Cinco De OBB Chili Recipe

History of OBB Hot Dog Chilli

The West family owned a Drive-In Theater in WVA. They had the best dog chili for miles around. This recipe is handed down from family to family. The only thing difficult about the recipe is that it is for the size of pot for the drive in theater. I have included the actual amounts I put in for the Cinco De OBB chili.
And the only way to eat a hot dog, for those who come from WVA. is chili and slaw.

Real Recipe: as handed down and as written:
10 LBS. Hamburger
4 Tbs. Garlic powder
Onion Salt
4 Tbs. chili powder
½ bottle Tabasco Sauce
3 Cups onions

Brown meat. Cover with water. Cook onions
1 gallon ketchup
Salt and pepper

OBB5 Hot Dog Chili:
6.72 lbs hamburger
3 Tbs garlic powder
2 Tbs Onion Salt
3 Tbs chili powder
1 full bottle of Heinz Ketchup 50.5 ounce, and ½ bottle of same (so 1.5 bottles)
¼ bottle Tabasco Sauce (Small bottle) adjust to your taste.
½ cup real onion chopped fine, and ¼ to ½ cup dried minced onion

Brown meat and chop into small bits.
Put into large stewing pan. (mine is 8 Qt. no stick)

I mixed all ingredients in a big bowl until even, then added to meat.
I also added small amounts of water until I got the thickness I wanted.
Now the rest of the Cinco De OBB will be the next BLOG.. I am goin to press the original blogger to post the story. But I will tell you that is was the best OBB to date.
