Terlingua No Chance Chili Cookout &
Eggs for ALS Fundraiser
November 5, 2022

We can't be in Terlingua this year for the 55th Original Terlingua International Championship Chili Cook-off, but we decided to cook some chili anyway and imagine we were looking at the Chisos Mountains. We'll open the Snake Prairie gates from Noon-3p on Saturday where you can get a bowl of chili AND make a donation to the ALS Association of Texas, which is the beneficiary of the Tolbert chili cook-off each year. And Country Chick Farms will host the "Eggs for ALS" benefit, where all on-site sales from their farm eggs will go to the charity. We hope to see you at the Big Black Barn!

Congrats to our inaugural Chili Jam champion, Ron Faulstich of Lockhart. Here he is with the Rose Cup, and his name will forever be the first etched upon it. What a good day of chili! See you in Terlingua, Ron!
