THE RULES

● You must enter with a Jailhouse themed team name.
● Teams are encouraged to have signage with the team name.
● Teams are limited to a maximum of 4 people.
● No pre-cooked foods allowed. All cooking, including prep, must take place at the brewery.

● The Open Category may be prepared off-site. Examples include biscuits, dessert, jellies,
cornbread etc.
● Teams must provide all equipment & set-up including tables, tents, extension cords, cookers,

will win a $50 Jailhouse Gift Card.

● Each team may begin cooking at 6am at the brewery. Gates to the public will open at 12pm. Our team will come around to pick-up your chili for the judges promptly starting at 11:45p so your chili needs to be in the designated container we give you, by this time.

your recipe.
