Egan’s Bar in Tuscaloosa once again played host to the Asses of Fire Chili Cook-Off

Tuscaloosa, Alabama – Chili fans and aficionados gathered at Egan’s Bar on February 22nd for the 2014 Asses of Fire Chili Cook-Off.  The pungent aromas of stewing meats, tomatoes, and spices drew a large crowd to the bar on University Boulevard in Tuscaloosa.  12 entries battled for first prize while a host of fans and patrons assembled to test the various chili submissions.  Some entries were sweet and mild, while others went all out with punishing heat provided by exotic named peppers.  Everyone in attendance, though, had a great time and got to taste some fantastic culinary creations.  Like past Asses of Fire Chili Cook-Offs, it was an excellent way to spend a Saturday afternoon in February.

Patrons who did not enter a chili in the contest got to sample all the entries for a $5 fee.  There was something for everyone’s palette on hand at this year’s contest.  It didn’t matter if one liked vegetarian chili, meat heavy chili, or even chili hotter than the surface of the sun.  All sorts of varieties were on hand at this year’s Asses of Fire Chili Cook-Off.  The guests even got to wash things down with a variety of draft beers from Druid City Brewing.  The local brewery even made a special habanero and jalapeno pepper spiced porter.

Some, though, had to resort to milk to wash down and counteract the effects of the the deceptively named “4th Place Chili”.  That entry featured the dreaded Trinidad Scorpion Butch T Pepper.

Other chili entries had names from the straight forwarding sounding “Garden Chili” and ” Black Forest Chili” to the more creative “Something Chili This Way Comes” along with “A Chili of Fire” and “A Chili of Ice”.  In the end, though, the team of judges narrowed down the entries the 5 best on hand at the bar.  Emily Sarvis-Hill’s entry, “Sweet and Spicy Chorizo and Bacon”, ended up taking first place at the 2014 Asses of Fire Chili Cook-Off.  “A Chili” of Ice by Shawn Randall took second place, while “Black Forest Chili” by Kayla Terry walked away with third place.

First place took home a nice cash prize along with a selection from the prize pool.  Second place through fifth place also took home selections from the prize pool.  The prize pool was donated by the event sponsors.  Those sponsors were Grace Aberdean Habitat Alchemy, Oz Music, The Left Hand Soap Company, Druid City Brewing, and The Arts Council of Tuscaloosa.  The event was put on and executed by Wellthatscool.tv and Egan’s Bar.

The 2014 Asses of Fire Chili Cook-Off was a fun time for all those in attendance and should set the stage for an even better Asses of Fire Chili Cook-Off in 2015.
