Back in the 50s I think lemons were in, and lime was not used much, like it is now. Jimmy's recipe I think said to add the lemon juice at the end.

Oh, something else different was the way he said to brown the meat, all in one peice and turn only once. Laststand, you might know how this would change things. Maybe easier to drain out most of the grease?? Jimmy's was very non greasy.

        Hello All,
        PapaJoe8, this is a great site. There is so much I'm ignorant of doing. We will grow
        and learn together. I want to post pictures. It's not so much as this site, but how
        to put them on my computer and find them where I put them, then send them here. I am
        sure I will find the way.
        PapaJoe8, I always like your comments.
        Take Care,
        Fieldthistle

          Thanks Fieldthisle for the kind words. I have so much fun and spend WAY too much time here. We could just ask Roossy how to do anything here. She knows everything! Hmm, I guess someone could start a thread about "How to do things here". Or we could call it "Just ask Roossy!". Thanks again Roossy for your help.

          Oh, about the chili, I am really going to try some smoked oysters. Maybe I will try them first on the side, a spood of chili toped with a smoked oyster.

              Peeeeeshaw!
              I just looked around and taught myself.. Click on this, click on that..NOt much you can do to a PC..
              Just like when I first went online. I went to the library and self taught myself by playing around with it and asking the help there.
              However....
              I did get help with the photos from management here...
              Thanks Management, I think I have it down now.
              (imageshack is what I use)..
              There is a little tutorial on the Insider or Professional threads how to post pic's here that the Mayor and Sunny Funzio put on, and that is where I got that 411.

                I always add a can of sweet corn to my chili. My family loves it this way.

                  I flick a couple of cigar ashes in my chili (not by accident...lol!)
                  My best chili is made from multiple types of wild game I have in the freezer. I try not to let my wild game be frozen for more than 6 months. So...every 6 months or so, I clean out the freezer and make an award winning chili. Wild boar, turkey, pheasant, deer, duck etc.

                      Nah, just a heaping tablespoon of the leftover grounds in an 8 quart pot. I call that Red Eye chili.

                        Every time I see your name, I think of Papa Joes restaurant and marina in Islamorada, FL.
                        Your name brings back fond memories of living in the keys!


                        Nellie and Mikes Key Lime Pie!!! My first bite ever, and it cost me $5 for a slice of pie and cuppa coffee, and they wouldn't gimme the grounds for a pot of chili. Sheesh. Lucky the pie was awesome.

                            Well I like Grilled Cheese Sandwiches so I can dip them in my chili or with tomato soup. And yes to kidneybeans in chili,but NOT greenbeans.

                              FreeRider, hey, welcome! I am flaterd that you made your 1st post on my thread. I will have to try the grilled cheese diped im my chili next time, sounds good!

                              But, will you try some smoked oysters with your chili next time? I have been hooked since I thought to try it. Hmmm, I guess you maybe need to like somked oysters to begin with but???? Maybe not? One oyster, then dip the spoon in the chili, mmmm! A frito on top would be OK also.

                                    Ok, I didn't re read this whole thread but has anyone mentioned "hoppin John" in chili? Larry Rib makes some fast chili using it and posted the recipe at the "chili lovers" thread. Sounds good to me! Hoppin John has black eyed peas in it.

                                    Oh, Laststand, a smoked oyster on top of a spood of chili slides right down. No Tums for me. I eat lotsa jalapenos instead. Hmmm, where is that smoked oyster thead?

                                    This may be, thanks to all the great posts, and you smart roodfood folks, the best chili thread on the net!

                                      I always add beer to my chili, after browning the beef, onions, and garlic. A dark ale seems to work best. I also have added lingucira and andouie along with the beef. I make My own mix of chili, it in cludes chipolte, new mexico chili, hot and sweet paprika.

                                          I like to add a jar of Nopalitos.......cactus. It's like green peppers.....only better. Really ads to the chili. If you can find freesh pasilla peppers that is also really good.

                                              I know some of the above mention sugar; has anybody tried brown sugar? I never have; that's the reason for using tomato products as I understand it -- to slightly moderate the heat and smooth the flavors -- but I thought I'd mention it.

                                              A local cooking expert who professes to loathe cook-offs once revealed he had participated in one using alternative ingredients intended to mimic the usual ingredients in a chili recipe and came in second in the competition. His list of ingredients included fresh ground cumin and white pepper, fenugreek, grade one paprika, lovage root, sweet white vermouth (for deglazing), tamarind nectar, ginger, allspice, and cardamom. Other, more traditional ingredients were also listed. No, this was not a Cincinnati style chili cookoff!

                                              He didn't offer much explanation and no quantities. Ginger and clove he said are in many commercial chili powder mixes; allspice is simply a substitute for clove. Tamarind nectar was substituted for brown sugar because it has less likelihood of scorching and sticking in a big pot on a propane cooker.

                                              I tried adding some tamarind nectar to a pot of chili once but really overdid it. I'm sure everyone knows tamarind is a prominent flavor in Worcestershire sauce. I used about half of a 12 oz. can of Jumex Tamarind Nectar and it was too much; I'll probably only use a couple of ounces, maybe only a couple of tablespoons if I ever try it again.

                                              On the other hand, although I was disappointed in the taste of the chili fresh off the stove, chili always improves when it's reheated and I had no problem finishing off the pot over the next several days .

                                                Hello All,
                                                I always put brown sugar in my chili.
                                                This weekend I made a batch that I'm still not sure if I like it...want it to age a day or so more.
                                                I put raisins and Hokan Five Spice Powder, which has fennel seed, star anise, ginger, cloves and
                                                cinnamon, in addition to my regular recipe.
                                                I just keep experimenting.
                                                Take Care,
                                                Fieldthistle

                                                  Hey Field, I like the way you think! Thats some new stuff, maybe in the history of chili. Actually sounds kinda good although I have never had star anise. Most of my new experiments need some working out but... thats how progress is made.
                                                  Joe

                                                    I've come fond of celery, onions, red beets, turkey, chives, black beans, corn, and rice in my chili...

                                                        i'm so ashamed about this but i finally have to unburdon myself.
                                                        my mother would cut up 2 onions, cook them with 2 lbs hamburger, drain it off.
                                                        then add 3 cans campbell's tomato soup and 3 cans dark red kidney beans with the bean juice,
                                                        heat it thoroughly and called it yankee chili. we'd eat it with buttered bread.
                                                        it kept 5 kids filled in the fifties.
