100% Rye sippin whiskey.[p]Good stuff!
  • GrillMeister,
    The best that I can find so far is Old Overholt at 60% Rye.
    Although, I have to admit that the yellow label Jim Beam Rye is a very good.

    <p />RhumAndJerk,[p]From what I've heard, Alberta Springs is only available in Canada. I have to import it when I head up to Ottawa once a year. Perhaps we can convince some Canadian eggers to bring some to the Eggtoberfest. Hmmm.

  • After watching a BBQ and Chilli cookoff on TV (the competition was in Las Vegas), I've had a major craving for a good chilli. Some serious competition in making chilli.
    I'll try this one (along with the rye)....thanks.
