Porubsky's started selling chili again yesterday, so the annual chili season has begun!

          It's pretty much old-school greasy chili, spicy, but not too hot - the hot's what Porubsky's pickles are for. Michael has a review of Porubsky's with pictures in the restaurant section.
           
          When they start selling their chili, you know it's getting close to Fall in this part of Kansas.

                Definitly Chili season here in Alaska!! Haven't broke 65 degrees for I don't know how long. I made a batch of chili a few weeks ago and put 3, one gallon bags in the freezer. I will have chili for the mext couple of months. I haven't come across a good bowl of chili since I have been here.(except mine)

                Do you eat it over spaghetti?

                  Hello All,
                  Niagara, I understand and celebrate with you the
                  joy of Chili season.  Traditions feed our souls as
                  well as our bellies.  I wish I could  have a bowl  with
                  you at Porubsky's.  I would love to know Porubsky's
                  unique taste and have the pleasure of your company.
                  Take Care,
                  Fieldthistle

                      I don't usually have it on spaghetti but I do make chili-mac with it . I like to add cheddar cheese and onions too.

                      I used to live in Topeka many moons ago and I don't think that I ever made it to Porubsky's.

                      I sell as much chili in the hot Summer as I do in the cold Winter, I never could understand the reasoning behind not having Chili on the menu because it's Summer, people who like Chili like it year round IMHO!

                          For whatever reason I make my own chili when the colder weather hits but I will eat chili coneys and chili spaghetti anytime at Gold Star or Skyline generally speaking any time of the year.  And I have found that Worthmore's Cinci Style Chili is excellent and I put it on my hotdogs at home a good bit.

                            Chili is one of those comfort foods that fit into any season, especially FOOTBALL season!

                            I just cooked a large batch (about 3 lbs. of meat) and like to freeze in a variety of quantities for different uses.  With 4 kids and the wife and I at work, small frozen ziplocs are great for a quick chili dog night, medium for frito pies, or large for a crowd.

                              Food is food - no matter what the season - I can eat chili all year round - I used to cook chili and soups and stews only in the fall and winter - now it's a year round thing----- I know lots of people that don't fire up the outdoor grill in the winter.  We have mild winters here but we still cook outside even when it dips below freezing or it's raining.

                              And we occasionally eat ice cream in the winter.

                                  Chili all year round, but I have to agree that chili season starts now, with the advent of college and pro football (especially pro). Thursday will be the first pot of home made, probably a mild eastern style, with ground beef, tomato and beans, light on the chili powder and heavy on garlic, onions, and green pepper. A starter batch, as it were.

                                    Do lots of folks put green peppers in their chili?  I didn't think it was that common.

                                      I do. Green ones, red ones, hot ones, mild ones.

                                        Do you use them as much as onions, quantity-wise?

                                            Sounds good.....hmm, may have to make a batch of chili this weekend.

                                            :)

                                              I do it because it tastes and looks good. I like to mix them up, like enginecapt does, but I happen to have some green peppers already; we were going to make stuffed peppers this weekend and then didn't.

                                                  In response to CTF who said that chili sells year around in his part of Maryland, twinwillow wrote:
                                                   
                                                  Not in my neck of the woods.
                                                   
                                                  I have a three  thoughts here or more. 
                                                   
                                                  I know of a place in Fort Worth with multiple locations and excellent chili IMO and they do not have bulk chili for take-out (frozen brick chili) available every where year around.   
                                                   
                                                  On the other hand, it would be interesting to know how Tolbert's sales vary seasonally.
                                                   
                                                  I can tell you that when I lived in Dallas, or visited while any Shanghai Jimmy venue was operative,  that I  went after that Chili-Rice every chance I got. 
                                                   
                                                  Maybe Dallas just needs the shade of Shanghai Jimmy making that stuff again!
                                                   
                                                  And someone correct me if I'm wrong.  I'm not aware that people whose heritage is from the Indian Sub-Continent do much in the way of adjusting their menus seasonally.  One of my favorite places to eat currently is a nearby Indian Vegetarian place and it always has a lot of customers.

                                                    Places down here sell their foot long chili dogs all year round.

                                                    How do Cincinnati chili parlor sales vary by season I wonder?
