CASI Alabama State Championship Chili Cook-Off

Location: Pavilion
Description: Setup begins 8:00 a.m.
Doors open at 11:00 a.m.
Judging at 1:00 p.m.

Come on out and taste homemade chili from more than 15 cooks competing to win the Alabama State Championship Cook-off!

Or, if you think you’ve got what it takes, you can challenge other home cooks!

This is the second time we've hosted Chili Appreciation International (CASI), and this cook-off will be the final State Championship in 2013. The winner will get a trip to the national CASI Chili Cook-Off in Terlingua, Texas in November to compete for the national title.

To make it even more fun, this year we’re also holding an open throw-down chili cook off for anyone who wants to compete. There are no rules and no entry fee, just the chance for home cooks to bring their chili, challenge each other, and someone will go home with bragging rights!

Nothing goes better with chili than cold beer, so Cahaba Brewing Company will be on hand offering samples.

A $5 donation is appreciated for anyone 18 and older. A portion of the proceeds will help support the Gardens.
