Calling all chili fans! Do you have an amazing chili recipe you'd like to show off? Interested in drinking beer, watching football, and eating chili? If any of this sounds appealing, then our 8th annual Super Chili Bowl Cook-Off is for you! Join us on Friday, January 25th from 6:00-9:00pm at the Ramada Bismarck Hotel. General admission is $5 - come taste some of the best chili in the area!

We're looking for any business, restaurant, service group, or individual to make enough chili for our panel of judges and the public to enjoy throughout the evening. Participants must bring their own supplies and their BEST 8-10 gallons of chili. Townsquare Media will supply crackers, cheese, bowls, and utensils.

Participants must comply with the Super Chili Bowl Cook-Off Guidelines. All chili must be prepared from scratch (no pre-made, commercial chili will be accepted). Entrees will be judged in the following categories:

  • Aroma
  • Consistency
  • Color
  • Texture
  • Flavor

Those entering must bring a copy of the recipe and be prepared to post a list of all ingredients used. Judges will vote for 'Best Business' and 'Best Individual' chili, while the public will vote for a 'People's Choice'. Winners will be announced at 8:30 that night.

Registration must be complete and the entry fee paid by January 23rd, 2013 at noon. Please click here for the team registration form.

We've got high hopes for you, Bismarck - let's see what you've got!!
