Chili Cook Off 2013

Chili Cook-Off/Tailgate Party!

The Hopkins County HBA held their first ever Chili Cook-Off/Tailgate Party in October...and it was a blast!  The weather was perfect to watch the NFL game on the big screen set up outside in Hancock Bank's parking lot.  Mark Metcalfe (Metcalfe Lawn & Garden Center) brought out his Big Green Egg and grilled burgers to perfection (burgers donated by Mark himself!).   Plus there was chili fixins and deserts you didn't want to pass up!!  There were seven chili entries submitted from: 

Mike's You'll Find Out Tomorrow Chili (Mike Downey, Downey Professional Construction)

Debbie's Rootin, Tootin, Turkey & Black Bean Chili (Debbie Todd, EO)

Reta's Sweet Deer Chili (Reta Mangum, HBA Secretary)

Rusty's Five Alarm "Will Make Ya Wanta Slap Ya Momma" Chili (Rusty Honeycutt, Atmos Energy)

John's Smoking Hot Chili (John Mercer, Mercer Electric)

Tony's Roadkill Surprise (Tony Caudill, Caudill Construction)

Kim's Kids World Famous Momma Lovin Chili (Kim Parson, Parson Design & Build)

Cindy's Sacramento Armadillo Shouldn't Have Crossed the Road Chili (Cindy Reynolds, Reynolds Construction)

The unanimous winner, voted on by those members brave enough to eat, was Reta's Sweet Deer Chili.  Thanks to all the participants as well as Hancock Bank & Metcalfe Lawn & Garden Center for making this event possible!!
