The Hopkins County HBA held their
2nd annual Chili Cook-Off/Tailgate Party

in September on a perfect late summer evening!  The weather was perfect to watch the game on the big screen, the food was donated and grilled to perfection by Mark & Penny Metcalfe (Metcalfe Lawn & Garden Center) on a Big Green Egg (available for purchase at their garden center located at 721 Princeton Road, Madisonville, sure to check out their Yeti Coolers too!).   Plus there was chili fixins and plenty of desserts including homemade ice cream (thank you Tony Caudill!).  

There were six chili entries submitted: 
Reta's Delicious Deer Chili (Reta Mangum, HBA Secretary & last year's winner)
Rusty's Natural Gas Chili (Rusty Honeycutt, Atmos Energy)
Tam's Tooorrifffic Chili (Tammy Norvel, Hancock Bank)
John's Smoking Hot Chili (John Mercer, Mercer Electric)
Tony's "Not Really Chili" Chili (Tony Caudill, Caudill Construction)
Deb's Dat Gum Good Chili (Debbie Todd, EO)

And the WINNER WAS Tam's Tooorrrifffic Chili. 

Thanks to all the participants as well as
Hancock Bank & Metcalfe Lawn & Garden Center
for making this event possible!!
