I've gotta say it's chili. Been around since the beginning. Barbecue is a late comer; it's fine stuff, but it ain't chili.

Brisket.

smoked meats probably pre date anything made with more than
one ingredient.

Texas makes great chili, there are cook-offs and the flavors are something special.

Barbeque is often beef brisket and is really only ok. The best barbeque I had was in Buxton North Carolina and it was pork. That was in 1992, and I still think about it.

Texas does make great smoked sausages of various kinds.

You can get great corned beef brisket in New Orleans. It's spicy and tangy and delicious and I would rather have brisket that way then smoked the way it's done in Texas.

Chili.

BBQing brisket came along as a way to best utilize the toughest piece of meat off a beve.

This is correct and honest. Smoking brisket is a great improvement for an otherwise horrible piece of meat. However, I think corning tops smoking as the best method of transforming brisket into something you want to eat.

Chili is the Texas signature dish over smoked brisket any day.

Guess it depends, modern chili con carne dates from the mid to late 1800's but it's roots are pre-Columbian.

Barbecue on the other hand has been in Texas longer than when modern chili con carne was invented.

I'm not from Texas but I'd say chili.

There's a guy from Texas up here. For the past 3 years he's entered our chili contest at the local cigar shop. He's won all 3 years. He makes great chili. It's funny though because he adds beans to it because that's what we do up here. He gets a lot of shit for it from his friends / family back home. But he wins.

Tamales. For certain.

There's something to what you're saying. I was born and raised here, and love Texas BBQ, but I recently had my eyes opened to the North Carolina style.

I ate at a place in North Austin called SLAB (slow, low and bangin) that does NC-style BBQ. The sauces are really different from what I'm used to. Really good, though.

Next time I'm in the Carolinas, I'll be paying attention to the BBQ.

You still haven't had chili.

In Big Bend Country, Terlingua, Texas, they have a chili cook off once a year. It's a special place. High desert.

Real chili is a special thing. You take a bite and it takes several minutes for wave after wave of flavor to percolate through your mouth. Your whole being is involved with the experience. Your forehead feels it, your nose, and even your scalp taste it.

You remember what is best is life. Flavor does that. Chili flavor.

It's about purity. Brought about by the right amount of spice, beef, and fat.

And that's just the first bite.

By the second bite, people are moaning.
Bedroom moans. Even polite people. Prude people. Even stubborn chili adulterizing yankees.
Cries of Oh God. Sweet Jesus. Mercy. And that's just the Catholics.

You can't get that with beans in there.

Beans destroy the purity. Beans destroy the essence of chili. Beans are flouride to chili.

Communists have sought to subvert our art. And in so doing, they have subverted your soul.

But they have not subverted the soul of chili. It is pure. Cleansed by pure flavor.

I eat beans every day. But I wouldn't think of putting them in chili. It's disrespectful. It's vulgar. It's just not done.

What would the world think if Texas made Giros with turkey? A philly cheese steak with mayonaise?

We wouldn't do such a thing even to food that doesn't reach the experience of chili.

Ready for a third bite? You damn better believe it.

But first some beer. Some chili is made with beer. No water must be added to upset the purity. Not even unflouridated water is good enough.

Enough with the beer. Time for more chili. The pot's big.

You will eat. You might hurt yourself. Nothing can stop that.

First prize. We found you. Dear God we found you.

That post is a hard act to follow.

I get a kick out of the whole beans/no beans thing on arfcom, but it's a non-issue for me.

I like beans. I like chili. I like chili with beans. I like chili without beans.

I've never made chili. I've never faced this choice. It's always been made for me by women. When a woman makes chili for me, all I got to say is Thank you, darlin. Put em in, that's OK. Leave em out, that's OK too.

When she makes me jalapeno cornbread to go along with it, I'm in love and I'm staying in love. The only one that's done that is my wife. She's not my wife by some accident.

Most excellent reply. You have a way with words. Or maybe it's just the chili speaking through you.

To be honest I gave him a hard time for using beans. Told him I thought real Texans didn't use beans. He said he was trying to fit in with us local folk. His chili honestly had the best flavor and heat of all 15 or so entries.
