Default Chili ideas

So I take my smoker down to the Temple Football games to tailgate with. While not a graduate of the school, it's pure fun. That's beside the point. The people on "Tailgate Row" have gotten together to have a "Tailgate Chili Cookoff" at the next home game. Rules are pretty simple, doesn't have to be cooked on site as you only get 5 hrs to tailgate anyway, and not everyone is bringing down a complete kitchen, after that they basically don't want you buying someone else's chili and trying to pass it as your own.

I'm not a huge chili fan, just never ate it much growing up. I was going to go with something along the following:

Cook up the onions/peppers/beans/sauce mixture the night before and put it in some kind sealable tupperware.

At the same time, smoke a brisket the night before, let it rest and then chop it up in a sealable bag.

During the tailgate, combine the brisket and the bean mixture into a disposable lasagna pan, and throw in the smoker to get a little smoke and to heat it up. I use applewood, so I don't think this will be too much smoke, but open to suggestions there.

In terms of the actual recipe, I have no idea. I figure onions/garlic/green peppers/a decent amount of jalepeno's, and one or two habenero's. Does this need any crushed tomatoes? do you really need much in the way of spices if already using the peppers for the heat? And I should be getting the smoke from the brisket in there. I guess i need to figure on the "color", but think that would come from the tomatoes. And pinto beans.

What do you all like to do with your chili?

I came here to suggest brisket. Smoked brisket takes your chili up a notch or two.

We like to do a variety of peppers. Anaheims, jalepenos, serranos and I really like poblanos in there. We like tomatoes in our chili, so I'd recommend that.

Here is my chicken chili. Pretty easy with a crock pot and I've won some inter office competitions. You can substitute the meat and its fine just adjust the other ingredients to the weight of the meat after its been cut.

Add ingredients in the order below:

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups diced onions
1 cup diced green peppers
4 teaspoons minced garlic
2 lbs ground chicken
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons basil
2 X 28 oz cans Diced tomatoes
15 oz can tomato sauce
1 cup chicken broth
1 can Dark Red Kidney Beans undrained
1 can Black Beans undrained
2 tablespoons diced jalapeno

Boil until preferred consistency

Side: Cornbread with 2 tablespoons jalapeno and 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro

Also a soup but more a chili if you want to smoke a chicken:

Remove the beans. You're making chili, not bean soup.

To each their own but on the contrary there are tons of chili recipes containing beans that I've seen.

You definitely want to add some chili powder (at least 2 tbls) and I like to add ground Cumin (1 tbls). A can of fire roasted diced tomatoes works too.

Unofficially or officially, something like that, chili shouldn't have beans. I don't think. I have put red beans in my chili though.
