America’s Best Firehouse Chili Contest

Nothing elicits a sense of pride at fire stations across the cou ntry quite like a firehouse kitchen that produces quality eats – especially chili. That’s why the makers of HORMEL® chili are teaming up with the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) to highl ight the underappreciated cooking talents of firefighters everywhere, while also giving firehouses across th e country a chance to win $10,000. Introducing “America’s Best Firehouse Chili Contest,” presented by the makers of HORMEL ® chili.

Judging

Host of the cooking show “Firehouse Kitchen” and retired NYC firefighter, Ray Cooney, will be judging initial entries, narrowing the field down to the top 10. From there, consumers will be allowed to vote on their favorite recipes by visiting the contest website to determine the three finalists. Those finalists will then be flown to New York City to compete in a live chili cook-off for a chance to win $10,000 for their station.

Judging of recipes will be based on the following:
