I'm the designer and webmaster of their site Howdy-Roo and will be posting pictures and descriptions as soon as I get them from the photographer. They had no videos showing what judging chili is all about so I took footage and made them a video. There's always a need for judges for chili so all are welcome to come and judge. You meet some real nice folks, do them a big favor and get to eat! How can you beat that?
This looks quite a bit better at Full Screen view.
Howdy-Roo is an officially CASI-sanctioned event leading up to the Terlingua International Chili Championship. All of the chilis we tasted were superb, and some were even better than that!
We came home, settled down a bit and slept 10 hours. It felt great.
