    1 Tbs. garlic (minced)

    1 (28 oz.) can diced tomatoes and liquid

    1 (15 oz.) can diced tomatoes and liquid

    1 can Rotel

    2 cans (15 oz. each) pinto or dark kidney beans (drained)

    3 Tbs. chili powder

    1.5 Tbs. ground cumin

    1 tsp. cocoa powder

    1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

    2 bay leaves

    1 tsp. tabasco sauce

    1 tsp. dried oregano

    3 Tbs. Dizzy Pig Cow Lick Steak Rub

    2 cups beef broth

    1 cup dry red wine

    2-3 dried chili peppers (chipotle, ancho, etc.) to float on top

    salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

    wood chunks

    Preparation:

    Preheat your Egg to 350° with inverted plate setter (legs up).

    Place cast iron dutch oven on the plate setter and allow it to warm up.

    Add 2 or 3 fist-sized chunks of wood to coals.

    Add 2 Tbs. olive oil to dutch oven, then add the ground chuck and sausage (break up into smaller pieces with a wooden spoon).

    Close lid and cook for 1-1.5 hours, stirring every 10-15 minutes.

    Remove dutch oven from egg, remove meat and drain on paper towels.

    Return dutch oven to egg, add olive oil and sauté onions, green pepper, and jalapenos until limp. Add garlic and continue cooking for 2-3 minutes.

    Add remaining ingredients and cook, uncovered, for about 2 hours

    Remove bay leaves, dried chiles and serve.

    Made a huge batch using venison.

    6 lb's of ground venison and I also had a some shops and some steaks. I cut those pieces up and smoked then on the grill for about 2 hrs and then into the crock-pot while I prepped the rest.

    The juice went into the main pot as well.

    Picked up a nice undertone of the hickory smoke.

    I am loving it. Smoky venison chilli :popcorn:


  2. ...though I did laugh when Walt was able to get Jesse psyched by making him holler he was a blowfish. Good dark comedy there.

    "I AM A BLOWFISH!!!!!!":pickle: Great stuff.
    One of my favorite scenes so far.Good combo of writing, direction and acting.Love this show.He's some kind of weird anti-hero :blackdot:

  3. I'm about halfway through The Peoples History of the United States now. Pretty slow at the beginning, but so are most history books. I am just getting to the end of WWI so it is picking up and a bit more interesting.

    That is one of the books mentioned in that movie with Robin Williams and Mat Damon. Always wondered about that one. Is it very different fron typical history?

    I am about to finish Darwins Children by Greg Bear. Sequel to Darwins Raido. Near future Scifi about human evolution. His next book is Quantico-soon.

    Also picked up 'I Am A Strange Loop' by Douglas Hofstadter. He wrote 'Godel-Esher-Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid'. Facinating stuff on human concsiousness.

    I read Moving Mars and thoroughly enjoyed it, you seem like a big fan how do the rest of his books compare to MM?
    The Darwin books are the only Bear stuff I have read.

    Saw him do an interview on TV and found Darwin at the library when looking for Quantico.

    Is MM far-future hard sifci?

    Just finished Quantico. Good read. Near-future scifi based on Bio-terror. Very good read, pased well and researched.

    Moving Mars is waiting for me at the library.

  6. Gotta love grilling threads. Wonder if the 'blue smoke/white smoke' threads are still out there.

    I have been using the same grill (converted gas to charcoal) for years. I 'am one with my grill'.

    Hearing about the advantages of the ceramic coating of the BGE I am wondering if there is some kind of coating I can 'paint' on my grill to give it more heat retension.

    I live in Michigan and grill year 'round on my covered back porch.

    It would be nice to speed up my longer cooking items such as beercan chicken and pulled pork in the winter.

    Sorry for the hijack.
