Back home, a local bar always had a chili contest on Superbowl.
They usually had about 30-40 entries.... Just a couple judges randomly picked from the crowd, and chili pots went by numbers.. so it was basically blind tasting and no one knew who's was who's....
Then they also had a "crowd favorite" prize. They gave cash awards of $100, $50, and $25 to the top 3.
