Chili Cookoff Rules

Cooks can start prepping at 10 am, light their stoves at 11am. Cooks appreciate being left alone for the first little bit to prep.

Homestyle Chili is any kind of meat/combination of meats and/or vegetables cooked with beans, chili peppers/powders, various spices and other ingredients. Beans are required. Preference is not given to either cut meat or ground meat. Seafood is not considered meat. Homestyle chili may be any color, including red, green, white and yellow.

Winners are all chosen by judges. Garnishes must not be used for any category. Rule of thumb- if an ingredient found on the top layer of an entry bowl cannot also be found mixed throughout the entire bowl, it is a garnish and is not permitted. If a bowl is delivered for judging with a garnish, the bowl will be disqualified.

The Cultural Market will provide an area for each contestant to cook - usually a 10x10 space. Each contestant is responsible for supplying all of their own cooking ingredients, supplies and utensils. Contestants will receive specific requirements from each individual cook-off organizer upon successful registration. We strongly encourage preparedness with a fire extinguisher and washing station, as these maybe required by local laws.

A representative of the cook-off will conduct a contestant meeting no later than 1 hour prior to the start of the competition cooking period. At this meeting instructions will be given and questions answered. The typical cooking period is 3 hours. The exact starting and ending of the cooking period will be announced by the hosting organization. Cooking during the entire cooking period is at the sole discretion of the contestant. A contestant must cook a minimum of 32 oz. to be submitted for judging. Contestants must cook and turn in their own entries. The Chief Judge has the right to disqualify any cook or team of cooks found turning in an entry(s) not prepared by them.

Each cook will be assigned a contestant number and given one 32 oz. ICS competition cup prior to the start of the cooking period. Each cup will have their contestant number marked on the bottom. It is the contestant’s responsibility to verify that the number on the bottom of their cup(s) is the same as their assigned contestant number. Each cook is responsible for delivering their cup(s) to the judging area at the end of the cooking period. Each cup must be filled to the bottom of the rim. Sharing or splitting chili for judging with another contestant will result in disqualification. Turning in a bowl not cooked by you will also result in disqualification. Cook-off judges will choose their top three, using the judging criteria set forth by the International Chili Society.
