BBQ Chili Recipes
Gonna have a chili get together this weekend, and I want to separate myself by using smoked meats in my chili. I found a few recipes on amazingribs.com and they seem alright but wanted to see what you fine folks might have to suggest. I'm likely going to avoid doing anything with brisket, just because if I'm going to smoke a brisket I ain't putting it in chili.

Leaning in this direction for the time being: LINK

It doesn’t take that much meat, brisket chili is amazing. Just make a brisket, eat what you want and save a few lbs for the chili.

re: BBQ Chili Recipes
careful with the smoke, it can overwhelm the dish and you wind up with smoked meat stew, not chili. i've entered one chili contest in my life and we beat the "favorite" who spent three days smoking meats.

her's was good but it wasn't chili

re: BBQ Chili Recipes
I make chili with leftover pork shoulder almost every time I smoke one. I use the bone to cook the beans.

I've made both chili verde with pork and smoked brisket chili before. Both were really good. You could smoke chuck roast and use that in place of brisket. But you would have to be careful with the cook time of the chile, chuck would be more prone to falling apart into strings.

I've thought about that as well. Saw another recipe that called for chuck and only called to smoke it for 2 hours, and then it would finish cooking in the chile while it simmers. May not be a bad route for my first attempt.

Sounds like a solid idea, it is probably is done or close to done taking smoke after two hours and you can maintain the texture.

FACT


Funny you post this thread. I preface this to say, I'm not a chili cook. I have my own recipe for one that feeds ~20 but thats it.

I have to make a chili for 50 for Halloween. Background...my chili recipe is fairly decent but nothing more. I worked on the recipe on and off for a year...adding this, changing that, etc. Everyone says it's good but I know. I KNOW its just an average chili. Nothing more.

My problem is I don't know how to make it pop. But your idea has got me thinking about smoking the meats to help it. And maybe adding the ancho powder instead of Mexene chili powder. Idk....

The way to make a chili pop is using chili paste instead of buying powder.

Go to Mexican store, buy an assortment of dry chili’s (Moritas, anchos, reds, aribols etc), cut up and rehydrate in stock and then put in food processor.

You can smoke a chuck roast for chili.

Try smoked sausage. A chili made out of smoked pork sausage is amazing.

I've got a local butcher up the street who makes great homemade sausages...Would I just dice those up and throw them in when done? Could I mix meats...using the chuck AND the sausage?

Two things I'm not a fan of in chili: 1) beans, 2) noodles

Mine won't have either...or at most it'll have light beans.

Ok, so I'm thinking of going with this recipe, but how would I convert the chili powder to chili paste in terms of measuring it out? I'm probably not going to include the beans, or maybe just use half a can.

Any other suggested alterations to the below would be appreciated.

Suggestions:

Cook your own beans.



I’ve never heard of adding chocolate. That recipe has a lot of ingredients. My chili has like 7.

Also, when I do “beef” chili, it’s 2/3 beef, 1/3 pork sausage.
