We are having a chili cook off at the local Rod & Gun club this Saturday. I have a great venison chili recipe that I would like to convert and add some smoke to it. The recipe calls for ground venison. I researched the forum, found one hit that stated they brown the meat then place it in the smoker for 2-3 minutes. Also, I found the Cookshack “Wild Game Chili” recipe that cooks the chili in the smoker for 4-6 hours. I have made smoked baked beans this way and was leaning towards this method for the chili recipe. Any recommendations for a killer Smoked Chili method?
