Red River Chili takes on Hitchin' Post
Food Dude friend Paul “Ole Shep” Shepard entered his version of Red River Chili into a chili cookoff recently and took 4th. Here’s the note he sent me…
Hey Dave, Ole Shep here, Well a couple of weeks ago, I think it was the 22nd of January, that was the day it was like 78 degrees, set a state record, etc. I was out riding my motorcycle and rode up to Guthrie and then over to Kingfisher and stopped at a little place called “The Hitchin Post” to have a cool one, well anyway the bar maid was tellin me that they were going to have a chili cook-off the 31 of January, so I made your famous “Red River Chili” and went. I took 4th place out of 14 pots/crock-pots of chili. I also won 1st place for the hottest chili, I didn’t think it was hot. Lookin forward to next year, maybe I’ll do better. I had 4 pounds of rump roast and then doubled your recipe plus one tablespoon of ground cayenne pepper. I had fun, met several nice folks and came home with a cloth folding chair with Hitchin Post on it, Bud Light hat and tee shirt, a thermos, deck of Hithcin Post playing cards and a few other goodies, so I didn’t come home empty handed. Also I took 3 copies of your recipe and 3 people ask if I happen to bring the recipe, so your “Red River Chili” recipe is now up in Kingfisher, Oklahoma.
Well have a great day, Ole Shep
