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: This is a very complicated case, Maude. You know, a lotta ins, lotta outs, lotta what-have-you's. And, uh, lotta strands to keep in my head, man. Lotta strands in old Duder's head. Luckily I'm adhering to a pretty strict, uh, drug regimen to keep my mind, you know, limber.

Walter Sobchak: Nihilists! *uck me. I mean, say what you want about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude, at least it's an ethos.

    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.
