AZXC Cookoff Planning!
« on: February 10, 2016, 05:35:51 PM »
All right let's do this! Share your thoughts, this used to be a regular event but participation dwindled. So I updated the thread title to general cookoff, perhaps we can generate interest for other food choices. This is to be an event separate from camping or trail runs, just a get together of food pleasure.

I think the main questions will be:

How many want to participate in making chili? How many will attend? Location? Spring or Fall?

So let's see who'd want to participate, and no your chili doesn't have to already be award winning. Just another reason to eat, drink and be merry.

I'll start with quick survey.

Sounds like a good time, I would be in for this. Will this be an off-road or camping event?

I think typically it has been a hosted event at a local park or someone's home.

I think it'd be cool to make it an Offroad adventure and to have to cook the chili on an open fire! Haha

I think thus requires quite a bit of gear than most people want to bring on an excursion. Typically requires crockpots. I mean we can plan a food based excursion no problem. I think we'd like this to be more about the gathering than the trip to get there.

I'm thinking no Later than mArch, it's already hitting 90 degrees in the valley and that means come May not many people wanna be eatin' potentially spicey food outside in 100 degree heat...

When this was begun, it was meant to be a gathering of multiple off-road clubs (Toyotas, Jeeps, etc) to meet others whom we'd see on the trails, have a raffle, build camaraderie, and eat good chili. It's usually in a park, more of a "show and shine" meeting. I'd be more apt to show up to say Encanto park w/ my family for a day to meet and talk w/ other offroaders while preparing/eating chili than trucking that stuff into the desert to set up.. My $.02<-- There it is.
I got your "Jeep thing", now it burns when I pee..

Unfortunately, my wife no longer wants to move back to AZ, as NC is now our home, so I'll only be out there twice a year at best from now on.  Still staying active here because I can't wait to get out there and go wheeling with everyone in May.  Pretty much every day after work will be mountain biking, then probably heading over to butcher jones to get in some wheeling after work, which ends at 2PM AZT, and wheeling and MTB every weekend.  I'll be there about 3 weeks.

The family and I are down for whatever and wherever just need a firm date, so I can skip those pesky family weekend weddings, graduations, quinceañeras, birthdays, baptisms etc. Please, any day other than March 5th UFC 196.

My chili requires quite a bit of time to cook and is best done at home, then transported to the park where I can add the final touches and bring it all together in another hour or so of cooking. Can't bring chili off-road unless I want that chili car smell that's not an option at the carwash... lol

March is the month that I remember it being done most, I participated for several years before being inactive. (I won't mention who won.. :)

Always a good time to hang out and eat good chili with friends and I'll check back to see what was decided and how you're going about it and if I can make it.

Thanks!
