edited February 10 in EggHead Forum
The BBQ Pit Boys are amazing (see them on Youtube) and after searching many of their recipes, I decided to do their 5 pepper (superbowl) chili tonight.  First I seared meatballs and sirloin on my Egg, pulled the sirloin medium rare, cut into small pieces, and mixed with the crushed meatballs.



Then it was time for the peppers and onion, which were chopped into small pieces:

Followed by the usual suspects:

The all important beer and a simmer for five hours:


Man it was Guuud! Thanks for viewing!

    Looks great.    Especially since I didn’t see beans in there.

    I followed their recipe to a "T" and they said no beans. (except I didn't add corn)

    I'm not offended by beans, but corn is sacrilege. Either way, that chili looks great!

    What is the point of the medium rare steak if you’re then cooking it for another five hours? Seems just searing it would give the same result

    Searing it was the goal, which is what I did, but the Egg was only at 450 so I left it on a little too long.  I actually wanted to sear it and pull it rare, but it was medium rare by time I got to it.

    The guy in the BBQ Pit Boys video says there is a million ways to make chili and that they are all good.  But I agree with you.  I just couldn't put corn in there.

    Thanks, I must have missed that.

    Yep, the Pit Boys are using a 12Q model.  Mine is a Lodge 7Q.  I've got a Lodge 5Q that I use for smaller cooks, but I use the 7Q for chili.
