Fort Rucker Chili Cookoff


They asked me to build a booth for the post wide chili cookoff. So, needless to say, I ran with it.

They gave me a $150 budget and 4 days to get it done, I built this Mels drive in inspired, 50's style drive in, complete with sliding window, intercom ordering box, menu and 3 golf carts to drive the patrons through. I had 2 enlisted guys helping, plus the wife and kids jumped in and got dirty too.

Ended up getting 2nd place for "best chili" and we lost "best of show" for our booth by 1 stinkin point! 66 votes to 67 votes. Oh well, there is always next year!

We had a blast though!

All you needed...


You were missing just one thing, that would have put you over the top for "best in show." Roller skating car hops in short skirts! (I'm just sayin')

LOL, we talked about that. But, it was on grass. Well, and my 16 year old daughter and a 65 year old woman were the ones serving the chili.

Thanks Dan. Obviously, we didnt have cheese, hot sauce or napkins. But, I guarantee had someone ordered it, we would have gone and got it!
