Made Over the top Chili today—my own version

Thanks for introducing me to this great method for chili.  I usually make a recipe as written the first time but didn’t for this cook.  Added a chopped Serrano chili, used 3 bell peppers, not 5, added 1/2 cup roast hatch green Chile’s, Used bacon fat instead of olive oil to sauté the veggies.  Spice wise, added cumin, oregano, salt and pepper to the giant meat ball and added the meatball when it hit 150-degrees a total of 5 hours of cooking,  Gotta say, half way through the cook, I was sure we were going to order pizza tonight.  When finished, really great.  Here’s a link to the recipe:  https://teggsty.com/over-the-top-smoked-chili/.

    Oh man, I thought you said "chili" but that link had some sort of concoction they put together, but I did see beans in there.  My guess is you had the wrong link...

    Your guess is wrong.  No mistake, just outlines a different method to make chili and it’s great.  Read about it on several forums, including this one.  I was skeptical too but it was great and very easy method. Here’s one of the posts from the forum:  https://eggheadforum.com/discussion/1209934/over-the-top-chili

    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.

    Was looking for a chili recipe to use for a Christmas Eve party and ran across the posts for the Over the Top Chili. Figured why not.

    Followed what seems to be the usual recipe.
    2 lbs 85/15 ground beef (less expensive than the 80/20 by $2 lb).
    1 lb Chorizo
    1 lb Spicy ground sausage
    Chili powder, onion powder, granulated garlic, cumin, pepper. Heated some oil in a small cast iron skillet and did a mild toast bloom of the spices. Added to the meat mix.
    Fire roasted 3 red bell peppers, 1 cubanelle, and 1 jalapeño.
    Sautéed the garlic and onions.
    Used 1 regular Ro-Tel and 1 Serrano Ro-Tel.
    Yes, I added beans. Hell, we're from Massachusetts. We do stupid things up here.
    Been on the Egg for about 2 hours now, registering at 115F. Egg's at a rock steady 275F.
    Smells wonderful.

  • Hola my friend and Happy New year.  Loved this chili.  When i lived in New Mexico, we had chili many different ways.  the criticism doesn’t bother me.  lack of creativity and lack of an open mind and heart bothers me!  This method is easy.

  • Looks great.  I squish up some foil into balls to put the pot on, as recommended somewhere-original recipe I think.  Hope it turned out well.  Cheers!

     The teggsty one-handed dry rub sounded pretty painful initially, but actually looks pretty pragmatic.
