There’s expected to be many chilis to try and great prizes to be won. There was even a trucker hat design contest for the official Chili Cookoff logo. And with over twenty entries, this beautiful winning design at right took the cake… Or I should say – chili.

Now, while prepping my chili-recipe, I was trying to think of a good name for my cookoff team and even the chili itself and remembered that there’s been some really funny names submitted by entrants in years past. Plus our customers who have entered their own cookoffs have made shirts with clever names for their chilis and cookoff teams. So after perusing through some customer orders, past cookoff entries, and brainstorming a few funny names with colleagues, we compiled a list of our favorites to share.

Check them out. Feel free to borrow one for your cookoff t-shirts or personalized aprons and look your best at your chili cookoff extravaganza – so that if you don’t win, you’ll still be stylin’.
