The Illinois State Championship Chili Cook-off starts 11 a.m. Saturday underneath the Main Pavilion of the Christian County Fairgrounds.
Tom Calvert organizes multiple chili cook-offs throughout the year, but this time, he is competing.
Calvert is looking forward to cooking against some of the best chili cooks in the nation.
He often thinks about all the people traveling to Taylorville for the cook-off and how they transport their cooking supplies.
This is a sanctioned event through the International Chili Society.
Again, the Illinois State Championship Chili Cook-off starts at 11 a.m. Saturday at the Christian County Ag Fair. Calvert appeared as a guest on the WTIM Morning Show.
