Clarksburg church cooks up chili contest
The Clarksburg Trinity Presbyterian Church will hold its second annual chili cook-off fundraiser 4-7 p.m. Feb. 9 at the church, located at 18 Clarksburg Rd., Clarksburg.
A $50 cash prize will be awarded to the top entry in each category, selected by a panel of judges. Judges will consider the following criteria: aroma, appearance, consistency and taste.
Applicants need to being a minimum of 1.5 gallons of chili, hot and ready to sere. Judging will begin at 3:30 p.m. for all entries.
Anyone can submit a chili entry by filling out and submitting an entry form by Feb. 7. Contest entry forms can be found online at www.clarksburgtrinitypres.org. A $15 registration fee is due with the entry and can be dropped off at the church between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday and between 9 a.m. and noon Sundays. Forms and payment also can be mailed to the church, Attn: Bonnie Davis, 18 Clarksburg Rd., Clarksburg, Pa. 15725. Checks can be made payable to Trinity Youth Group.
The entry fee includes power for one crockpot-type vessel and four feet of table space. Additional chili can be kept at serving temperature either on a stovetop or in the kitchen oven. Pots should be labeled with the competitor's name. Competitors will need to bring their own serving utensils and are responsible for keeping the chili at serving temperature (140 degrees Fahrenheit). Two-person teams are recommended — one to serve chili and one to refill the serving pot. Competitors are also responsible for all clean-up in relation to their table and pots.
The public will be invited to sample chili Feb. 9, beginning at 4 p.m., and can choose from a variety of dining options that will be available at the door, beginning at $5 for a single bowl of chili. Sample plates ranging from $10 to $12 will also be available.
