Chili cooks from around the United States moved into the beer barn at the 88th annual Christian County Fair Saturday. Over 40 chili cooks vied for the best bowl of chili according to the judges. Judging was held for competition for both red and green chili as well as salsa. Top prize for the competition was one thousand dollars and title of the Illinois State Chili Champ. Regional Radio News was on hand for a live broadcast and talked with chili cooks from Rochester, Normal and as far away as Arkansas and Texas.
