In what is shaping up to be a "heated battle," contenders for the right to call themselves the best "Texas Chili Maker in Bali" are preparing to pit their cooking skill in Bali's "2012 Texas Chili Cook-off" to be held at the appropriately-named Melting Pot Game Room Pub in Ubud, Central Bali.

The fun gets underway on Sunday, February 19, 2012, with the public invited to drop by and sample the cooking of contestants vying to prepare their rendition of "the best down-home chili recipes" in a friendly competition among island friends.

The "Text Chili Cook-off" is a long-standing Texas tradition involving a large group of chili aficionados cooking up pots of bubbling, spicey chili while at the same time playing to the crowd, trying to impress the panel of judges and gathered spectators with their kitchen acumen. Each recipe must be prepared on site from scratch with the final selection made via a blind tasting.

Entrants can compete as individuals or as teams. Showmanship also counts with teams encouraged to bring props, create suitable costumes and even bring supporting teams of Texas cheerleaders to help sway the popular vote category in support of their spiced creation.

Professional contestants and local restaurants are also invited to try to win "bragging rights" by entering to win the competition, now in its second year in Bali.

Competition will take place in three categories: CASI (Chili Appreciation Society International), freestyle and vegetarian-  together with a special and coveted "People's Choice Award.

The February 19th event is a warm up to the main event - the 2nd Annual Texas Chili Cook-off scheduled to be held in Ubud on October 21, 2012.

Come to Ubud on February 19, 2012, to compete or merely to taste the best chili recipes on the island. The day will include live music, cold beer and organized games.

The Melting Pot Game Room Pub is located on Jalan Pengoseka Hanoman, across the road from Indian Delight Restaurant, in downtown Ubud.
