Gumbo Chili Showdown Frequently Asked Questions
Questions for Teams
Each team will cook 10 gallons of either chili or gumbo, fresh, that Saturday on a propane burner. Cooking starts by 7AM and the event opens to the public at 10:30AM! (Sorry, no premixed or pre-cooked gumbo or chili is allowed. Electricity cannot be supplied and no generators or large batteries are allowed due to safety concerns.)
You will need a cooker with propane (enough for 8 cooking hours), pot & lid, and cooking utensils. The equipment should be large enough for cooking 10 gallons of chili or gumbo. Teams may bring their own drinks in an ice chest and chairs.
