Big D’s Texas BBQ Chili
D.C.C. – Fort Worth, TX

1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1 White Onion – finely chopped
5 Cloves of Garlic – minced
3 Lbs of Ground Beef – cold smoked
1 Bottle of Texas Beer of choice
1 Beef Bouillon Cube dissolved in 1 cup of warm water
3 Bay Leaves
1 Bottle of Texas BBQ Sauce of choice
1 Can of Tomato Sauce
10 Tablespoons of Chili Powder of choice
¼ Cup of Corn Meal pre mixed with ¼ cup of cold water
- Salt & Black Pepper to taste
- Hot Sauce to taste

Begin by placing the ground meat into a foil pan and cold smoking with Mesquite wood for several hours. Make sure to mix by hand several times during the process.

In a 5 quart pot, sauté the onion in olive oil for several minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for a few more minutes. Add the ground meat and sprinkle with a little salt and black pepper. Cook the ground meat just until it turns gray, not brown. Drain the ground meat in a colander and return to pot. Add the beer, beef bouillon dissolved in water, and bay leaves. Cover and simmer over low heat for about 2 hours. Add the tomato sauce, BBQ sauce, and chili powder. Cover and continue to cook over low heat for another hour or so. Add hot sauce and additional salt and black pepper to taste. Add the corn meal and stir until the chili thickens.

Serve with shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream, and tortilla chips. Enjoy! 8)

That does sound good . I will prob add 11 or 7 Jalepenos to it for a lil more flavor . Chili is good year round . I eat it for Breakfest sometimes . Draining off the Grease like he does makes it almost too Healthy . Thanks for sharing the Ree c pee!
